53. See My Post #49
Hi leveymg. Thanks for your post and questions. Sometimes I think I'm the John Wilbur Cash of the DU. He wrote one my of all-time favorite books in 1940, "The Mind of the South" without one single footnote, reference, nothing. Historians call it "literature" and those in the field of literature insist it is "history". Nonetheless, what he wrote was all factual. LOL! There is ample information available on the bin Ladens and the Bush family, but still, your questions made me go back into my aged mind and see what I could provide for you:

See post #49. I knew it was Tarpley who had so well documented the 1964 Texas Senatorial race, but it took me a bit to find it. And it was not Bentsen, but Yarborough. (I grew up in Houston and so I remember a lot of this, too.) I especially remember GHB trying to appease the John Birch Society and the Hunt family wing of the Texas GOP along with racist voters and still wear his New England Rockefeller blue-blood suits. I had family that supported GHW Bush. Yarborough was one of my heroes back then, which is why I am mad at myself for confusing him with Bentsen. Yarborough was tossed out of the Democratic National Convention in 1968 in Chicago because he opposed the War in Vietnam.

You are right about Bath, who I believe was actually a "registered foreign agent" when he was working for the bin Ladens. I think that is is apparent the Bush and Baker have been the point persons for the Saudis all these many years. Certainly, the Bush/Baker team also played much the same role for the Kuwait dictatorship, too. While I'm yakking about Baker, there are two somewhat awkward roles he has played in this regard since 2000: a.) he was on his way for a planned and long hunting trip with the Saudis which he had to cancel in order to spearhead GWB's election theft in Florida in 2000 (jet service provided by Enron and Halliburton); b.) he took a role in defending the Saudis against the 9/11 widows. leveymg, you touched on Dresser Industries and it being part of GHB's "springboard", so I figure you are aware of that entire pandora's box. GHB's long claimed hard tale about traveling to Midland in an old car was hogwash and that he arrived on a private jet owned by Dresser which later was picked up by Halliburton under Cheney thereby absorbing all of the asbestos liability which was later absorbed by the U.S. taxpayers under GWB's administration and a Republican Congress.
