A veteran hill staffer who worked for decades on defense appropriations issues, Winslow T. Wheeler is now director of the Straus Military Reform Project at the Center for Defense Information in Washington, DC.
The Center for Defense Information (make sure your pop up blockers are on and virus protection is up to date) has this history:
Formed in 1973 as a project of the tax-exempt Fund for Peace(FFP). CDI and its sister FFP projects - the Center for National Security Studies(CNSS) and the Center for International Policy(CIP) - are spin-offs from projects initiated by the Institute for Policy Studies(IPS), the Washington-based , internationally active revolutionary think-tank. CDI director Gene R. LaRoque has worked closely with IPS cofounder Richard Barnet, and longtime IPS fellow Earl C. Ravenal as a CDI advisor.
Taken from Biographical Sketches of the Left. It's a bit out of date, but most of the players are still there, they've just reorganized and renamed the parts.
Further searching turned up the World Security Institute of which the CDI is a division. Take a look at their Board of Advisors and decide how to weight anything they publish.
