Le Cercle is a deep state milieu which was set up around the same time as the Bilderberg, but is smaller and more secretive. It is attended especially by idealogues including spooks, deep politicians and editors. Members promote their hawkish agenda by otherwise subverting the democratic process, possibly going as far as brokering weapons deals and setting up false flag attacks. Their warmaking is also ideological - distributing propaganda to stoke fear of communism, promoting the "war on terror". The "Pinay Cercle" is an "Atlanticist" right-wing organization of serving and retired intelligence operatives, military officers and politicians that conspired to "affect" changes in government.
Founder: Antoine Pinay, Jean Violet, Otto Habsburg
