May 20, 2010 - PRLog -- My new article on Huffington Post digs into the machinations of US Pavilion organizers in the State Department and the private sector to corporatize our presence in Shanghai and privatize American public diplomacy generally. Two Secretaries of State are implicated.

It's a big story hiding in a small building in a remote region of the world unknown to most Americans.  

It''s also timely:  Clinton arrives in Shanghai on Saturday to celebrate the successful corporate takeover of the US Pavilion, a major interface with China's economic leadership.

I provide links to my formal complaint just made to the IRS, now online, that reveals how this ongoing takeover of the State Department being is led, as entertainment; and to a Request for an Investigation made to State's OIG, which contains a full timeline of events.  

The New York Stock Exchange, a US Pavilion "marketing partner" (sponsor), today issued this fascinating release announcing the first opening of that trading outside of NYC -- and it happened right in the US Pavilion, in Shanghai.  It validates my account of the US Pavilion and its purpose: to promote American multinationals, not the American nation.

"Stalking Horse" is the follow-up to my former well-received article, also on HuffPost, relating the origins of the US Pavilion as a test of privatizing American diplomacy,

I'm available for your questions, comments, and interviews.  My personal thanks for helping me bring this story to the attention of the American people.
