They hired Bush in a desperate bid to save themselves on a plan code-named "Project Verde." Essentially, Bush was to go to Mexico and convince (trick) a telecom mogul into making a large investment. It failed spectacularly. "Project Verde was unsuccessful," Bush wrote back. This is one of many instances where his quest for money overtook his judgment.  Which brings me to #2...
