George H. W. Bush and Dick Cheney are in the list of CFR notable historical members.

Colin Powell is a director.

Big banks, big media, and big oil are corporate members.

Alan Greenspan also in the list of historical members.

Paul Warburg, founder of the US Federal Reserve system, is mentioned in the think tank history.

Council on Foreign Relations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Their think tank agenda and the West agenda are the same. Just a coincidence?

The CFR is pro-globalization, pro-immigration, pro-war on terrorism...etc.

Foreign Affairs - A Battle for Global Values - Tony Blair
What Follows American Dominion? - Council on Foreign Relations

A nonpartisan think tank with former CIA agents, bankers, oil & media executives, US officials and Western European politicians like Tony Blair?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Russian leaders are pocketing enormous amounts of money pretending to "save" Russia, Western leaders are doing the same, pretending to "save" the world. So altruistic and generous, people you can really trust.

Foreign Affairs is the world's leading journal on international affairs, read by statesmen and diplomats and with an illustrious 80-year history.
Published by the CFR.

Russia accuses US journal of censorship | World news | The Guardian
Quote:
Russia's foreign ministry said Mr Lavrov had offered a piece to the magazine in May in response to an article written by the Ukrainian opposition leader, Yulia Timoshenko. Instead of welcoming it, however, editors at the magazine chopped Mr Lavrov's piece by "40%", the foreign ministry said, "losing a considerable part of its original meaning". They also insisted on adding a subtitle: "Averting a new cold war". The editors made other "utterly artificial and unacceptable demands", the ministry said, and demanded further editorial changes that suggested Mr Lavrov supported the Bush administration's foreign policy when he did not.
Tony Blair pro-war on terrorism essay, and the Foreign Affairs censorship scandal appeared last year in 2007, four years after the invasion of Iraq.

Ah, the Russians and US are using the CFR to pretend to be in a conflict.

I'm sure the Ukraine and Georgia would be offended.

Politics is politics, but Foreign Affairs still publishes some of the best current international thinking around. Agree or disagree, at least you won't find any NewsMax slop in there...

Gee, a "twofer". Providing support for CFR work (which is exceptional and valuable in my view) and a shot at the NewsMax drivel, all in one posting.

Part of the problem might be that with the omnipresence of the internet, stuff like the content in NewsMax is given the same, or greater, weight as the Foreign Affairs or The Economist publications. Since it takes less effort to comprehend the stuff like NewsMax, it tends to be quoted a bit and becomes the basis for discussions.

Pity.
