SPONSORED BY CIA's FORD FOUNDATION?
by bob feldman
The mass-circulation weekly TEMPO accused Ford of having
once played, at the urging of the U.S. Central Intelligence
Agency, a covert role in Indonesian political affairs by consciously
supporting the work of individuals who were deemed to be sympathetic
to the anti-communist aims of American foreign policy.
Chronicle of Philanthropy, 12/13/01
The Ford Foundation's history of collaboration and interlock
with the CIA in pursuit of U.S. world hegemony is now a well-documented
fact...The Ford Foundation has in some ways refined their
style of collaboration with Washington's attempt to produce
world cultural domination, but retained the substance of that
policy...The ties between the top officials of the Ford Foundation
and the U.S. government are explicit and continuing.
James Petras in "The
Ford Foundation and the CIA: A documented case of philanthropic
collaboration with the Secret Police" on 12/15/2001
The multi-billion dollar Ford Foundation's historic relationship
to the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] is rarely mentioned
on Pacifica's DEMOCRACY NOW / Deep Dish TV show, on FAIR's COUNTERSPIN
show, on the WORKING ASSETS RADIO show, on The Nation Institute's
RADIO NATION show, on David Barsamian's ALTERNATIVE RADIO show
or in the pages of PROGRESSIVE, MOTHER JONES and Z magazine.
One reason may be because the Ford Foundation and other Establishment
foundations subsidize the Establishment Left's alternative media
gatekeepers / censors.
