Guardian Unlimited -- How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power

Well, sooner or later, someone had to admit this was NOT just nasty leftist paranoid fantasizing, although all the lefties are no doubt enjoying the hell out of this one ... and most of us libertarian types, too:
Rumours of a link between the US first family and the Nazi war machine have circulated for decades. Now the Guardian can reveal how repercussions of events that culminated in action under the Trading with the Enemy Act are still being felt by today's president "

And now it gets a public court hearing:

George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy."

But wait (as they say in those "you can't afford to miss this" ads)!
Now how much would a nasty leftist pay?
It gets better:

Remarkably, little of Bush's dealings with Germany has received public scrutiny, partly because of the secret status of the documentation involving him. But now the multibillion dollar legal action for damages by two Holocaust survivors against the Bush family, and the imminent publication of three books on the subject are threatening to make Prescott Bush's business history an uncomfortable issue for his grandson, George W, as he seeks re-election.

Well, perhaps the Bush-League can start a group, something like Swift Denying Nazi Defenders for Truth (or something intended to look like it) to spin this.
