Brought in as an outsider to reform the CIA, Bush’s real job - at which he was highly successful - was to staunch the flow of secrets out of it.

Nixon upgraded this job especially for George H. W. Bush.

George H. W. Bush was a US deep politician who headed the US deep state for over 20 years. He was also a shallow politician, becoming the 41st US president, and made himself CIA director.[1] Like his father, Prescott Bush, he was initiated into Skull and Bones. Soon after, he joined the CIA where his own gifts as a spook allowed him to capitalise like no one before him on his family connections.[2] He was effectively unmasked as a spook and deep politician by Russ Baker's highly recommended Family of Secrets.


George H. W. Bush was born into the Bush family, son of Prescott Bush and grandson of Samuel Bush.

“George H. W. Bush was such a pivotal deep politician because he bridged two separate worlds. He was a deep CIA insider, a lifelong intelligence operative, and he also came from an elite family and was intimately tied to the East Coast business elite. His father, Prescott, had been managing partner at the Wall Street investment bank Brown Brothers Harriman and also a US Senator. The Bush and Rockefeller families were very close. George H.W.’s grandfather Samuel had been business partners with John D. Rockefeller’s brother, and over the generation the Bush and Rockefeller clans had remained close. Empowered with these dual networks, George H. W. Bush could work within the dark nether-realms of the intelligence community, as well as, the Republican power elite.”
Mark Gorton (2013)  [3]


Bush joined the US intelligence community (probably the CIA) early in life, although paperwork confirming the date has not surfaced, presumably because Bush as CIA Director had records of his early CIA career destroyed. His cover story of an independent businessman, involved many apparently unprofitable business ventures. These explained a lot of foreign travel, particularly to areas of the world where CIA operations were either ongoing or being planned.


In 1953 Bush Sr. set up Zapata Oil, along with business partners John Overbey, Hugh Liedtke, Bill Liedtke and Thomas J. Devine. Knowledge of his intelligence connections did not become public until much later.[2]

Operation 40

Fabian Escalante wrote in The Secret War: CIA Covert Operations Against Cuba, 1959-62 that George H. W. Bush was active in raising funds for Operation 40.[4]

JFK Assassination

Full article: JFK Assassination
George H. W. Bush has claimed that he can't remember exactly where he was on the day of the JFK Assassination, though at times he has said that he was "somewhere in Texas."[5]

Russ Baker's Family of Secrets is a recommended expose of a lot of Bush's connections to a small group of Texas oil men. He highlights their concern with the oil depletion allowance (a hugely profitable government measure which John F. Kennedy's successor protected) and to the Cuban exile community involved in the Bay of Pigs operation through the CIA's hit squad, Operation 40.

The Parrott Memo
Full article: The Parrott Memo
The Parrott Memo, referencing a call by one "George H. W. Bush"

The Parrott Memo is a declassified memo sent by a "George H. W. Bush" on the day of the JFK assassination. He suggested that he heard that James Parrott had been talking of killing JFK, which Russ Baker suggests may have been a deliberate leaving of an evidence trail.[6]


George H. W. Bush took control of the US deep state in the 1970s after successfully engineering the Watergate Coup and establishing his capability to keep a lid on the crimes of the cabal.

Watergate coup

Full article: Watergate Coup

Mark Gorton writes that after bugs planted in Nixon's office revealed that he was planning a purge of the US administration, George H. W. Bush successfully ensconced himself as head of the cabal that carried out the JFK Assassination by pulling off the Watergate coup and replacing the dangerously independent Richard Nixon with the controllable Gerald Ford. This ended a power struggle which had been brewing after the initial leaders had died off.

Director of Central Intelligence

Full article: Director of Central Intelligence

In 1976 Gerald Ford brought Bush back to Washington to become Director of Central Intelligence (DCI), replacing William Colby. At that time he was not recognised as a lifelong intelligence operative. Gorton summarises his brief but effective role in office as follows:

Despite his decades long involvement as a deep CIA insider, Bush was falsely brought in as an outsider who could reform the CIA. Bush’s real job was to staunch the flow of secrets out of the CIA and prevent the exposure of the truly explosive evil truths of the now multiple Coups d’état executed by the CIA.

