There is also a well-known picture of a young George H.W. Bush standing to the right of the main entrance of the Texas School Book Depository that gives pause because the resemblance is so strong. Like Nixon, Bush has offered different stories of where he was that day. According to a memorandum written by SAC Grasham W. Kitchel, Bush was in Dallas on November 22 and stayed at the Sheraton-Dallas Hotel. A November 29, 1963 J. Edgar Hoover memo refers to George Bush as a CIA man.

Bush had ties to George DeMohrenschildt, a fervent anti-Communist and Texas oil man , was one of Oswald's close friends and possibly a CIA handler. DeMohrenschildt's son-in-law told the Warren Commission that it was likely he was somehow involved in Kennedy's death. . A November 29, 1963 J. Edgar Hoover memo refers to George Bush as a CIA man.

A March 3, 1964 memo from John McCone to James J. Rowley proves that Oswald had been trained by ONI for service in the Soviet Union. Oswald's Marine Corps G-2 files remain classified as do some FBI materials. It is also clear that for some reason the CIA suppressed records about Oswald's visit to Mexico City and that the FBI knew about this and went along. It was known for certain that someone impersonating Oswald called the soviet mission in Mexico City and that the photos of Oswald entering the embassy were not reliable. As late as January, 1964 CIA Counterterrorism Chief James Angleton was using this discredited evidence to attempt to sell the Warren Commission on the idea that Oswald worked for the KGB.

. On March 28, 1878, the House Select Committee on Assassinations learned from former CIA accountant that Lee Harvey Oswald was on the CIA payroll. Hunter Leake, number two man in the CIA station in New Orleans, told historian Michael Kurtz, that the station used Oswald as a courier. He told Kurtz that a trailer would have to be used to transport all the paperwork on Oswald's involvement with the agency . Evidence developed later that Oswald was also an FBI informer.

In August, 1978, Victor Marchetti, a former CIA agent, wrote in the Liberty Lobby's Spotlight that Hunt, Frank Sturgis, and Gerald "Jerry" Patrick Hemming were involved in the plot to kill Kennedy. Hemmings was a soldier of fortune and gun-runner with ties to Santo Trafficante. In 1978 testimony that was sealed until 1993, Hemmings said that he distrusted Sturgis and thought he was tied to military intelligence. He also described a 1962 meeting in the home of Louis Rabel, where the assassination of Castro was present and De Mohrdenschildt was present with piles of hundred dollar bills. Hemmings said he was home in Miami when Kennedy was killed and he insisted that the Lorenz story was false.It was his impression that Sturgis was in Dallas as were some other Miami people. He had met Oswald twice and was surprised by how much Oswald knew about him. At one point, Oswald was trying to infiltrate a team that was to kill Castro. He met Ruby in 1959.

Marchetti said that Marita Lorens provided information on this. Later two other writers repeated the story. His claims about the three men was based on a CIA memo which the House Special Committee on Assassinations chose not to publish. In the ensuing litigation over the article, Mark Lane represented the Liberty Lobby at one time.. In 1995, he convinced a jury that the CIA been involved in the assassination. It developed that Marchetti had consulted Alan Weberman, James Angleton, William Corson, Richard Helms, Stansfield Turner, G. Gordon Liddy, Martina Lorenz, and David Atlee Phillips.

Marita Lorenz , told Gaeton Fonzi "A month or so prior to November 22nd, 1963, I joined Frank Fiorini ( aka. Frank Sturges), Ozzie (Lee Harvey Oswald), others, Cubans in our group and drove in two cars to the home of Orlando Bosch . This... "highly secret meeting" in Bosch's home was to discuss certain streets in Dallas, Texas... There was talk of a "highly powerful rifle" and discussions of "feet," "building," "timings," "contacts," "silence," etc." She added that just before the assassination she drove to Dallas with Bosch, Strugis, Pedro Diaz Lanz , another exile leader, and "two Cuban brothers whose names she does not know". Fonzi argues that in this interview "Marita Lorenz had impressed me as a fairly credible witness". Her account also appeared in the New York Daily News, November 3, 1977.
