Andrew Apostolou! A Young PNACER Emerges...Check out his hate blog.
Advertisements [?]

I just listened to this obnoxious guy on CNN's "Center for American Progress Debate" over "what do we do with Iraq mess," and this NEW STAR who speaks like Tony Blair with as much arrogance was there joking and preening about what is really the PNAC policy. He must be an up and coming star. We need to watch out for him. His his Bio...

Those of you who like blogs check his out in the link below where he trashes Susan Sontag, Michael Moore, Hans Blix and the Iraqi prisoners who were tortured.


Andrew Apostolou
Vice-President, Research
The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies

Andrew Apostolou writes on Iraq, the Middle East and Central Asia. He has also written on south eastern Europe. He formerly worked for The Economist Group's Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), covering the former Soviet Union as of 1992.

He has debated the Uzbek ambassador to the US at the Council on Foreign Relations and spoken on European security at the United States Army War College. For two years he headed up the Economist Intelligence Unit's customised research unit, undertaking confidential reports for a wide-range of international companies. During these two years profits rose by 983% and revenues by 100%. Among the projects were "Global Foreign Direct Investment and the Importance of Real Estate" (reported in The Financial Times 30/5/1997), the Rwandan post-genocide justice system, the Turkish economy, "Setting up a joint venture in India," and parliamentary standards in Council of Europe member countries.

He has been interviewed on top-rated TV shows such as The O'Reilly Factor, Fox and Friends and Your World With Cavuto as well as CNN, CNN International, CNBC, Fox News, BBC domestic television and radio, the Voice of America (English and Kurdish services), the BBC World Service and the BBC Turkish and Uzbek Services, and various local and national radio programs. His articles have been published in The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The Wall Street Journal Europe, The Los Angeles Times, National Review Online, The Economist, The Daily Telegraph (London), and The Express (London), among others.

Before commenting upon Susan Sontag's latest effluence in The New York Times magazine, please find my comment on this silly person in March 2004 in a discussion of Greek anti-Semitism and media coverage of September 11:

Put otherwise, when terrorists attack the US, this is regrettable, but the US "had it coming." When the US strikes back at the terrorists, that is "aggression." (It's the same with intellectuals: when we criticise Susan Sontag, that is censorship. When she tells the rest of us we are fools, that is freedom of speech).

A modest proposal
Instead of inflicting Millwall fans on the beautiful, historic cities of Europe next season in the UEFA Cup, why not send them to meet the hooligans of Fallujah?

Vile, repulsive pictures of prisoner abuse. The footage is sickening and gets worse, so beware. This footage was on al-Arabiyya, the UAE based rival to al-Jazeera. You can be sure that these pictures will not be endlessly replayed on CNN. We await Susan Sontag's profound analysis with baited breath.

The Center for American Progress event is on C-Span on this page but it will move. /
