Nearly 140 powerful men and women met in secret over the past weekend to attend the annual Bilderberg Convention, also known as the "Group of the Powerful", in Chantilly, Virginia. Among them was Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg.
Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek has yet to comment on Schwarzenberg’s visit. Communist leader Vojtech Filip said, "I learnt about it today (on Sunday) and I was furious."
Guests at the convention included World Band President Robert Zoellick, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and businessman David Rockefeller. Bilderberg is an invite-only organization of businessmen, politicians and military representatives.
