The secretive Bilderberg Group's agenda for its 2012 meeting has attracted national attention with an article by veteran Politico journalist Ken Vogel exploring charges that the organization is set to play a decisive role in the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
The article, entitled Marco Rubio as vice president: the Bilderberg conspiracy, focuses around our piece from back in April which flagged the fact that the Washington Post, itself a creature of Bilderberg, had not so subtly implied that Bilderberg may have a hand in picking Mitt Romney's running mate just as they picked VP candidates in 2004 and 2008.
"Like any good conspiracy theory, there's just enough there to stoke questions," writes Vogel. "John Edwards's speech to the Bilderberg Group's 2004 meeting in Stresa, Italy, reportedly helped clinch his selection as that year's Democratic vice presidential candidate. And Jim Johnson, the man who chaired that vice presidential selection process and initially was tasked with spearheading Barack Obama's 2008 search for a running mate, is a leading Bilderberg member, while prominent Romney advisers including Robert Kagan and Vin Weber have attended past meetings, as have Bill Clinton, Donald Rumsfeld and top finance, media and tech executives."
