Will get back with the specific quote. It is from Russ Baker's "Family Of Secrets" and there isn't an online version. Or at least not one with all the chapters. But i will post the page and quote.
Loosely quoted Baker went to a spokesman from Bush 41 and requested why he had made his call to the FBI on 11/22/63 (the Parrot memo here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bush_Sr_tip_on_JFK_1963.jpg )
Memo is hard to read but transcribed here:
At 1:45 p.m. Mr. GEORGE H. W. BUSH, President of the Zapata Off-Shore Drilling Company, Houston, Texas, residence 5525 Briar, Houston, telephonically furnished the following information to writer by long distance telephone call from Tyler, Texas.BUSH stated that he wanted to be kept confidential but wanted to furnish hearsay that he recalled hearing in recent weeks, the day and source unknown. He stated that one JAMES PARROTT has been talking of killing the President when he comes to Houston.
The spokesman initially claimed that "Bush never made the call" but returned to Baker a week later claiming "Bush does not remember making the call"...
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand WHY Bush made this call: he wanted to have an official alibi witnessed by a federal agent countering the FACT that he was really in Dallas, TX that day. However there are several things very wrong about this phone call:
1. How does Bush reach FBI on their busiest day in history? Their phones were ringing off the hook. Granted his daddy Prescott (originator of CIA and evidence shows he Prescott had a higher security clearance even than then director Allen Dulles) had plenty of political "juice" but this alone doesn't explain HOW he got through on the phone.
2. The individual fingered by Bush was an employee of Bush's failed 1964 US Senate campaign. He, Jim Parrot is (or was he's been "disappeared" since sometime after 1992 or so). In fact Bush knew Parrot was innocent and another one of Bush's employees was visiting Parrot somewhere at the same time.
3. The timing of the Parrot memo to S/A Kitchell is impossible. That is if we are to believe Tyler Kiwanis Club President Aubrey Irby's statement that Bush stepped down from and cancelled his speech at the club upon hearing the news that Kennedy was dead.
Here's what happened: Walter Cronkite announces the death of President Kennedy at 1:30 pm. This is a known matter easy to verify. Yet Special Agent Kitchell's writing indicates that Bush called him at 1:45pm. This is long before the digital age now. So some kitchen worker or staffer must have heard Cronkite's sad report on television and told another worker who told someone else and who eventually tells someone of significant authority to tell Bush who is about to make his speech. This takes time. Perhaps as much as five minutes. Probably more. We're likely pushing 1:40 pm at this point. Its no subtle matter. A prestigious group like Kiwanis doesn't just nonchalantly request a major political figure like Bush receive uncorroborated information. So THEN Bush must find a hotel phone, wait through hours of busy signals and finally gets through to Graham Kitchell???
It doesn't fit. Bush upon hearing of the President's death suddenly decides to call FBI? Doesn't fit. Maybe in 2010 he could have done this but not way back when...
3. This one is DISGUSTING but proves that every time Bush opens his mouth on JFK he steps deeper and deeper into the shit. At Gerald Ford's funeral: WATCH! Bush nearly breaks out in a belly laugh at the framing of Oswald for JFK murder...
Bush's stupid grin proving he is one sick, sick person. Plus why the hell would a guilty party talk about the crime he is so intimately connected to? This ought to be considered a worse choice of words than if Bill Clinton were to have said something dumb at Chelsea's funeral like "I wish Monica could be here today".
We actually think that the real reason Bush made the call to FBI on 11/22/63 was because he was arrested coming out of the Dal Tex Building in Dealey Plaza just across from the Texas School Book Depository. Yes that's right ARRESTED! True it is speculation but in Jim Garrison's interview of Dallas police officer Roger Craig he mentioned one person who well fit the description of Bush as "an independent oil man from Houston". This was Bush's CIA cover. In fact the day BEFORE on 11/1/63 Bush had advertised in the paper that he was making a speech that very day.
Then we have this photo whom I and many others believe is Bush outside Texas School Book Depository:
So if Bush's alibi is bullshit 9which it is) then what does fit? It fits that Bush was frightened upon coming out of Dal Tex building from the angry mob demanding his arrest. Apparently the crowd followed the police car which picked him up down to headquarters. Bush being a big shot even back then was arrested for his own safety and then released. THEN he makes the call to Graham Kitchell but it was still a DUMB move. Because had he never made the call we would have no direct evidence connecting him to the murder IN DALLAS and no false statements.
He's never been particularly good at lying or covering up his feelings.
