According to Group Watch, Rosanne Klass was "a founding member of the Afghanistan Council of the Asia Society and is on the board of the anticommunist, 'democracy-building' Freedom House. Through the Afghanistan Relief Committee (ARC) and these groups she coordinated efforts to disseminate pro-mujahedeen information to the western world. Klass has been described, even by other Afghan rebel supporters as 'obsessed' and a 'fanatic'. Her connection with Freedom House gave Klass access to government officials and advisers such as Freedom House Trustees Zbigniew Brzezinski and Eugene Wigner. Freedom House Chairman Leo Cherne was a close associate of then-CIA head William J. Casey. When visitors come to ARC seeking information on the country, they are referred to works of Klass and told to contact her at Freedom House."[1]
