Speculation that the location of the Bilderberg Group's annual meeting would be chosen to coincide with this year's U.S. presidential election appears to have been accurate with the likelihood that Bilderberg will hold their confab in Chantilly, Virginia from May 31st to June 3rd.
As we reported yesterday, rumors that Haifa, Israel would be the location of the conference appear to have been misguided. The Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel, site of the Bilderberg meeting in 2002 and 2008, is fully booked from Thursday May 31st up to and including June 3rd, but has rooms available either side of those dates, suggesting almost certainly that it will be home turf for Bilderberg's crucial 2012 get-together.
"The odds were pretty high that in election year the not-so-public face of the Bormann continuity NATO P2 - otherwise know as the Bilderberg conference - would take place in the US," points out Bilderberg.org's Tony Gosling.
Bilderberg sleuth Gosling notes that the choice of location will virtually guarantee that people flying into the United States to cover the conference will be met with "what have now become the 'normal' US pre-WW3 fascist 'customs' checks."
Indeed, after last year's scenes in St. Moritz Switzerland, where Bilderberg members were directly confronted by protesters after a bizarre decision to take a 'nature walk' down the mountainside to their hotel, expect security around this year's conference to be noticeably tighter.
Although the Westfields Marriott is very likely to play host to this year's Bilderberg meeting, the group has been known in the past to book numerous hotels as a decoy to throw reporters off the scent.
