G.W. & Jack Abramoff. G.W. & Ken Lay. G. W. seems to enjoy associating with criminals and dirtbags of all types. As a matter of fact he respects, admires and rewards criminals all the time.
John Negroponte, as ambassador to Honduras from 1981-85, covered up human rights abuses by the CIA-trained Battalion 316. He is Bush’s choice for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. and, as Extra! went to press, was expected to clear Senate confirmation hearings.
Elliott Abrams, an assistant secretary of state under Reagan, pleaded guilty in 1991 to two counts of withholding evidence from Congress (i.e., lying) over his role in the Iran-Contra affair. Bush I pardoned him; Bush II has appointed him to the National SecurityCouncil as director of its office for democracy, human rights and international operations. The post requires no Senate approval.
Otto Reich’s nomination as assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, the top post for Latin America, was predicted to draw the most congressional fire. Reich was head of the now-defunct Office for Public Diplomacy (OPD), which the House Committee on Foreign Affairs censured for “prohibited, covert propaganda activities” (Washington Post, 10/11/87).

In case you hadn’t heard about Colin Powell’s participation in the cover-up of the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, which clinched his status as an up-and-coming good ol’ boy with a bulletâ€¦ http://www.blackcommentator.com/30/30_e_mail_pr.html
Other characters from Iran-Contra given jobs by Bush:
Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage. Questions linger over the former Defense Department official’s 1986 contacts with Israel on the Iran arms sales.
Budget Director Mitch Daniels. As Reagan’s political director in 1986 and 1987, Daniels helped oversee a White House damage-control effort.
When will people realize that the entire Bush administration is comprised of criminals, associates of criminals and people who have covered up for criminals? The Bush administration is actually an experienced expert criminal enterprise. Who are we kidding when we become concerned about G.W.â€™s dealings with Jack Abramoff? That is small potatoes my friend. We have a smorgasbord of big enchiladas that are being ignored; so why focus on a side dish? By the way, can you say September 11th? Think about it!
