This is an ODD time for a major CFR resignation. Somethings up. And "the powers that be" don't like it.

This "might" explain it. It's probably just me, but I don't trust anyone who has had anything to do with The New York Times. Or, hell, he's old. He might just be ready to pack it in.

Leslie H. Gelb is President of the Council on Foreign Relations. a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization devoted to improving America's understanding of foreign policy, since 1993. He is currently a Trustee for The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Tufts University. He is a Board Member of Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, and an Advisory Board Member for the Center on Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and a Fellow at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Prior to his tenure as President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Mr. Gelb had a distinguished career at The New York Times, where he was a columnist, Deputy Editorial Page Editor and Editor of the Op-Ed Page. He also served as the National Security Correspondent for The Times from 1981 - 1986, where he won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism in 1985.

Mr. Gelb was Senior Advocate for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, where he was Consultant to the German Marshall Fund of the U.S. Gelb was an Assistant Secretary of State in the Carter Administration, serving as Director of the Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs, where he received the highest State Department award: the Distinguished Honor Award. He was a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution from 1969 to 1973, during which time he was also a Visiting Professor at Georgetown University. He was Director of Policy Planning and Arms Control for International Security Affairs at the Department of Defense from 1967 to 1969, where he also served as Director of the Pentagon Papers Project. While at the Defense Department, Mr. Gelb won the Pentagon's highest award, the Distinguished Service Award.

This sounds like good news. Why harbor a leftie?
I'll bet Bush gave him an option. Socialism, or the United States. "You're either with us, or you're against us."

The timing does give me pause. Right before the SOTU. Libbers have been trying to dominate the airwaves the past three or four days.

I too thought Fareed Zakaria ( who is a rather eloquent speaker) was next in line. "Foreign Affairs" should be required reading for the 'possibilities that are' crowd, at the very least.

That's why I think he got "the boot."
The news of this will be small today. No one will notice the leftie missing! Bush's speach will get all the headlnes.
It will be a non-event.
When Bush shows someone the door, he usually has other, more important news to downplay it.

Fareed has almost been getting conservative lately, although Holbrooke has the experience and ties.

"Aren't all CFR people globalist lefties?"

Pretty much, no matter what stripe of politics they may claim to hold for public consumption. Of course there is the theory that most folks in CFR aren't a true part of the REAL conspiracy to bring about NWO. I hold that anybody who joins CFR does so at the cost of his soul and on behalf of unmitigated greed and thirst for personal power. Read "Shadows of Power" by James Perloff--it give a good read on the history and continuing threat posed by CFR.

You are probably correct.I don't think Holbrooke comes across as "Man" enough to chair the CFR. God knows he has the worldwide experience, but he seems so, what's the word for it,not to be harsh either,but, lightweight? He doesn't speak like an 'opinionated' person, is what I mean.

Actually I think he has become ineffective in dealing with a drastically changed global dynamic. I think that just maybe, CFR is preparing to move farther and faster in achieving the NWO than it has since it was created in 1921. God knows, Bush 41 and Bill Clinton brought it closer to a frightening reality than any other world leader in any time period in history. I think we're standing on the edge, folks. WHUPS!! My tinfoil hat is vibrating...message coming in, gotta go.
