Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota’s 5th district will present this year’s Letelier-Moffitt Awards at an October 3 event sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS). Orlando Letelier, a Chilean Marxist working for Cuba, had been manipulating the media and Congress before his death from a car bomb in 1976. He was exposed as a Cuban agent in briefcase papers found by law enforcement authorities after his death. He had been working for the Institute for Policy Studies.
The Marxist Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) provided cover and protection for such figures as Chilean Marxist Orlando Letelier, a paid agent of Cuba , and CIA defector Philip Agee, another paid agent of Cuba . The IPS also conducted international conferences with Soviet KGB-affiliated research organizations such as the Institute of the USA and Canada and the USSR-USA Friendship Society.
The IPS is the same organization that then-Rep. Leon Panetta, who became Obama's CIA director and Secretary of Defense, was associated with. Panetta and his wife were sponsors of an IPS anniversary celebration in 1983.
During the 1980s, Panetta joined with IPS in opposing every major weapons system proposed by the Reagan Administration.
For America's Survival,
