CEPA: Another western-funded foreign psyop directed back at the west

There’s something incredibly fascinating about the “Centre for European Policy Analysis” (CEPA). While other firms on the think tank gravy train at least try to dress up their agenda, this one is pretty up front.

Put bluntly, CEPA is a lobby group for British and American arms manufacturers and the broader US-led military complex, with offices in Washington and Warsaw. Its mission is to whip up anti-Russian hysteria, particularly in eastern Europe, because the country’s neighborhood being fearful of Moscow’s intentions is profitable for the bottom line of its financial supporters.

CEPA is funded by ‘regime-change specialists’ the National Endowment For Democracy, NATO, the US Department of Defence, the US State Department and other American government cutouts, who also bankroll copious other think tanks. But what makes CEPA “special” is the share of arms manufactures on its contributor list, which is far greater than comparable outfits: They include FireEye, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Bell Helicopter and BAE Systems.

The pressure group’s personnel list reads like a who’s who of anti-Russia activism, with the grandiose sounding ‘International Advisory Council’ featuring former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt and Estonia’s ex-President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, who was raised in the US, and once worked for its state broadcaster, RFE/RL. Also, erstwhile US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is listed, along with the late Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Polish-born one time National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter, and Anne Applebaum, a long term resident of Poland. She moved upstairs from a position as a “Senior Adjunct Fellow” (these people love their fancy titles).
