"I make no judgements as to the reliability of the information. Presumably that from official bodies should be more reliable and authoritative than information from satirical magazines or individuals with an axe to grind - but then again it could be argued that official bodies have a vested interest in playing down their own shortcomings! Readers will have to make up their own minds about these issues." he wrote.

Forbes: In the Dark

Beware of billionaires bearing gifts

By Richard C. Morais. Forbes: Inside the world of George Soros (04/07/97).
Billionaire. Social engineer. Philanthropist. Now he's propping up the old gang in Eastern Europe. A near decade after the collapse of the Soviet Union, much of Central and Eastern Europe is still ruled by the old gang. Guess who's helping keep them in power?
IF YOU'VE DIMLY wondered what is happening in Albania, we can, in a brief sentence, explain: George Soros' friends are coming out on top. Late in February, armed gangs led by gangsters and ex-Communists, many of them veterans of the old secret police state, all but toppled an elected liberal government, and forced the president to appoint a neo-Communist as prime minister. While this was happening, George Soros sat in his London town house and calmly told Forbes that his Albanian Foundation is "an excellent group very much on top of the situation."
