BUSH & THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK
THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION: THE NIXON-BUSH
by Paul Kangas
(From: THE REALIST)
A newly discovered FBI document reveals that George
Bush was directly involved in the 1963 murder of President John
Kennedy. The document places Bush working with the now-famous
CIA agent, Felix Rodriguez, recruiting right-wing Cuban exiles
for the invasion of Cuba. It was Bush's CIA job to organize the
Cuban community in Miami for the invasion. The Cubans were trained
as marksmen by the CIA. Bush at that time lived in Texas. Hopping
from Houston to Miami weekly, Bush spent 1960 and '61 recruiting
Cubans in Miami for the invasion. That is how he met Felix Rodriguez.
You may remember Rodriguez as the Iran-contra CIA
agent who received the first phone call telling the world the
CIA plane flown by Gene Hasenfus had crashed in Nicaragua. As
soon as Rodriguez heard that the plane crashed, he called his
long-time CIA supervisor, George Bush. Bush denied being in the
contra loop, but investigators recently obtained copies of Oliver
North's diary, which documents Bush's role as a CIA supervisor
of the contra supply network.
In 1988 Bush told Congress he knew nothing about
the illegal supply flights until 1987, yet North's diary shows
Bush at the first planning meeting Aug. 6, 1985. Bush's "official"
log placed him somewhere else. Such double sets of logs are intended
to hide Bush's real role in the CIA; to provide him with "plausible
deniability." The problem is, it fell apart because too many
people, like North and Rodriguez, have kept records that show
Bush's CIA role back to the 1961 invasion of Cuba. (Source: The
Washington Post, 7/10/90).
That is exactly how evidence was uncovered placing George Bush
working with Felix Rodriguez when JFK was killed. A memo from
FBI head J. Edgar Hoover was found, stating that, "Mr.
George Bush of the CIA had been briefed on November 23rd, 1963
about the reaction of anti-Castro Cuban exiles in Miami to the
assassination of President Kennedy. (Source: The Nation, 8/13/88).
On the day of the assassination Bush was in Texas, but he
denies knowing exactly where he was. Since he had been the supervisor
for the secret Cuban teams, headed by former Cuban police commander
Felix Rodriguez, since 1960, it is likely Bush was also in Dallas
in 1963. Several of the Cubans he was supervising as dirty-tricks
teams for Nixon, were photographed in the Zagruder [sp, i.e.
In 1959 Rodriguez was a top cop in the Cuban government
under Batista. When Batista was overthrown and fled to Miami,
Rodriguez went with him, along with Frank Sturgis and Rafael Quintero.
Officially, Rodriguez didn't join the CIA until 1967, after the
CIA invasion of Cuba, in which he participated, and the assassination
of JFK. But records recently uncovered show he actually joined
the CIA in 1961 for the invasion of Cuba when he was recruited
by George Bush. That is how Rodriguez claims he became a "close
personal friend of Bush." Then "officially" Rodriguez
claims he quit the CIA in 1976, just after he was sent to prison
for his role in the Watergate burglary. However, according to
Rolling Stone reporters Kohn & Monks (11/3/88), Rodriguez
still goes to CIA headquarters monthly to receive assignments
and have his blue 1987 bulletproof Cadillac serviced. Rodriguez
was asked by a Rolling Stone reporter where he was the day JFK
was shot, and claims he can't remember.
George Bush claims he never worked for the CIA until
he was appointed director by former Warren Commission director
and then President Jerry Ford, in 1976. Logic suggests that is
highly unlikely. Of course, Bush has a company duty to deny being
in the CIA. The CIA is a secret organization. No one ever admits
to being a member. The truth is that Bush has been a top CIA official
since before the 1961 invasion of Cuba, working with Felix Rodriguez.
Bush may deny his actual role in the CIA in 1959, but there are
records in the files of Rodriguez and others involved in the Bay
of Pigs invasion of Cuba that expose Bush's role. The corporations
would not put somebody in charge of all the state secrets held
by the CIA unless he was experienced and well trained in the CIA.

Recently I interviewed former CIA liaison officer
L. Fletcher Prouty. He is a consultant for the excellent new movie
on how the CIA killed JFK, being made by Oliver Stone. He told
me that one of the projects he did for the CIA was in 1961 to
deliver US Navy ships from a Navy ship yard to the CIA agents
in Guatemala planning the invasion of Cuba. He said he delivered
three ships to a CIA agent named George Bush, who had the 3 ships
painted to look like they were civilian ships. That CIA agent
then named the 3 ships after: his wife, his home town and his
oil company. He named the ships: Barbara, Houston & Zapata.
