I haven't tried to watch this particular video yet, but your computer might have something like windows media player as its default. If you have real player, try opening it first and then downloading the file.

The language is Dutch, the documentary was aired on Dutch public television in may 2003.

Translation of the first one minute forty seven seconds of this program.

"The war in Iraq does not seem to be over al all, but in the meantime the rebuilding has already started. This has unleashed fiercecompetition for contracts, which are mainly awarded to American (ed: U.S.) companies.

What is remarkable about these companies, is that they have people on their payroll from American politics and the military. Is this a conflict of interest, or is this the new global way of doing business?

[text in the screen at this time reads: 'the iron triangle']

One of the companies that operates in this manner is the Carlyle Group."

On their payroll are people like : George Bush (Sr.), James Baker III and old premier John Major.

The Carlyle Group is a private investment bank which doesn't come to the publics attention very often but it is one of the biggest American (ed: USA) investors of the defense industry, telecom, property and financial services.

Your movie will neither play(with Real Player 10) nor download on a Mac (OSX).

Hey, Mac dude. Sorry to hear you encountered problems with the film. I didn't, but I happen to know why you did:

I have been (shoudl say was) an adamant Mac user since the first time I touched one in a UT library, 1985. Before that, I had been a tech for army, back when the only OS was UNIX 360. The Mac was glorious. Ended up, in the next ten years, as a subcontractor for SR technology with Mac.

All this came to an end when I bought my first (last) Titanium G4 Powerbook, and discovered it would only boot with Mac OSX. I tried the OS, like all those who came before it (6x, 7.0, 7.1, 7.5x, 7.6x, 8x and 9x). But this OSX was not something I could ever love OR tolerate. The worst was the fact that it would not accept any of my PCMCIA cards from my PB3400 and PB1400 models. No SCSI interface, for all my tons of hardware. Could not even write a file to external media that would not screw up my other computers AND hard drives with 500,000 invisible files (.DS_store, VolumeSettingsFolder, FindByContentFolder, etc). Then I discovered the Firewire port, although it said "800mb/s, would only do that with an APPLE device, not compliant with any PC firewire device above 400mp/s, and my USB ports were the same, claiming to be 2.0, yet unable to negotiate with ANYTHING that I plugged in above USB 1.1 protocol. Then, the last straw was the fact that I had bought the damned thing to use as an editor for a DVDRamCam a client bought me to make a documentary of a trip from Nepal to Indonesia. The laptop would not mount the CDs -in the tray or in the camera! No mini-CDs could be inserted, anyway....

I had to write my own modules and extensions to get it to boot OS9, and finally succeeded (in a separate partition). Got it to recognize my SCSI pcmcia card and all my other peripherals -on OS9. But OS 9 did not grasp the power reg system or the screen backlight, so it could never spin down the HD, sleep, or even shut off the screen. I am no dummy, I made the first fully-autonomous AI/speaking robot that hosted a TV show, but I could NOT make this laptop useful no matter how hard I tried.

Finally, when we reached Vietnam, I was so p****d off, I tossed the useless overpriced GUCCI-BAG into China Beach. I am sure the fish hate me for that, but it felt good to dispose of the worthless junk, with "extreme prejudice".

When I reached Singapore, I bought a "Prestigio" laptop, 2.4ghz, 80mb HD, 1gb RAM, firewire (real 800mb/s and USB2.0) for 546 bucks (and got tax back when I left). Now I have Mepis Linux, and Win98SE, Win2K and WinXP (all on separate partitions). Ther is no hardware I cannot recognize without ANY drivers, and there are no Real Audio files I can no longer (the Guccii-Bag Laptop wouldn't open MOST video formats anyway).

Now that the GUCCI-BAG manufacturer is not only restricting users to OSX (the slowest and sloppiest OS on the planet, EVEN worse than XP), and plans to use INTEL processors (the ones that cannot add), what advantage is left? None. They can't even make an iPod that survives a trip into the pocket. I quit "Mac" evangelizing last November, and I have never been so happy. I suggest you do the same. Then you can use USB 2.0, and watch this .RM movie (which plays great on Mepis, by the way)

regards,
danasaur

Thanks for the link to this video. Nice to get a deeper understanding of this secretive company. Shame they'll probably never be brought to justice for influencing US foreign policies in favour of war for profit and imperialism.

The Carlyle Group, Bechtel, and Halliburton are the real enemies of America, unless you are in the upper 2% of income, which owns more and more of the US worth.
Bechtel is in even deeper cahoots with the administration, but you hear less about Bechtel Than Halliburton, and even less about Carlyle - the odor is VERY strong and unpleasant.

Cheney, Rumsfeld - re-treaded Nixon underlings - the previous depth of American democracy.

From Katrina to porous borders, to the bogus case for Iraq, to the illegal wiretapping, to the Medicare drug company give-away, to the Oil company give-away "energy policy", to tax cuts for the rich, to the demeaning of science (evolution, global warming), to the alienation of most of the world, to the largest deficit in history, this regime is the worst in 50 years.

