Soros-Backed Group that Helped Sell Iran Nuclear Deal Funds Media, DC Think Tanks
BREITBART ^ | 20 May 2016 | Aaron Klein

TEL AVIV – A group that advocates a nuclear-free world and was identified earlier this month by the White House as central in helping to market the Iran nuclear deal to the news media has funded National Public Radio since 2005, an Associated Press investigation has revealed.

Think tanks funded by the Ploughshares Fund include the Arms Control Association, Brookings Institution, and the Atlantic Council, the AP reported.

Unmentioned by the AP is that the Ploughshares Fund is financed by billionaire GEORGE SOROS' OPEN SOCIETY INSTITUTE.

The involvement of Ploughshares in selling the Iran agreement to the public was revealed in an extensive New York Times Magazine profile of Obama's deputy national security advise Ben Rhodes titled, "The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama's Foreign-Policy Guru." The article contains interviews with Rhodes and scores of top Obama administration officials.

Robert Malley, senior director at the National Security Council, explained the genesis and execution of the marketing plan to sell the Iran deal.

Malley explained "experts" were utilized to create an "echo chamber" that disseminated administration claims about Iran to "hundreds of often-clueless reporters" in the news media.

In the spring of last year, legions of arms-control experts began popping up at think tanks and on social media, and then became key sources for hundreds of often-clueless reporters. "We created an echo chamber," he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. "They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say."

Rhodes told Times reporter David Samuels that the marketing strategy took advantage of the "absence of rational discourse" and utilized outside groups, including Ploughshares.

Excerpted Rhodes nodded: "In the absence of rational discourse, we are going to discourse the [expletive] out of this," he said.

I'm re-posting my comment from another thread of the same subject because it can't be said too often.
Don't anyone forget. Ted Cruz, the most brilliant "principled constitutional conservative" to ever waltz into the Senate chamber had a part in approving that idiocy when he signed the Corker Bill.

Ted Cruz and others might someday have Israeli and or American blood on their hands as a result.

Prediction: Several governments will again start a manhunt for Soros. Give him an opportunity to die in prison.

These foundations are nothing but organized crime and money laundering. How on earth is foreign money allowed to flow into our country to fund government usurping and media/election controlling foundations???

These groups are treasonous. No foreigners should have sway or influence on ANY of our institutions!
