Refugees Flock To Dadaab As Famine Grips Somalia

DADAAB, KENYA - JULY 24: Somali refugee children sit in their makeshift hut on the edge of the Hagadera refugee camp which makes up part of the giant Dadaab refugee settlement on July 24, 2011 in Dadaab, Kenya. The refugee camp at Dadaab, located close to the Kenyan border with Somalia, was originally designed in the early 1990s to accommodate 90,000 people but the UN estimates over 4 times as many reside there. The ongoing civil war in Somalia and the worst drought to affect the Horn of Africa in six decades has resulted in an estimated 12 million people whose lives are threatened.

Inside the world's most secretive conference

An arena for thoughtful debate surrounding pressing international issues, or a "cesspit of globalist turds?"

Each year, around 150 of the world's most powerful financiers, businesspeople, politicians and thinkers meet behind tightly closed doors for the Bilderberg conference, a series of discussions on "megatrends and the major issues facing the world." What exactly goes on behind the security checkpoints among the gathered elites of Western society remains somewhat of a mystery as the meetings remain strictly off-the-record.

The first conference was held in the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands in May 1954, to ease European-American relations during the Cold War.
