On Point with Charlie McGrath – RAND Corp Leaked Memo Spells Out Ukraine Blitzkrieg

‘Charlie McGrath presents activist Gary Hendershot and an overview of leaked RAND Corp memo (11 July 2014)’.

Already on 5 July 2014, RT reported that even “if the leaked plan of ‘handling’ Ukrainian crisis was not produced by the RAND corporation, events on the ground very much resemble the shocking points of the memo and the “guidelines for genocide” exported by the US, Don Debar from CPR News told RT. A memorandum, recently leaked to online media, suggested surrounding eastern Ukrainian cities and placing citizens in internment camps. The document bears a logo of RAND corporation think-tank, but the company denies producing such a report. While the authenticity of the document could not be independently verified, anti-war activist and journalist Don Debar told RT the guidelines amount to ‘serial war crimes’ some of which are already happening on the ground”.[1]

Don DeBar, Morning Show host on “Community Progressive Radio – From the Metropolitan NY area to the World” told RT that “actually knowing something about RAND Corporation, that is where reports credit the memo, it rings very true. RAND Corporation in the 1950s, for example, was contracted to take a look at the emerging political power of minorities in the cities. People were learning, as they got concentrated at the ghettos, people actually learned that they could accumulate political power, elect people to Congress, and state legislators and things. And this became a problem for the status quo. So RAND basically advised them to destroy neighborhoods, scatter the populations to the four corners of the region and thereby decimate political power. And urban renewal accomplished that. As far as its coming from RAND it is quite credible to me, it is the kind of work that they engage in”, adding significantly that “my understanding is that they advise the Pentagon to this day, yes”.[2]

Predictably, RAND itself released the following statement: “Some media outlets have circulated a memo purportedly prepared by the RAND Corporation regarding military operations in eastern Ukraine. RAND has produced no such document”.[3]
