It's kind of hard to explain the difference when you consider that there's not really much factual information openly available about the Illuminati. Some say that The Illuminati was established in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, who was a former Freemason. Then there are others who say that Weishaupt didn't create The Illuminati, that they were around since Egyptian times and that Weishaupt was just a Grand Master, along with Pythagorus, King Solomon, and other historical figures. Freemasonry has been said to be an "offspring" of the Illuminati, some would say it's the other way around.
To answer your question about President Bush...he was a member of Skull & Bones, a secret society from Yale University. This group is really no secret. Heck, both G.W. Bush and John Kerry both publicly admitted membership to Skull & Bones. A lot of politicians are members of Skull & Bones. It's been said that the CIA was started by Skull & Bones.
