Don't forget, HW Bush had already been CIA chief, under Pres Ford. Reagan also named HW Bush to head up his war on drugs.
It was HW Bush who ran Panamanian drug lord Manuel Noriega -- and HW Bush who oversaw Oliver North and the whole Contra War effort -- which later blew up in Reagan's face.
Bush was Mr teflon -- always off the radar screen -- even as he led CIA management of the drug trade while VP. CIA used drug money to fund covert ops.
