Forget The Bush AWOL Story

Hmmmm?
Forget The Bush AWOL Story
From Ken at Brasscheck
2-12-4


Can anybody explain this one?

"Spring 1971:

Bush is hired by a Texas agricultural importer. He uses a National Guard F-102 to shuttle tropical plants from Florida."  http://www.motherjones.com/news/update/2004/02/02_400.html

That sounds a little weird, doesn't it?

Some possibly relevant background

By 1971, Florida was already a thriving gateway to North America for cocaine traffickers.

"The flooding of the market with cocaine after 1968 represented a threat to the established black-market amphetamine interests. But the United States Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, which in 1968 had from four to seven agents in its Miami office, increased its Miami staff to over thirty agents early in 1970-- and more were being trained."  http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/library/studies/cu/CU41.html

Let's really think "Spring 1971" through. You know, carefully form a clear picture of what the words used to describe his activities actually mean...

Tropical plants. From Florida to Texas. On behalf of an agricultural importer. (What kind of business is that?) Agricultural imports implies volume like coffee, beef, corn. You know. Commodities.

Now just how many "tropical plants" do you think could young Bush could have carried per trip to his agricultural importer client in a F-102 fighter jet?

Strange story, isn't it?

The strangest thing is that it may even be literally true.

I wonder if those tropical plants were already conveniently in powered form...

Or is it more plausible that young Bush was transporting rare tropical vines and orchards in the cockpit of a F-102 fighter jet to make a few extra bucks by serving the thriving tropical plants market in Texas.

Remember Southern Air Transport? The world's greatest cocaine trafficker?... It's based in Texas! and it is financed by the CIA, which is where dad worked since slightly before the Kennedy assassination till he became vice-president...
What was it hes was busted for? Was it for snorting?
This could be a really good story to follow up...
