    Bush History:Bush Admin Working Hard,Going All Out to Promote the
    Interests of Enron-1/16

    A letter draws attention to the fact that the Bush admin. has been
    working hard, going all out, pulling all the stops to promote the
    interests of the likes of Enron (2002). This was, of course, prior to
    all the criminal charges against the now defunct company, but
    after ‘Kenny Boy’ and other Enron interests had oh-so-generously lined
    the Bush campaign’s pockets. Also, a bloody day in Iraq (2007).
