Here's some more food for thought. We've seen the connections between Gilead and the American Enterprise Institute. One of the directors of the AEI
was millionaire businessman Daniel D’Aniello, who was a co-founder of the Carlyle Group.
The Carlyle Group is a large private equity firm, whose membership includes the two Bushes, members of the Bush administration, and Shafig Bin Laden,
the brother of Osama. In 2001, Carlyle acquired United Defense, which made millions off The War on Terror. Bin Laden's are intricately linked to
A Carlyle executive said the bin Laden family committed $2 million through a London investment arm in Carlyle Partners II Fund, which raised $ 1.3
billion overall. The fund has purchased several aerospace companies among 29 deals. So far, the family received $1.3. million back in completed
investments and should ultimately realize a 40% annualized rate of return, the Carlyle executive said.
But a foreign financier with ties to the bin Laden family says the family's overall investment with Carlyle is considerably larger. He called the $2
million merely an initial contribution. "It's like plowing a field," this person said. "You seed it once. You plow it, and then you reseed it
A U.S. inquiry into bin Laden family business dealings could brush against some big names associated with the U.S. government. Former President
Bush said through his chief of staff, Jean Becker, that he recalled only one meeting with the bin Laden family, which took place in November 1998. Ms.
Becker confirmed that there was a second meeting in January 2000, after being read the ex-president's subsequent thank-you note. "President Bush
does not have a relationship with the bin Laden family," says Ms. Becker. "He's met them twice."
Another member of the Carlyle Group was Frank Carlucci.
Frank Charles Carlucci III (born October 18, 1930) is a former government official in the United States, associated with the Republican Party. He
was United States Secretary of Defense from 1987 until 1989.
During the early 1970s Rumsfeld became Mr. Carlucci's protégé as Mr. Carlucci showed him the ropes. Carlucci was Undersecretary of
Health, Education and Welfare when Caspar Weinberger was secretary during the Nixon administration. Carlucci became Ambassador to Portugal, and served
in this position from 1974 until 1977. He is still very fondly remembered in Portugal among the winners of the November 25 Coup d'Etat . Carlucci
was Deputy Director of the CIA from 1978-1981, under CIA Director Stansfield Turner. Carlucci was deputy defense secretary from 1981 until 1983 ,
national security advisor from 1986 until 1987, and defense secretary in 1987, following the resignation of Weinberger, his nomination by President
Ronald Reagan and his confirmation in the Senate by a vote of 91 to 1. He was reportedly less hard-line in policies toward the Soviet Union than
On January 5, 2006, he participated in a meeting at the White House of former Secretaries of Defense and State to discuss United States foreign policy
with Bush administration officials.
He is also a member of the CFR and a director of the Wackenhut corporation. Wackenhut, like Carlucci, would be linked (like Gilead's George P.
Shultz) to Iran-Contra:
Wackenhut was also involved in illegal US operations in Central America in the 1980s. By exploiting the Cabazon Indian reservation as a sovereign
nation, they intended to produce and export explosives to the Contras, evading Congressional law to the contrary
What exactly did Wackenhut do at Cazabon?
In the early 1980's, Dr. John Nichols, the Cabazon tribal administrator, obtained a department of Defense secret facility clearance for the
reservation to conduct various research projects. Nichols then approached Wackenhut with an elaborate "joint venture" proposal to manufacture 120mm
combustible cartridge cases, 9mm machine pistols, lasersighted assault weapons, sniper rifles and portable rocket systems on the Cabazon reservation
and in Latin America. At one point, he even sought to develop biological weapons.
Of course, Iran-Contra would become embroiled with the global drug trade. According to former CIA man Albert Carone:
"NSC used drug trafficking profits to start FEMA without congressional approval...a 1981 NSC Directive written by Frank Carlucci
[states]: `Normally a state of martial law will be proclaimed by the President. However in the absence of such action by the President, a senior
military commander may impose martial law in an area of his command where there had been a complete breakdown in the exercise of government functions
by local authorities.'"
"Colonel Carone said a literal interpretation of the 1981 NSC Directive was that a local yokel national guard commander could institute martial
law, and the actions of FEMA, without local citizens ever knowing how FEMA came to be, or what FEMA was originally intended to be about, would
automatically be triggered without any type of presidential order... Congress doesn't even have the purse strings on this one. It's all from the
Black Operations Fund which Congress will never force the US Intelligence Community to admit even exists."
Could all be coincidence, but who knows?
