Jeb Bush, Oliver North and the Murder of CIA Drug Smuggler Barry Seal in 1986

A few weeks ago, Jeb Bush commented that he didn't think the "Bush" name carried with it any baggage. Really?? There is a name for this type of behavior; it is called "whistling past the graveyard."

Jeb Bush in 1986 was the 33-year-old chairman of the Dade County Republican party and he was up to his eyeballs in the Iran-Contra scandal. To get a taste of that read Al Martin’s book The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider (2001) and read about Jeb Bush’s dealings with operatives such as Al Martin, Oliver North, Richard Secord, Dewey Clarridge, Sam Watson, Fred Ikley and, of course, his father George Herbert Walker Bush. Basically Jeb Bush was in the center of a wasp’s nest of dirty dealing CIA/military operatives engaged in rampant criminality – all in the name of “national security.”
