    What is it? when was it formed? First formed in the spring of 1918 at the Metropolitan Club in New York city,fall of 1917 a group called the Inquiry was assembled by Col Edward M House An admirer of Carl Marx,and so the story goes.
    A nest of vipers,dosen't change, or one good apple doesn't turn the other apples good---- they spoil the good one.
    The CFR was the begining of the downfall of America,please investigate this group,and do not be easily mis-led by soft speach,"you will know them by their fruit..

    "The CFR has always claimed to be a private organization that doesn't formulate any governmaent policy" " From the begining,their goal was to infiltrate the government and that was done""Actually they were so successfull,that today the CFR practically controls and dictates both domestic and foreign policy"

    Welcome to CFR.org, the website of the Council on Foreign Relations. It is designed to be an online resource for everyone in these turbulent times who wants to learn more about the complex international issues challenging policy-makers and citizens alike.

    Thinking about and discussing pressing foreign-policy issues is a long-established tradition at the Council on Foreign Relations, a nonpartisan and independent membership organization. As you can learn by reading our mission statement, the Council has promoted understanding of foreign policy and America’s role in the world since its founding in 1921. It does this in a variety of ways: by convening meetings at which government officials, global leaders, and Council members debate major foreign-policy issues; by operating a think tank that is home to the world’s most prominent scholars of international affairs; by sponsoring Task Forces and commissioning books and reports; and by publishing Foreign Affairs, the leading journal of global politics.

    We see CFR.org as a way to further that mission. Our goal is to make CFR.org the best single website for users searching for information and insights about international politics. Users will, of course, find materials produced at the Council on Foreign Relations: transcripts of on-the-record meetings, books by scholars, Background Q & A’s by the staff of CFR.org, op-eds and journal articles by Council fellows, and much more.

    But that is only half of the story. Unlike most other think-tank sites, CFR.org is not limited to “our” material. CFR.org is your guide to the best information and analysis, regardless of whether it is produced here at the Council or another institution. Website researchers, working with the Council’s library and fellows, scour the Internet for material from other think tanks, government agencies, educational institutions, and nongovernmental organizations in order to deliver the widest range of high-quality information and insight.

    Look at our homepage. That is your portal to the wealth of resources on CFR.org. It features packages of material tied to the most pressing issues of the day. You will find everything you need to understand a fast-moving international event:
    • links to primary documents: treaties, UN resolutions, speeches, communiques, etc.
    • links to background material: probing interviews with experts; brief “explainers” reported and written by the editorial staff of CFR.org that delve deeply into an issue; and reports from the Council, other institutions, and government agencies.
    • links to news coverage from media sources around the world.
    Looking for information on a specific topic? Material on the site is organized by region, by issue, and by publication type, and all of these categories are cross-indexed. Click on By Region, By Issue, or By Publication Type (the orange tabs at the top of this page, or in the left-hand column on the homepage) to quickly narrow your search. Or you can search the entire database using our site search engine.

    The site also provides a comprehensive account of the history and activities of the Council in New York , at its Washington, DC, office, and throughout the country. A new section of the site gathers material and resources specifically for use by college educators. And it offers special features, like Need to Know, a guide to what the foreign-policy community is reading, writing, and saying. We plan to add more features in the months ahead, in the hope that using CFR.org will become part of your regular web habit. In the meantime, please let us know what you think of CFR.org and how we can continue to make improvements.

    Can you provide any evidence that Edward M House was an admirer of Karl Marx? If House was truly an admirer of Karl Marx, can you provide evidence that shows what he admired about Karl Marx, or do you think that House simply patterned his life after Marx and appropriated his thought wholesale? And regarding the formation of the Inquiry, do you have any evidence that House recruited only people who thought just like he did?

    Groups change all the time. The Southern Baptist Convention was formed by those who supported the "right" of missionaries to own slaves. Within 40 years of the formation of the SBC, that idea had largely been rejected. Today, that idea is not tolerated.

    It would be helpful if everyone could agree on when the downfall of American began... This is the first time I've heard that it began in 1918. Usually it is pegged sometime in the 1960s, with the school prayer decisions.

    I examine some of their "fruit" rather frequently in their journal, "Foreign Affairs."

    Actually, from the beginning to today, foreign policy experts, diplomats, and political figures have been recruited to talk together and discuss foreign policy. That's not infiltration! Those people were already in government.

    And it seems like a very good idea for there to be a private channel of communication that is not highly politicized.

    This point is based upon the false premise that the group somehow worked their way into government ("infiltrated"). As a result, it is also false.
