THRUSH. That wasn't from any Bond source. That was from the first parody of Bond, specifically the TV show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. -- minor point, but it shows that Rush isn't always right. It's an acronym for "Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity" (not part of the series bible, but from a novelization).

Close, though--Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, "was briefly involved with helping to develop the TV show The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and is credited with coming up with that name."
