Is Putin Right on US Politics & Georgia?

August 31, 2008

The major U.S. news media is mocking Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin as delusional to suspect that U.S. politics – the need to boost Sen. John McCain’s campaign – was a factor in the recent Georgia-Russia clash.

But independent observers also have noted the prominence of McCain’s neoconservative adviser Randy Scheunemann – a longtime lobbyist for Georgia – in the middle of the controversy.

(The written story continues below.)

Conservative Pat Buchanan has called Sheunemann "a dual loyalist, a foreign agent whose assignment is to get America committed to spilling the blood of her sons for client regimes who have made this moral mercenary a rich man."

Journalist/historian Gareth Porter also notes how the United States has easily applied “a double standard to condemn Russia." is an independent news network that produces stories of global interest.
