Of course, the right is quick to point out that President Bush’s friendship with Ken Lay is hardly a crime.
If you get to see the documentary, The Corporation, however, you will appreciate how, in the overlap of business and government interests, there is a thin line between association and collusion. In the case of Bush and Lay, there is enough smoke to suggest a more combustible situation here. Right around the time Lay was exerting influence in setting the Cheney/Bush energy policy, and the administration was running interference for Enron (by way of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commision) during California’s manufactured “energy crisis.”
To highlight the sympathies between George and Ken,The Smoking Gun has published The Bush-Lay letters.
