Mike Carlton uncovers the Giant Texan Conspiracy that delayed the return of Private Jake Kovko’s body:
The blunder is probably the fault of the American contractor hired to transport the casket from Kuwait to Australia, a firm named Kenyon International.
Here the plot thickens. Kenyon’s parent company, Service Corporation International (SCI), boasts that it is “the dominant leader in the North American death care industry”. It is based in Houston, Texas. You will not be surprised, therefore, to hear that SCI’s billionaire founder, one Robert Waltrip, is an old buddy of the Bush family and a big-money donor to the two Georges.
Back in 1999, when George jnr was beginning his run for the White House, SCI was embroiled in a grisly scandal known as Funeralgate. A whistleblower accused the company of “recycling” graves. Old corpses had been removed and replaced by new ones. At two Jewish cemeteries in Florida, bodies were exhumed and dumped in the woods to be eaten by wild hogs.
I am not making this up. The scandal ran through the Texas courts, reaching all the way to, yep, Governor George W. Bush. There were uncomfortable questions about the donations he had accepted from SCI.
Happily, the whistleblower was paid off and everything smoothed over in time for Dubya to win the Republican presidential nomination. SCI later paid compensation of $US100 million to its victims’ relatives.
And who fixed this? Why, none other than Harry Whittington, the Texas lawyer shot by Deadeye Dick Cheney on that famous hunting trip in February.
Don’t stop there, Mike. Two more paragraphs and you’ll have proof that the Bush twins detonated the World Trade Center.
