Shadow Of A Doubt - The Triangular Institution Of Family Part 1

Regarded by Alfred Hitchcock as his personal favorite, of all the movies he directed, the 1943 thriller "Shadow Of A Doubt" brings to a loving family an unsuspected menace.

Deep within the halls and corridors of whispered thoughts and intentions a family is punctured with the notion that a deeply loved member, (beloved Uncle Charlie, played by Joseph Cotten) is involved in some unscrupulous activities. The discovery of these activities is revealed to his loving niece named after him, (Charlie, played by Teresa Wright). Their Uncle-Niece relation transcends a deep all-loving affinity, almost spiritual in a sense, almost as one. And it is this affinity through which Uncle Charlie's activities are revealed. And it's these, extracurricular activities, which formulates the following topics into a unique triangular intent.

The unscrupulous activities from yesterdays whispered intentions at the End of The Cold War to today's full itinerary towards the Global Security agenda is the theme. Also in this theme, is how great and vast their unpublicized and heavily sponsored pursuits have been made especially through diplomacy. You see, some of our family members, even our favorite Uncle are on a specific target, set for a specific time line. I believe we all should take a closer look at some familiar and not so familiar family members whose past, present and future activities may surprise you. Indeed these exhaustive references and sources should be taking in with one breath at a time.

Remember, although we may have never had a family member involved in questionable pursuits it does not mean it cannot happen or immunity is applied. Indeed, when family members activities involve the life and well-being of others, especially without yours or mine consent, those whispered thoughts and intentions have the very possibility of being extremely dangerous and should be passed along to others for deeper scrutiny. After all, a families true trust and true accountability cannot happen under someone's breath or behind closed doors, as it is heading at the same time towards the open arms of a families true love.

Personally, for the past several weeks it's been very very hard and unsettling to sit on this research. At times, I even found myself torn, just as Teresa Wrights character was torn in regards to the new information about her favorite loving Uncle, in whether or not I should reveal this information at all because of the hurt and offense other family members would feel. Yet this was never my intent to hurt or offend any family member, it’s just that the facts are there. But through much prayer I now know its time to share this with you and to let you decide for yourself.

So this is where we depart into some unknown territory, into unknown intentions, into the unknown and without a Shadow of A Doubt, these are The Triangular Institutions of Family.

Brookings Institution 2007 Annual Report,

8th Annual Herzliya Conference & The Grand New NATO Proposal

Part 1


Brookings 2007 Annual Report

In Concert With A Cast of Hundreds That Publicly Went Global in 2007

Everybody's favorite Uncle Charlie breaks bread with the family and shares a little over dinner.
Taken from "Shadow Of A Doubt", 1943.

Mission Statement:

>Strengthen American democracy.

>Advance the economic and social welfare, security, and opportunity of all Americans.

>Secure a more open, safe, prosperous, and cooperative international system.

Brookings 2007 Annual Report brings an interesting collage of players in front and behind the scenes. Preparing itself to give advice to the next U.S. President, the annual report gives us an interesting perspective on think tanks.

On page 7., we can see a picture of Nathaniel Rothschild of the Brookings International Advisory Council sitting in on a meeting.

With his families LCF Rothschild Group and the Rothschild International Polar Foundation unique interest in Global Climate Change, this Harvard expert and possible next Baron Rothschild at Brookings adds an Economical Global Perspective.

On page 23, Brookings went Global with permanent new centers in Beijing, China and in Doha, the capital city of Qatar. For the first time in their history they are expanding Globally. Recently, Madeline Albright spoke in Doha "Towards True Dialogue".

Brookings non-profit organization broke sponsorship records in 2007 as noted on page 29 and viewed in detail on page 34. One particular sponsor, The Rockefeller Brothers Fund graciously gave to familiar groups such as The Consensus Building Institute, Search For Common Ground which includes their News Service, The Elijah Interfaith Institute and the U.N. AoC Abraham Path Initiative which can also be found here at this SFCG Abraham Path Initiative news article.

A division in American faith on page 16 was briefly mentioned in regards to religious life and public policy. E.J. Dionne , whose book Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith and Politics After the Religious Right gives an interesting Brookings Christian interview at The Washington Post.

For our friends up north, on page 27 The Great Lakes Economic Initiative should be of interest this year in 2008.

Our favorite Uncle, Javier Solana, is noted as Changing The International Political Landscape on page 20.

Overall the Brookings 2007 Annual Report Mission Statement, as brief as it is, understates its past influence in International Systems. Outside of the 2007 Annual Report, of particular international interest is in the Middle East.

Thumbing through their annual, on page 12, the Brookings Middle East Youth Initiative sets to reach out to Israeli and Palestinian Youth. But the interest in the Middle East, particularly Israel, goes much deeper.

In a February 1, 2005 Brookings article entitled, “Fateful Triangle: The United States, Europe and The Middle East”, concerns over Transatlantic relations in The Middle East is addressed.

As matter of fact, a few days later in Haifi, we find a VIDEO conference series over Israel’s National Security and Foreign Policy where Brookings is inside the Triangular Dimension, from an American Perspective. This Gold Nugget of lengthy videos reveals a very unique and shared interest from several Europe, Israel, U.S. and even Czech Republic Ambassador Michael Zantovsky perspectives.

In actuality, Trans-Atlanticism, in the 21st Century, has been on the agenda at least since the end of the Cold War. Czech Amabssador Michael ZantovskY, in May of 1997, before the July
NATO Madrid Summit, was found Rethinking Atlantic Security And Economics at “The Congress of Phoenix” along side Margaret Thatcher, Paul Wolfowitz and Arizona Senator Jon L. Kyl. The expansion of NATO, security concerns and the future of the alliance were the main topics.

But the stability, security and transformation of the Trans-Atlantic Triangle did not end in Phoenix nor Haifi. In 2008, one if it’s speakers will find him self staying up late for a brief discussion at Israel’s most beautiful resort town, important electronics center, and now leading non-governmental National Security Policy Center in Israel, The Herzliya Conference.

As Brother Herb would say, "Stay Tuned!"

Breakfast in bed for our "Favorite Uncle".
Taken from "Shadow Of A Doubt" 1943.

Hi Johnny,
I doubt that anyone could better summarize the undeniable evidence included in the Brookings Report. Two statements you made in your analysis in my opinion, hit the nail on the head.
#1: "Brookings 2007 Annual Report brings an interesting collage of players in front and behind the scenes. Preparing it self to give advice to the next U.S. President, the annual report gives us an interesting perspective on think tanks."
#2: "Overall the Brookings 2007 Annual Report Mission Statement, as brief as it is, understates its past influence in International Systems."

I noticed that in the opening remarks by it's President Strobe Talbott,the first person he mentions is George Marshall. This only adds more significance to the
current strategies and "big names" behind "The Global Marshall Plan". Those in front and behind the scenes aren't playin'. -Rudi
