George H.W. Bush, the CIA and a Case of State-Sponsored Terrorism – Consortiumnews

Posted by M. C. on December 3, 2018

(Solemnly with a tear) George H. W. Bush was a great diplomat.

Don’t be fooled by the kind words. Bush was a typical inhabitant of the deep state/Military/industrial/bankster swamp.

He was a tool, then head of, the CIA. You don’t get much deeper in the muck than that.

He helped kill half a million kids in Iraq. I doubt you will hear this mentioned during the eulogy.

I am no JFK assassination buff but Bush angle and Bush phone calls have always peaked my interest.

So we have George H. W. Bush telling the FBI that he did not know the source of the information but knew that a John Bircher named James Parrott, who was the same age as Lee Harvey Oswald (24), wanted to kill President Kennedy in Houston. Bush did not know much about Parrott but gave the name of two Republican Party officials in Houston. Of course, Bush’s Zapata Off-Shore Drilling Company had been a CIA front since 1960 and had supplied the Bay of Pigs invasion (code named “Zapata”) force with two of his company’s ex-U.S. Navy landing craft, renamed the “Barbara J” and the “Houston.” In any case, Bush’s phone call to the FBI was a false lead, and Parrott was cleared.

However, Bush’s phone call creates more questions about him than about Parrott…

In early fall of 1976, after a Chilean government assassin had killed a Chilean dissident and an American woman with a car bomb in Washington, D.C., George H.W. Bush’s CIA leaked a false report clearing Chile’s military dictatorship and pointing the FBI in the wrong direction.

The bogus CIA assessment, spread through Newsweek magazine and other U.S. media outlets, was planted despite CIA’s now admitted awareness at the time that Chile was participating in Operation Condor, a cross-border campaign targeting political dissidents, and the CIA’s own suspicions that the Chilean junta was behind the terrorist bombing in Washington.

In a 21-page report to Congress on Sept. 18, 2000, the CIA officially acknowledged for the first time that the mastermind of the terrorist attack, Chilean intelligence chief Manuel Contreras, was a paid asset of the CIA…

Estimates of deaths due to sanctions[edit]

Estimates of excess deaths during the sanctions vary widely, use different methodologies and cover different time-frames.[8][35][36] The figure of 500,000 child deaths was for a long period widely cited, but recent research has shown that that figure was the result of survey data manipulated by the Saddam Hussein regime.[11][37] A 1995 Lancet estimate put the number of child deaths at 567,000,[38] but when one of the authors of the study followed up on it a year later, “many of the deaths were not confirmed in the reinterviews. Moreover, it emerged that some miscarriages and stillbirths had been wrongly classified as child deaths in 1995.”[11][39] A 1999 UNICEF report found that 500,000 children died as a result of sanctions,[40] but comprehensive surveys after 2003 failed to find such child mortality rates.[11] A 2017 study in the British Medical Journal described “the rigging of the 1999 Unicef survey” as “an especially masterful fraud”.[11] The three comprehensive surveys conducted since 2003 all found that the child mortality rate in the period 1995-2000 was approximately 40 per 1000, which means that there was no major rise in child mortality in Iraq after sanctions were implemented.[11]
