Soros-funded, Bilderberger-staffed group that is "working to prevent conflict worldwide."

Purposes

Co-founder, George Soros commented that "“My support of the ICG is part of a larger strategy. I believe in crisis prevention and crisis resolution. I have developed what I call the Soros doctrine — preventive action of a constructive nature which I juxtapose to the Bush doctrine of preemptive action of a military nature . . . I am the member of a well-balanced board which has such people on it as Richard Perle and Richard Allen."[1]

Funding

At the beginning of the ICG, funding was mainly from co-founder George Soros. ICG has an Advisory Council, which includes corporations like Chevron and Shell, as well as one member who is listed on its website as "Anonymous". Crisis Group has been criticised for serving the interests of its corporate and government funders.

Awards

The ICG's "In Pursuit of Peace Award" was established in 2005, and is associated with a gala event in New York City. Recipients include cabal leader George H. W. Bush and members Bill Clinton & Hillary Rodham Clinton as well as Nobel Peace Prize laureates Martti Ahtisaari and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and financier (and ICG co-founder) George Soros.

Staff

Karim Sadjadpour was "chief Iran analyst" at the International Crisis Group.

 

Events Sponsored

EventDescription
Koch family foundationsControlled by the billionaire Koch brothers, who finance the 'right' in US politics when they say the right things.
Open Society FoundationsA NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.
