The Koch Brothers are two of the most dangerous people on the planet with their pure concentration of wealth and lust for power. Theirs is the legacy of the Business Plot of '35; and their desire, which they disguise behind a mask of Libertarianism, is to be the New Order's equivalent of Feudal Lords.

The ridiculous NRO article is pretty laughable for many many reasons. One reason is the National Review is a mouthpiece for the brothers.
Breaking News: Organisation funded by Koch Brothers repeatedly defends Koch Brothers.
- Koch Industries used the European offices of their subsidiary Koch-Glitsch to sell millions of dollars of petrochemical equipment to Iran in an apparent violation of the US-Iran trade embargo, as recently as 2007
- Internal documents of Koch Industries prove that the company took elaborate steps to ensure that their US-employees weren't involved in the sales to Iran
- While is not 100% certain at this point that Koch Industries did in fact violate US law, according to Bloomberg Markets Magazine, internal memos show for example that the details of the sales with Iran were meticulously checked by US lawyers of Koch Industries and coordinated with the lawyers in order to fully ensure that no visible involvement of US-citizens took place
- Koch Industries paid bribes in six countries from 2002 to 2008 to win business in Africa, India and the Middle East, comparable to similar behaviour of German technology giant Siemens (Siemens subsequently had to pay a $ 1.6 billion fine!) - These revelations were made possible through newly discovered documents from two labour court cases in France
