A dirty background

New York Federal Reserve president Timothy Geithner has been selected to become US Treasury Secretary amid the global financial crisis.

The man’s background (largely ignored by the mainstream media here in the US, still in thrall to Obama’s “post-partisanship” postures)?

Between 1986 and 1989, U.S. Treasury Secretary Designate Timothy Geithner was employed at Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, and Lawrence Eagleburger’s Kissinger Associates influence-peddling firm, which also employed George W. Bush’s former special envoy to Iraq, L. Paul Bremer, during the early 1990s. A leading candidate for Commerce Secretary, Bill Richardson, also is a former employee of Kissinger Associates.
