Dave Emory For The Record #730 Interview with Russ Baker (Author of “Family of Secrets”)

Not only does Fam­ily of Secrets treat the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy in the fac­tual his­tor­i­cal con­text in which in actu­ally occurred, Baker’s inves­ti­ga­tion impli­cates George H.W. Bush in the event, pos­si­bly as a principal.

It is highly unusual for a book that vio­lates taboos to gain the rel­a­tive accep­tance that this book has received.

  1. I am slowly working my way through Baker’s FAMILY OF SECRETS. The book is really more like an encyclopedia of the Shadow Government than an expose. I am about 2/3 through and it seems I’m just getting to the good bit now. The chapter “Poppy’s Proxy and the Saudis” talks in detail about the extensive business (oil and weapons) ventures Bush senior personally set up with the Saudi royal family in 1976 while he was CIA director. Part of this arrangement involved Saudi assistance in setting up an “off-the-books” intelligence operation in the Middle East involving Saudi, Pakistani, Afghan and Iranian nationals. This was in direct response to the Church Committee making a lot of CIA covert operations illegal after Watergate. Bush continued to expand this “off-the-books” network after Carter fired him as CIA director and used it (in Iran-Contra) to illegally sell weapons to Iran to fund the Nicaraguan Contras. In 1979, when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, Bush drew the Pakistani intelligence service (ISI) into this network and got it legitimatized as an official CIA operation to promote fundamentalist Islam among Afghan “freedom fighters” to drive the Soviets out.

    The evidence Baker has assembled leaves absolutely no doubt that Bush senior was the ultimate architect and is ultimately responsible for the fanatical, Islamic intelligence cut-out that provided the pretext for a fiendish scheme to fly 747s into the Twin Towers.

    In my recent memoir THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE ( I write about my own close encounter with some of the psychopaths in Bush's domestic intelligence network. I currently live in exile in New Zealand.
