A fascinating profile of Paul Manafort - Drumpf's campaign manager. He seems to have a penchant for dictators like none else and can claim to be responsible for chaos around the world.
That he's considered 'successful,' makes me pause to rethink reality for a bit. I highly highly recommend reading the whole article.
P.S. War is Boring is one of my favorite blogs to exist today. Their profiles of defense tools are fantastic, especially their love for the A10 Warthog and continued coverage of the Joint Strike Fighter (F35) saga.
Some excerpts follow -
Manafort has worked on behalf of an Angolan warlord, a Lebanese arms-dealer, the Pakistani spy agency that went on to create the Taliban, the Putin-aligned president of Ukraine and a who’s-who of 1980s dictators. He helped enrich clients who left trails of death and destruction in their wakes.
Manafort also has extensive experience working as a political operative in the United States as far back as 1976. He worked for the presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Robert Dole, and George W. Bush. His record suggests he’s pretty good at his job.
Almost 40+ years of wreaking havoc around the world using US money. Such a waste. =|
