The U.S. Military/Industrial/Foundation/Media Complex's war to install a new regime in Afghanistan was apparently planned by the U.S. Air Force's Santa Monica-based RAND Corporation military research think-tank many months before September 2001. And various U.S. Establishment Foundations have been helping to fund the RAND Corporation war-planning think-tank in recent years. The Ford Foundation gave a 0,000 grant to the RAND Corporation in 1998, for instance. The Rockefeller Foundation gave a 0,000 grant to the RAND Corporation in 1996. And the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation gave the RAND Corporation war-planning think-tank a .6 million grant in 1995. Carlyle Group Investor George Soros's Open Society Institute also gave the RAND military research thin-tank a 3,000 grant in 1998.
Bush Administration Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld sat on the RAND board of trustees between 1977 and 2001. Bush Administration National Security Affairs Director Condoleezza Rice sat on the RAND board of trustees between 1991 and 1997, at the same time she sat on the board of trustees of the Carnegie Corporation of New York foundation. And the former UNOCAL consultant who is now the Special Assistant to the President that's responsible for setting-up a post-Taliban regime in Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, apparently drew up the recently-implemented Afghan war strategy while working for RAND in Santa Monica, California a few years ago.
