Gonzales-Bush: Sons of Iran-Contra and Watergate

A stained Republican executive branch genealogy links today's Bush-Gonzales press duet to the performance of Oliver North before Congress during the Iran-Contra standard, and even to the office of John Dean, Nixon's White House counsel during Watergate. Fred Fielding, current White House Counsel, was deputy to John Dean during the Watergate scandal and Counsel to the President to President Ronald Reagan until 1986. Iran-Contra broke in November 1987, during the Vice Presidency of George H. W. Bush. More to come. Bleeding dog toe takes priority.
