In a case of politics makes strange bedfellows, organizations funded by four billionaires on the left and right are uniting to put on a major conference at Columbia University calling for the end to the war on terrorism, and the legalization of dangerous drugs. The featured speaker is writer Glenn Greenwald, best known for publishing NSA secrets leaked to him by Edward Snowden, the former NSA analyst living in Moscow who has been charged with espionage in the U.S.

The "Stop the Wars on Drugs and Terrorism" Conference is being sponsored by the Future of Freedom Foundation and Young Americans for Liberty, both financed by Koch Brothers' money. Two other groups involved in the event, Glenn Greenwald's First Look Media and Ethan Nadelmann's Drug Policy Alliance, are financed by billionaires Pierre Omidyar and George Soros, respectively.

Greenwald has appeared before conferences sponsored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front, and the International Socialist Organization (ISO), one of America's main Trotskyist/Marxist-Leninist parties.

The Koch Brothers are usually attacked by "progressives" for underwriting some Tea Party activities and promoting free enterprise capitalism. But their libertarian perspective gives them common cause with the far-left, especially on foreign policy.

The emergence of two Koch-funded organizations in a major conference promoting anti-NSA writer Glenn Greenwald has caught many conservatives by surprise. Greenwald, a libertarian turned leftist, called the 9/11 attacks "minimal in scope," compared to the damage he said America was inflicting on the world.

Calling this a "libertarian-leftist alliance," blogger and Tea Party activist Tina Trent tells Accuracy in Media, "Citizen activists in the Tea Party and 9/12 movements need to understand that libertarians are moving further and further to the left. This conference is just one example of how a radical leftist agenda is now the priority of national libertarian leaders who otherwise claim to be conservatives, and who are using their influence in the Tea Party to promote things like drug legalization."