Mark Gorton[7]

Peter Dale Scott points to 1976 as a singularly important year in the evolution of the US Deep State; the Safari Club was launched, and a large number of CIA personnel left during the "clean up" carried out by Bush. They did not, however, give up their tradecraft, merely offshored it as the deep state shifted operations away from the CIA, which in the 1970s had been attracting increasing scrutiny.[8]

Although DCI for just under a year, the Headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia, was named in 1999 the "George Bush Center for Intelligence" as if to pay homage to his key role as CIA plumber. At the naming ceremony, Bush said: "I left here some 22 years ago after a limited tenure, and my stay here had a major impact on me. The CIA became part of my heartbeat back then, and it's never gone away."[9]

Starting the "War on Terror"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “War on Terror”
Image credit: WhoWhatWhy

George H. W. Bush spoke on "The U.S. and the Fight Against International Terrorism" at Benjamin Netanyahu's seminal 1979 Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism. With other key spooks and deep politicians, he laid the clandestine groundwork for he "war on terror" which was to be so publicly be rolled out in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.


Bush was US Vice President under Ronald Reagan from 20 January 1981 - 20 January 1989, followed by 4 years as US President. In 1981[citation needed] Bush ordered the destruction of all CIA files about his earlier CIA career. The continued existence of The Parrott Memo suggests that he was unable to so cleanly the eliminate evidence from other US agencies.

October surprise

Full article: October surprise
Reagan October Surprise.jpg

In 1980 the October surprise was a secret deal to prevent the re-election of Jimmy Carter. In 1992 this was purportedly investigated by the House October Surprise Task Force, headed by Lee Hamilton. Hamilton (who was later to chair both the House Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran and the 9/11 Commission) concluded that the allegations were baseless.

The Enterprise

Full article: Stub class article The Enterprise

Mark Gorton claims that George H. W. Bush "set out to build a criminal organization without parallel in US history", which Gorton refers to as "the enterprise", a name given it by Iran-Contra conspirator General Richard Secord[7].

“The Enterprise was a massive 5000 person large hierarchical criminal organization with George H. W. Bush as its CEO. The Enterprise was a multifaceted criminal conglomerate that ran a large number of criminal activities including: drug trafficking, arms trafficking, savings and loan fraud, securities fraud, oil and gas fraud, insurance fraud, and real estate fraud. Embedded within the national security infrastructure and protected from prosecution by corrupted enforcement agencies like the SEC, FBI, DEA, ATF, etc., The Enterprise embarked on a massive criminal romp.”
Mark Gorton (2013)  [7]

The most serious public hint of what was underway was "Iran-Contra", which was nevertheless largely covered up (especially the drug trafficking angle).[10] Large numbers of mid level operatives (several hundreds, at least) were reportedly murdered in order to cover the tracks of the spooks who set it up.

Savings And Loan Fraud

Full article: Savings and loan fraud

George H. W. Bush was in charge of the adjustments to S&L law in USA which kicked off the Savings and loan fraud in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Neil Bush and Jeb Bush were also involved. Pete Brewton states that this scheme was a swindle with profits measured in hundreds of billions of dollars, and that profits from this scheme were used as seed funding for the arms/drugs deals referred to by the commercially-controlled media as Iran-Contra"[11]

"War on Drugs"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “War on Drugs”

In the 1980s, Bush managed a played a classic and highly profitable double game far as recreational drugs in USA; as US vice president he headed up administration task forces on deregulation and fighting the "War on Drugs",[12] as leader of The Enterprise, he was in charge of the US deep state's smuggling of illegal drugs into the USA.


Full article: “Iran-Contra”

Iran-Contra was a limited hangout of some of the CIA's off the books drugs for weapons swaps that illegally sent arms to the Nicaraguan contras. Bush may have intended to topple Ronald Reagan through this limited hangout,[citation needed] but Reagan was defended by staff such as Edwin Meese who were loyal to him rather than the US deep state.

The 1987 House Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran was chaired by the Chairman of House Intelligence Committee, Lee Hamilton, and chose to investigate neither Bush Sr. (who infamously claimed to be "out of the loop") nor Ronald Reagan.


