A US organization claims it is an NGO but it has on its Board of Directors

  1. a person who currently holds a US federal office, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  2. a person who yesterday held a US federal office, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  3. a person who yesterday, until yesterday held a US federal office of some kind for thirty years, is it an NGO? Not truly.
  4. a person who thirty years ago, held a US federal office of some kind for a year or so is it an NGO? Maybe.
  5. a person who everyone “knows” is part of the power elite but who doesn’t/didn’t ever hold a US federal office, is it an NGO? I don’t think so.
