George HW Bush, "W"'s father, was appointed CIA Director in 1976 in the aftermath of Watergate and Richard Nixon's downfall, to "clean up the agency". It was "on the surface" a surprising appointment - George Bush Senior allegedly had no experience for the job and was considered a bit of a "preppy" lightweight.
But his is a carefully crafted persona which obscures Bush's extensive intelligence experience, beginning in WWII but honed at the sharp end of black-ops across Latin America, Middle East, Philippines and on US soil. From the Bay of Pigs fiasco to JFK's assassination and Watergate, George Herbert Walker Bush was always just "off-camera" but through an extensive network across the military-industrial media-academic complex (MIMAC) he wielded (and probably still wields) enormous power as king-maker and instigator of black-ops and cover-ups.
The Bush connections and engagement in power and money politics are forensically examined and laid out in Russ Baker's 2008 book:
The Bush clan's relationship with the Structural Elite (SE) is primarily via banking; George Snr's father, Prescott Bush, was a partner at Brown Brothers Harriman. There are other banking connections with Rockefellers, Rothschilds and Gammells, a Scottish private bank involving a mutual friend of George W and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. What is probably better known is the Bush affiliation with the bin Laden family, some of whom were flown out of the USA in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, in spite of a temporary ban on civilian aviation.
These nepotist relationships weave the web of power which runs the world and contaminate public service appointments in every sphere of government but nowhere more so than in the world of banking and regulation.

Behind the scenes, individuals like GHW Bush, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski and George Soros (who was also involved in some of the Bush oil related enterprises) manipulate and manoeuvre to cement and increase the wealth and power of the SE.
Where was GHW Bush on 22 November 1963? He was possibly in Dallas at the time of Kennedy's assassination but in spy-craft it is essential to build up confusing layers of complexity to obscure the truth. He was certainly in Dallas immediately before and after the shooting and many of the people in his network were in Dallas at the time. Cui bono? Bush's power base is Texas oil and the home of LB Johnson, Kennedy's Vice President and successor but the real beneficiaries were the SE because Kennedy was a threat to their power.
Elite power politics haven't changed since Shakespeare's time:
