Bush should remember Poppy

Presidential Determination No. 2006–23 of September 13, 2006: Continuation of the Exercise of Certain Authorities under the Trading with the Enemy Act

This determination extends for one year the authorities to control certain foreign assets, transactions, and, of course, Cuban assets and transactions.

Oddly, or ironically, in October of 1942, under the Trading With the Enemy Act, the U.S. government halted operations at New York's Union Banking Corporation. A bank official was charged with "Running Nazi front groups in the United States."

His name: Prescott Bush.

Prescott Bush, father of future U.S President George Herbert Walker Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush, had been hard at work on behalf of his Nazi partners. In flagrant violation of U.S. law, Prescott Bush had worked tirelessly to launder money, procure raw materials, arrange transportation and provide guidance for the Nazi war effort and the German army he had helped to build.

For you skeptics, here is a link to an article from the British paper The Guardian about this topic
