John A on Foreign Ownership of US Foreign Policy

This post is by John A:


In this Yahoo news article titled “Turkish envoy warns against U.S. genocide resolution”, this stood out for me:

Justice Department records show that Turkey signed a $100,000 -a-month contract in May with the lobbying firm DLA Piper, one of several hired to fight the resolution.

Separately, Turkey paid Bob Livingston , former House Appropriations Committee chairman, $625,000 for work from March 1 to Aug. 31, records show. Last month, Turkey added the public relations firm Fleishman-Hillard to its roster at $113,000 a month.

Republicans selling out the US to a fanatical Muslims is no new thing, but how is it that we can let other countries buy American foreign policy while being so blatant about it?
