              The Knights Of Malta
                    By - Lee Rogers
  The secretive 2009 Bilderberg Group meeting is currently under way in Greece. The Bilderberg Group meeting is an annual event where roughly 100 to 150 of the most powerful individuals from the world of business and politics formulate their agenda. This meeting has taken place since 1954 and has received very little corporate controlled media coverage despite its obvious importance.

Last year`s attendees included people like:

current Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius,
former Chairman of Chase Manhatten Bank David Rockefeller,
former Goldman Sachs CEO and Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson,
current Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner,
current Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke,
South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford,
former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger,
Google CEO Eric Schmidt
and former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.

The entire attendee list of the 2008 Bilderberg Group meeting can be viewed here and the list contains some of the most powerful men and women in North America and Europe. Obviously, a group of people like this do not meet on an annual basis just for fun and the 2009 meeting which will take place from May 14th `“ May 17th is no exception. What`s interesting about the Bilderberg Group meeting is its origins which link back not only to European royalty but quite possibly the Knights of Malta as well.

Prince Bernhard`s role in the foundation of the Bilderberg Group is fairly well known but the man that played a much more central role in its formation was a man by the name Joseph Retinger. Retinger a Polish political adviser and Catholic was one of the early advocates of European integration and proponents of the Council of Europe. He is widely believed to have been a member of the Knights of Malta.

Sylvia Browne in her book Secret Societies -- And How They Affect Our Lives Today lists Retinger as being a member of this organization.

In Holly Sklar`s book Trilateralism the following is said of Retinger`s involvement in the formation of the Bilderberg Group.

       Bilderberg has its inception in the brilliant brain of Dr. Joseph Retinger, an extraordinary
       character who flitted through Europe talking on intimate terms with Prime Ministers,
       labour leaders, industrial magnates, revolutionaries and intellectuals `“ `“ in short all the
       non-Communist rules and would-be rules of the free nations of Europe.

The book also describes Retinger`s involvement with individuals like John Foster Dulles and W. Averell Harriman as well as other high profile individuals who have long been associated with moving the global government agenda forward.

Retinger is considered to be the brains behind the formation of the Bilderberg Group where as Prince Bernhard played more of a figure head role serving as its first chairman. It is interesting to see how a man who is widely believed to have been a member of the Knights of Malta was actually behind the creation of this group. Much of the alternative media places a focus on Prince Bernhard when tracing back to the group`s origins. This is despite the fact that Retinger played a much more central role in the creation of this group relative to Prince Bernhard.

Considering Retinger`s principle role in the foundation of Bilderberg, the possibility of his involvement with the Knights of Malta is a very interesting topic of conversation. Many researchers believe that the Bilderberg Group is the most powerful of them all. If Retinger`s involvement in the Knights of Malta is true and there`s a lot of information to believe that it is, this raises serious questions about the Bilderberg Group truly being at the top of any proposed pyramidal control structure.

There is little question that the Bilderberg Group is powerful, but if a member of the Knights of Malta was its primary founder, wouldn`t the Knights of Malta and the Vatican arguably be far more powerful? One has to ask the question as to why Retinger`s involvement in the creation of the Bilderberg Group isn`t more widely discussed and scrutinized by people in the alternative research community.
