On December 26, 2007, Xinhua News Agency published an article titled “An Investigation of Fake Think Tanks in the United States.” The article listed four U.S. think tanks, calling them “non-governmental organizations funded by the government,” employing “soft daggers” through “financing, supporting, planning subversive tactics, etc. against the targeted nations.” The following is part four of the translation of the entire article. 
Albert Einstein Institution: Behind-the-Scenes Player Behind Myanmar Chaos
With the name of "Einstein," this institute may sound like a scientific research institute. In fact, this institution headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts has earned a reputation for orchestrating non-bloodshed "soft coup" efforts throughout the world.
The founder of The Albert Einstein Institution, Gene Sharp, is an expert on subversion of foreign governments through non-violent opposition. He and the Director of the Institution, US-Ret. Col. Helvey, provide training to dissidents worldwide. Dissidents from Serbia,Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Myanmar, Ukraine and other countries all received training at the Einstein Institute which they used in political turmoil in these countries.
French journalist Thierry Meyssan wrote a book entitled " The Albert Einstein Institution: Non-violence according to the CIA," which discusses at great lengths how the organization carries out a "soft coup" through “civil disobedience.” Einstein Institute’s funding comes from the National Endowment for Democracy, i.e., from the government.
It is has been learned that the organization regularly supplies the United States Congress and the government with ideological offensive strategy reports and project initiatives that would be implemented by its “Human Rights Foundation,” “Foundation of Democratic Values,” and “Religious Freedom Foundation.” Its fingerprints were all over the disintegration of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe in recent years, as well as changes in the “Color Revolution.” At present, the Institution’s focus is on Myanmar.
According to media reports, Sharp, founder of the Einstein Institution, served as "the general director" in a series of anti-government activities in the so-called "Tibetan red revolution" in Myanmar.
The Einstein Institution started to operate in Myanmar in 1989. It has been learned that the United States Government has allocated to it a one-time $52 million funding for its activities in Myanmar. Its current Director, Helvey is the former U.S. Embassy military attaché for Rangoon and a CIA agent with extensive experience in subverting foreign governments.
At Helvey’s recommendation, Sharp visited Myanmar in 1989 and provided “non-violent resistance” training to local oppositions. In the recent Myanmar unrest, the Einstein Institution made waves through the networks and connections that it has built up over the years, acting in concert with the National Endowment for Democracy.
The Infamous "Fake Think Tanks"
These "fake think tanks" are not only notorious in the international communities but they are also the target of a number of protests in the United States.
Four years ago at the U.S. Congress, the U. S. Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul denounced the actions of National Endowment for Democracy for serving the interested groups in the United States under the pretext of "promoting democracy." He stated that NED has problems of mismanagement and serious corruption and that it is not only a waste of American taxpayers’ money, but is also always creating an enemy in the international community against the United States. He called on Congress to ban the organization.
Some American liberal scholars, lawyers and activists founded the International Foundation for Democracy against the National Endowment for Democracy. They pointed out that "democracy in the United States has sadly deteriorated at high speed, but the United States Government leans on NED and other organizations, and engages in shockingly hypocritical activities of so-called building
democratic countries and promotion of democracy in the overseas.” Instead, they called on the people of the world to support and promote democracy in the United States.
