Should the Atlantic Council be required to register as a foreign agent? Does anyone seriously think the Atlantic Council doesn’t propagandize for NATO and for hawkish policies more generally? 

Or what about the hawkish Brookings Institution, or a host of other think tanks that welcome money from foreign powers?”…(subhead, “Silencing Dissent”)