Any book on the history of the Bay of Pigs will prove the names
of those 3 ships. Again, this is more finger prints of George
Bush's involvement in the Bay of Pigs invasion. Yet Bush denies
his role in this great adventure.
Why would Bush be so shy about his role in this
war? What is the secret? Is there something dirty about this war
that Bush & Nixon don't want the public to know about? Answer:
Yes there is. The same people involved in the Bay of Pigs were
the people involved in the Watergate burglary. Why was the Watergate
burgalarized [sic]? The CIA was trying to plug up a possible news
leak. They were trying to stop the Democrats from publishing the
photos of Hunt & Sturgis under arrest for the murder of JFK
(May 7, 1977, SF Chronicle.)
Presently, there is a law suit attempting to force
the government to release the records about the Bay of Pigs invasion.
Why are those documents still secret? Why are they locked in the
National Archives along with all the photos from [the] Dallas
assassination of JFK? Why are the 4000 hours of Watergate tapes
in which Nixon is babbling about the mysterious connections between
the Bay of Pigs, Dallas and Watergate also being sealed in the
National Archives? Is it because all three incidents are connected?
Yes. We must demand the secret files on these 3 cases be released
now. For a copy of the petition to release the files, please write
to: Paul Kangas, private investigator, POB 422644, SF, Ca 94142.
Thanks to Oliver Stone's blockbuster new movie on
JFK there is now sufficient national movement to reopen all these
cases. The White House fears Stone's new movie so much that they
have hired more CIA journalists to slander the movie & Stone.
Don't fall for it. Every serious investigator now agrees that
Oswald did not shoot JFK. That James Earl Ray did not shoot Dr.
Martin Luther King and that Sirhan Sirhan did not shoot Robert
Kennedy. These cases must be reopened so that Sirhan and Ray can
be set free. The only bar that keeps Sirhan in prison is the tremendous
anti-arab racism in Americans: in both blacks & whites.
According to a biography of Richard Nixon, his close
personal and political ties with the Bush family go back to 1941
when Nixon claims he read an ad in an L A. newspaper, placed by
a wealthy group of businessmen, led by Preston Bush, the father
of George Bush. They wanted a young, malleable candidate to run
for Congress. Nixon applied for the position and won the job.
Nixon became a mouthpiece for the Bush group. (Source: Freedom
Magazine, 1986, L.F. Prouty).
In fact, Preston Bush is credited with creating
the winning ticket of Eisenhower-Nixon in 1952.(Source: George
Bush, F. Green, Hipocrene, 1988).
Newly discovered FBI documents prove that Jack Ruby
has been an employee of Richard Nixon since 1947. That that [sic]
FBI document Ruby is listed as working as a spy & hit man
for Nixon. On Nov. 22, 63 Ruby was seen by a women who knew him
well, Julian Ann Mercer, approximately an hour before the arrival
of JFK's motorcade, unloading a man carrying a rifle in a case
at the Grassy Knoll from his car. Ruby later was seen on national
TV killing a witness who could link Nixon & Bush to the killing
of JFK: Oswald. On the Trail of the Assassins, Garrison, p xiii.
Richard Nixon was Vice President from 1952 until 1960. In fact,
Nixon was given credit for planning Operation 40, the secret 1961
invasion of Cuba, during his 1959 campaign for President
After Batista was kicked out by the starving people
of Cuba, and Fidel Castro came to power, Castro began telling
American corporations they would have to pay Cuban employees decent
wages. Even worse, Pepsi Cola was told it would now have to pay
world market prices for Cuban sugar. Pepsi, Ford Motor Co., Standard
Oil and the Mafia drug dealers decided Fidel had to be removed
since his policies of requiring corporations to pay market wages
was hurting their profits. So the corporations asked then Vice-President
Nixon to remove Fidel. Nixon promised he would, just as soon as
he'd won the 1960 elections against some underdog, an unknown
Democrat named John Kennedy. It would be an easy victory for Nixon.
The polls had Nixon winning by a landslide. Besides, Kennedy was
a Catholic, and Americans would no more elect a Catholic President
than they would elect a woman, a black or a Jew. This was 1959.
Nixon told Pepsi, Standard Oil and other corporations who lost
property given back to the farmers of Cuba, that if they would
help him win, he would authorize an invasion to remove Castro.