September 11th

Full article: Rated 4/5 9-11

George H. W. Bush spent the night of September 10th, 2001 at the White House. The next day he attended the 2001 investor conference of the Carlyle Group, at which the "guest of honour" was Shafiq bin Laden,[13] a circumstance which was not made much of by the corporate media.

Mark Gorton infers from a range of evidence that George H. W. Bush was most likely the key organiser of the September 11 attacks:

“I have seen no evidence directly linking George H.W. (Poppy) Bush directly to the 9/11 attacks, but just as physicists can detect the presence of a black hole by the actions of other bodies around it, so the massive force of George H. W. Bush in the 9/11 op can be inferred. Many people extremely close to Poppy Bush were actively involved in the 9/11 op, including: his son oldest son, George W. Bush; his youngest son, Marvin Bush; Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Prince Bandar, the Iran Contra network, and the BCCI network.”
Mark Gorton (2013) [citation needed]

Related Quotations

CIA[Bush] wielded this heightened power on behalf of the military industrial complex that president Eisenhower had so famously warned against. Politicising the process of intelligence analysis, he imposed a systematic bias that took a new, harder line towards the communist block. This was a direct reversal of the Nixon-Kissinger policy of detente. Under the guidance of Rumsfeld, Cheney, a young Paul Wolfowitz and others who had ascended in the Halloween massacre, Poppy began finding ways to get around the analysts who did not sufficiently hype the Soviet threat. To that end, he created a second analytical team which produced alarming estimates of Soviet military capabilities. The concept was known as Team A - Team B. In this way, Poppy was the father of the analytical gamesmanship his son would use to justify war with Iraq nearly three decades later, under the guidance of the same Rumseld, Cheney and Wolfowitz.”
George Carlin“This whole country has a manhood problem, biiiiiig manhood problem in the USA. You can tell from the language we use; language always gives you away. What did we do wrong in Vietnam? We pulled out! Huh? Not a very manly thing to do is it? When you’re fucking people, you gotta stay in there and fuck them good! Fuck ‘em all the way! Fuck ‘em ‘til the end! Fuck ‘em to death! Fuck ‘em to death! Fuck ‘em to death! Stay in there and keep fucking them until they’re all dead! We left a few women and children alive in Vietnam and we haven’t felt good about ourselves since. That’s why in the Persian Gulf George Bush had to say “this will not be another Vietnam!” He actually used these words, he said: “This time, we’re going all the way!” Imagine, an American president using the sexual slang of a 13-year-old to describe his foreign policy. If you wanna know what happened in the Persian Gulf, just remember the names of the two men who were running that war: Dick Cheney and Colin Powell… somebody got fucked in the ass!”George Carlin
George Carlin“(in New York) I really haven't seen this many people in one place since they took the group photographs of all the criminals and lawbreakers in the Ronald Reagan Administration. Two-hundred and twenty-five of 'em, so far! 225 different people in the Ronald Reagan administration have either quit, been fired, arrested, indicted, or convicted of either breaking the law or violating the ethics code! These are the same people who were elected with the help of the moral majority. Elected with the help of the moral majority and the Teamsters union. That's a good combination! Organized religion and organized crime working together to help build a better America.”George Carlin
Contadora Island“Surely you've heard the rumors about why Noriega was taken down and today rots in a U.S. prison."

"I've heard that he had cameras on Contadora Island." It was an infamous resort off Panama's coast, a "safe haven" where U.S. businessmen could treat politicians to every conceivable vice. I had visited—and used—Contadora several times during my EHM days.

"You heard who got caught by those cameras?"

"Rumors that George W. was photographed doing coke and having kinky sex during the time his father was president." There was a theory in Latin America that Noriega had used incriminating photos of the younger Bush and his cronies to convince the older Bush, the president, to side with the Panamanian administration on key issues. In retaliation, H. W. invaded Panama and hustled Noriega off to a Miami prison. The building housing Noriega's confidential files had been incinerated by bombs; as a side effect, more than two thousand innocent civilians were burned to death in Panama City that day in December 1989. Many people claimed that this theory offered the only logical explanation for violently attacking a nation without an army and that posed no threat to the United States.
Jose nodded. "From where I sit, those rumors ring awfully true. I've experienced things that take them out of the realm of fantasy." He cocked his head. "So have you." He paused, looking around. "And it terrifies me."
