Zbig is often characterized as being against Jews. Interesting, considering that his foreign policy positions benefited Jews.
It’s an easy call to label Zbig an evil warmonger because that’s what he was.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, a longtime political scholar who served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, died Friday. He was 89.
His daughter, Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” confirmed his death in an Instagram post Friday night.
As one of Carter’s top aides from 1977 to 1981, Brzezinski played a role in major events including the Camp David Accords, the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan.
Brzezinski was a well-known foreign policy expert both before and after working in the Carter administration. He was often called in by later Presidents to weigh in on global issues.
Here’s four minutes of truth about Zbig.

Until his death, Brzezinski was a professor at Johns Hopkins University and worked at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.
A native of Poland, he was staunchly against the Soviet Union.
He was a driving force behind helping to arm Islamic troops fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan after its 1979 invasion.
Brzezinski was also influential in Carter’s efforts to normalize relations with China — even supporting their aid to Cambodian warlord Pol Pot to counter against the Soviet-backed Vietnam.
But the hawkish Democrat often clashed with Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Sr. Their quarrels led to Vance’s departure in April 1980. The top diplomat deemed his colleague “evil,” the New York Times reported in 2002.
Brzezinski was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1928, the son of a diplomat. His family fled to Canada in the buildup to World War II.
The video above provoked a few comments that Zbig was an Israeli shill, criticizing Israel to remain believable.
