The Asia Foundation in East Timor: Request for Proposals for Parliamentary Watch Project

ETLJB Note about The Asia Foundation: The CIA created TAF as a means of extending U.S. Cold War policy through civil-societal and cultural channels, and continued to covertly fund the organization throughout the late 1960s, long after they had publicly declared termination of support. It is generally believed that the Foundation served as a cover for intelligence operations while carrying out legitimate development programs at the same time. During the Cold War, TAF development aid was reserved for anti-Communist countries, or for indirectly building resistance against Communism.

Has this leopard changed its spots? ETLJB thinks not! So beware and be aware, applicants!
