Venezuela Denounces Bush Family Ties with Terrorists
Like father like son--two banana Republicans.

<clips>

Caracas, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) Vice President of Venezuela Jos Vicente Rangel has accused the Bush family of ties with terrorists, especially criminal Luis Posada Carriles.

As CIA chief, George Bush, Sr. sponsored terrorism and later, as President, he pardoned some terrorists including Orlando Bosh, Rangel pointed out during Friday"s launching of the fourth edition of "Pusimos la Bomba...y qu? (We Planted the Bomb... So What?).

The book, by journalist Alicia Herrera, confirms Bosh and Posada Carriles" involvement in the 1976 blowing up of a Cuban civil plane that killed all 73 people onboard.

Current US President George W. Bush, who is trying to protect Posada Carriles, continues pursuing his father"s policy, the Venezuelan top official denounced.

3. Include Jebbie in there too,
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 09:28 PM by Say_What
he lobbied Old Bush to pardon Bosch-Avila when he was Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's campaign manager. Cubans on the island refer to her as the 'She Wolf'.

<clips>

....Newly declassified CIA and FBI documents implicate Posada in the 1976 bombing, saying he attended planning sessions in Venezuela. The documents also say Posada, a former Venezuelan security official, was on the CIA payroll in the 1960s.

Orlando Bosch Avila, another man the documents connect to the bombing, lives in Miami. A Venezuelan court acquitted Bosch in the case, and when he returned to the United States the first President Bush pardoned him before the Justice Department could attempt to deport him.

7. Marvin Bush: director at WTC security company
Published on Tuesday, February 4, 2003 by the Prince George's Journal (Maryland)
Bush-Linked Company Handled Security for the WTC, Dulles and United
by Margie Burns
http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0204-06.htm


George W. Bush's brother was on the board of directors of a company providing electronic security for the World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport and United Airlines, according to public records. The company was backed by an investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corp., also linked for years to the Bush family.

The security company, formerly named Securacom and now named Stratesec, is in Sterling, Va.. Its CEO, Barry McDaniel, said the company had a ``completion contract" to handle some of the security at the World Trade Center ``up to the day the buildings fell down."

It also had a three-year contract to maintain electronic security systems at Dulles Airport, according to a Dulles contracting official. Securacom/Stratesec also handled some security for United Airlines in the 1990s, according to McDaniel, but it had been completed before his arriving on the board in 1998.

McDaniel confirmed that the company has security contracts with the Department of Defense, including the U.S. Army, but did not detail the nature of the work, citing security concerns. It has an ongoing line with the General Services Administration - meaning that its bids for contracts are noncompetitive - and also did security work for the Los Alamos laboratory before 1998.

It isn't called "Bush Family Evil Empire" for nothing..

4. I hope Rangel will open the topic of Posada's work for both the CIA
and the Venezuelan secret police which was, I believe, simultaneous. Not positive, but I believe he worked for both entities together. There is at least one witness of whom I've read who has stated that Luis Posada Carriles ordered him tortured and his friend, as well.

If he delves into this there are going to be some wildly P.O.'d right-wing government officials around here.

5. The Bush Family's Favorite Terrorist
Lots of background in this article...

<clips>

While the Bush administration holds dozens of suspected Muslim terrorists on secret or flimsy evidence, one of the worlds most notorious terrorists slipped into the United States via Mexico and traveled to Florida without setting off any law enforcement alarms.

Though the terrorists presence has been an open secret in Miami, neither President George W. Bush nor Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has ordered a manhunt. The U.S. press corps has been largely silent as well.

The reason is that this terrorist, Luis Posada Carriles, was a CIA-trained Cuban whose long personal war against Fidel Castros government is viewed sympathetically by the two Bush brothers and their father. When it comes to the Bush family, Posada is the epitome of the old saying that one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter.

The Bush administration which has imprisoned Jose Padilla and other alleged Muslim enemy combatants without trial has taken a far more lenient approach toward the 77-year-old Posada, who is still wanted in Venezuela for the bombing of a Cubana Airlines plane in 1976 that killed 73 people. Posada also has admitted involvement in a deadly hotel bombing campaign in Cuba in 1997.
