Complete list of ultra-elite attendees reported to have attended the 2010 Koch strategy meeting

Koch brothers - Charles Koch and David H. Koch

Below is  a widely-circulated list of attendees at the secret 2010 Koch strategy meeting.  According to reports, organized strategic planning began in the early 1980’s and continued through annual Koch strategy meetings with many of the richest families on earth.  The rumored purpose of these meetings: to fight what the ultra-rich perceived to be the coming-of-age of liberal policies and agendas and to plan for willing public acceptance of their goals of (1) limited government, (2) lower personal and corporate taxes, (3) minimal social services for the poor, (4) less industry oversight, (5) less costly environmental regulations.  Despite high-security, the list below leaked and was published online.
