BBC Reports on Bush's Grandfather Trying to Engineer Facsist Coup in the US


The Whitehouse Coup
By BBC

Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen. The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression. Mike Thomson investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat to American democracy.

This of major interest to me - and I followed the link when "JoeMartin" first introduced it (Thank You, Joe!) - but the BBC page gives nothing more than the painfully brief and unelaborated clip posted here.

There is an audio link to listen to the program, but for those of us whose systems can't deal with "WMA" applets, does anyone know where there is a TRANSCRIPT OF THIS BBC PROGRAM?

Or, better yet, a COPY OF THE DOCUMENT ITSELF?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

There's precedent for an illegal coup: Perhaps Daddy Prescott passed on some hints in re 9-11: THe "big plan" to save America from a bigger depression, but with out a big war: Just a disasterous attack on people living in caves, and an assult on the Constitution.
