A few weeks ago, James Baker publicly offered advice to the Bush Administration on how they should proceed with their war on Iraq. What he and every
newscaster or commentator failed to mention was that Baker is now employed by the highly-influential Carlyle Group, which is the eleventh largest
defense contractor in the United States. In essence, then, we have a man trying to influence public policy while privately employed by a company that
has a vested interest in activating AmericaÝs War Machine.
If youÝre not familiar with them, the Carlyle Group has become a powerhouse in affecting the direction in which our foreign policy takes, especially
in regard to war. They accomplish this by hiring former government officials, then investing in private companies that are subject to government
the military and telecommunications). Who, you may ask, do they employ to secure their government contracts?
