Oliver North.jpg
Lt. Col. Oliver North is sworn in July 7, 1987, before the congressional committee investigating the Iran-contra affair.

In 1987 George H. W. Bush's Enterprise was winding down. Iran-Contra may have been a limited hangout intended as a coup to undseat Ronald Reagan[citation needed].

Iran-Contra

Full article: “Iran-Contra”

1987 marked the investigation of the Iran contra affair, which may have been a failed bid by George H. W. Bush to end Ronald Reagan's presidency.[1] It was however successful at keeping a lid on the emerging details about CIA drug trafficking and associated crimes of the enterprise. Oliver North was chosen as the fall guy.

A 1998 Washington Post short review of the case made no mention of either drugs or the name George H. W. Bush.[2]

Change of enemies

The Carlyle Group was set up, which was later to reap huge profits from the "war on terror" that would take the place of the USSR after the Soviet empire unravelled.

 

Events

EventDateDescription
Operation PaperclipA transfer of top German scientists to USA.

Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.

Operation Condor
InslawThe Inslaw affair was a complex financial/political fraud the full dimensions of which were never uncovered, but some of which were forced onto the official record.

Savings and loan fraud"The largest theft in the history of the world", carried out in broad daylight, with legislative assistance.
