This was a close one.
We nearly ended up with a hardcore neocon in the new administration.
Charles Freeman is a longtime supporter of Saudi Arabia. Yes, Saudi Arabia, the nation behind the 9/11 attacks and the Bush family's long time partner in the oil industry. Freeman also sought to defend the Saudi royal family when they were sued for financing the 9/11 attacks!
Charles Freeman is a longtime supporter of China. Yes, China, the nation vying for the world's leader in human rights abuses.
He supposedly speaks Chinese, French, Spanish and Arabic. We're sure the neocons can find another use for him!
