How Bill Clinton Let Bush I Off Hook
Robert Parry’s Secrecy & Privilege is primarily a book showing how the Bush family rose to the pinnacle of power, often by playing political dirty tricks outside the view of the American public.
But a sub-theme of Parry’s book is how Bill Clinton and other accommodating Democrats failed to hold George H.W. Bush accountable for his behind-the-scenes abuses of power and thus opened the door to the Bush restoration in 2000.
This history is important again today as Sen. Hillary Clinton emerges as the Democratic front-runner – and the question of George W. Bush’s accountability will be an issue facing whoever is the next President.
