Lou Dobbs interviews Fouad Ajami. Who Is he?
I just watched Lou Dobbs interview the mideast expert from Johns Hopkins University. I was rather shocked that I was hearing PNAC like talk from this fellow. I did some googling and look what I found. He appears to be on of the gang all right. Has anyone else seen this guy before. Shame on Lou!

So complete is the influence of this syndicate, that its members have been involved in every aspect of the invasion. US television audiences were treated to the surreal and disgusting spectacle of TV war commentary presented by its own creators and advocates, from Paul Wolfowitz to Ahmed Chalabi and Jalal Talabani of the Kurdistan Democratic Party. Former Combating Terrorism for Homeland Security Defense Board Director Wayne Downing (who co-signed the Iraq Liberation Act, and wrote a 1997 plan with CIA veteran and Iran-Contra figure Dewey Clarridge for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein), made nearly daily appearances on MSNBC and other US war telecasts as a "military expert." Fouad Ajami of Johns Hopkins, a Zbigniew Brezezinski colleague, appeared frequently, as he did throughout the first Gulf War, to denounce Saddam Hussein. Iran-Contra mastermind Oliver North was embedded with the US Marines for Fox News.

1. He's been on several times ...
and always the same old "the Arabs don't want a free and prosperous Iraq" line. I think Lou has him on to ensure that he present both sides of the issue ... I forget who he had on last night, but he was opposed to the war, and after the segment Lou said Ajami was going to be on tonight. :shrug:

2. Thought he was good guy, prior to invasion.
Now I think he's PNAC.
