Katryn,

Daar was ook 'n artikel oor die Bush Sr / Carlyle storie in die Observer
hier laas jaar. Daar is allerhande interessante konneksies, soos

"Carlyle has a glittering array of ex-politicians and big league bankers on
its board. Former secretary of state James Baker is managing director while
ex-secretary of defence Frank Carlucci is chairman. George Bush senior is an
adviser. John Major heads up its European operations. To give the conspiracy
theorists plenty of ammunition, US newspapers have also highlighted the fact
that current Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was a wrestling partner of
Carlucci's at Princeton and the two have remained close friends ever since"

Aan die een kant dink mens dat sameswering teoriee so funksioneer (dit maak
konnekies tussen dinge, en gee dit dan 'n spesifieke interpretasie), maar
dan alle sameswering teoriee is nie noodwendig verkeerd nie. En dat die
Carlyle groep baie goed doen uit wereld konflik, is seker.

Nog 'n aanhaling uit die artikel:

"Carlyle - whose high-profile investors include George Soros and Saudi
Arabia's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal - refutes suggestions it profits from
war. Co-founder William Conway even went on record saying 'no one wants to
be a beneficiary of 11 September.'

This may be true, but unfortunately for the Carlyle Group its investments
are beneficiaries of this new era of multilateral conflict. Indeed, a case
can be made that even those companies Carlyle wouldn't class as defence
investments - and which aren't examined by Briody - have benefited.

Last month it bought CSX Lines, an ocean carrier firm that specialises in
shipping heavy equipment. One of its biggest customers is the US military.
Late last year it bought Firth Rixson, a specialist engineering firm that
makes aerospace parts. It also has a 33 per cent stake in Qinetiq, the
government's Defence Evaluation and Research Agency.

Whatever Carlyle says, its image as being at the apex of what Eisenhower
termed the 'military industrial complex' endures".



Daar was selfs sprake hier dat daar onderhandeling met die Carlyle groep is
om die (konserwatiewe) Telegraph koerant hier uit hulle finansiele
moeilikheid te help.
