Lebanon's roots go far beyond those of a country whose borders were defined as a result of the divisions ofthe Ottoman Empire after WW II. Being home to great civilizations for thousands of years, Lebanon’s name, landscapes and inhabitants are mentioned several times in the Bible, which emphasizes its character as a sacred land, a holy ground, and an undisputed haven for the new traveler.

The earliest evidence of civilization in Lebanon dates back more than 7,000 years—predating recorded history. Lebanon was the home of the Phoenicians, a maritime culture that flourished for nearly 2,500 years (3000—539 BC). Following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after World War I, the five provinces that comprise modern Lebanon were mandated to France.

WASHINGTON — The agreement signed last year by the Norway Ministry of Foreign Affairs was explicit:

Coach Factory Outlet

For $5 million, Norway’s partner in Washington would push top officials at the White House,

Coach Outlet

at the Treasury Department and in Congress to double spending on a United States foreign aid program.

Coach Online Outlet

But the recipient of the cash was not one of the many Beltway lobbying firms that work every year on behalf of foreign governments.

Coach Factory Outlet

It was the Center for Global Development,

Coach Outlet Store

a nonprofit research organization, or think tank,

Coach Outlet Store

one of many such groups in Washington that lawmakers,

Coach Outlet Online

government officials and the news media have long relied on to provide independent policy analysis and scholarship.

Coach Factory Outlet

More than a dozen prominent Washington research groups have received tens of millions of

Coach Factory Online

dollars from foreign governments in recent years while pushing United States government officials

Coach Factory Outlet

to adopt policies that often reflect the donors’ priorities,

Coach Outlet Store Online

an investigation by The New York Times has found.

Chanel Handbags

The money is increasingly transforming the once-staid think-tank world into a muscular arm of foreign governments’ lobbying in Washington.

Louis Vuitton Outlet Online

And it has set off troubling questions about intellectual freedom:

Louis Vuitton Outlet

Some scholars say they have been pressured to reach conclusions friendly to the government financing the research.

Louis Vuitton Belt

The think tanks do not disclose the terms of the agreements

Hermes Belt

they have reached with foreign governments.

Coach Outlet Online

And they have not registered with the United States government as representatives of the donor countries,

Coach Outlet

an omission that appears, in some cases, to be a violation of federal law,

Coach Factory Outlet

according to several legal specialists who examined the agreements at the request of The Times.

Coach Outlet Online

As a result, policy makers who rely on think tanks are often unaware of the role of foreign governments in funding the research.

Coach Factory Outlet

Joseph Sandler, a lawyer and expert on the statute that governs Americans lobbying for foreign governments,

Coach Outlet Store Online

said the arrangements between the countries and think tanks

Coach Outlet Store Online

“opened a whole new window into an aspect of the influence-buying in Washington that has not previously been exposed.”

Coach Factory Outlet

“It is particularly egregious because with a law firm or lobbying firm, you expect them to be an advocate,”

Coach Outlet

Mr. Sandler added. “Think tanks have this patina of academic neutrality and objectivity,

Coach Handbags Outlet

and that is being compromised.”

Coach Outlet

The arrangements involve Washington’s most influential think tanks,

Coach Outlet

including the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic and International Studies,

Chanel Handbags

and the Atlantic Council. Each is a major recipient of overseas funds, producing policy papers,

Louis Vuitton

hosting forums and organizing private briefings for senior United States government officials

Louis Vuitton Outlet

that typically align with the foreign governments’ agendas.

Gucci Belts

Most of the money comes from countries in Europe,

Gucci Belt

the Middle East and elsewhere in Asia, particularly the oil-producing nations of the United Arab Emirates,

Louis Vuitton Outlet Online

Qatar and Norway, and takes many forms. The United Arab Emirates,

Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

a major supporter of the Center for Strategic and International Studies,

Louis Vuitton Outlet Online

quietly provided a donation of more than $1 million to help build the center’s gleaming new glass

Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

and steel headquarters not far from the White House. Qatar,

Cheap Oakley Sunglasses

the small but wealthy Middle East nation, agreed last year to make a $14.8 million,

Oakley Sunglasses

four-year donation to Brookings, which has helped fund a Brookings affiliate in Qatar

Louis Vuitton Outlet

and a project on United States relations with the Islamic world.

Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

Some scholars say the donations have led to implicit agreements that the research groups would refrain from criticizing the donor governments.

Louis Vuitton Outlet

“If a member of Congress is using the Brookings reports,

Oakley Sunglasses Outlet

they should be aware — they are not getting the full story,” said Saleem Ali,

Oakley Sunglasses

who served as a visiting fellow at the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar

and who said he had been told during his job interview that he could not take positions critical of the Qatari government in papers.“They may not be getting a false story, but they are not getting the full story.” springrain | 07 September 2014
