Zbigniew Brzezinski, a Polish-born US deep politician, was one of only 38 people known to have attended both the Bilderberg and Le Cercle. In his obituary, the Washington Post termed him a "combative, visionary foreign policy intellectual". On the same occasion, the Progressive Labor Party termed him "a major architect of U.S. imperialism."

Zbigniew Brzezinski was born in Poland. The Second World War had a profound effect on Brzezinski, who stated that: "The extraordinary violence that was perpetrated against Poland did affect my perception of the world, and made me much more sensitive to the fact that a great deal of world politics is a fundamental struggle." Brzezinski became a naturalized American citizen in 1958.
Zbigniew Brzezinski was a professor at Columbia University in the late 1960s when, during a Progressive Labor Party-led student strike, he called for the arrest, trial and incarceration of the leadership of 1968 campus strikes — and “[i]f that leadership cannot be liquidated at least it can be expelled from the country.”
Brzezinski served as Bill Clinton's emissary to Azerbaijan in order to promote the Baku–Tbilisi–Ceyhan pipeline. Subsequently, he became a member of Honorary Council of Advisors of U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC). Further, he led, together with fellow member of Le Cercle, Lane Kirkland, the effort to increase the endowment for the U.S.-sponsored Polish-American Freedom Foundation from the proposed $112 million to an eventual total of well over $200 million.
As Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Europe and NATO Policy (2001–2005) he developed "a plan for Europe" urging the expansion of NATO, making the case for the expansion of NATO to the Baltic states.
