A whose who in the faux democracy pomotion movement

June 10, 2007 at 10:57 pm (faux democracy promotion)

Jim Lobe has a couple of good articles on Neo-Con targeting of Iran. I do not agree with him on some points, where he suggests that certain faux dissidents are “real” even though they are hanging out with the US neo-con anti-Iran soft and hard (counter) revolutionists. No self-described “dissident” can possibly be considered legitimate while they are collaborating with such an atrocious crowd.

However, he has linked to some fascinating documents on two recent conferences of the (faux) “democracy promotion” crowd.

The first one, sponsored by the Foundation for Defence of Democracies, was in Bahamas, and specifically focused on Iran.

You can read the agenda of that conference here

The second one was sponsored by the Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI), the Adelson Institute for Strategic Studies at the Likudist Shalem Center in Jerusalem, and Spain’s Foundation for Social Studies and Analysis (FAES) headed by former Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar.

A list of the conference participants can be read here – worth reading over a few times, so that next time you see their names associated with this or that (faux) “dissident” you’ll know what is going on…
