Sitting at my think-tank/research institute front job today, I thought about how nice
it would be if my dad and mom paid me to sit around and read Gandhi and Foucault all day
and then conclude that people of different socio-economic means have been tricked into
false liberation. I also found this gem second from the top on CSIS's web site today.
It discusses CSIS's research on Islam, argues that the US created the current terrorism
problem that exists in our world through its funding of the mujahadeen against the Soviets
in Afghanistan, and concludes that the US needs to rethink its military power and how
it affects Islamic societies.
CSIS looks less and less monolithic the closer you look at the whole organization and
the further away you look from Tony Cordesman's Strategic Studies Program.
I suppose it's just another relay of intervention. Or maybe those idiots Korcok and Elliot
should be planning a protest of CSIS by the debate community for it being too left-wing?
I have the baton...
