Pakistani Ambassador Unknowingly Hosted Neocon Fundraiser

Ali Gharib

WASHINGTON - Amid putting on a two-and-a-half day conference focused on
escalating measures against Iran, a neoconservative think-tank held a
fundraiser at the residence of Pakistan's ambassador to the U.S.,
according to an IPS investigation.

The embassy said the think tank,
the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), failed to notify the
Pakistani embassy that the dinner at the home of Ambassador Husain
Haqqani was a fundraiser, or that it was connected to the conference
about "Countering the Iranian Threat".
