THE FOLLOWING IS ANNE WILLIAMSON’S TESTIMONY before the Committee on Banking and Financial Services of the U.S. House of Representatives, presented Sept. 21, 1999.
It shows how the historic opportunity given the U.S. to help transform Russia into a free, peaceful, pro-Western country was squandered in the form of a bruising economic rape carried out by corrupt Russian politicians and businessmen, assisted by Bush and (especially) Clinton administrations engaged in political payoffs to Wall Street bankers and others, and by ineptitude and greed on the part of the U.S. Treasury and the Harvard Institute for International Development, assisted by fellow travellers and manipulators at Nordex, the IMF, the World Bank, and the Federal Reserve.
The losers were the Russian people and (mainly) U.S. tax-payers.
And the winners? Ms. Williamson names names, and that’s why the elite media has shut out her book. She indicates their heroes are thieves, and they are afraid she may be right.
