You might have heard General John Allen's enthusiastic endorsement of Hillary Clinton at the DNC. Here's a little bit of relevant background.
Allen is currently with Brookings. Allen showed up to address the Brookings shindig in Doha, Qatar. This is no coincidence because Qatar is Brookings' sugar daddy.
Qatar, the small but wealthy Middle East nation, agreed last year to make a $14.8 million, four-year donation to Brookings, which has helped fund a Brookings affiliate in Qatar and a project on United States relations with the Islamic world.
Qatar is also notable for worsening the Arab Spring by funneling money and a lot more to Jihadist groups and aggressively advancing the agenda of Islamists. Alongside Hillary Clinton.
Connect the dots. It's fun for the whole family.
