Lines of Credit: Ropes of Bondage

The conviction of one-of-its-own was no more than a brief unacknowledged embarrassment for the Council on Foreign Relations which continued to supply succeeding administrations with secretaries of state, secretaries of defense, national security advisers, CIA directors, and even Vice-Presidents and a President. A few examples will suffice:

John Foster Dulles – secretary of state for Eisenhower;

Dean Rusk – secretary of state for Kennedy and Johnson;

* Henry Kissinger – secretary of state for Nixon;

Nelson Rockefeller – vice president for Ford;

* Cyrus Vance – secretary of state for Carter;

* Zbigniew Brezezinski – national security adviser for Carter;

* George P. Shultz – secretary of state for Reagan;

* Brent Scowcroft national security advisor for Bush;

* Richard B. Cheney secretary of defense for Bush;

* President George Bush was himself a director of the Council from 1977-79.

(* past or present officer/director of the CFR.)

The Council on Foreign Relations of “Colonel” Edward M. House has more than adequately fulfilled its commitment to study and influence international affairs!
