In that NY Times piece that got him in  big trouble,  Ben Rhodes said he exploited the Ploughshares Fund to help him create the echo chamber constructed to sell the Iran deal: “We are going to discourse the [expletive] out of this… We had test drives to know who was going to be able to carry our message effectively, and how to use outside groups like Ploughshares, the Iran Project and whomever else”

The Associated Press just published a deep dive into Ploughshares’s most recent annual report, which details some of those 85 organizations and 200 individuals paid to help it push the Iran deal through.. The AP broke down the network funded by Ploughshares into three kinds of groups, Journalists and media outlets, Think tanks and nuclear-issues associations and Lobbies

The fund takes its name from the famous quote from the book of Isaiah “And He shall judge between the nations, And shall decide for many peoples; And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruninghooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war any more.”

 The Ploughshares Fund is a donation hub that has distributed millions of dollars in recent years to groups pushing the Iran deal. After Congress failed to defeat the deal, Ploughshares President Joseph Cirincione published a video and letter boasting about how the echo chamber – over 85 groups and 200 people – was created with Ploughshares money: “groups and individuals were decisive in the battle for public opinion and as independent validators… they lacked a common platform – a network to exchange information and coordinate efforts. Ploughshares Fund provided that network… we built a network of over 85 organizations and 200 individuals… We credit this model of philanthropy – facilitating collective action through high-impact grant-making – with creating the conditions necessary for supporters of the Iran agreement to beat the political odds”

The Journalists and media outlets section in the AP Report includes NRP and at least two unnamed writers who were funded to write at Mother Jones and The Nation
