Can you keep a Secret?

Thats a whole lot of old...No, sorry Al you're not needed

In two days time there will be an invasion in Athens, Georgia...

We are hosting a special Secretaries of State Roundtable entitled, if you can believe it, "Bipartisan Advice to the Next Administration"

On hand Thursday, March 27th...Five former Secretaries of State. Henry Kissinger, James Baker III, Warren Christopher, Madeleine Albright, and late addition Gen. Colin Powell.

As the one day event sold out in a matter of hours, I won't be in attendance...however, I will do my best to obtain a transcript or provide any highlights that I can.

James Baker can ONLY imagine what went on here.

Athens, Ga. - In late March, several former secretaries of state will be in Athens to discuss current U.S. foreign policy issues with the goal of providing direction and counsel to the next presidential administration.

Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. This will be the 16th Report of the Secretaries of State produced by the SCIS. Rusk participated in several of these sessions while teaching at the School of Law for nearly 25 years.

There's a story that when Havel became President of Czechoslovakia in 1990 he suggested having Frank Zappa as Minister of Culture.
On a trip to Russia JBIII stopped off in Prague, and , apparently. told Havel in no uncertain terms that there would be none of that.
The Revolutionary of a year before complied.

Thanks for the post and update Todd! It will interesting to see what transpires there..also interesting is that it is being held in ATHENS.. hopefully there will be some video available. I am also curious to see if Madeleine has a new NWO broche .. she typically wears big ones(as does Feinstein).. the gold one with the 2 snakes wrapped around a sword seems to be her favorite.

Have a great day!

The venue is only a couple of blocks from my office, so I might walk over with my camera. not likely to get any pictures of the big 5 but one never knows.

Also, they might have some extra tickets floating around the box office.

There is a large statue of Athena outside too, which I have been meaning to get some pictures posted of.

Madeleine Albrecht thought about running for President of Czech a few years ago. Henry's from Germany.
WARREN Christopher, that's way down the rabbit hole.

Wow. Your own little Bildeburg Conference. Secretarys of State always seem like big illumi-no-no conduits for me.

James Baker is a prime example.

Dark things afoot in your neck of the woods, my friend. Keep us posted.

God, what a nauseating bunch. I'm pretty close to tuning the elections out entirely. I've transcended cynicism and ended up at entropy.

Well, the big wigs have left town...plenty of chemtrails late yesterday and this morning to dope everybody up before their public appearance. Least anyone thinks of getting "out of line"...

I hope to have some details ASAP!
