210. Zapata could have been of
interest because of the following passage from "Plausible Denial" by Mark Lane, p.332: 'The name Zapata was Bush's good luck charm, symbolic of the two successful operations in his public career as a businessman. While Bush resided in Houston with Barbara and ran Zapata during 1961, the CIA planned the Bay of Pigs invasion. The top secret name given by the CIA to plan for the invasion of Cuba, known only to a select few, was "Operation Zapata"......'vessels from the Navy that he (Prouty) has located at a U.S. Navy storage facility utilized by the military. They were sent to an inactive Naval Base near Elizabeth City, North Carolina where the colors of the U.S. Navy were painted over. Train loads of military equipment were delivered to dockside while ships were being made seaworthy. New names were painted on the ships for their historic mission-the launching of "Operation Zapata". The new names were "Barbara" and "Houston".

Given our knowledge of the bushie today there are a few questions that need answers. Was Bush in the CIA at the of Kennedy's death? What role did he play in the disastrous Bay of Pigs? What did he have to gain if Kennedy was discredited by the failure of the Bay of Pigs? Did he have contact with Oswald?

I read the book long ago but think it gives a good overview of some of the possible conspiracy theories of the time.
