policy reporters are linked to the U.S. government, weapons industry and oil
corporations - the very forces they are supposed to hold accountable.
Imagine a country where there's no separation between the government, the
military, and the media. A lot of Americans would think of China, Russia or
North Korea, but it's a perfect description of the United States today. And here
in Washington, the think tank inside this nondescript building - Center For A
New American Security (CNAS) - is the clearest example of just that.
CNAS is a premier militarist think tank in the nation's capital, especially for
Democratic Party administrations. It is funded by the State Department and
Pentagon and has taken more money from weapons companies over the last several
years than any other think tank. On top of that, it's funded by oil companies,
big banks, and right wing governments - basically the most destructive forces on
For President Joe Biden, CNAS serves as a farm, from which key positions in his
administration are cultivated. In fact, at least 16 CNAS alumni are now in key
positions in the Biden Pentagon and State Department.
But what's most shocking is that several national security and foreign policy
reporters from elite U.S. media outlets are affiliated with CNAS - and therefore
indirectly affiliated with, and likely paid by, the U.S. government and
corporations - the very forces that they should be holding accountable.
