    A large donor to the Cornell/Technicon project is Charles Feeney, who founded Atlantic Philanthropies.

    He has been a major donor to Cornell and other educational institutions. They hit him hard for the Technicon project.

    Yet when you read the mission statement of Atlantic Philanthropies

    “At the heart of our work is the belief that all people have the right to opportunity, equity and dignity.”

    Feeney worked behind the scenes on the Irish peace place. He is elderly now and I wonder if he knows what is really going on with Atlantic Philanthropies and all the money they have promised to Technicon and military R and D.

    Has anyone contacted Atlantic P. or their board on this?
