Abstract:

"In The Iron Triangle: Inside the Secret World of the Carlyle Group, award-winning business journalist Dan Briody closely examines the dealings of this group and explores the high-powered individuals who make up a company which is enigmatically self-described as "a vast interlocking global network." You'll go inside the Carlyle Group and watch how deals are made and governments swayed to accept the Carlyle way."

"Witness how the Carlyle Group: profited from the September 11[superscript th] terrorist attacks and continues to profit from the ongoing war on terrorism, pried open the wallets of Saudi Arabia and South Korea through the whirlwind business trips of former President George Bush, liquidated holdings from the estranged family of Osama bin Laden only after news reports revealed the company's association with the family, went into overdrive to save the outdated Crusader howitzer which was being built by United Defense - a Carlyle company, was born through the Great Eskimo Tax Scam - a tax loophole used by cofounders Stephen Norris and David Rubenstein that has since been sewn up, and found what would become their identity - defense contracting - with the help of former Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci."--Jacket.
