This isn't new but I hadn't read the book, and had not heard this before, and it's shocking. Keep in mind that President George Bush, a Republican, was president then. Although they did not move as quickly as they had planned, according to General Clark, or in the exact same order, you can see that the same agenda was followed when we elected President Barack Obama, a Democrat. I have spoken often about the agenda, and that is something that is so clear to me that sometimes I get frustrated when everyone else doesn't see that, with very few exceptions, it doesn't matter if we elect a Republican or a Democrat, whether we have a Republican administration and congress, a Democratic administration and congress, or a mixture. The Republican and Democrat elite are on the same team, working the same agenda. That is why they fear Donald Trump. He was the only candidate in the race who would not commit to the agenda. There's more to it than that, of course, but these countries were those that had not signed up with the World Bank.
