Washington, DC: The Emperor Wears No Clothes

Posted on by

DC moon NASAThose that have been paying attention to the war hawks in DC know about the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), a neocon think tank that rose out of the ashes of infamous Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

When Abby was placed in the crosshairs of war mongers last year during the Ukraine incursion, Media Roots was repelled by the dark world of groups that help shape foreign policy yet are completely removed from the electoral process.

Intrepid journalists like Ken Silverstein have been writing about the trend for years. In 2007 Silverstein conducted a groundbreaking investigation into obscure lobbying firms in DC and their role in improving the image of dictatorial regimes in his book Turkmeniscam. He’s since written several important stories about the next generations of neocons who hype up the new Cold War and sensationalize aspects of the War on Terror.

As tensions between the US and Russia escalate further everyday, Silverstein joins Media Roots Radio to give his insight on foreign government lobbying and how news is made in the dark underbelly of DC’s revolving door.
