The Carlyle Group, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr.: scandalous conflicts of interest

I humbly present to you the avid reader a scandalous video documentary (realvideo format) about the origins of The Carlyle Group, it’s connections with Saudi Arabia, George Bush Sr., George Bush Jr., the Bin Laden family and various other former politicians. The first 1:47 is in Dutch, however the rest is in English.

This is undeniably the most unpalatable and egregious conflict of interest I have ever born witness to in our government and can only express my distaste and revulsion by proffering this warning by the late President Eisenhower:

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.
