At the time of the Bay of Pigs invasion, George Bush was supposedly not involved in government and politics yet. BUT>>>>>

He worked for a company called Zapata oil.

He was Married to Barbara Bush.

He lived in Houston, TX


The invasion was known as "Operation Zapata", and the two us ships that were repainted to look like civilioan ships were renamed the ...you guessed it the "Barbara" and the "Houston"!!!!!!

And Zapata is now owned by Malcolm Glazier a man who also owns the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay is in Florida which is just a few miles from Cuba.

Buccaneers are seafaring men and the Bay of Pigs invaders were men who came by sea.

41 of the 13,000 men who stormed the bay's beaches were named Jorge. George (Jorge?) Bush was the 41st president of the United States.
