The Carlyle Group

Here is a 48 minute Dutch-produced Real Media video about the Carlyle Group (courtesy Information Clearing House), the hugely successful defense industry "buy-out" corporation with strong ties to the Bush family. The video starts out in Dutch but segues into English after about 2 minutes.

In the huge stench that encircles the Bush Presidency like a wreath, follow the money -- to Halliburtin and its subsidiaries, to the United Arab Emirates, and to the Carlyle group.

And just to be fair, their official site. "Global private equity." It sounds so genteel.
