Fabulous research, Fedora!! Wow. Just wow. What an intense collection of intersecting roles and players for the loony left, leading right into the "bed" of WaPo's darling reporter, Dana Priest...... who just happens to win prizes for trashing America's security in the pages of WaPo.
This information needs wide circulation - are you sending this to various reporters and websites that might pay some attention?
Information is available and likely to be used when it cane be easily seen, and can be investigated in layers. Your work, though valuable, is inpenetrable. This cries out for two executive summaries: one in chart form, the other in the form of a SINGLE page, with links included.
P.S. Interested in a Freeper in Congress? Keep in touch with me.
Amazing list of rats Fedora. Thanks for posting. ;o)
Have you considered sending this to David Horowitz at Front Page? He understand the breadth and depth of what's going on.
Impenetrable might be a great word to describe the left's invisible grip...it's a horrible word to describe this great research though.
Amazing work bump.
Outstanding research with detailed revelation of the enemy within.
I used to consider these people half nuts. I see I was wrong by half and they are fully insane.
Fedora, you're work represents the best of Free Republic and your research is invaluable. You might want to send this to David Horowitz; he maintains a web site that keeps track of relationships and connections.
self ping for later.
Thank you Fedora...while our servicemen are abroad, defending America from its foreign enemies, you here are defending us from domestic enemies..Happy Fourth!!
Many thanks for putting in the Herculean intellectual effort to produce this informative piece.
Do you have all your previous FR research threads that you made marked? I would strongly request that you mark them on your FR profile page or your bookmark links.
I know I've missed reading a few of them.
And THANK YOU for all this work.
Are you familiar with the book: Covert Cadre: Inside the Institute for Policy Studies, S Steven Powell, 1987?
It has an introduction by David Horowitz, and is hair-raising reading.
These people are pro-communism and the fall of the Soviet Union has not dampened their devotion to their cause.
From the chapter titled LOBBYING:
The Center for International Policy (CIP) was formed in 1975 by Lindsay Mattison, with Orlando Letelier's help, as another "human rights" research/lobbying organization. Like the IPA spinoff Center for National Security Studies, which focused on the intelligence agencies, CIP operates under the aegis of the Fund for Peace, with support from the Rubin Foundation, the Ruth Mott Fund, and the Stern Fund. Donald Ranard, a disaffected State Department official and friend of Orlando Letelier, is CIP's director and William Goodfellow its deputy director. Susan Weber, an early staff member, was previously registered under the Foreign Agents Registtration Act as an employee of the Soviet embassy to copyedit Soviet Life.
CIP has focused much of its effort on stopping financial institutions, like the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, from aiding Latin American countries friendly to the United States.
Although CIP's energies are not exclusively spent on Latin America, it is an important part of the Latin network. CIP's prospectus says that "the Center has been informing the press, the public, and members of Congress about the implication of U S foreign policy towards developing countries with special emphasis on the relationship of U S economic and military assistance to the status of human rights...."
A theme CIP frequently plays is that Latin America's problems are really the fault of the United States. For instance, the introduction to William Biddle's CIP paper on Nicaragua states that "basic U S interests are more threatened by the customary American response to radical governments than by the governments themselves." Likewise, on the Grenadan crisis, CIP fellow W Frick Curry wrote, "In the final analysis, the greatest threat to American citizens was caused by violence precipitated by the [U S] invasion itself." Despite its overt bias, CIP avers that"the press corps and Congressional leaders and staffs have found the Center's bimonthly International Policy Report useful in getting a fresh look at the problems of aid and repression." pp 236-237
All punctuation is in the book, and all quotes are endnoted.
The tentacles of these organizations have had thirty years to entwine themselves firmly in every government agency. Every time they fail to cripple President Bush, they do something even more radical. We have to train ourselves to prepare for more "asymmetric warfare" from the Left.

WOW! Outstanding work. Thank you.
