The Best Places To Find Off-the-Wall Warmongering "Analysis"...

...could very well be at inside the beltway "libertarian" think tanks.

Daniel McAdams, executive director of the  Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, provides a bit more background information on the Cato Shrugged analyst who is warning that Russia would like to takeover Finland (SEE: Cato Shrugged Analyst: Putin 'Wants to Regain Finland'). 

McAdams writes:
It is not always necessary to click on the latest press release from the neocon dynamic duo, McCain and Graham, to get a sample of the most outrĂ© pronouncements. Sometimes the most outlandish and warmongering "analyses" can be found in the strangest places.
Take the CATO Institute's Andrej Illarionov, for example. Wrongly billed as "Putin's closest advisor," Illarionov has nothing to do with the current Russian government. He resigned as an economic advisor after a report in the US-government financed Freedom House convinced him that Russia was no longer a free country. He somehow makes a living continuing to ascribe all manner of hysterical motives and aspirations to the Russian government, with no one going back to fact-check his analytical accuracy.
