Israeli newspapers reported Dennis Ross gave an October deadline for talks with Iran. He did so during a "Europe trip." Was it the annual Bilderberg meeting, held on a Greek Isle? It occurred May 14-17 and was covered by one mainstream journalist, from The Guardian, a British paper.
Charlie Skelton's first few posts mocked conspiracy theory paranoia. However, the super tight, heavily-armed security net surrounding the meeting eventually wore on Skelton. By the end of his trip, Charlie wrote:
I came to make a few cracks about Bilderberg and ended up getting sledgehammered in the nuts.Who attended from the Obama camp? A German web site said General James L. Jones and General David Petraeus joined Tim Geithner, Larry Summers, Paul Volcker, Richard Holbrooke and Dennis Ross at the 2009 meeting. Paul Wolfowitz attended and I believe he still has State Department responsibilities. Wolfowitz had the company of fellow neocons Richard Pearle and Robert Kagan in Greece.
Publicity is pure poison to the world's global power elite. So we should all turn up to its next annual meeting with a few more tubs of the stuff.
Recall Democratic Presidential front runners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama detoured from Reagan Airport to nearby Northern Virginia suburbs during last year's Bilderberg soiree. Did they talk to hegemonic global powers gathered in Chantilly, Virginia?
Bilderberg meetings are closed to the press, participants are asked not to publicly discuss the proceedings and the attendee list is only occasionally released.
Distinguished media leaders attend every year, but they keep their silence in return for a seat at the heady world power table. WaPo's Donald Graham is a regular, but his venerable daily avoids Bilderberg. Fareed Zakaria of Newsweek made this year's meeting.
How might the Obama team's help transition the IMF into a global Treasury or the WHO into global health department? Will philanthropy money pave the way? A secret meeting of billionaires was called by David Rockefeller, also a Bilderberger. On May 5, they discussed ways to continue philanthropy while many economies suffer. Will it involve giving super power to benefactors, by matching their favorite projects with U.S. taxpayer money?
How might Bilderberg let the air out of the dollar? How might Obama continue steering financial form to benefit the big money boys, like Henry Kravis of KKR, who attended Bilderberg. But those were just ideas at the 2009 gathering.
Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.Gee, that sounds great. For something that wonderful, why do they need an army, navy and air force?
A police officer told the Associated Press (on condition of anonymity): "The resort was being protected by hundreds of police, navy commandos, coast guard speedboats and two F-16 fighter planes." That's right. Two F-16 fighter planes.Soaring rhetoric and heavy handed, greed fueled reality? No wonder President Obama was a hit at the 2008 Bilderberg meeting. They have something in common.
