A Terrorist Safe Haven is Sponsoring the Politico’s Playbook

We need to remember that the nation of Qatar is increasingly a safe haven for radical Islamic terrorists and that Qatar is also dropping massive cash on American news organizations. Just two years ago, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates severed ties with Qatar because of its sponsorship of terrorism.

Qatar has increasingly been friendly with Iran and has been willing to turn a blind eye to terror networks operating from within the country.

While no disrespect is intended towards Politico’s Playbook, it is worth noting that Qatar is sponsoring it with a propaganda effort that denies its ties to terrorism.

This appeared in today’s Politico Playbook as a sponsored blurb.

There has been a growing suspicion within national security corridors that Qatar is throwing its money around American news outlets to either suppress stories about Qatar or amplify stories about Saudi Arabia and other American allies that have turned on Qatar. The nation is also using its money to fund Osama Bin Laden’s favorite news network, Al-Jazeera.

Much like Chinese propaganda efforts in the west, this bears watching.
