Al-Qaeda-Bilderberg Connection?

FBI Linking Al-Qaeda Funds, Insider Trading Amongst Global Finance Elites and a Soured Texas Asset Buyout as Pakistani Prime Minister Under Investigation

Saturday June 2, 2007

As we reported yesterday, an FBI investigation led to charges for two high level Pakistani financiers on multiple counts of conspiracy and fraud. The FBI has announced it is now investigating further links to Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, as well as Salman Shah, the Prime Minister's financial advisor, Ali Raza, the president of the National Bank of Pakistan and a significant list of other Pakistani financial heads.

The Times of India reported that FBI investigators believe the criminal operation may also be tied to allegations of money-laundering operations for Al Qaeda.

The alleged insider trading took place on knowledge of the TxU buyout, a largest-ever $45 billion leverage deal brokered by Kohlberg, Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR) and Goldman Sachs, two key firms inside the Bilderberg group, who dominate the investment banking world, and are shown to be very closely linked.

Credit Suisse First Boston, who served as advisors on the TxU buyout and are also represented annually at Bilderberg, are named in the FBI insider trading case that has so far charged Hafiz Naseem, a Credit Suisse FB investment banker, with criminal counts of conspiracy and fraud.

Is there a link between elite Pakistani bankers who brokered the TxU leveraged buyout with Bilderberg firms KKR, Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse and the alleged Pakistani role in a laundering scheme for Al-Qaeda?

Civil charges have been filed against Ajaz Rahim, the head of investment banking at Faysal Bank in Pakistan, on conspiracy and 25 counts of securities fraud.

The high levels of investigation are interesting-- given the close relationship with Western banking, as well as the pivotal role Pakistan plays in the intelligence community and the so-called War on Terror. Pakistan is well known for harboring Al Qaeda, though the government does not officially support the terrorist group.

It was from Pakistan that former ISI chief General Mahmud Ahmad wired $100,000 to supposed lead-hijacker Mohammad Atta, a known CIA-asset, to fund the 9/11 attacks. Of course, the ISI is largely an extension of the CIA and other western intelligence agencies, and works as base of operations for intelligence in the Middle East.


Fmr. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski with Osama bin Laden, circa 1979.

Just north of Pakistan, Zbigniew Brzezinski funded, armed and created the Taliban-- headed by bin Laden-- to offset expected aggression by Soviet forces into Afghanistan in 1979 while Brzezinski was National Security Adviser to President Carter-- proving directly the U.S. link to bin Laden.

"I told the President, about six months before the Soviets entered Afghanistan, that in my judgment I thought they would be going into Afghanistan. And I decided then, and I recommended to the President, that we shouldn't be passive...We weren't passive," Brzezinski told CNN during a 1997 interview.

Brzezinski, of course, helped David Rockefeller found the Trilateral Commission, and is also involved in the Council on Foreign Relations, both of which bleed over into the Bilderberg group, all of which serve an agenda working towards world government.

When Osama bin Laden and his Taliban became a red herring in the War on Terror, they simply moved south to Pakistan, leaving American forces to seize control of Afghanistan (as well as its land, oil, Caspian trade route, and opium crop) while fighting a non-existent enemy. Despite the fact that the phony War on Terror is supposedly fought globally, neither American, Pakistani or U.N. troops have gone after the Taliban forces residing in Pakistan. The reason for this is not Pakistan's duplicity, but that the terrorist group was simply a pretense to control Afghanistan, as its governing forces were perhaps not as accessible as Rick Perry has been in selling out Texas.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz has also been accessible to the globalists-- he is basically a controlled asset, after all. While he is currently under investigation in the related cases of insider trading over Texas asset deals and Al Qaeda money laundering operations, he was Citigroup's Chairman-- a New York-based investment group operating in the top echelon of the financial world. Aziz spent approximately 30 years with the company.

Citigroup, obviously well established in the banking web, has several Bilderberg ties, including notorious former chair Walter Bigelow Wriston (who transformed Citigroup into one of the biggest conglomerates in the world and also wrote a book called The Twilight of Sovereignty [1992]). Former Citigroup Chairman and CEO John S. Reed was a Bilderberg member as well and also Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. A number of other top Citigroup executives are members of the Council on Foreign Relations, including CEO Charles Prince, former president & CEO Richard A. Freytag and Vice Chairman William R. Rhodes.

Citigroup grew out of the National City Bank of New York, which was built up by William Rockefeller, brother of John D. Rockefeller. William's grandson James Stillman Rockefeller also headed the bank and worked closely with Walter B. Wriston.

Prime Minister Aziz also publicized his relationship with the Carlyle Group and plans for Pakistani investment while attending the 2007 Davos meeting. According to this report:

On the second day of Davos, Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz told the group that the United States' very own Carlyle Group, which "manages $46.9 billion worldwide," is planning to invest several billion dollars in the Middle East.

Aziz's attachments to Western banking go too deep for him to have any real separation from it; on the contrary, it surely those ties launched him into to the top of the Pakistani government.

Dr. Salmon Shah with Paul Wolfowitz in 2005

The Prime Minister's financial advisor, Salman Shah, who is also under investigation, serves as the Governor of the World Bank for Pakistan, which he spoke to in 2004, 2005, 2006 (PDF links). He was educated in the United States and taught for many years at a number of Western institutions. He has also spoken at Credit Suisse First Boston conferences, the Bilderberg firm which advised the TxU merger. Haseem, who has been criminally charged in the case, worked for Credit Suisse FB.

Former Pakistani Prime Minister, Moin Qureshi, was Vice President at the World Bank prior to becoming PM and obtained permanent residence in the United States after his term where he established the Emerging Markets Company.

Investigations probing top positions in Pakistani finance and government have implications for the world finance community at large, particularly as the investigations relate to trading on the TxU buyout-- which was nothing more than the leveraging of Texas assets by Bilderberg brokers, particularly Henry R. Kravis, founding partner of KKR who led the TxU deal. Kravis also holds the previous record for largest buyout-- the leveraging of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company at approximately $26 billion in 1988-- a price that came after a bidding war, which was dramatized in the film Barbarians at the Gate.

Texas has been realigned to shift control to globalist development throughout the region, particularly in regards to new infrastructure such as the Trans-Texas Corridor and energy conglomerates, namely TxU, all of which Texas Governor Rick Perry has personally facilitated, nursed, defended and championed.

In this view, it is fitting that Perry was invited to the 2007 Bilderberg meeting, which Presidential candidate Ron Paul noted was "sure a sign that he's very much involved in the international conspiracy."

Perry sits in a pivotal access point for political manipulation in a state undergoing massive manipulation. Though the Texas governorship is theoretically weak as set up by the Texas constitution, Perry has been all-too-ready to mandate accommodation for globalist investment and to veto any attempts to block such giveaways and defend traditional nation-state based sovereignty. Furthermore, he has proved quite willing to hand over access and assets to global finance-- without prodding by international institutions like the IMF to leverage control, as has been done throughout the third world.

At this point, it is not clear if investigations of inside trading will implicate any of the players in Texas or the Western banking network, but the TxU deal certainly links them with top Pakistani officials currently under investigation, and charges for Nafiz Haseem and Ajaz Rahim.

Well, we have our first conclusions of Bilderberg 2007, Robert Zoellick and the World Bank nomination.

The US delegation is standing unanimously behind Robert Zoellick´s candidacy as the next President of the World Bank. Zoellick is a 53 year old Wall Street executive, former administration official and a free-market fundamentalist. During the meeting he pledged “to work to restore confidence in the bank.”

“We need to put our differences aside and focus on the future together. I believe that the World Bank's best days are still to come,” Zoellick said.

The chances of Zoellick not being approved for the chair of World Bank Presidency are slim to none. The final decision is to be made by the end of June by the bank's 24-member board of directors.

The United States and Europe have a tacit agreement between them that the bank's president should always be a US national while its sister institution, the International Monetary Fund, is headed by a European.

Nevertheless, according to our sources at the conference, European Bilderbergers are not at all pleased with continuing the status quo, in which the US nominates a single candidate after informal consultations with bank members.

The nomination also appears to short-circuit burgeoning calls for reform of this selection process at the bank, one of the cornerstones of the global financial architecture as designed by the victors of World War II.

One Belgian Bilderberger proposed “a merit-based selection process, without regard to nationality,” something which will obviously be discarded by the inept Bush administration. What is rather quite remarkable is that on several occasions European Bilderbergers have openly rejected the current model saying “the nomination reeks of double standards,” especially because both the US and the World Bank preach accountability and transparency to developing countries, the main clients of the bank.

But with IMF under the control of a Spaniard, Rodrigo Rato, European central bank, a Frenchman, Jean Claude Trichet, it was a difficult undertaking to imagine that the USA would give up control of the World Bank. Only the US Federal Reserve would remain in the hands of the Americans.

“Replacing one Bush appointee with another will not resolve the fundamental governance problems of the World Bank,” said one Scandinavian. “Member governments should reject a back-door deal that leaves the bank's governance structure intact, and should press for an open, merit-based selection process,” he said.

Zoellick's name also raised eyebrows among development groups for his close ties to the US establishment and corporate interests.

One of the attendees, I have not had the confirmation as to who this individual is, asked Zoellick how he was planning to patch up relationships with third and forth world nations when he is best remembered during his tenure as the USTR, for arm-twisting poor nations' governments to adhere to US-imposed intellectual-property laws that make medicines, for example, unaffordable to the developing world?

He has been a close friend to the brand-name pharmaceutical industry, and the bilateral trade agreements he has negotiated effectively block access to generic medication for millions of people.

However, what has really riled up both the US and European delegates is the fact that World Bank´s dirty linen is being washed in public, thanks in great part to Paul Wolfowitz´s ineptness which incidentally he has blamed on the press.

What is IMF and the World Bank?

It is widely, but mistakenly, believed that the purpose of the World Bank [controlled by the U.S. Federal Reserve] and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) [of which the U.S. is the principal donor and the only nation with the veto power] is to “encourage development and relieve poverty in the third world, but in practice these organizations have added to the impoverishment and destitution of millions” through the loans scheme called "Structural Adjustment Programmes" (SAPs) that have succeeded in adding to the country´s burden of debt and stagnation.
The obvious result of the SAPs from the World Bank and the IMF is that the money lent to the destitute nations were used to make immediate interest payments to western banking institutions, something that both Jim Tucker and I have been saying for years. Furthermore, by ordering Third World economies to focus on production for export purposes, the World Bank and the IMF channelled $178 billion of the Third World financial resources between 1984 and 1990 into servicing dollar-denominated foreign debt.

These programs are being implemented in over 70 Third World and Eastern European countries from Nigeria to Jamaica, from Hungury to Ethiopia, Lesotho, Kenia, Ghana, Uganda subjected to 566 IMF and World Bank stabilization and SAPs with devastating results. SAPs involve the liberalization of African economies which means that foreign companies are encouraged to take over designated sectors of the economy.

The World Bank's own study titled, "Adjustment Lending: An Evaluation of Ten Years of Experience" (1988) has demonstrated that the SAPs undertaken by 15 Sub-Saharan African countries failed utterly in every measurable criteria.

Despite global adjustment, “thirty-six of Africa's 47 countries, according to the bank´s secret study, have been subjected to structural adjustment by the Fund and Bank, yet the total external debt of the continent is now 110 percent of its gross national product.”

Additionally, African states, unable to compete with Western multinationals, have been forced to withdraw from the health sector as part of free market economy. This has put African children at the mercy of unscrupulous international organizations and pharmaceutical transnational corporations, who are thus at liberty to use them as guinea pigs for testing various drugs and vaccines. As a case in point, in January 2001, the U.S.-based pharmaceutical TNC Pfizer used an experimental drug on 50,000 children suffering from meningitis in Kano, Nigeria without official authorization. As a result of the epidemic, 15,000 people died while many others became deaf and blind.

Just a couple of other items on the agenda we are working on to expose as well: European relations with Russia not only in Europe but also in Central Asia. With Moscow making a deal with Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan over the transport of gas to Europe, the US geo-strategic goal of driving a wedge between the Central Asian countries and Russia lies in shambles. While the US says this is "not good for Europe", the Europeans are divided. Iran, overnight has become America’s last hope in the energy war.

Iran war, after two years of huffing and puffing by the Bush government is definitely off the table. Furthermore, with France, Russia, Japan and China investing heavily in Iran, the world has drawn a line in the sand and the U.S. will be told at the conference not to cross it. There is blood in the water, and blood in the water usually leads to a good fight.
That notwithstanding, the United States needs to control the region, not only for its oil reserves but, most importantly to help it sustain world economic hegemony. Under this strategic design, regional states will be turned to weak domains of sectarian sheikhs with little or no sovereignty and, by implications, a pathetic agenda of their economic development. Regional chaos favours the spread of Islamic fundamentalism, which in turn reinforces the process of political and social disintegration supported by the Bilderbergers.

And finally, with Blair leaving, the UK will be told yet again, that they must, at all cost, do what is necessary to integrate the country into the European Community, even against the expressed wishes of Britain´s citizens.

Ron Paul Adds Voice To Critics Who Say Perry's Bilderberg Visit Criminal Act

Ron Paul: Perry's Bilderberg Attendance Proof Governor Part Of "International Conspiracy"
Agrees that Perry should be investigated for potentially violating the Logan Act

Texas Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has added his voice to those who believe Texas Governor Rick Perry should be investigated for a criminal violation of the Logan Act after he jetted off to meet with foreign elites yesterday at the Bilderberg Group conference in Istanbul.

Perry's trip to Turkey is a clear violation of the Logan Act which states that "Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

Since Perry has not received authorization from Congress, the U.S. government or the American people to meet with Bilderberg luminaries, where policy that impacts the world is secretly discussed in a wholly undemocratic fashion, his visit represents a criminal act.

Speaking on the Alex Jones Show yesterday, Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul agreed that Perry should be investigated for a potential violation of the Logan Act.

"This information about him going over there and violating the Logan Act and getting involved - I'm just impressed that that's in the ordinary media - I think that's encouraging too," said the Congressman.

Paul said that Perry's attendance was "A sign that he's involved in the international conspiracy."

Perry's press secretary declined to give a statement when we called and denied any knowledge of the Logan Act, yet seemed to be fully aware of it in claiming Bilderberg was a private meeting. Since the Logan Act also bars private citizens from negotiating with foreign officials, Perry is still violating the law.


Exclusive: Bilderbergers War Over World Bank

Alex Jones was joined on air today by several reporters, including veteran Jim Tucker, reporting exclusively from the Bilderberg conference in Istanbul, Turkey where the shadowy and private meeting of elites from throughout the Western world is now underway.

Reporters detail Elite Confab

 
 
Alex Jones was joined on air today by several reporters, including veteran Jim Tucker, reporting exclusively from the Bilderberg conference in Istanbul, Turkey where the shadowy and private meeting of elites from throughout the Western world is now underway.

Yesterday Tucker exclusively revealed that the meeting is to be held at the Ritz Carlton in Istanbul after the group tried to throw the local media off the scent and lie in claiming the elite confab was to take place 40 miles away in the city of Silivri.

It seems that Bilderberg has also been using the Turkish media, in particular the Turkish Daily News as a propaganda mouthpiece, having it pen an article today entitled 'Why are we scared of Bilderberg?'

Tucker became convinced the Carlton was the real site when security surrounding the area became intense yesterday.

Tucker described a heavy police presence surrounding the Ritz Carlton and confirmed that he had been followed by secret police and was under close surveillance. The police have put up large metal barriers around the hotel making sure no one gets close, as can be seen in the picture above.

According to Romanian journalist Paul Dorneanu, who is covering the meeting and also briefly joined Alex Jones on air today there are upwards of 100 protesters in the vicinity of the Ritz Carlton.

Early reports suggest that activities are already underway with long time Bilderberger Henry Kissinger having already called for a new international cooperation in order to end the civil war in Iraq.

Kissinger revealed why Istanbul has been chosen this year stating “Turkey is in a position to make an important contribution for shaping what I mentioned above,” saying that Turkey's being part of the European system has an extremely strategic importance.

Jim Tucker suggested that Bilderberg is keen to portray Turkey as desperate to be allowed entry the to EU despite the fact that many Turks are strongly opposed to it because they see it as a surrendering of sovereignty.

Also joining Jones on air was Daniel Estulin who has been covering the Bilderberg group for 15 years.

Estulin pointed to the fact that a Bilderberg attendee, Robert Zoellick is the US candidate to take over at the World Bank. Estulin revealed that his sources have told him that yesterday Zoellick pledged to Bilderberg that he will restore confidence in the World Bank and that differences need to be put aside in order that the global body can be strengthened.

According to Estulin's sources however, European Bilderbergers are not at all happy with continuing the status Quo of having the US nominated candidate become the world bank President. Estulin says that one Belgian Bilderberger proposed a merit based selection process without regard to nationality, fearing that if the world bank goes with Zoellick it could be accused of double standards because he is best remembered for arm twisting poor nations to adhere to US imposed intellectual property laws that make medicines and drugs unaffordable to the developing world.

This reveals exactly why Zoellick has been nominated to head up the world bank, he has a great track record during his time as a trade representative and NAFTA architect of securing globalist dominance over the third world. Zoellick is, as we revealed here yesterday, a globalist all rounder with strong corporate ties to boot. As it preaches accountability and transparency to developing nations, some elites at the Bilderberg meeting clearly fear Zoellick's appointment would be compromising.

Estulin went on to describe in depth the damage that the world bank and its sister globalist outfit the IMF have done to humanity through their "Structural adjustment programs" which are nothing more than huge loans handed out to third world nations in order to reap the profits from the resulting debt trap.

Returning to the media coverage of Bilderberg, the Dallas Morning News yesterday reported Texas Governor Rick Perry's attendance at this year's Bilderberg meeting which has since been confirmed by the Governor's Press Office as he left Austin for Istanbul and also picked up by the AP.

Perry has been intimately involved in aiding international firms represented by Bilderberg personnel to take control over land, roads and newly privatized utilities in Texas.

Jim Tucker believes that Bilderberg are considering him as a potential future President because he is not a regular attendee. If he is invited back next year this may be an indication that he is in the running for future leadership, according to Tucker.

Appearing on the Alex Jones show yesterday, presidential candidate Ron Paul confirmed that Perry's trip could be in violation of the Logan Act which prevents U.S. citizens from unauthorized negotiations with foreign entities. Paul also added that the trip indicates Perry is in league with the movement to establish a global government.

Paid For Bilderberg Propaganda In Turkish Newspaper

Kissinger calls for cooperation with US, Ritz-Carlton confirmed Bilderberg location

Turkish Daily News | June 1, 2007 
SAFAK TIMUR

While guests at the super-secretive Bilderberg meeting in Istanbul started to settle in the Ritz Carlton Hotel, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who is among the guests, called on the international community to cooperate with the U.S. to end the civil war in Iraq at a conference organized by Turkish banking giant Akbank yesterday.

Delivering a speech at the conference called “Global Developments and Turkey: Taking Lessons from the Past, Understanding the Future,” Kissinger called for the neighbors of Iraq along with the permanent members of the United Nations (UN) Security Council, Egypt, Pakistan and India to create “an international outline for quieting the civil war in Iraq and permit Iraqis to determine their own destiny.”

An immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq would spread the crisis to neighboring countries including India with its large Muslim population, Kissinger claimed. “Turkey is in a position to make an important contribution for shaping what I mentioned above,” he added. Saying that Turkey's being part of the European system has an extremely strategic importance.

Acknowledging that the proliferation of nuclear weapons was ignored in the past, Kissinger said that the urgent issue today was to stop North Korea and Iran developing nuclear weapons, “rather than waiting for the U.S. to make sacrifices.”

Bilderberg confidential:

As Kissinger spoke, preparations for the Bilderberg gathering were going on at the Ritz Carlton, with heightened security in the vicinity. The police put up metal barriers around the hotel making sure no one gets close and a group of policemen were waiting in front of the Besiktas Inönü Stadium close to the hotel.

No one in the area seemed to know what was going on inside the Ritz Carlton.

A waiter from a nearby café, who refused to give his name, said he knew nothing about the meeting. A seasonal worker from Tokat, a central Anatolian city, working in the reconstruction of pavements just across the hotel said, “businessmen were inside.”

“They came yesterday,” said 44-year old Hüsamettin Çiftçi. “I do not think that they will talk politics.”

Drivers disturbed:

A group of taxi drivers were sitting at the tables of a tea stall in front of the Inönü Stadium, waiting for passengers. They said that something was happening in the area. A steamy debate started after they learned that senior guests from all over the world were at the hotel. Laughter mixed with comparisons on the HABITAT Istanbul meeting – The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements. “They did not pay the price for the IETT land either,” said one driver, referring to the latest controversy over the land acquisition of Dubai Crown Prince Sheikh al-Makhtoum.

It was like a National Security Council (MGK) meeting, Ismail Çevik, a driver said. The comment triggered another debate on elections, leading Çevik to ask: “Who will vote for the [governing] Justice and Development Party (AKP)?” Some of the drivers said they were happy with the AKP's policies, while some stayed silent.

The United States “has its finger in the [Bilderberg] meeting,” Çevik continued.

“They are the gendarmerie of the world,” Seyfettin Yüksel added. The secrecy of the meeting did not seem to disturb him. Çevik, however, did not think the same. “Any possibility comes to my mind, when it is confidential,” he said.

“They are not going to destroy Turkey, are they?” a fourth driver asked, declining to give his name. The Bilderberg participants “might be deciding on who the next president of Turkey will be,” he said.

Location Of Bilderberg Group Meeting Unveiled

Elitists attempted to throw media off scent by lying about location

Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker is 99% certain that the Bilderberg Group meeting, which officially starts tomorrow, is to be held at the Ritz Carlton in Istanbul after the group tried to throw the local media off the scent and lie in claiming the elite confab was to take place 40 miles away in the city of Silivri.

"The elite group will be meeting today at the Klassis Hotel in the town of Silivri, 40 miles from Istanbul," wrote the Turkish Zaman daily today, but not according to veteran journalist Jim Ticker, who has spent decades following the activities of the shadowy organization.

Appearing today on the Alex Jones Show, Tucker was all but certain that the meeting is taking place at the Ritz Carlton in Istanbul, judging from the phalanx of armed police and military personnel that have surrounded the hotel.

Bilderberg apparently told the local media that they were meeting at the Klassis Hotel as a decoy to throw them off the scent, particularly after last year's confab in Canada which was blown wide open by Alex Jones and his crew.

Ritz Carlton being the venue is also seemingly confirmed by the fact that the hotel's official website lists "no rooms available for requested dates" when one attempts to book between the 1st and 3rd of June.

The hotel boasts more than 2,403 square meters of meeting and conference space along with 23 suites and 57 Ritz-Carlton Club Level rooms. Judging from pictures, it seems perfectly tailored for secrecy, being surrounded by forests and a huge lake the building gives the appearance as being almost on its own island.

Tucker confirmed that security surrounding the area is intense and that he had been followed by secret police and was under close surveillance.

Tucker will appear again on the Alex Jones Show tomorrow to provide updates about the 2007 Bilderberg agenda and share any information he routinely obtains from moles and hotel workers who are usually happy to spill the beans after being treated like dirt by the elitists.

Bilderberg 2007: Welcome to the Lunatic Fringe

Daniel Estulin | May 21, 2007

In 1954, the most powerful men in the world met for the first time under the auspices of the Dutch royal crown and the Rockefeller family in the luxurious Hotel Bilderberg of the small Dutch town of Oosterbeck. For an entire weekend they debated the future of the world. When it was over, they decided to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze international affairs. They named themselves the Bilderberg Club. Since then, they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world to decide the future of humanity.

In more than fifty years of meetings that brings together unprecedented power and money in the same time and place, never has any information been leaked as to what subjects were debated during the Bilderberg Club meetings. Bilderberg, one of the world's most powerful secret organizations is run out of an 18m2 offices, staffed by one person, using one telephone line and a single fax number. There is no web page and no brass name plate on the door. The independent press has never been allowed in, and no statements have ever been released on the attendees' conclusions nor has any agenda for a Bilderberg meeting been made public. How, in God's name, can this be possible when Bilderberg´s elite membership list includes all of the most powerful individuals who run the Planet?

Leaders of the Bilderberg Club argue that this discretion is necessary to allow participants in the debates to speak freely without being on the record or reported publicly. Otherwise, Bilderbergers state, they would be forced to speak in the language of a press release. Doubtlessly, this discretion allows the Bilderberg Club to deliberate more freely, but that does not respond to the fundamental question: What do the world's most powerful people talk about in these meetings? 

Any modern democratic system protects the right to privacy, but doesn't the public have a right to know what their political leaders are talking about when they meet the wealthiest business leaders of their respective countries?

What guarantees do citizens have that the Bilderberg Club isn't a centre for influence trafficking and lobbying if they aren't allowed to know what their representatives talk about at the Club's secret gatherings? Why are the Davos World Economic Forum and G8 meetings carried in every newspaper, given front page coverage, with thousands of journalists in attendance, while no one covers Bilderberg Club meetings even though they are annually attended by Presidents of the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, Federal Reserve, chairmen of 100 most powerful corporations in the world such as DaimlerChrysler, Coca Cola, British Petroleum, Chase Manhattan Bank, American Express, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft, Vice Presidents of the United States, Directors of the CIA and the FBI, General Secretaries of NATO, American Senators and members of Congress, European Prime Ministers and leaders of opposition parties, top editors and CEOs of the leading newspapers in the world. It is surprising that no mainstream corporate media outlets consider a gathering of such figures, whose wealth far exceeds the combined wealth of all United States citizens, to be newsworthy when a trip by any one of them on their own makes headline news on TV.

Amongst the names appearing on the initial list of invitees which this journalist had access to in January 2007 stand out the names of the now disgraced John Browne, British Petroleum's Chief Executive Officer and the disgraced and fired former chief of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz. It will be interesting to see if either of these men makes an appearance at Bilderberg 2007. The Bilderbergers have no trouble accepting criminals into the fold as long as their misdeeds are conducted away from public spotlight and scrutiny. Once exposed, the culprits are generally discarded. Lord Conrad Black, former chief executive of Hollinger media group is a case in point.

Two others names on the original January 2007 list should raise a few eyebrows. One of them is Bernard Kouchner , the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs in the right wing Nicolas Sarkozy government in France. Kouchner is a former founder of ONG Doctors without Borders. He was absent from Bilderberg 2006 in Ottawa, Canada. Could his government position been arranged prior to the French national elections? For my money, the surprise appearance of year award should go to Mahmood Sariolghalam , Associate Professor of International Relations, School of Economic and Political Sciences, National University of Iran. What is an Iranian doing at a NATO alliance controlled Bilderberg conference? We will know soon enough. Bilderberg 2007 is indeed a good time to look behind the scenes.

What will be discussed at Bilderberg 2007?

Aside from the Irak quagmire, energy problems continue to dominate Bilderberger discussions. Oil and natural gas are finite, non-renewable resources. That's because once used up it cannot be replenished. As the world turns, and as oil and natural gas supplies dwindle while demand soars dramatically, especially with Indian and Chinese booming economies who want all the trinkets and privileges of an American way of life, we, as the Planet, have crossed the midpoint of oil production and discovery. From now on, the only sure thing is that supply will continue to diminish and prices will continue to increase. In these conditions world conflict is a physical certainty. End of oil means end of world's financial system, something which has already been acknowledged by Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, two full time members of the Bilderberger inner circle. Goldman Sachs oil report, [another full time member of the Bilderberger elite] published on March 30, 2005 increased the oil price range for the year 2005-6 from $55-$80 per barrel to $55-$105. During 2006 meeting, Bilderbergers have confirmed that their short range price estimate for oil for the 2007-08 continues to hover around US$105-150/barrel. No wonder Jose Barroso, President of the European Commission, announced several months ago during the unveiling of the new European energy policy that the time has come for a “post-industrial age.” To bring the world into the post industrial age, you first need to destroy the world´s economic base and create another Great Depression. When people are poor, they don´t spend money, they don´t travel, and they don´t consume.

As the economic impact sinks in, and as the after effects of Peak Oil become evident in the face of breakdown of civilization, the United States will be forced to challenge Europe, Russia and China for the hegemony of control and the ever depleting hydrocarbon, non-renewable reserves most of which are contained in the Middle East. That will be point number two on the Bilderberg 2007 agenda.

Third item on the agenda is European relations with Russia not only in Europe but also in Central Asia. With Moscow making a deal with Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan over the transport of gas to Europe, the US geo-strategic goal of driving a wedge between the Central Asian countries and Russia lies in shambles. While the US says this is "not good for Europe", the Europeans are divided. Iran, overnight has become America's last hope in the energy war.

Iran war, after two years of huffing and puffing by the Bush government is definitely off the table. Furthermore, with France, Russia, Japan and China investing heavily in Iran, the world has drawn a line in the sand and the U.S. will be told at the conference not to cross it. There is blood in the water, and blood in the water usually leads to a good fight.

That notwithstanding, the United States needs to control the region, not only for its oil reserves but, most importantly to help it sustain world economic hegemony. Under this strategic design, regional states will be turned to weak domains of sectarian sheikhs with little or no sovereignty and, by implications, a pathetic agenda of their economic development. Regional chaos favours the spread of Islamic fundamentalism, which in turn reinforces the process of political and social disintegration supported by the Bilderbergers. 

With Blair leaving, the UK will be told yet again, that they must, at all cost, do what is necessary to integrate the country into the European Community.

Finally, with Wolfowitz resigning from the World Bank, Bilderberg luminaries will try to come to a consensus on how best to overhaul not only the bank but its sister organization, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), led by a Spaniard, Rodrigo Rato . Wolfowitz became entangled in controversy seven weeks ago after World Bank whistleblowers leaked to the Washington-based non-governmental organization Government Accountability Project (GAP) documents that showed Wolfowitz pushing a high pay raise in a secondment deal to the US State Department for his girlfriend.

We, as a society, are at a crossroads. In almost every corner of the planet, stress points are beginning to fracture. The roads we take from here will determine the very future of humanity. It was former British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, who stated that “the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”

It is not up to God to bring us back from the “New Dark Age” planned for us. IT IS UP TO US. Whether we go into the next century as an electronic global police state or as free human beings depends on the action we take now. Forewarned is forearmed. We will never find the right answers if we don't ask the proper questions.

Communique sent to the Turkish Prime Minister re Bilderberg 2007 8th May 2007

Dear Prime Minister,

I am a Turkish filmmaker living in Ireland. It has come to my attention that the Bilderberg Group are holding their next meeting in Istanbul this year, between May 31 and June 3rd.(1) I have known about this group since 1993 and have been following their activities over the past 14 years. According to many sources, since its inception in 1954 by former Nazi S.S. Officer Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands, the Bilderberg Group have been covertly continuing the Nazi policy of creating a New World Order (a global totalitarian dictatorship). (2)

Likely to attend this year's meeting are Paul Wolfowitz, Dr. Henry Kissinger and Donald Rumsfeld:

o As U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense, Paul Wolfowitz was one of the major architects of the Iraqi War (3) and is still a member of PNAC (Project for a New American Century). PNAC is a neo-conservative think-tank which called for a "catalyzing event" for their policies "like a New Pearl Harbour" exactly a year before 9/11.(4) Mr. Wolfowitz is currently being questioned on charges of corruption and has been asked to resign as head of the World Bank.

o As member of the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group, Dr. Henry Kissinger is also likely to attend. According to many sources, Dr. Kissinger is a mass murderer who implemented and defended the decision to run 600 illegal bombing missions in Cambodia ("Operation Menu"), causing the deaths of over 500,000 Cambodians between 1969 and 1973. Under the U.S. constitution, this secret bombing campaign was illegal without U.S. Congressional approval. (5)

Two months after striking a peace accord with North Vietnam in October 1972, he authorised 129 B-52 bombers to bomb North Vietnam for 11 days in a "demonstration bombing" as a public relations exercise to appease South Vietnam (called "The Christmas Bombing").

Former U.S. Ambassador to Indonesia David Newsom, and a Senior CIA Officer both confirm that on December 5th 1975, Dr. Kissinger, along with President Ford, held a meeting in Indonesia with President Suharto. Transcripts of this meeting prove that he gave the greenlight to the subsequent Indonesian Invasion of East Timor. This lead to the massacre of over 100,000 Timoreans and violated the U.S. law on arms trade. (6)

Recently, a French judge subpoened Dr. Kissinger about U.S. involvement with mass-killings in Chile, Operation Condor and General Augusto Pinochet. He still hasn't attended the hearing and has been evading the subpoena ever since.(7)

o Bilderberg member Donald Rumsfeld is also another PNAC member and was the main architect of the Iraqi War. As he is a regular Bilderberg attendee, there is a possibility that he may attend this year's meeting in Istanbul.(8)

My main concerns and therefore my questions to you are:

(a) Why are war-mongers the likes of Paul Wolfowitz, Henry Kissinger and Donald Rumsfeld being allowed to hold a secret meeting in Turkey this year, without the Turkish people's knowledge or approval?

(b) Why are the Turkish newspapers not discussing this event which will be taking place in Istanbul?

(c) It is obvious that a secret meeting of elite minds and warmongers like these is likely to result in the manufacture of another war for profit. I would therefore like to know whether they will be holding this meeting to plan the next stages of an upcoming war with Iran? Will they be using Turkey as a chess-piece in this next war? Also, as Dr. Kissinger wrote the book "Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy" and admits that he is not averse to using nuclear weapons in a war situation, will they be involving us in a nuclear one?

One journalist who has been invited to this year's meeting is Mr. Cengiz Çandar. However, in my opinion, he will be providing a complete whitewash on this year's event. Being a former lecturer at the Istanbul Bilgi (American) University (9), and a good friend of Paul Wolfowitz during the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, it is obvious in my opinion that Mr. Çandar has been invited to attend the conferences due to his loyalty to Bilderberg, and will most definitely be writing pro-Bilderberg articles. (10) Therefore, it is my belief not to trust him to make an accurate appraisal of this year's meeting and I ask that independent Turkish journalists attend this year, so that the Turkish people know exactly what is taking place in their own country.

I am completely appalled by the total lack of discussion in Turkish newspapers about the upcoming Bilderberg meeting, by the huge level of secrecy and denial surrounding it, the total lack of transparency of these meetings, and by the high level of ignorance Turkish people are showing about the Bilderberg Group. A secret meeting is being held by the world's most influential warmongers, right under our noses! This is an outrage.

As a Turkish citizen, I am deeply offended that my own government would allow this secret meeting to take place on Turkish soil without our knowledge or approval. I therefore ask you that there be complete journalistic transparency at the upcoming Bilderberg meeting in Istanbul this year. If the Bilderberg Group have nothing to hide, then we must be allowed a full transcript of their meeting. Therefore, the Independent Turkish Press must attend the meeting this year. If this is not possible, I ask that you, as a servant of the Turkish people, not allow the upcoming Bilderberg meeting to take place in Turkey.

As a public servant, I expect your reply within 10 working days of receiving this Open Letter.

Yours sincerely,

Timuçin Leflef

A very concerned Turkish Citizen

Jim Tucker: Bilderberg 2007 - Istanbul, Turkey

Jim Tucker joins Alex Jones to discuss the upcoming conference of the global elite Bilderberg Group which gets together once a year in near secrecy to steer world policy behind closed doors. This year's confab takes place in Istanbul Turkey and Tucker gives us the lowdown on the personalities expected to attend along with the probable policy agenda.

Dutch TV Coverage Exposing 2007 Bilderberg Conference

JonesReport | April 24, 2007
Aaron Dykes

This may well prove to be the biggest year yet for press coverage of the Bilderberg group, much to the chagrin of its secretive and overly-influential members, as evidenced by this Dutch TV piece reporting on the upcoming meeting in Istanbul.

This is at least the second major report just leaking the location, following an interview in the Turkish paper Referans , where Paul Wolfowitz outed the location of the meeting, bragging about his involvement, as Prison Planet previously reported .

Last year's meeting in Ottawa was considered to be a breakthrough in a long-standing blackout on Bilderberg, particularly in American media, despite near-perfect attendance to the meetings by the Washington Times editors and a number of other mainstream newspapers ( survey the 2006 attendees list for more information ).

Canadian media made Bilderberg a front page story during the Ottawa conference in both mainstream press and tabloids alike; it also garnered some TV coverage.

This TV report covers Bilderberg's history as well. They interview Spanish journalist, author and long-time Bilderberg reporter Daniel Estulin about the group's agenda-- and while they cite the vision for a one world government with a unified currency and a cashless society as "conspiracy," they ask intelligent questions and manage not to snicker, except at the mention of a Dutch politician not considered to be influential as the clip ends.

The Dutch reporters also highlight the group's secretive nature, its refusal to make public announcements and it's influential role as kingmaker-- at least in the cases of Clinton and Blair.

The clip includes interesting archive interviews with both David Rockefeller and Prince Bernhard discussing the secretive group and its 'charismatic' former leader, Bernhard himself, who interests are now looked after by Queen Beatrix.

Wolfowitz To Attend 2007 Istanbul Bilderberg Meeting
Turkish journalist refers to ultra-elitist confab as "covert world government"

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Tuesday, April 10, 2007

In an interview with a Turkish journalist, World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz brags of his upcoming attendance of the 2007 Bilderberg Group meeting in Istanbul Turkey, while the journalist who is also set to be an an attendee refers to the elitist confab as a "covert world government."

Bilderberg is an annual conference of the global elite, the location of which changes every year. Power brokers from industry, oil, politics, banking, business, academia, royalty and the media get together to secretly discuss the course of the world with no independent oversight or press coverage whatsoever, save leaked details obtained by muck-raking lone journalists like veteran Jim Tucker.

Bilderberg claims it does not set policy and yet whatever is discussed usually pans out in the real world within 12 months.

The BBC uncovered documents form a former Bilderberg member dating back to the early 50's betraying the fact that the European Union and the single Euro currency were both brainchild's of the Bilderberg Group.

At the 2005 Bilderberg meeting in Munich Germany, leaked talking points obtained from the speeches given at the conference indicated that Bilderberg expected oil prices to surge over the next 12 months, which is exactly what happened.

Bilderberg has a proven history of acting in a kingmaker capacity. Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair attended before becoming President and Prime Minister and the mainstream media reported that Bilderberg selected John Edwards as Kerry's running mate in 2004. Hillary Clinton was rumored to have attended last year's conference.

The Turkish news website Referans features an article written by Cengiz Çandar, who recently interviewed Wolfowitz in Washington about Turkey's relationship with the World Bank.

During the interview, according to a translation carried at Bilderberg.org, Wolfowitz spoke of his anticipation at potentially attending Bilderberg's next get-together in Istanbul, which runs from 31st of May to June 3rd.

Wolfowitz describes Bilderberg as a "a valuable opportunity to meet many people and make acquaintances."

Çandar, relishing his own invitation to attend, states, "For years, conspiracy theorists claimed that the Bilderberg was covert world government. This year I will be there myself. I shall see what covert world government is all about," to which Wolfowitz mockingly responds, "That is still being claimed, there are many web sites making similar claims."

Çandar refers to Wolfowitz as having "Been in the administration of the Bilderberg and attended these meetings many times already."

The main theme of this year's conference, overlapping with Bilderberg's sister organization the Trilateral Commission, is likely to be an agreement on behalf of the power brokers to fan the hysteria of man-made global warming in order to push a standardized carbon tax.

Shortly before last year's Bilderberg Group meeting in Ottawa Canada, Alex Jones and his film crew were detained overnight by Canadian immigration officials and interrogated simply for trying to fly into the country to provide media coverage of an event that is uniformly ignored by major establishment newspapers because their own editors are in attendance and sworn to secrecy.

Jones was told by the immigration officials that they were tipped off by Bilderberg security and ordered to detain the radio host and his crew. Laptops were searched as Alex and crew were shouted at, harassed, and threatened with jail or deportation.

In addition, three Canadian citizens who visited the Brookestreet Hotel in Ottawa where Bilderberg met were kidnapped off the street by militarized police with guns, detained without charge and suffered the ordeal of a marathon interrogation session and psychological torture - including threats to "cut off the arms" of one of the victims.

This is how the Bilderberg Group treats anyone that tries to peaceably protest or simply cover their activities, so forgive us for scoffing when claims that they are a benign talking shop for publicity shy old men are regurgitated year upon year by the lapdog press that dare even mention their name, while demonizing the rest of us as conspiracy theorists for even suggesting that a secret conference of 200+ world power brokers, including Congressmen and members of Parliament, without oversight, is worthy of some serious scrutiny.

Brown Answers Bilderberg Question

Last week we reported how British MP, Norman Baker, had officially asked the current Chancellor of the Exchequer, and most likely next Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to reveal details of his attendances at Bilderberg.

British MP Asking More Questions About Bilderberg

A British MP, who previously asked Prime Minister Tony Blair to reveal details of any Bilderberg meetings he has attended, has now officially asked the current Chancellor of the Exchequer, and most likely next Prime Minister, to reveal details of his own attendances at Bilderberg.

British MP Asking More Questions About Bilderberg
This time the next Prime Minister is the focus

A British MP, who previously asked Prime Minister Tony Blair to reveal details of any Bilderberg meetings he has attended, has now officially asked the current Chancellor of the Exchequer, and most likely next Prime Minister, to reveal details of his own attendances at Bilderberg.

Norman Baker, MP for Lewes, has officially requested that Gordon Brown provide an oral or written answer to the following question:

Norman Baker (Lewes): To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, in which years since 1997 (a) he and (b) other Treasury Ministers have attended meetings of the Bilderberg Group.
The question has been officially submitted and it will now take a few weeks before it is answered in the House of Commons.

Mr Baker previously asked Tony Blair the same question, to which Blair answered "I have not attended any such meetings."

Blair may not have attended since he came to power but he certainly was "groomed" by the secretive group, at the same time as Bill Clinton, before either were elected into office.

It will be interesting to note Brown's answer given that he is known to have attended the Bilderberg Conference when he was shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1991 and possibly again in 1995.

In a separate development, an answer has been provided to a question about Bilderberg that was raised in the House of Lords:
Official Travel: Bilderberg Conference
Lord Stoddart of Swindon asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any Ministers attended the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa between 8 and 11 June; if so, whether they attended in a ministerial or private capacity; whether they made contributions to debates; and, if so, on which subjects.[HL7569]

Lord Bassam of Brighton answered: All ministerial visits are conducted in accordance with the Ministerial Code and Travel by Ministers. Since 1999, the Government have published annually a list of overseas travel by Cabinet Ministers costing over £500 and the total cost of all ministerial travel. Information for 2005-06 was published on Monday 24 July 2006. Copies are available in the Library for the reference of noble Lords. Information for 2006-07 will be published as soon as possible after the end of the financial year. Information on other Ministers' travel is not collected centrally.

There was no response indicating what subjects were discussed by said ministers in attendance.

FLASHBACK: U.S. Sen. John Edwards at Bilderberg

John Edwards, the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004, has announced he will again run for the White House.

Mr Edwards has taken the risky decision of launching his second presidential run in the normally slow news week between Christmas and New Year. Although they have yet to declare their candidacy, Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are widely expected to throw their hats into the ring.

Mr Edwards launched his campaign last night in a poor New Orleans neighborhood, where thousands of people are still living in poverty following Hurricane Katrina.

The former North Carolina senator reiterated to his supporters that there are "two Americas" - one for the comfortable and another for the struggling. He has proposed a series of work, housing and school measures aimed at lifting millions of Americans out of poverty in the next 10 years, and called for a goal of ending poverty within 30 years.

"I’m running to ask millions of Americans to take responsibility and take action to change our country and ensure America’s greatness in the 21st century," he wrote on his website, under the slogan "Tomorrow begins today."

Mr Edwards, the son of a millworker and the first person in his family to attend college, was one of the country’s most successful and wealthy personal injury attorneys before entering politics in 1998.

He left the Senate after one term to run for president, entering the primaries as a potential "fresh face" before candidates like Howard Dean and John Kerry overtook him.

As his rivals dropped away, Mr Edwards kept plugging his economic message. He rose to become the last major challenger for Mr Kerry, who won the nomination and chose Mr Edwards as his vice presidential running mate.

Unless former vice president Al Gore makes a late entry into the fray – perhaps on the back his successful global warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth — Mr Edwards is likely to be one of the big challengers for the Democrat nomination in 2008.

Mr Edwards has been out of office since he stepped down as senator for North Carolina to run for president in 2004, and has used the time to court voters assiduously in the key states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, where the first party primary and caucus votes are held. His legwork has paid off, giving him a 20 per cent lead over Mrs Clinton in Iowa, where the 2008 campaign begins in earnest in 13 months' time.

Those that become Prime Minister's or leaders of other countries who had gone to Bilderberg meetings need to be questioned on their involvement with this group.

A 1987 issue of the Economist magazine once declared: “when you have scaled the Bilderberg, you have arrived.” This is why Stephen Harper’s recent attendance at the 2003 Bilderberg meeting has such significance, as it indicates that the global ruling class has placed its long-term bets on Harper. This is important for the Conservative leadership race, as Belinda Stronach has only captured the hearts of the World Economic Forum crowd, who rank lower in the global-ruling food chain. However, the real leadership race is amongst the partisan plebeians, and in all likelihood, the globalists can only hope for a positive outcome. God help Canada Full Story

Blair Quizzed on Bilderberg
Denies attending any elite conferences in the House of Commons. Is he lying again?

Steve Watson / Infowars.net | October 20 2006

Tony Blair was questioned in the House of Commons yesterday on his involvement with the secretive Bilderberg Group. Liberal Democrat MP, Norman Baker asked Blair to provide a full answer to a previous 12th October question about Bilderberg and whether Mr Blair had had any involvement in Bilderberg Conferences since he became Prime Minister in 1997.

The entry into the House of Commons records is below and can be viewed online here:

Prime Minister
Bilderberg Group

Norman Baker: To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to the answer of 12 October 2006, Official Report, column 862W, on the Bilderberg Group, if he will provide the information requested in respect of himself since 1997. [95308]

The Prime Minister: I have not attended any such meetings.

Is Blair telling the truth? Certainly he has lied about previous attendances to Bilderberg meetings, most notably the 1993 conference which he attended before he'd even become leader of his own party. One year after his attendance Blair became leader of the Labour party and a rapid rise to power, culminating in his election as Prime Minister in 1997, ensued that baffled many political analysts.

In 1998 an MP asked Blair the same question to which he gave the same answer, that he had never attended a Bilderberg meeting. However, the evidence clearly shows he was there. A number of mainstream media reports, plus the official Bilderberg attendee list, confirm that Blair attended Bilderberg in Athens in 1993. Furthermore, Parliamentary records prove he was there with long term member, and supposed opposition party stalwart Ken Clarke.

Tony Gosling at Bilderberg.org has tirelessly worked to expose the influence that the Bilderberg group has on world events. Here he analyses the incredible rise to power that other Western leaders have experienced after attending Bilderberg meetings.

Norman Baker, the MP who questioned Blair, has recently made waves in British politics by launching into a private, year-long investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly, the scientist who found himself under siege after apparently accusing the government of ‘sexing up’ the case for war to a BBC journalist.

Kelly, the UK's leading weapons inspector, was found dead under a tree on Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire after telling associates and friends that he feared that's what would happen to him. An inquiry set up under Lord Hutton duly reported that Dr Kelly had committed suicide. In a brave attempt to reveal the truth, Norman Baker disputes this conclusion.

Baker has also recently suggested that he sees inconsistencies in the official story of the 9/11 attacks.

This year's Bilderberg Conference was held in Ottawa Canada and was covered in depth by Alex Jones and the Infowars team who went through hell and high water to protest and raise awareness of the event.

Bilderberg has a proven history of acting in a kingmaker capacity, yet they are unelected and unaccountable to anyone. Their directives are driven towards undermining national sovereignty and establishing a world order that benefits their elite interests. Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair were "groomed" by Bilderberg before becoming President and Prime Minister and the mainstream media reported that Bilderberg selected John Edwards as John Kerry's running mate in 2004.

Further Parliamentary records indicate that the shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer attended the Bilderberg conference this year. This is interesting given that Gordon Brown, a man on the verge of becoming the next Prime Minister, attended the Bilderberg Conference when he was shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1991.

A House of Lords minute entry dated 11th October also indicates that an answer is awaited on whether any ministers attended this year's Bilderberg Conference:

The Lord Stoddart of Swindon—To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any Ministers attended the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa between 8th and 11th June; if so, whether they attended in a Ministerial or private capacity; whether they made contributions to debates; and, if so, on which subjects. [CO] (HL7569)

It seems that some members of The Houses want to know exactly who is attending Bilderberg meetings and in what capacity.

Bush's Secret Advisor Has Bloody Past

As more U.S. soldiers die in Iraq, and President Bush tells Americans he will “stay the course” even if his only supporters are his wife and their dog, Barney, reports have come out that Bush is getting advice from a man who knows all about failure.

Bush's Secret Advisor Has Bloody Past
Bilderberg Luminary Now Has Ear Of The President

Richard Walker / American Free Press | October 9 2006

As more U.S. soldiers die in Iraq, and President Bush tells Americans he will “stay the course” even if his only supporters are his wife and their dog, Barney, reports have come out that Bush is getting advice from a man who knows all about failure.

That man is Henry Kissinger, 88, who served as national security advisor and secretary of state under Richard Nixon and then Gerald Ford.

According to Washington Post editor, Bob Woodward whose new book State of Denial is giving the White House a political headache, Kissinger has been advising Bush behind the scenes for some time during his regular visits to the White House.

The presence of Kissinger within the Bush White House should be no surprise to those who have studied his political career, including his influence on the neo-conservative movement and his membership in the shadowy group known as Bilderberg. His role as advisor to this president may help explain some of the president’s view about the war in Iraq and also some of his language.

One of Kissinger’s favorite sayings is, “the absence of alternatives clears the mind marvelously.” In other words, never seek alternatives, or as he told some of the most notorious regimes during his stint as a national security advisor, “succeed and get the job done quickly.”

According to Woodward, Kissinger thinks he is fighting the war in Vietnam all over again, except that this time he intends to win it. Likewise, Bush has made it clear that he will seek victory in Iraq—whatever that may mean—no matter how many American soldiers lose their lives.

Kissinger has emerged from the background this year to make a series of statements furthering the neo-conservative agenda about rebuilding the Middle East and creating a new world order. He has been especially active in articulating views that dovetail with Israel’s perceptions of how America should develop its Middle East strategy.

Born a German, of Jewish origin, Kissinger has made no secret of his support for Zionism and his close links to Israel. On Sept. 3, he publicly declared that European nations should put aside their differences with the United States because both sides were facing a possible “war of civilizations” that “dwarfed transatlantic mistrust left over from the war in Iraq.”

Mankind was facing a “global catastrophe,” he warned, and that meant America and its allies had to start constructing a “new world order.”

If Kissinger’s past teaches anything about his “new world order” it is that he will get into bed with dictators and the cost of his policies in human lives lost will not mean too much to his sensibilities. A brief examination of his days as national security advisor and secretary of state under Nixon and Ford, confirm his taste for dirty, clandestine wars, as well as an ability to hide the truth from Congress and the American people.

In 1969, he advocated the secret “carpet” bombing of neutral Cambodia that led to the killing of half a million innocent lives and is believed to have contributed to the subsequent rise of the dictator, Pol Pot whose Khmer Rouge militias massacred millions in what became known as “the killing fields.” In 1973, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace for negotiating a ceasefire with North Vietnam, even though the war in Vietnam continued for another two years.

If Cambodia was an example of his ability to operate in the shadows so was his support for the invasion of East Timor by the corrupt Indonesian regime of General Suharto. Documents have now surfaced showing that a day before the invasion on December 7, 1975, Kissinger told the dictator:

“It is important whatever you do, do succeed quickly.” Kissinger was concerned American public opinion would not favor a brutal or prolonged occupation of East Timor that nine days earlier had declared independence from Portugal. The invasion led to the death of almost a quarter of a million Timorese and a subsequent occupation killed almost a third of the population in what Amnesty International called genocide.
