Marvin Bush Employee's mysterious death - connections to 9/11?
A bizarre story, which appeared only in Washington Post so far.
Wayne Madsen thinks, there might be more behind it.
Did Bertha Champagne know more about Stratasec?

By Wayne Madsen
WASHINGTON, At around 9 PM on September 29, Fairfax County,
Virginia police responded to a 911 call describing an accident.
However, they soon discovered they were not dealing with a routine
emergency but the mysterious death of an employee of the 47-year
old brother of President George W. Bush, venture capitalist Marvin
Sixty-two year old Bertha Champagne, described as a long time "baby
sitter" for Marvin and Margaret Bush's two children, son Walker,
13, and daughter Marshall, 17, was found crushed to death by her
own vehicle in a driveway in front of the Bush family home in the
Alexandria section of Fairfax County. Champagne reportedly lived at
the Bush family home.

Champagne had left the residence to retrieve something from her
car, which police say had somehow been left in gear. According to
the police report, the car rolled forward and pinned the woman
between it and a small building next to the driveway (possibly a
checkpoint built by the Secret Service when Marvin's father, George
H. W. Bush, was president).
The car crossed Edgehill Drive, a small street in front of the Bush
compound. The vehicle then crossed a busy two-lane street, Fort
Hunt Road, finally coming to rest in a wooded area across the
street that adjoins the prestigious Belle Haven Country Club. No
explanations have been offered as to why the vehicle did not move
until Champagne was in a position to be crushed.
Champagne was pronounced dead on arrival at Inova Mount Vernon
Hospital. Courtney Young, a spokesperson for the Fairfax County
police was surprised when asked about the circumstances surrounding
Champagne's death. She indicated the media was primarily focused on
another Fairfax County story, the kidnapping and holdup of the wife
of New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg on October 7. More mystifying
is the fact that the Washington Post waited almost an entire week
to publish the story about the baby sitter's death.
The incident occurred on September 29, but the Post did not report
it until October 5 and buried it on page 3 of the Metro section.
Nevertheless, the Washington Post was the only media outlet to
cover the story at all. Young said police still did not know the
exact cause of Champagne's death.
Young said the police had posted the incident on its web site in a
press release, although the report makes no mention of Marvin Bush.
It reads: A 62-year-old Alexandria area woman died after being
pinned between a rolling car and a building. The crash happened on
Monday, around 9 pm, near the intersection of Fort Hunt Road and
Edgehill Drive. Bertha Champagne had gone outside to get something
from a car in a driveway.
The car, which was left in gear, began to roll forward. Champagne
was pinned between the car and a small building next to the
driveway. The car continued to roll down the driveway, crossed Fort
Hunt Road, and came to rest in a wooded area. Champagne was taken
to Inova Mount Vernon Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The press release is dated September 30 at 1330 (1:30 PM), some
sixteen and a half hours after the incident occurred. The police
were well aware of Marvin Bush's controversial role in serving on
corporate boards for companies associated with the 911 terrorist
attacks, however, they emphasized that Champagne's death was merely
a quirky accident and no foul play was involved.
...According to two articles in the Progressive Populist written by
Margie Burns, from 1993 to 2000, Bush served on the board of
Securacom (since renamed Stratesec). The chairman of the board of
Stratesec is Wirt D. Walker III, a cousin of Marvin and George W.
Bush. Securacom had contracts to provide security for Dulles
International Airport (the airport from which American Airlines
Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon, originated) and the
World Trade Center in New York.
Securacom's backers include a number of Kuwaitis through a company
called KuwAm Corp (Kuwaiti-American Corp.). Stratesec also has
Walker also serves as a managing director of KuwAm, which maintains
offices within the Watergate complex along with Riggs Bank, on
whose board Bush's uncle,
Jonathan Bush, sits. Saudi Princess Haifa al Faisal, the wife
of Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Bandar, used a Riggs account
to funnel money to Omar al
Bayoumi and Osama

For those who do not accept the Official Story on the collapse of

their biggest problem: if the Towers were brought down with
explosives how could anyone get them in. Step in Marvin Bush whose

SECRECY SURROUNDS A BUSH BROTHER'S ROLE IN 9/11
by Margie Burns
Washington, D.C. WASHINGTON, Jan 19, 2003 -- A company that
provided security at New York City's World Trade Center, Dulles
International Airport in Washington, D.C., and to United Airlines
between 1995 and 2001, was backed by a private Kuwaiti-American
investment firm with ties to a brother of President Bush and the
Bush family, according to records obtained by the American
Two planes hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001 were United Airlines planes,
and another took off from Dulles International Airport; two, of
course, slammed into the World Trade Center. But the Bush
Administration has never disclosed the ties of a presidential
brother and the Bush family with the firm that intersected the
weapons and targets on a day of national tragedy.
Marvin P. Bush, a younger brother of George W. Bush, was a
principal in the company from 1993 to 2000, when most of the work
on the big projects was done. But White House responses to 9/11
have not publicly disclosed the company's part in providing
security to any of the named facilities, and many of the public
records revealing the relationships are not public.
Nonetheless, public records reveal that the firm, formerly named
Securacom, listed Bush on its board of directors and as a
significant shareholder. The firm, now named Stratesec, Inc., is
located in Sterling, Va., a suburb of Washington, D.C., and
emphasizes federal clients. Bush is no longer on the board.
Marvin Bush has not responded to repeated telephoned and emailed
requests for comment on this story.
The American Stock Exchange delisted Stratesec's stock in October
2002. Securacom also had a contract to provide security at Los
Alamos National Laboratories, notorious for its security breaches
and physical and intellectual property thefts.
According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an
ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center "up
to the day the buildings fell down." Yet instead of being
investigated, the company and companies involved with it have
benefited from legislation pushed by the Bush White House and
rubber-stamped by Congressional Republicans.
Stratesec, its backer KuwAm, and
their corporate officers stand to benefit from limitations on
liability and national-security protections from investigation
provided in bills since 9/11.

Dulles International Airport and United Airlines between 1995 and

Enron Founder and Chairman Kenneth Lay worked in the Pentagon for
the Nixon administration during the Vietnam War.
Lay is a close friend of George Bush, Sr. In fact, his Houston home
in River Oaks is near the Tanglewood residence of the former
President and CIA Director.
Although there have been no published reports of Bush Sr. doing
favors for Lay, three of the "Bush Boys" have used their father's
name to get contracts for Enron.
According to an article by Seymour Hersh in the New Yorker, Neil
and Marvin Bush tried to influence government officials for an
Enron bid to rebuild Shuaiba North power plant in Kuwait.
Ironically this power plant was destroyed in George Bush's Persian
Enron abandoned the bid in 2000.
In 1988, then Texas governor George Bush Jr., telephoned
Rodolfo Terragno, Argentina's Public Works Minister, to ask him to
award Enron a contract to build a pipeline from Chile to
"He assumed that the fact he was the son of the president
would exert influence. I felt pressured. It was not proper for him
to make that kind of call," Terragno told The Nation.
Finally, when Carlos Menem, another Bush Sr. crony, became
president of Argentina, Enron won the bid.
Neil Bush, director of the failed Denver-based Silverado Savings
and Loan, created a subsidiary of his oil company to conduct
business in Argentina in 1987. Argentina finally got so fed up with
the Bush Clan (->), they formally had a parliamentary
investigation regarding their so-called "business dealings. Source:
