Lis­ten:
MP3 One Seg­ment [1]
RealAu­dio [2]
NB: This RealAu­dio stream con­tains both FTRs 314 and 315 in sequence. Each is a 30 minute seg­ment.

1. This pro­gram high­lights the death of the author of a book that alleges that, among oth­er things, George W. Bush had busi­ness con­nec­tions with the fam­i­ly of Osama Bin Laden. (“Arkansas: Author of Book Dies” [AP]; New York Times; 7/21/2001; p. A10.)

2. J.H. Hat­field, the author of For­tu­nate Son: George W. Bush and The Mak­ing of an Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent [3], died from what police report­ed as an appar­ent drug over­dose. (Idem.) It is spec­u­lat­ed that Hat­field may have been elim­i­nat­ed in order to fur­ther obscure the Bush/Bin Laden con­nec­tion.

3. Dis­cussing [4] the evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries con­nect­ing Bush Sr., Bush Jr., ele­ments of the CIA, the Iran-Con­tra scan­dal, the oil busi­ness and the fam­i­ly of Osama Bin Laden. (“The Great Hunt” by Pino Buon­giorno; Panora­ma; 1/25/2001; p. 83 and “Bush’s Faus­t­ian deal with the Tal­iban” by Robert Scheer; Los Ange­les Times; 5/22/2001; p. A15.)

4. Next, the broad­cast reviews the close con­nec­tion between the Bin Laden fam­i­ly and king Ibn Saud, the founder of Sau­di Ara­bia. (“Mil­lion­aire, Ter­ror­ist, Fugi­tive” by Robin Allen; Finan­cial Times; 4/14–4/15200; p.10.)

5. Ibn Saud, in turn, was close to the Third Reich. (The Secret War Against the Jews: How West­ern Espi­onage Betrayed the Jew­ish Peo­ple; Copy­right 1994 [HC]; St. Martin’s Press; ISBN0-312–11057‑x; p, 21.) [5]

6. Ibn Saud was also close to Allen Dulles, who in turn was deeply involved with Third Reich indus­try and finance. (Idem.)

7. Dulles was also heav­i­ly involved with the Bush family’s Third Reich com­pa­nies.

8. The pro­gram con­cludes by exam­in­ing con­tin­u­ing links between the Bush fam­i­ly and the Sau­di roy­al fam­i­ly and relat­ed petro­le­um inter­ests. George Sr. has been involved with the roy­al fam­i­ly through the Car­lyle Group invest­ment firm. (“Elder Bush in Big G.O.P. Cast Tolling for Top Equi­ty Firm” by Leslie Wayne; New York Times; 7/21/2001; pp. A1-A14.)

9. The elder Bush has recent­ly been in con­tact with the Sau­di roy­al fam­i­ly on his son’s behalf, dis­cussing his son’s Mid­dle East pol­i­cy. (“Bush’s Father Con­tacts Saud­is on Son’s Behalf” by Jane Per­lez; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 7/15/2001; p. A5.)
