Bush, his fellow Bonesmen and their like-thinking elitist allies in the AmericanEstablishment see themselves as New World Order warriors, an American samurai casteof sorts, whose mission is restoring American greatness. They intend to utilize theinstitutional networks of the U.S. government and key private agencies, such as the NewYork Council on Foreign Relations, to advance their purpose.The Skull & Bones members believe in the idea of "constructive chaos." By keeping theirtrue policy intentions secret, by constantly sending out mixed signals on all critical policyissues, they consciously seek to sow confusion among both their nominal "friends" and"enemies" alike.The fulcrum for the policy of constructive chaos is, at present, the Middle East situation.Although U.S. military action in the region has for the time being subsided, America'smilitary power will remain a critical determinant in the future of that vital zone of conflict. American military power is aimed at securing undisputed control over the vastreservoir of oil -- not at necessarily fostering any permanent alignment of local states orcombinations of regional interests.If President George Bush and his fellow true believers are successful, the United Stateswill be first among equals in the New World Order. This is their goal. It is also the questof the Bonesmen of the Order of Skull & Bones -- America's warrior aristocracy.

They are not part of anynationwide public association. The other elite Ivy League colleges, Harvard andPrinceton have similar exclusive secret societies. Yet, even among these few universities,the secret societies of Yale -- led by Skull & Bones -- are unchallenged in their influenceon American political affairs.According to some accounts, the Skull & Bones secret society at Yale has anunderground affiliation with two other societies which were simultaneously founded at