To further impress contributors to his campaign, then Vice-President
Nixon asked the CIA to create Operation 40, a secret plan to invade
Cuba, just as soon as he won.
The CIA put Texas millionaire and CIA agent George
Bush in charge of recruiting Cuban exiles into the CIA's invasion
army. Bush was working with another Texas oilman, Jack Crichton,
to help him with the invasion. A fellow Texan, Air Force General
Charles Cabel, was asked to coordinate the air cover for the invasion.
Most of the CIA leadership around the invasion of Cuba seems to
have been people from Texas. A whole Texan branch of the CIA is
based in the oil business. If we trace Bush's background in the
Texas oil business we discover his two partners in the oil-barge
leasing business: Texan Robert Mosbacher and Texan James Baker.
Mosbacher is now Secretary of Commerce and Baker is Secretary
of State, the same job Dulles held when JFK was killed. (Source:
Common Cause magazine, 3-4/90).
On the Watergate tapes, June 23, 1972, referred
to in the media as the "smoking gun" conversation, Nixon
and his Chief of Staff, H.R. Haldeman, discussed how to stop the
FBI investigation into the CIA Watergate burglary. They were worried
that the investigation would expose their conection to "the
Bay of Pigs thing."
Haldeman, in his book The Ends of Power, reveals
that Nixon always used code words when talking about the 1963
murder of JFK. Haldeman said Nixon would always refer to the assassination
as "the Bay of Pigs." On that transcript we find Nixon
discussing the role of George Bush's partner, Robert Mosbacher,
as one of the Texas fundraisers for Nixon. On the tapes Nixon
keeps refering to the "Cubans" and the "Texans."
The "Texans" were Bush, Mosbacher and Baker. This is
another direct link between Bush and evidence linking Nixon and
Bush to the Kennedy assassination. In the same discussion Nixon
links "the Cubans," "the Texans," "Helms,"
"Hunt," "Bernard Barker," Robert "Mosbacher"
and "the Bay of Pigs." Over and over on the Watergate
tapes, these names come up around the discussion of the photos
from Dallas that Nixon was trying to obtain when he ordered the
CIA to burglarize the Watergate. (Source: Three Men and a Barge",
Teresa Riordan, Common Cause magazine, March/April 1990, and San
Francisco Chronicle, May 7,1977, interview with Frank Sturgis
in which he stated that "the reason we burglarized the Watergate
was because Nixon was interested in stopping news leaking related
to the photos of our role in the assassination of President John
After Nixon's landslide victory in 1972, he knew
he had to centralize all power into the White House to keep his
faction in power, not only to hold power, but to prevent the media
from digging into how he secretly shot his way into the White
House, just like Hitler shot his way into control of Germany.
The first thing Nixon did was to demand signed resignations of
his entire government. "Eliminate everyone," he told
John Ehrlichman about reappointment, "except George Bush.
Bush will do anything for our cause." (Source: Pledging Allegiance,
Sidney Blumenthal.) The reason why Bush will 'do anything"
is because his hands have as much of Kennedy's blood on them as
do Nixon's, Hunt's, Sturgis's, Felix Rodriguez's and Gerald Ford's.
This White House gang fears that if the public ever
realizes how they shot their way into power it could set off a
spark that would destroy their fragile fraud and land them in
jail. Other famous Watergate members of the CIA invasion that
Bush recruited were Frank Sturgis, E. Howard Hunt, Bernard Barker
and Rafael Quintero. Quintero has said publicly that if he ever
told what he knew about Dallas and the Bay of Pigs, "It would
be the biggest scandal ever to rock the nation."
Meanwhile, in 1960, Preston Bush was running Nixon's
campaign. Nixon was sent to South Vietnam to assure the French-
connection government there that if France pulled out, the U.S.
would step in to protect the drug trade from the GoIden Triangle.

In 1959, Vice President Nixon was flying all over
the world, acting just like presidential material. It was an easy
race for Nixon. Congressman Jerry Ford was doing a great job fundraising
for Nixon, as was George Bush. The rich loved Nixon. The media
picked up every bone Nixon tossed out to them. The biggest problem
was that Nixon was afraid to speak openly of his plan to invade
Cuba. The plan was a secret. No sense in alerting Cuba to the
coming invasion. But Kennedy was taking a harder line on Cuba
than Nixon, because Kennedy was not aware of the corporate/CIA
Nixon lost the 1960 race by the smallest margin
in history. At first Bush, Nixon, Cabel and Hunt decided to just
go ahead with the invasion, without informing President Kennedy.
