Substituting for Sullivan, Steve Clemons, one of the more interesting foreign policy realists out there, has pointed out that everyone’s favourite, Michael O’Hanlon, is under contract with Al-Hurra (which literally means “the free one”). Al-Hurra is the Arabic-language U.S.
propaganda information service, which O’Hanlon serves in both a producing and commentary capacity.
This is the same service, incidentally, that has made headlines for being managed by officials who (you guessed it) don’t know Arabic, which has led to the unwitting broadcast of terrorist messages on the network. Your tax dollars at work.
