In the US, the Brookings Institute, one of the most noted think tanks, received $24 million to influence the US foreign policy in favor of Qatar
The Brookings Institution is an American research group founded in 1916 on Think Tank Row in Washington, D.C. It conducts research and education in the social sciences, primarily in economics, metropolitan policy, governance, foreign policy, and global economy and development.
WikiLeaks released a communication from a Qatari government official which said Brookings was as valuable to them “as an aircraft carrier.”
But Brookings were made to sign an agreement that said it would never criticize Qatar or any of its entities.
Brookings offers foreign policy advice, but given that this will not include critical information about Qatar, means it wields a lot of influence over decisions being made.
