1. Dulles was also closely associated with the Bush family
I've posted about this on several threads lately, because it seems important:

The short version is that Prescott Bush hired Allen Dulles in 1934 to conceal the connections of his father-in-law (George Herbert Walker) with I.G. Farben. The Dulles brothers then continued working as lawyers for Prescott Bush and Averall Harriman through the Thirties, handling their dealings with Nazi firms.

It was Dulles who was primarily responsible in the early 50's for leading the CIA into the study of methods of psychological manipulation like those being used currently in Iraq.

(Also, if the suggestions that George H.W. Bush was CIA going back into the 1950's are correct, that would mean he was recruited when Dulles was its head -- but there is no hard evidence on the matter.)
