article imageAlleged Guccifer email links Tony Blair to secret Bohemian Grove

By JohnThomas Didymus     Mar 27, 2013 in World
According to RT, the hacker Guccifer has leaked emails of the former Secretary of State Colin Powell, including one that makes a reference to the former British prime minister Tony Blair in relation to attendance at the 2012 Bohemian Grove summer retreat.
Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre (1,100 ha) campground located at 20601 Bohemian Avenue, Monte Rio, California. The San Francisco-based men's art club, the Bohemian Club, owns the campground where it holds a two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the world's most powerful men in mid-July each year.
Digital Journal reported in February that the hacker Guccifer exposed private correspondence and photos of members of the Bush family, including George H. W. Bush and his son George W. Bush, both former presidents of the US.
According to RT, Guccifer has also taken credit for hacking General Powell's Facebook account and other email correspondence about last year's Benghazi attack sent to former Secretary of State Hillary Cllnton.
The latest hacked emails RT reports it received from Guccifer include several allegedly sent to the former US Secretary of State Colin Powell's AOL account.
According to RT, the emails Guccifer forwarded to it appear to offer an insight into Gen. Powell's personal habits, but one dated March 21, 2012 referenced some well-known individuals in relation to the "Bohemian Middle Weekend."
In the alleged email, a person identified himself as "Andre Knight" asks General Powell to persuade Blair to attend that year's Bohemian Grove retreat, an annual gathering of rich and powerful men that has been the subject of speculation in connection with "Illuminati" conspiracy theories.
The purported email message from Andrew Knight to Colin Powell, according to RT, reads:
Dear Colin
You will see in the response Tony's response to George.
Might you be able gently/firmly to point out to Tony that you rank the Bohemian Middle Weekend in your diary before allowing any other duties to get in the way? Lack of exposure suggests that Tony has not yet got his priorities straight.
I am going to suggest the same to Henry.
Warm best
Andrew (Knight)
The Voice of Russia claims that "Andrew Knight" is the same as the director of billionaire Rupert Murdoch's multinational News Corp.
RT reports that the email to Powell included a PDF attachment that was unavailable to its reporter but is believed to include a response from Blair to George Schultz, former Secretary of State under US President Ronald Reagan.
The Voice of Russia identifies "Henry" in the email as Henry Kissinger, the famous Secretary of State under Presidents Nixon and Ford.
This is not the first time Blair has been rumored as attending the Bohemian Grove annual retreat. According to the Daily Mail, Blair was in San Francisco in 2006 and "there was speculation that [he] might even have been a guest at the male-only event, following in the footsteps of John Major and Prince Philip. As it is, the Shultz party was said to have been littered with guests who had left the Grove in order to meet Mr. Blair."
Although a secrecy that spawns conspiracy theory speculations surrounds membership and activities of the club, Sonoma County Free Press claims that the membership list of the Bohemian Grove has included every Republican US president since 1923, presidents and CEOs of major corporations in the defense and banking and sectors.
A few enterprising investigative journalists have infiltrated the retreat. Vanity Fair's Alex Shoumatoff was arrested trying to infiltrate the retreat in 2009.
Spy World's reporter Philip Weiss, infiltrated the grove in the summer of 1989 and spent seven days in the camp posing as a guest. In November 1989, he wrote the article "Inside Bohemian Grove" in which he claimed that attendees congregate at a shrine to an owl "40-foot-tall, moss-covered statue of stone and steel." He wrote: "You know you are inside the Bohemian Grove when you come down a trail in the woods and hear piano music from amid a group of tents and then round a bend to see a man with a beer in one hand and his penis in the other, urinating into the bushes. This is the most gloried-in ritual of the encampment, the freedom of powerful men to pee wherever they like..."
Weiss said that during the Bohemian Middle Weekend, the main session of the two-week gathering, there were about 2,200 guests, all male, on the camp ground.
