May 2, 2016—For his latest Liberty Report segment, Dr. Ron Paul talked about Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy, and he also discussed the suggestions made by a group sponsored by what Daniel McAdams calls “beltway bandits.”
The bi-partisan group known as Center for a New American Security sent a list of suggestions for a Clinton foreign policy that caught Paul’s attention.
Here’s what he said:
“Found a fascinating article on the web as usual, it comes from Huffington Post. It’s entitled The Foreign Policy Blueprint Hillary Shouldn’t Follow. So that sorta caught my attention and this is coming from, you know, a liberal source and I thought, oh well maybe they are just going to talk about a Republican platform, but it’s not quite that way.
They are talking about a presentation by the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), which is an organization that’s been around since 2007. And they get into foreign policy, deeply. The two founders Michelle Flournoy and Kurt Campbell … one is described as a Democratic hawk and a Republican neocon. So I wonder if they could have something in common. But they have been around, they spent a little bit of money. Who do you think his sponsors are?”
Daniel McAdams replied by saying that CNAS is “the Democratic version of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a Bill Kristol group.” He used the graph below to illustrate who the CNAS sponsors are.
McAdams explained that “this is how you make a lot of money in Washington.” These think tanks involved with the military industrial complex lobby government to spend a great deal of resources on security, filling their donors’ pockets with hard-earned taxpayer money.
