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.

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

Why do you belittle a potentionally treasonous act?
Treasonous?
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.
Article 3, US Constitution:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Not according the US legal system. One is innocent until proven guilty in the US... unless that standard only applies to Democrats now? Did the law change?

More partisan bullshit from the Queen of Partisan Bullshit.

Idiot.

TruthDon'tMatter, why do you hate due process? What is wrong with 'innocent until proven guilty'?

if this is true, then I want to know why GHWB or anyone else with half a clue wasn't sent to Moscow to keep the Soviets out of Afghanistan

Jimmy Carter's appeasement of dictators was treasonous and horribly ineffective.
