GE's Russian Ties Strengthened After Obama Nixes Missile Defense

Posted: Sep 18, 2009 8:58 AM
General Electric, parent company of uber-Obama-friendly MSNBC, will benefit from President Obama's decision to nix land-based missile defense in Eastern Europe, reports DC Examiner's Tim Carney in a blog post based on a Reuter's item:
Reuters reports an interesting nugget in the wake of President Barack Obama's decision to grant Vladimir Putin his wish and kill the Eastern European missile shield:
Shortly after the pullback on the shield programme was announced, Russia's government said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin would meet several U.S. executives on Friday from firms including General Electric, Morgan Stanley  as well as TPG, one of the world's largest private equity firms.
Carney has a feature piece in the next issue of Townhall Magazine revealing the cozy connections between GE and the Obama administration. In "Government Electric," Carney exposes the many ways the Obama administration follows GE's lead, and vice versa.
