28. What are you two talking about?
I get that NED was started by Reagan as a way to counter communism during the cold war.

I get that it is an NGO 97% funded by the GO.

That it is bi-partisan and Repugs, Democrats and neocons are all involved.

That there are separate arms for neocon and Democratic activists.

That there is some controversy that this group may do more than just help foster democracy- that they may be involved in things like over throwing a govt ex: Chavez.

Is that correct so far?

But what are you two arguing about with the book titles and links?

I don't get this, and it seems it should be important to this thread - can you break it down a bit?
