Dr. Todd Helmus, Senior Behavior Scientist at the Rand Corporation says not all extremists are disenfranchised from society. He also spoke of the deadly shooting of a Canadian soldier in Ottawa this week.
Editor’s note: Nicknamed “the academy of science and death and destruction” by the Soviets, the RAND Corporation is a fixture of the military-industrial complex. It drives U.S. foreign policy. It also conducts research in the social sciences.
“Covert foreign policy became the standard mode of operation after World War II, which was also when Ford Foundation became a major player for the first time. The institute most involved in classified research was Rand Corporation, set up by the Air Force in 1948,” writes Rene Wormser (Foundations: Their Power and Influence, p65-66). “The interlocks between the trustees at Rand, and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations were so numerous that the Reece Committee listed them in its report (two each for Carnegie and Rockefeller, and three for Ford). Ford gave one million dollars to Rand in 1952 alone, at a time when the chairman of Rand was simultaneously the president of Ford Foundation.”
The Ford Foundation’s relationship with the CIA is documented.
“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,” writes James Petras.
“The largest philanthropic organization in the world was in fact providing a respectful facade for CIA financial and contact operations. This role was even more possible by the fact that the same persons designed and directed both organizations,” adds Voltaire Network.
