They are a front for imperialism, but for agitational purposes some of
their material can still be very useful. Until anyone in the u.s. is
persuaded otherwise, he/she will (spontaneously) assume that "neutral"
means "pro-u.s." And when a source neutral in _that_ sense provides
damning information on a u.s. ally, it can be powerful.
