=======================================

[Emperor's Clothes note: The following is an excerpt from a 'Baltimore Chronicle & Sentinel' article entitled, "Republican-controlled Carlyle Group poses serious Ethical Questions for Bush Presidents, but Baltimore Sun ignores it.'

The article, written by Alice Cherbonnier, deals with the world's largest private equity firm, The Carlyle Group, a company that links George Bush Sr. and the family of Osama bin Laden. ]

[START of EXCERPT]
Copyright 2001 'The Baltimore Chronicle and the SENTINEL'

"AN IMPORTANT TENET of journalism is that you should always ask, 'Who benefits?'

"In the case of a war, the answers to this question become of paramount importance. Suppose, for example, that profits from military contracting were to go in the pockets of a former U.S. President whose son (and a presumed future heir) is now President? Suppose further that such profits escalate in times of conflict. Wouldn’t this be of concern to the public? Wouldn’t you expect the media to be all over such an important ethical (not to mention moral, and maybe legal) angle?

"Though described by the Industry Standard as 'the world’s largest private equity firm,' with over $12 billion under management, chances are readers haven’t ever heard of The Carlyle Group. Isn’t that a little odd, considering it is run by a veritable who's who of former Republican political leaders. Former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci is Carlyle’s chairman and managing director (who, by the way, was college roommate of the current Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld). And that partners in this mammoth venture include former U.S. Secretary of State James A. Baker III, George Soros, Fred Malek (George H.W. Bush’s campaign manager, forced to resign when it was revealed he was Nixon’s 'Jew counter'), and 'presumably' George H.W. Bush?

"We say 'presumably' because the privately-held Carlyle doesn’t have to reveal information about its partners or investments to the SEC or to anyone else. Our former President is reported to be active in seeking investments for the Carlyle Group from the Asian market, and word is he’s paid between $80,000 to $100,000 per presentation.

"All told, Carlyle has about 420 partners all over the globe, from Saudi princes to the former president of the Philippines. Its investments run heavily in the defense sector; they make money from military conflicts and weapons spending."

Emperor's Clothes Needs Your Help!
=======================================

On 18 September about 100,000 readers transferred more than 1.7 gigabytes of data from Emperor's Clothes. That's the equivalent of around 1.5 million pages in printed books.

As you may know, the Website was "down" for about four hours that day. Because of the current crisis, we are strained beyond capacity.

We recently hired a full time computer person. He has partly finished remodeling the Website so it loads more quickly and is easier to use. We hope you find these changes useful. Now we need to complete the makeover and improve our technical facilities to meet the huge increase in demand for bandwidth.

Emperor's Clothes does not charge money for articles. We rely on donations.

Many of our readers have contributed in the past. This has allowed us to function. Now we need contributions from everyone who finds Emperor's Clothes useful so we can pay our (overworked, underpaid) computer helper and make technical improvements so that all our articles are available all the time.

Please send whatever contributions you can! $20, $50, $100, $500 or more. Every penny will be used to get articles to more people.

  • Or Mail a check to Emperor's Clothes, P.O. Box 610-321, Newton, MA 02461-0321. (USA)

  • Or make a donation by phone at the donation line, (U.S.) 617 916-1705.

Note: If you mail a donation or make one by secure server, please let us know by email at emperors1000@aol.com to make sure we receive it. Thanks!
