    Keeping a Curious Bush Secret


    August 12, 2011


    Exclusive: One of the strange mysteries from the Reagan-Bush era is where did George H.W. Bush go on one Sunday in October 1980 when some witnesses placed him meeting with Iranians in Paris. More than three decades later, Bush’s supposed alibi remains a state secret, Robert Parry reports.



    By Robert Parry

    More than three decades ago, on Oct. 19, 1980, then-Republican vice presidential candidate George H.W. Bush supposedly took an afternoon trip to visit a family friend in Washington, an alibi that could prove he could not have traveled secretly to Paris for treacherous meetings with Iranians.

    But Bush’s White House in 1992 – and his presidential library now – have refused to release the name of this alibi witness or even the address where Bush allegedly went. The insistence on keeping this secret has just been reaffirmed by Debra Steidel Wall, deputy archivist of the United States.

    So, rather than release what theoretically should be a fact the Bush Family would want out – proof that the elder George Bush did not engage in secret talks with Iranians behind President Jimmy Carter’s back regarding 52 Americans then being held hostage in Iran – the U.S. government is saying that only a costly federal court lawsuit can dislodge this historical detail.

    This should probably be moved to conspiracy theories. Its the old "Reagan made a deal with the Iranians to keep the hostages until after the election" story.

    Indeed. What is treasonous of trying to protect American lives abroad?

    Making deals with an avowed enemy of the USA when not officially empowered to do so.
    Yes treason.
    It appears that this is where Iran Contra started.

    Making a deal which prolongs the danger to American hostages is nothing to these people.
