Iran-contra prosecutor (& Republican) Lawrence Walsh has died. Read his still-relevant statement on Bush I’s pardons nytimes.com/books/97/06/29…
One day the world will understand the role Bush Sr. has played in the deconstruction of America as it was. For him, it perhaps began with his participation in the assassination of JFK and his legacy still flows today with the impact of 9/11 and the power the CIA now wields in the world. But the family’s influence appears to have begun with his father Prescott, who was involved with funding Hitler before WWII. His actions and those of his close associates such as Dick Cheney have been at the core of the introduction of the police state and the deconstruction of freedom and opportunity in the United States, to the extent that it existed. According to the vivid testimony of Cathy O’Brien, GWH Bush was a paedophile and a mind control master. It is clear to me that some who worked closely with him are unaware of the truth of this man.
Today, he remains publicly feted. One day that will change – hopefully whilst the man is still alive and can experience people’s wrath.
