INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mitch Daniels was to come home Friday from an appearance at the little-known and somewhat mysterious Bilderberg Meeting.
Daniels spoke on a panel at the event in Chantilly, Va., but neither the governor’s office nor Bilderberg would say what the panel was about. The conference started Thursday and will continue though Sunday.
The Bilderberg Meetings have a long history. The first meeting was put together by many European and American leaders who expressed concerns about relations between the U.S. and western Europe. The Bilderberg Meetings are so called because the first one took place at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands in May of 1954.
The goal of the meeting is to encourage dialog among U.S. and European leaders in an informal, off-the-record environment. The meeting this year will cover topics as diverse as energy, cyber security and the future of democracy.
