Barack O’Bilderberg: Picking the President

11-06-2008 15:26

Recently, there has been much discussion about Barack Obama having possibly
attended the recent Bilderberg conference in Virginia. This speculation arose
when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sneaked off for a secretive meeting
while in Virginia. As the AP reported, "Reporters traveling with Obama sensed
something might be happening between the pair when they arrived at Dulles
International Airport after an event in Northern Virginia and Obama was not

11-06-2008 13:49

What Israel wants from the Americans, Israel gets - and in spades from Barack Obama. Along with Hillary Clinton and John McCain, Obama bent his knees to the breaking point in pleasing to please the annual conference of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
