‘The Right Man’

There was a very interesting piece on ABC Radio National’s Breakfast show this morning about the religious influences on George W. and other individuals that form part of the inner sanctum at the White House.

There is an interview with Jeffrey Sharlet of killingthebuddha.com who spent some time ‘undercover’ in what is referred to as as ‘The Family’, a largely ‘invisible’ organisation that has supposedly operated since 1935 under various guises. It is meat and drink for conspiracy theorists, but frighteningly plausible. The good news is that it is possible to listen to the interview, so long as you have RealPlayer installed on your machine. See, also, a piece in Atlantic Monthly along the same lines entitled ‘In the Name of God’.
