A note on George H.W. Bush and the JFK story

A reader, Laura, takes issue with my recent post exculpating the late President Bush from involvement in the Kennedy assassination. Upon reflection, I think she makes two very good points.

George H. W. Bush, CIA director
George H. W. Bush, CIA director and future president

One is about the definition of evidence. Certainty is not required, it is true.

The second concerns a point I had scanted: the declassified Bush records make it clear that someone thought it important to brief George H. Bush about the Miami Cubans under investigation after JFK was killed. I should have noted this fact.

Who thought that Bush needed to know and why they thought he needed to know is an interesting and potentially important fact. I still don’t see what it tells us about the causes of the assassination but it is a salient point I should have mentioned. My conclusion was too sweeping. Thanks Laura.

Here’s Laura’s note:

Now is a good time to lay to rest the JFK conspiracy theories about George Bush

(This post was first published on the JFK Facts blog, in different form under a different headline, in March 2013)

The theory that the late President Bush was somehow complicit in JFK’s death has often been heard in the comments section of this site. Exactly how he was involved is rarely explained.

Four claims are adduced to support this theory:

Didn’t do It: George H.W. Bush was not involved in JFK’s assassination

(This piece was posted, in different form in March 2016)

It is true that former president George H.W. Bush was in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. It is true that Bush became director of the CIA in 1976. But, rest assured, G H.W. Bush did not supervise gunmen in Dealey Plaza.

Jeb Bush ‘s JFK moment

One question facing Republican presidential candidate Jeb BUsh  is whether he would, as president, allow U.S. government agencies to continue to withhold 3,600 JFK assassination records from public view after their scheduled release in October 2017.

One reader thinks President Jeb Bush would decide in favor of JFK secrecy. He calls attention to what Jeb’s father said on the issue, particularly George H.W. Bush’s signing statement attached to the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Act.

The first President Bush stated: Read more

What is the CIA hiding about Orlando Bosch?

Orlando Bosch fled Cuba in the early 1960s and settled in Miami and began working with the CIA. For decades, he used the United States as a base for attacks on Cuban civilians and Cuban government targets. Read more

Focus on the CIA, not George H.W. Bush

The “George H. W. Did It” theory is a way of expressing suspicion of the Bush family and the CIA. It is a way to say the Bushes are not a legitimate political dynasty. It is a way of encouraging suspicion of the the agency and the U.S. government: a future CIA director was in Dealey Plaza. How scary is that?

Exchange on the ‘Bush did it’ theory

Ralph CInque writes:

“I think Mr. Morley is being a bit dismissive of the George HW Bush claim. There really is very good correlation between the figure on the sidewalk in front of the TSBD and George HW Bush, including posturally. So, it isn’t just a facial match; it’s the body that matches as well. But, the case involves so much more than the matching images. It includes George HW Bush interacting with police that day, where he was briefly detained. And it includes all the fishy stuff he said afterwards which makes you realize he’s hiding something. And no, he was not a national figure at the time that most people would recognize. When he ran for President in 1979, millions of Americans hadn’t heard of him and didn’t recognize him.”

Morley responds:

Bush’s bad faith

After more than forty comments, I remain thoroughly unimpressed with the claim that George H.W. Bush was somehow (it is still not specified how) had some role (what role?) in the assassination of JFK. More prudent readers say Bush covered up the truth during his one year tenure as CIA director in 1976-77.

The few factoids offered in rebuttal to my post would not sway the average interested citizen, much less a jury. But one is worth noting. Read more

Didn’t do it: More on the role of George H.W. Bush in the events of 1963

Russ Baker takes exception to our post of November 25, “Didn’t Do It: George H.W. Bush.” His comment is published in full beneath the post, but since his response has merit, I want to give it prominent treatment here as well.

Russ rightly objects to my linking his reporting about Bush and the JFK story with John Hankey’s video on the same subject. He says:

“To try and distract people from a TON of documented, footnoted evidence on HW Bush’s covert work in Dallas with CIA circa 11/22 by falsely suggesting that I–or anyone–is stupid enough to believe that Bush would be an actual triggerman, well, that’s just beyond the pale.”

My apologies. Russ’s views are clearly different Read more
