  •  George Herbert Walker Bush most likely had a (8+ / 0-)

    position or relationship with the OSS during WWII because of his father's connections to the old boy network through the schools he attended and the boards he sat on and the bank he was an officer in not to mention the relationship between his family and the Rockefellers and Avrel Harriman..

    Really, we have got to put a stop to the Bush political ambitions.  NO JEB IN THE SENATE..

    Also, don't you find it interesting that GW Bush locked up his fathers documents at the library in Texas and put his own documents under lock and key in that same library?  I do..

    •  I'll second that (6+ / 0-)

      The Bush family lust for power is only exceeded by its turpitude, as corrupt and depraved as aristocracies of old.  I hope this dynasty ends with W's reign of shame.

      The intrinsic nature of Power is such that those who seek it most are least qualified to wield it.

      combat missions in the Pacific War from Sept. 1943 to some time in 1944 or 1945.  He was then reassigned to Norfolk Navy Base and put in a training wing for new torpedo pilots.

      I don't see how he could have been doing for OSS during WWII.

      The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

      •  His ties apparently predate his entering WWII (0+ / 0-)

        If you read Kevin Phillips book on the Bush Family Dynasty, you will see where he points this out..Prescott Bush himself had ties to the old boy network..
