The Bush's Web of Deception
By Jerri Ann Lewis
The Presidential term of George W. Bush can clearly be classified as: a web of deception. Ties from our current president, his family, the bin Laden family, and the Carlyle Group are so strong that there appears to be a significant conflict of interest. Would that conflict of interest be even stronger if President Bush inherited his father's wealth earned from the Carlyle Group? To begin to find answers to this question one must first understand the Carlyle Group.
The web of deception continued when the Carlyle Group began reaping the benefits from the start of the war "against terrorism".
If the thought of all of these men working together outside the fishbowl of international politics makes you uneasy, you are not alone. Political watchdog groups, like the Center for Public Integrity and Judicial Watch, have long been howling over the potential for corruption at Carlyle. The company has been investigated by the FBI, excoriated by representatives, sued by political activists, and embarrassed by scandal."5
However, the company is still a powerful money-making machine that is perfectly legal. There lies the ultimate deception: the actions that are considered legal that ordinary American's can do nothing about.
Did President Bush fill his father's pockets by going to war? By going to war, could George W. Bush indirectly gain income from the bloodshed of thousands of American soldiers? This is serious "food for thought" as the 2004 election nears. This is also just the beginning of the web of deception by President Bush. Please, keep this in mind when you go to the voting polls in November.
