OT: Weekend Reading - The Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg Group? What's that? You will either get an exasperated look from so-called "conspiracy theorists" for having been so ignorant, or get a scornful look from everyone else for being a "conspiracy theorist".

Here's how Wikipedia explains.

And here's the experience of a reporter for the UK paper Guardian, who tried to crash this year's meeting at a resort hotel in Athens, Greece.

And this from Politico. The US attendees apparently included:

  • James Steinberg (Deputy Secretary of State)
  • Richard Holbrooke (Special Envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan)
  • Paul Volcker (chairman of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board)
  • Keith Alexander (National Security Agency Director)
  • Robert Zoellick (World Bank President)
  • Richard Perle
  • Paul Wolfowitz
  • David Rockefeller
