Many people here have asked me for my opinion of Lyndon LaRouche. Apparently, it is not known here that he is a kook. By mentioning that he is a "former Democratic candidate for president of the US" people and governments in the Middle East take him seriously. He was even invited by the UAE government (which had invited white supremacist David Duke before) for series of "lectures." I know that he had (allegedly) connections with the Iraqi government of Saddam in the past and his publication (I think that it is called Executive Intelligence) is widely read in government and media circles.
