NPOV[edit]

This entry is just boilerplate from the C.N.A.S.'s website. Wikipedia should cut through such crap & tell us what this thinktank DOES & where it STANDS. 68.19.201.203 (talk) 14:21, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I have no idea how to do hyperlinks here. There's an op-ed piece in the NYT By JOHN NAGL, COLIN KAHL and SHAWN BRIMLEY who are noted as being CNAS fellows: How to Exit Iraq. I looked here to see if there was any discussion about this organization. I do agree with the previous comment, that it has the ring of direct marketing copy straight from the organization itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshwager (talkcontribs) 11:53, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
I agree that this page doesn't meet the most minimal requirements of Wikipedia. It should be rewritten or deleted. Wlegro (talk) 16:11, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
In that case, you should have AfD'd it. It seems to me that the organization is a few ex-lifers (former career military) attempting to get some consideration for the 1% of the US population serving in the military - kind of, "mission impossible, maybe; mission idiotic, no." I reorganized this discussion and refrained from slapping an NPOV banner on the article. - 12.69.99.122 (talk) 16:52, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Funding?[edit]

The most important thing to know about a think tank is where its money comes from. There's no mention of that in this puff piece. Hayduke865 (talk) 15:31, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Related article?[edit]

I've just come across The Iran lobby in the United States, an orphaned article which looks potentially quite problematic - I don't know much about the topic, but it reads fairly one-sided, and may not be appropriate for a Wikipedia article. (Apart from anything else, a contribution by a user called "Minitrue Propdep" is faintly alarming). It mentions this group specifically - could someone with expertise take a look? If need be, it may need deleting, or partially merging into Iran – United States relations.
