The Education of Mark Zuckerberg
For Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's public offering is a turning point. It is the deal that will either prove once and for all that the company is changing just about everything, or that the mania over social media is spiraling out of control....

Mind-boggling figures aside, the question on many minds is this: Is Mr. Zuckerberg really ready for this? Is he — there’s no sugarcoating it — grown up enough to lead a public corporation that is more valuable than McDonald’s or Goldman Sachs? The answer to those questions will determine the future of Facebook, as well as the fortunes of its new, public shareholders. For the first time, Mr. Zuckerberg will be judged, in real time, by a relentless stock market. And that market, as C.E.O.’s everywhere know, is merciless.

“You’re making a bet, and the bet is always on ‘Can the founder go somewhere?’ ” Reid Hoffman, a co-founder of LinkedIn, an adviser to Mr. Zuckerberg and an early financial backer of Facebook, said in an earlier interview. “And Zuck’s done great.”

It’s hard to argue. The question, however, is where Mr. Zuckerberg goes from here as a chief executive. He declined to be interviewed for this article, but interviews with dozens of venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, as well as with Facebook colleagues and outsiders who have mentored him along his climb, paint a promising picture. Beneath that hoodie, these people say, is an increasingly assured leader, one tempered by failures — and there have been some big ones — as well as astonishing successes.

Friends and colleagues agree that Mr. Zuckerberg’s goal is be a C.E.O. for the long haul. Like a software engineer writing a program, he has tried to fill in the gaps in his personal code, and to ensure, as a programmer might put it, that his code doesn’t break.

Even now, with a multibillion-dollar brass ring at hand, Mr. Zuckerberg remains intensely aware of his limitations, these people say. Where he is strong — in product design and strategy — he tends to micromanage. Where he is weak — day-to-day management, operations — he hires people with a defter touch. He has enlisted top engineers and managers, including the formidable Ms. Sandberg, 42. Friends and colleagues say she has coached the often-awkward Mr. Zuckerberg on how to interact with employees and to build Facebook’s business.

But Mr. Zuckerberg has also invested in a personal brain trust beyond Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. He cultivated as advisers such tech giants as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, as well as others as varied as Marc Andreessen, the co-founder of Netscape, and Donald E. Graham, the chairman and chief executive of the Washington Post Company....

One who won't be there is Frank Pearl who died several weeks ago as announced by associate Vernon Jordan. A Democrat Party power broker, the low-key Pearl brought James A. Johnson and the late Holbrooke into his Perseus LLC.

Pearl was a board member of Peter G. Peterson's Institute for International Economics along with over a dozen Bilderbergers and Trilateralists.

Put this book together with Bavarian Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands and you have it

Hitler's deputy Martin Bormann created over 700 companies in which to invest the laundered Nazi loot - many of the directors of those companies will be here at Bilderberg.

FTR #305 The Bormann Organization
Orig­i­nally recorded in June of 1997, this pro­gram sets forth the basic facts con­cern­ing the gen­e­sis and func­tion­ing of the remark­able and deadly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, named for Reich­sleiter Mar­tin Bor­mann. (This site con­tains exten­sive mate­r­ial doc­u­ment­ing the pro­found con­nec­tions between the Bush fam­ily, the admin­is­tra­tion of George W. Bush, and the Bor­mann organization.)

Martin Bormann — Nazi in Exile
Posted July 17, 2006
by Paul Man­ning 1980, Lyle Stu­art, Inc.
ISBN 0–8184-0309–8
Illus­trated, 302 pages.

In late 2005, Amer­i­can pop­u­lar cul­ture paid homage to one of the great­est jour­nal­ists of all time. In “Good­night and Good Luck,” the life and work of CBS radio and tele­vi­sion jour­nal­ist Edward R. Mur­row pro­vided the mate­r­ial for a Hol­ly­wood fea­ture film. Paul Man­ning was arguably the great­est of “Murrow’s Boys”—the group of skilled jour­nal­ists Mur­row ran in Europe dur­ing World War II. After train­ing as a gun­ner and fly­ing com­bat mis­sions in both Europe and over Japan, Man­ning broad­cast the sur­ren­ders of both Ger­many and Japan on the CBS radio net­work. After the war, Man­ning under­took an inves­ti­ga­tion of Hitler’s Deputy, Mar­tin Bor­mann, and the post­war cap­i­tal net­work he ran. Par­tially under­writ­ten by CBS, the story of the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion proved too sen­si­tive for the net­work to report.

