Debunkers love to claim that the Bilderberg Group is a mere talking shop and has no influence over world events, but it appears as if the secretive organization had some sway in ordering the Dutch Embassy to remove information about where they would be meeting this year from their official website.
Of course the cat is already out of the bag – the alternative media cracked the real scene of the crime this time around – Chantilly, Virginia – after it appeared Bilderberg had pulled a fast one by having Greek newspapers report that they had already met in Athens.
Despite the open knowledge that Bilderberg, which this year will welcome Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, will meet from June 5-8 at the Westfields Marriott hotel, they were seemingly uncomfortable with that information being broadcast by the Dutch Embassy, who have now deep-sixed any mention of it.

In their original press release – cached here – the statement reads, "The Prime Minister will participate in the annual Bilderberg conference, which this year will be held in Chantilly, VA."

The edited version which is currently posted omits any mention of Bilderberg.

One can speculate in assuming that the reason behind the removal of the information was to discourage mainstream media attention towards the meeting. Perhaps Bilderberg were hoping that the U.S. corporate press’ obsession with American Idol or the Obama/Clinton circus might have helped the unveiling of this year’s location to go unnoticed.
The U.S. corporate media is notorious for being the most blinkered when it comes to Bilderberg coverage, self-censoring every time the group meets in the states. You can count on one hand the number of mainstream news outlets that report on the conference – a damning indictment of the "free press" in light of the fact that over 100 power brokers are meeting in secret to plot the course of our future.
As we previously reported, there was speculation that the Dutch Embassy deliberately published the information in the first place because they were nonplussed about Bilderberg’s obsession with secrecy, but if this was the case then someone at Bilderberg cracked the whip and the Embassy duly complied.
Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker got direct confirmation over the phone from the Dutch Embassy a few days ago that Bilderberg would be meeting at the Westfields Marriott – so whereas before they were happy to provide the information, now it appears they have been told in no uncertain terms to keep it under wraps.
