The Bush Dynasty, America's Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years.

They're back!

Did you think that in 2008 you were saying goodbye, forever, to the Bush clan? Well, guess what? They’re back, baby.
 
Who engineered the 2010 GOP election sweep? Karl Rove. And who has he worked for throughout his career? The Bushes. Meanwhile, Jeb Bush is already being touted as a possible candidate for the White House in 2012. And George W. Bush is rewriting history with his new memoir.
 
Now is a great time to learn what you didn’t know about the Bushes, who’s behind them, and what it all really means. Deep, powerful revelations. Read Family of Secrets-the book Gore Vidal calls “one of the most important books of the past ten years.” And have your eyes opened.

Russ Baker on the PBS station WGBH, with host Emily Rooney

Russ Baker appears on the PBS station WGBH with host Emily Rooney to discuss the stunning revelations contained in his new book on the Bush Dynasty,”Family of Secrets.”

Interview topics range from George Bush Senior’s secret life in intelligence work preceding his directorship of the CIA; answers to why the elder Bush cannot remember where he was the day John F. Kennedy was shot;  new information on George W. Bush’s missing military service; and the back story to the American relationship to Saudi Arabia and oil. Watch Now!

Kwiatkowski Praises Family of Secrets

Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, former NSA and Pentagon official and arch-critic of the Iraq invasion, has strongly recommended Family of Secrets. She recently discussed the book and offered her own thoughts on the Bushes in a column for LewRockwell.com:

I recently read Russ Baker’s Family of Secrets, because Lew interviewed Russ Baker and it sounded great. The book delivers, although I suspect there are a lot of Bush family secrets that remain unexposed. I am personally curious about any Bush secret recipes on the back burner back in March 1981. As history, the Wikipedia version of the Reagan assassination attempt reads like a CIA moonlighter’s script for a movie of the week.

Baker’s research led him back to the days of the JFK assassination, where HW, or “Poppy” Bush was not where he said he was, after all these years. You’ll have to read the book for a real, and real interesting, lesson in modern American democracy.

Russ's Reporting on W.'s Intent to Invade Iraq in Spotlight

This past Tuesday, June 2, Political Affairs Magazine ran a column by Sherwood Ross on Russ’s 2004 blockbuster pre-election scoop about George W. Bush’s intent, expressed back in 1999, to invade Iraq. 

Yesterday, The Raw Story’s John Byrne picked up the story. His detailed piece discusses the 2004 article as well as coverage of Family of Secrets.  Byrne’s entry immediately became a hit on Digg.