Seems the Carlyle Group would've bought someone better...

They don't even hide the strings any more - it's blatant.

The first part:

The war in Iraq is over. The destruction is still smoking, but the first bulldozers are pulling in to the country.

My Dutch is too rusty to translate the next line.

I hope everyone who can burn this onto a DVD will hold viewing parties.

Good post above. "....this regime is the worst in 50 years."

try 100 years.

Can't find the video here anymore - going to to a google video search.

Cheers.

Very important topic this.

Sorry, I won't load proprietary software like Real Player on my system. Why do you have to foist this junk at us just to see the video? Try Winamp or other open video players if you want to get your message out.

Where can this video be downloaded? The torrent available from indybay just won't work; nobody's seeding!

I would prefer the better quality version, since I think there's a 30-something megabyte version and a 67MB version.

Thanks...

Carlye Group! The absolute worst kind of (business) interest for America! Now and, in the future! If this is capitalism, then America truly is most definetely, participating in the wrong type of business!!
How can any government official, in good conscience and, upon leaving office, participate with a firm strictly for their knowledge of confidential inforamtion and,, for profit! It's anti-American! Doing this, while knowing the inner most secrets of our American Government, is criminal! It defies every morale and ethical standard and value that any average American would understand. Knowing it's sacred to democracy! And, yet our most prestigious government officials, see or, had no problem or indifference on doing just that! Betraying Americas most sensitive secrets inner workings,,, all for profit!! Its treasonist and should be made public! Why isn't the media mentioning this??

I work at Lowe's Home Improvment. I'm am not allowed to sell to my family or myself. Why? Because it is a conflict of intrest.

Why is the President of the United States able to invest in a company that makes money from the country where he makes the disitions? Isn't that a conflict of intrest?

Instead of changing the US Consitution to define the meaning of marriage, lets add in a person holding a position in office can not invest in The Carlyle Group or any company that makes money from a war.

After more than eight-years searching for a group not afraid of posting Truth, I am truly happy to submit I have found such a group. True, fellow Americans, the video is produced in both Danish and English. But if you are as interested in knowing Truth, don't be put back because of our cool friends in de Netherlands. Having lived in Amsterdam, I have grown to trust them without question. Remember, the Danes helped us win the war against the invading Nazis!!! Read your history books, then decide.

The video (not to my surprise) is gone. If there is anyone out there that has another link, please post.

Is there a group for people like you and I who have opinions and would like to make a difference?

Hey smarty pants x-mac user. I just watched the video in its' entirety without a hitch or a glitch on my MacBook Pro. I don't even recall having downloaded Real Player but there it was. Wouldn't it have been just as effective to tell the concerned blogger that you had experienced some difficulties and to beware. Most of us lay people don't know what you are talking about nor are we impressed. Your verbosity is loathe some.
Hope your tangled PC programs don't crash.
The real point here however is the Carlyle Group. I would dare say electing Hillary Clinton with Bill's involvement with the elder Bush is most definitely a conflict of interest. I think I will stick with a candidate who seems less tangled.

The average American doesn't know, and for that matter wish to know just how ruthless and corrupt the inter workings of the government system truly is. This is not to suggest that all elected officials are, because their not. It's only a select few, the ones who operate in secret, ones taking oaths to their brotherhood, such as Skull & Bones not to reveal their true intentions of where the power brokers want to take this country.Other groups, like the Bilderburgs, who hold secret meetings. These consist of some of the worlds most powerful people who hold office in this government. Let the truth be known, there would be a revolt, an up rising the likes of which this country has never seen before. Ask yourself this simple question, why has this nation become more like a police state, just within the past ten years or so?Why has the freedoms been clamped down upon? What action did it take in order for the government to put these tools in place, such as Wire tapping without a warrant,police being allowed to enter a persons home and search without the home owners even being made aware that such a search was conducted! Any citizen can now be picked up off the street and held indefinitely without any charges brought forth, denied the right of council. All this after 9/11. Were told it's because were fighting terrorism See who's making all the money off this war in Iraq. Look how many military bases have been constructed in Iraq. Did you know that the US Armed Forces now serve at the pleasure of the United nations? What's going on here! I was led to believe that when an American Citizen put on the uniform that it was to protect this country from invasion, to protect and defend our constitution, not act as a police action. Why is all this happening, and why now more than ever? Did you happen to see McCain and Senator Leberman over in Iraq together last week?Then McCain in Israel wearing the yamaca at the Wailing Wall! Going along with that, did you hear McCain this week in a speech say that we must protect Israel and attack Iran? perhaps not in those exact words, but there was no mistaking that's what he meant. Why is it that so many of our elected officials hold dual citizenship, here and Israel? Who's interest will they support, the interest of this country and the American people, or Israels and their people? Why, if their American Citizens do they need to also be citizens of another country, it just doesn't make any sense to me, and there is nothing that anyone could say to try to make sense of it. Somethings wrong here.