Then, at the last second, at 4 a.m., just two hours before the
invasion was set to go, General Cabel called JFK and asked for
permission to provide U.S. air cover for the CIA invasion. Kennedy
said no. The CIA was furious with JFK but decided to go ahead
with their private invasion anyway. Due to poor intelligence,
the CIA landed at the worst possible beach. A swamp. The invasion
failed. The CIA lost 15 of its best men, killed, with another
1100 in Cuban prisons. It was the worst single blow the CIA ever
suffered. (Source: F. Howard Hunt, Give Us This Day.) Bush, Nixon
and Hunt blamed Cabel for asking Kennedy and blamed Kennedy for
saying no. They were livid with anger.
Nixon's corporate sponsors ordered JFK to make any
deal necessary to recover the 1100 CIA agents imprisoned in Cuba.
JFK did. Once the CIA had its well-trained Cubans back, they decided
to continue the invasion of Cuba just as soon as they could get
rid of that S.O.B. Kennedy. The 1964 election was fast approaching.
Nixon was running against Kennedy again. Bush, Ford and Nixon
knew that they had to get rid of JFK now, or else the Kennedy
clan, with Robert and Ted in the wings, could control the White
House until 1984. They decided not to wait until '84 to get back
in the White House.
The Cuban teams of "shooters" began following
Kennedy from city to city looking for a window of opportunity
to shoot from. They came close in Chicago, but couldn't get the
cooperation of Mayor Daley. But in Dallas they had an ace. The
mayor was the brother of General Cabel, whom the CIA blamed for
the failure of the invasion. The general prevailed on his brother,
Earl, and the motorcade was changed to pass the grassy knoll at
7 m.p.h. Hunt and Sturgis shot JFK from the grassy knoll. They
were arrested, photographed and seen by 15 witnesses. But the
media turned a blind eye to the photos, and for 25 years the world
has been searching for the truth.
On the day JFK was murdered, Nixon, Hunt and some
of the Watergate crew were photographed in Dallas, as were a group
of Cubans, one holding an umbrella up, like a signal, next to
the President's limo just as Kennedy was shot. The Cubans can
be seen holding up the signal umbrella in the Zapruder film and
dozens of stills taken during the assassination. After the murder
they can be seen calmly walking away. Nixon denied he was in Dallas
that day, but new photos and stories prove he was there.
Nixon claimed to the FBI he couldn't remember where
he was when JFK was killed. (Source: FBI memo, Feb. 23, 1964,
published in Coup d'etat in America, Weberman & Canfield).
Bush, too, claims he can't remember where he was. Jack Anderson
did a TV special in 1988 proving beyond any shadow of doubt that
two of the tramps arrested in Dallas behind the grassy knoll were
Hunt and Sturgis. After the murder, former Vice President Nixon
asked President Lyndon Johnson to appoint Nixon's friend, former
FBI agent Jerry Ford, to run the Warren Commission. Nixon also
asked LBJ to appoint Nixon's long-time supporter, Judge Earl Warren,
to head the Commission. LBJ agreed. Ford interviewed all the witnesses
and decided which ones would be heard and which ones eliminated.
It is no coincidence that Nixon selected Ford as his Vice President
after Spiro Agnew was ousted.
When Nixon himself got busted in the Watergate scandal,
Earl Warren offered to set up another special commission if it
would help get him out of trouble again. Ford, of course, pardoned
Nixon for the Watergate burglary but Nixon is still not out of
the woods. There are 4000 hours of Watergate tape. On the June
23, 1972, discussions with John Ehrlichman and Haldeman there
is clear evidence that Nixon is openly "confessing"
to hiring Hunt to kill JFK. That is why the Watergate "investigation"
went into secret session after Congress heard some of the tapes.
This is why only 12 hours of 4000 hours have been released to
the public. Did Congress realize that Nixon and Bush had openly
discussed killing JFK for stopping the air cover for the Bay of
Pigs invasion of Cuba? Remember, Nixon taped virtually every discussion
he had with anyone in his inner circle, including Bush, in order
to blackmail people later.
There is a photo of Bush reporting to Nixon in the
White House in 1968. It will be interesting to see what they were
talking about on that day, when the full 4000 hours are finally
released. The key to unlocking the secrets behind the 1963 murder
of JFK is hidden in the 3988 hours of unreleased White House tapes.
Bush was in Dallas the day Reagan was shot. (Source: George Bush,
F. Green, 1988.) That must have given Bush a flashback to November