A deci­sively pow­er­ful net­work of cor­po­rate enti­ties run by hard­ened SS vet­er­ans, the Bor­mann group con­sti­tutes what one vet­eran banker termed “the great­est con­cen­tra­tion of money power under a sin­gle con­trol in his­tory.” The foun­da­tion of the organization’s clout is money—lots and lots of money. Con­trol­ling Ger­man big busi­ness and, through invest­ments, much of the rest of the world’s econ­omy, the orga­ni­za­tion was the repos­i­tory for the stolen wealth of Europe, esti­mated by British intel­li­gence to have totaled more than $180 bil­lion by the end of 1943 (not includ­ing the money taken from Greece and the for­mer Soviet Union, nor that taken after 1943.) [For more on the global eco­nomic sig­nif­i­cance of the Bor­mann group, see—among other programs—FTR#99.] This orga­ni­za­tion lit­er­ally con­sti­tutes a post­war “Under­ground Reich” with (as dis­cussed in FTR#155) a gov­ern­ing hier­ar­chy com­posed of the sons and daugh­ters of SS men, hold­ing mil­i­tary ranks and titles from the Third Reich.

In addi­tion to the enor­mous power deriv­ing from its con­sum­mate eco­nomic clout, the Bor­mann group has wielded tremen­dous global influ­ence through its intel­li­gence and enforce­ment net­work. Admin­is­tered by SS gen­eral Hein­rich Mueller, the wartime head of the Gestapo, the Bor­mann group’s intel­li­gence and secu­rity net­work was com­posed of some of the tough­est, most capa­ble vet­er­ans of the SS. In addi­tion, the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion and Mueller’s secu­rity out­fit have com­manded the loy­alty of the polit­i­cal, intel­li­gence and mil­i­tary ele­ments req­ui­si­tioned by the Allies after the war. In that regard, the Bormann/Mueller oper­a­tion could draw on the loy­al­ties of the Rein­hard Gehlen spy out­fit that han­dled the CIA’s intel­li­gence on the for­mer Soviet Union and which ulti­mately became the intel­li­gence ser­vice of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Ger­many. In addi­tion, Bor­mann and Mueller were the polit­i­cal mas­ters of the numer­ous sci­en­tists recruited by the U.S. and other nations for their exper­tise dur­ing the Cold War, as well as the numer­ous Nazis brought into the U.S. under the aus­pices of the Cru­sade For Free­dom. Those lat­ter ulti­mately coa­lesced into a major ele­ment of the Repub­li­can Party. (For more about the Cru­sade for Free­dom, see—among other programs—FTR#465.)

With its eco­nomic, polit­i­cal and espi­onage capa­bil­i­ties, the Bor­mann group embod­ies the tri­umph of the forces of National Social­ism in the post­war period. Whereas the United States was the dom­i­nant ele­ment within the inter­na­tional car­tel sys­tem prior to, and dur­ing, World War II, the Bor­mann group is the pri­mary entity in the post­war global cor­po­rate economy.

The organization’s clout has suc­cess­fully obscured its exis­tence in the face of jour­nal­is­tic inves­ti­ga­tion. Com­pare the “offi­cial” fate of Bor­mann (sup­pos­edly killed at the end of the war) with demon­stra­ble his­tor­i­cal fact, as researched by Man­ning. Relat­ing infor­ma­tion from the FBI’s file on Bor­mann, Man­ning writes: “ . . .The file revealed that he had been bank­ing under his own name from his office in Ger­many in Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires since 1941; that he held one joint account with the Argen­tin­ian dic­ta­tor Juan Peron, and on August 4, 5 and 14, 1967, had writ­ten checks on demand accounts in first National City Bank (Over­seas Divi­sion) of New York, The Chase Man­hat­tan Bank, and Man­u­fac­tur­ers Hanover Trust Co., all cleared through Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires. . . .”
(Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile, p. 205.)

FTR#305 is a con­den­sa­tion of some of the key seg­ments of text from Manning’s land­mark book. The story of the active sup­pres­sion of Manning’s work on Bor­mann is con­tained in FTR#152 (side A). The mov­ing tale of Manning’s heroic, decades-long inves­ti­ga­tion into the Bor­mann group is con­tained in a pro­fes­sional biog­ra­phy of Paul Man­ning that accom­pa­nies the text. That pro­fes­sional biog­ra­phy also recounts the pro­fes­sional ret­ri­bu­tion to which Man­ning was sub­jected in retal­i­a­tion for his work (includ­ing the 1993 mur­der of his son Gerry.)

Read­ers inter­ested the Man­ning text on Bor­mann should also inves­ti­gate Gold War­riors by the Seagraves—the story of Japan’s post­war cap­i­tal net­work and its pro­found rela­tion­ship with the global economy.
