Prescott Bush's protege Richard Nixon was in Dallas on the day of the coup d' etat that toppled John F. Kennedy.
Prescott Bush's son George H.W. Bush (of the CIA) was there, too.
Prescott's business partner, Allen Dulles (former CIA Director) was absent, but Dulles would be a player in crafting the official story of what happened that day because Lyndon Johnson would appoint him to the Warren Commission to prove that Lee Harvey Oswald did it alone.
A friend of Prescott Bush who had helped him raise money for Nixon over the years, Gerald Ford, was absent, too, but Ford would play the same role as Dulles, serving on the Warren Commission, shaping the story.
CIA Director Allen Dulles and Vice-President Richard Nixon had approved Operation 40, a plan to assassinate Fidel Castro. George H.W. Bush, E. Howard Hunt and a small group of Cuban exiles later known as the "Plumbers" were involved in the schemes of Operation 40.
CLEANING HOUSE AT THE CIA
The Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 three months after Kennedy took office was a fiasco, a public relations nightmare. Kennedy fired CIA Director Dulles. He also fired Dulles' assistant, General Charles Cabell, brother of Dallas mayor Earl Cabell (who would soon plan a motorcade route for Kennedy.)
KENNEDY IN THE CROSSHAIRS
Kennedy was despised by the CIA, the Cubans, the military, the organized crime bosses who had helped steal the election for him only to become the subjects of a Bobby Kennedy crusade; by Nixon, who felt the Kennedys had robbed him of the Presidency; by the military-industrial elite that had wanted him to invade Cuba again during the missile crisis of 1962.
Lyndon Johnson hated Kennedy with particular passion. He felt trapped in the Vice-Presidency and knew that he would soon lose even that because of defense kickbacks he had taken from his one-time protege Bobby Baker. Johnson expected to be dropped from the ticket in 1964 and feared that he'd wind up in jail.
Kennedy had hung the CIA out to dry at the Bay of Pigs, had ignored his generals in the missile crisis, had allowed 300,000 blacks to march on Washington. He was destroying America. Something had to be done...
TEN YEARS LATER
The break-in at Democratic Party headquarters in the Watergate Hotel, was done by E. Howard Hunt (who once worked for a Prescott Bush firm) and the "Plumbers." In 1972, the "Plumbers" worked out of the basement of the Nixon White House. In November, 1963, they had been in Dallas, in position to do what needed to be done--whatever it took--to save America from the playboy in the White House.
At the beginning of the Watergate scandal, in 1972, Nixon appointed George H.W. Bush chairman of the Republican Party.
On one of Nixon's secret tapes, he's heard saying he had to pay a bribe to Hunt "because he can blow up this whole Bay of Pigs thing"--meaning Kennedy's assassination.
(Hunt's wife Dorothy--also a CIA agent--was killed in an airline crash in Chicago on December 8, 1972, with $10,000 cash in her handbag.)
Nixon could have blown up "the whole Bay of Pigs thing," too. But there was no need. His handpicked successor, friend, former fundraiser and Warren Commission member Gerald Ford pardoned him.
Ford appointed George H.W. Bush to head the CIA.
"The truth about the Kennedy murder is namely that it was an ordinary coup d' etat. And what happens in a coup d'etat? The culprits seize power and take over the government. They also write the history about the coup." --Deventer Moordzaak, Kennedy researcher
George H.W. Bush standing beside the Texas School Book Depository, November 22, 1963:
"They were a part of the CIA, a part of Texan oil and weapons, a part of the Cuban exiles, and a part of the Mafia. All these groups are often presented as separate entities. Or as different suspects in the Kennedy Assassination. But the truth is that these groups were in bed together. It is known now that all these groups worked together to kill Castro and reconquer Cuba. It has become public record that the CIA had enlisted the mob to help, more particular Sam Giancana in Chicago, Carlos Marcello in New Orleans, and Santo Trafficante in Florida. They all had a clear and strong interest too. And the Bushes represent all those interests. Anti Castro, oil, CIA, war, and mafia also. And Kennedy stood in the way. He wanted to end their power. And they blamed him for the Bay of Pigs fiasco, for he refused the air support to wipe out Castro's airforce. And so the invasion army was slaughtered or captured. Kennedy was openly called a traitor. And to make it worse, he fired the top three of the CIA..." --Deventer Moordzaak, Kennedy researcher
"Remember Dallas was very small. It wasn't a metropolitan city. And in the afternoon the club wasn't open, but we'd go over, some of the executives from the ad agency (where I worked) and we'd sit there and play cards, but we could always find out what was going on. It was kind of a place to learn all. We were playing cards there one afternoon, and it was a couple weeks, I think, prior to the assassination, and Jack Ruby came over to us. He always called us 'Classy Guys.' And he said, 'Guess what I have?' And I glanced up and I said, 'What is it?' And he said, 'When that son of a bitch comes to Texas, it's the map where he's going.' " --Madeleine Duncan Brown, Lyndon Johnson's mistress
In the address book of CIA operative George DeMohrenschildt were the address of Lee Harvey Oswald and the phone number of George H.W. Bush.
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."--Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Speech
Southern trees bear a strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop...............
