I dealt with these questions 5 years ago but this time the NED business 
was being raised by Moon of Alabama rather than Grayzone. This will give 
you an idea of how far into orbit Norton and Blumenthal have gone. Moon 
of Alabama is ground zero for this kind of "follow the money" 
conspiracism. Moon of Alabama excoriated them for plagiarizing Vanessa 
Beeley on the White Helmets. I wonder if they'll get the same kind of 
static for plagiarizing MofA.

Here's my take on NED funding:
