The Iron Triangle:
Bush, Carlyle and the real culprits of September 11

"The scandal here [Carlyle] is not what's illegal, but what's legal"

Dan Briody




Sometime ago, as I reiterated the need of a new way of thinking circularly rather than thinking linearly, I expressed the saying we have met the enemy and he is us.




Today, as I see Bush&Co. invade Iraq and control its OIL while leaving a trail of deaths, looting, insecurity and desperation, I must rephrase the above mentioned saying as: we have met the enemy and he is U.S. Bush&Co. along with his neo-uber-alles friends of the Project of the New America Century think for others, behave on behalf of others, and in the meantime spread the American dollar world wide to sustain the American economy.




Some years ago economist Dean Baker, co-director for the Center of Economic and Policy Research, expressed the need for the devaluation of the American dollar in time of peace, and now we have experienced the devaluation of the American dollar at time of war. But wait, the American dollar is spreading in Iraq and could be spreading in more countries, and maybe, maybe the American economy would find its growth again at the expense of every other country.




America would fix all the problems of this world with the New World Order as commanded by Bush&Co., more wars, more countries with American dollar and freedom for Bush&Co. and their neo-uber-alles friends. Now, president Bush wants to go after any country of this world because they have biological and chemical weapons, and he doesn't look himself in the mirror. Yes, America is the country with more weapons of mass destruction than any other and president Bush has relationships with the most infamous crony capitalistic business making money out of wars: the Carlyle group.




Investigative journalist Dan Briody has just published the book "The Iron Triangle: Inside the Secret World of the Carlyle Group" and he defines this triangle as the business intersection of Washington politics, national security, and private capital, while I would rather define the extension of this similar but bigger triangle as Fascism, the bundling of governments, military industrial complex and crony capitalism.




I laughed this morning as I read some excerpts of this book from the related Amazon web pages. Briody explains how Carlyle was born out of an Eskimo tax scam in the oil sector where business losses were sold to other businesses. Carlyle was named as such by the founders, political and business insiders Stephen Norris and David Rubenstein, because the same founders were enjoying the amenities of the Carlyle hotel while transacting losses for businesses to become bigger profits for other businesses.

Read the stories about the Carlyle Group, and get acquainted on how the Bush family is connected to Osama bin Laden, and why the Carlyle Group has been called the Ex-Presidents Club, a club which includes a string of Canadian politicians such as Frank McKenna, former Premier of New Brunswick, and Peter Lougheed, former Premier of Alberta. This is not a joke, former US secretary of state James Baker and representatives of the bin Laden family were at the annual investor conference of the Carlyle Group on September 11, 2001 held at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.




Today, I learn that James Baker is defending the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia against a lawsuit seeking $1 trillion in damages on behalf of the victims of the September 11 terror attacks. I have one question: What has happened to the so called president Bush's independent investigation surrounding the intelligence failures before the September 11 terrorist attack?




We are at a time of war, a war chosen by president Bush as a weapon of mass destruction from the real culprits of the September 11 terrorist attack.
