Coupmaster, George H. W. Bush's #2 man in the CIA.
Vernon A. Walters was a US deep politician and spook whom Russ Baker termed "George H. W. Bush's #2 man in the CIA".. He co-founded Brian Crozier's private intelligence agency, The 61.
Ross Surber of the US Department of State confirmed that Vernon Walters met with Colonel Rabuka in Suva two weeks before the coup in Fiji.. "The conversation was supposedly concerned with Fiji Army forces on UN peace-keeping operations in Lebanon. There have been many independent reports of CIA officers/agents in Suva at the time of the coup. David Robie (New Zealand Outlook July 1987, p43) adds another. He cites CBS news as having identified 11 CIA agents as being present in Fiji at the time of the coup. Evidence for the US embassy in Suva having advance knowledge of the coup is that riot shutters went up at the windows about half an hour before the coup took place."
