Moreover, it is not accurate.
Michael Tozer
As for this book, there is a lot of evidence that GHW Bush was high ranking Texas CIA in 1963 and may very well have been involved in the JFK assassination.

When you read "The Immaculate Deception" subtitled "The Bush Crime Family Exposed", you will have to keep reminding yourself that you are NOT reading about George W. Bush, our current President. But, the information in this book about George H.W. Bush and his father Prescott Bush will make you look at today's "war on terrorism" and relationship with Iraq in an entirely different light, despite the fact that this book was written in the late 1980s--seemingly long before today's post 9/11 conflict(s).
You remember George Bush (Sr.) of "Read my lips! No new taxes!" fame. He was the Head of the CIA before he was President of the United States and a member of the Skull & Bones Club at Yale before that. He was also the Director of the U.S. "War on Terrorism" and "War on Drugs" at the same time, the only person to ever hold both jobs simultaneously.
This book describes senior George Bush's career and aspirations through the U.S. efforts in 1982-83 to BUILD UP IRAQ by supplying Saddam Hussein with weapons including chemicals needed to manufacture chemical weapons of mass destruction and how Hussein's power has been kept in place by U.S. policies "in order to be a perceived threat to Israel" (p. 92). It also describes George senior's role in the Bay of Pigs, the John F. Kennedy assassination, the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, the Martin Luther King assassination, the Iran hostages trade for weapons "deal", and the near assassination of Ronald Reagan.
In short, if you want to understand today's "War on Terrorism" and dealings with Iraq, Israel, the PLO, and Afghanistan, simply "follow the money". You'll find, as this book outlines, that most of it leads to the Bush family, in one form or another.

Format: Paperback
"Give this job to Jr." says Bush the elder invoking images of this waspish, thin-lipped, internationalist operating worldwide yet maintaining a public image of down-homeiness.
Russell Bowen more than rips the lid off the public image carefully cultivated by Bush, Inc. exposing the dark side of not just American politics but its international tentacles stretching into every country where American business/government conducts its business with a plethora of American paid for and sponsored dictators.
Gore Vidal has written that the American Republic ended in July 1947 with the signing, and creation, of the national security state vis-avis the founding of the CIA. For George Herbert Walker Bush, the national security state always existed.
Bowen traces the history of the Bush crime family interweaving the story of the family with the politics of the nation and the high flying deals which enriched the family. Bowen documents not just the Machiavellian work of Bush the elder, but the sins of the sons, Neil, Jeb and Dubya. Admitting to his own work under orders from Bush the elder, he asks the following questions:
Where was George?
1. When, during World War II, his shipmates were drowning after the bomber plane Bush was piloting was shot down?
2. When the Bay of Pigs was planned?
3. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated?
4. When presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated?
5. When Martin Luther King was assassinated?
6. When a "deal" was made to hold the Iran hostages until the inauguration of Reagan?
7. When Ronald Reagan was nearly assassinated in Washington by a known Bush family associate?
8. When the truth about this association with Iraq should have been made clear to the American people?

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is a TON of information packed into these 200 pages. Event after event, lie after lie, flip flop after flip flop, covert actions after covert action, and lie after lie, this book weighs in on Bush's historical record.
Is Bush to blame for the escalation of the drug trade? Read this book for some info on the subject. Read how he hid deals and ownerships of companies that he knew violated Mexican laws. How he supported Saddam Hussien, how he partnered with Hussein and Saudi Arabia to keep oil prices high so his family could make more money. How he was involved with the CIA (although he denied it) back in the late 50s and early 60s. What does he know about the Kennedy assassination? He gave a briefy the day after to government officials. He denied being in the Iran-contra loop but he set up the connections for it. He continued to pay Noriega over $100,000 a year while Noriega was stealing U.S. intelligence and running drugs to the United States with CIA cover.
What was his role in the delaying of the Iran Hostages release? A national black mark that folks have not heard enough of. He gave Hussein the go-ahead to invade Kuwait and then attacked him. How he had to be ordered by the Supreme Court to stop lobbying the IRS on behalf of drug companies when he was VP.
The list goes on and on and on and one. Read this book and have your eyes opened. It will entice you to read more on the sad subject of the life or priveledge and abuse of power. And everyone thought Clinton was the worst, when the facts come out on Bush it would be hard to decide who was the worst.

Format: Paperback
Russell Bowen's account of the Bush family serves as a roadmap illustrating how contacts coupled with opportunism produced a pattern of corruption which continues as George II rules in a position achieved through vote theft and a hypocritical one vote Supreme Court majority which cut against the grain of state rights cession these justices generally embrace.
Bowen was one of the first authors, along with historian John Loftus, to reveal how the Bush economic empire received a major boost in the pre-World War Two period with loans from banker Prescott Bush, grandfather of the current officeholder, to Adolf Hitler. This valuable money enabled the Nazi dictator to gain more pig iron and develop his weapons potential.
A former intelligence operative himself, the knowledgeable Bowen traces Bush I's links as CIA Director to drug activity, culminating with his bombing of Panama and the civilian casualties that resulted. Bowen exposes the fraudulent claims of Bush to "get Noriega" after the CIA Director had used the Panamanian dictator as a valuable intelligence source.
The claim that George I was a self-made man in the West Texas oil business is also exposed as a sham by Bowen. The public relations myth perpetrated by Bush cronies was that the Ivy Leaguer drove into West Texas in a dusty old jalopy and, through proper application, made a fortune. In reality he flew into West Texas in his father's private jet and used contacts to achieve a fortune. He emerged as a man of privilege from the beginning who used patrimonious affirmative action to gain fame and fortune. He emerges, as humorist Jim Hightower quipped, as "a man who was born on third base and believed he had hit a triple."
Bowen displays prescience in dealing with the Bush sons in one perceptive chapter.
