|It has been revealed that the Bilderberg have scheduled their next meeting for Istanbul, Turkey, beginning tomorrow and ending June 3rd. The Bilderberg group is a secretive organization that aspires to bring about a New World Order through increased globalization and cooperation between countries. The gathering boasts a membership of former and current heads of state, royalty, world bankers, pop-stars and other influential figures. Guests at this year's conference are expected to include former World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz, former US Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger and former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. |
Quote: "According to Vatan, re-choosing Turkey as a venue after 32 years, can be interpreted as "a signal hinting the opening of EU's doors to Turkey". During last year's meeting, Turkey-EU relations were also discussed quite intensely by the participants.
The meetings are held each year in an undisclosed location in the utmost secrecy. The media, which is mostly controlled by members of the organization itself, is kept away from the event. No minutes are taken of the meeting, and no official consensus is reached at its conclusion. Upon entering the gathering attendees claim they do so as "citizens", and not as the influential leaders they really are. By doing this they absolve themselves of any accountability they may have to their own government in their home countries. Such was the case with former Defence Secretary George Robertson, who was quizzed by the Conservative Party as to why he had used £3,840 of taxpayers money to attend a Bilderberg meeting with Javier Solana, then NATO Secretary General. Other members of the British parliament that have attended Bilderberg meetings in the past include Prime Minister Tony Blair and Conservative member Kenneth Clarke.
