The Bush Family Saga
National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty
05/11/03: (Information Clearing House)This takes us back to the 1980s although as the article below informs, like a bad meal, the sins of the past keep coming back, in this case it’s Otto Reich who was part of the original Contra force funded and supported by the Reagan/Bush government with its links to drugs for guns and connections to the CIA and the Iran-Contra affair. I have also included links to the official CIA version of events.
"Bush nominee linked to Latin American terrorism" By Bill Vann 24 November 2001
"As the Bush administration exhorts governments throughout the world to line up behind its "war on terrorism," it is pressuring the US Senate to push through confirmation of a nominee to a key foreign policy position whose own links to terror and an illegal CIA propaganda operation have raised concerns even among the usually docile Democratic leadership.
The name Otto Reich topped the list of 18 nominees submitted last month by Secretary of State Colin Powell. He is one of a group of veterans of the illegal covert wars fought by Washington in Central America under the Reagan administration in the 1980s who are now reassuming key posts in the US foreign policy establishment."

"The CIA Version"
And just so you can’t accuse me of not presenting the ‘other’ side, here are the CIA files on the Contra war. Frankly, aside from presenting a lengthy chronology, most of these documents consist of questions without any corresponding answers, and where answers are forthcoming, they let the CIA off the hook, but decide for yourself.
