Billionaire globalist George Soros is helping to lead the opposition to John Bolton becoming the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, says watchdog group Accuracy in Media.

Bolton, who has served as undersecretary of state, today is facing questioning from senators before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as part of his confirmation process.

Bolton’s candidacy “is the biggest battle over a nomination that we have seen in years,” said Accuracy in Media editor Cliff Kincaid. “But the Big Media have refused to identify the role of George Soros in orchestrating the opposition to Bolton.”

AIM says the pro-world government World Federalist Association has been running TV ads and a website opposing the Bolton nomination. According to the group, Soros is linked to two other groups fighting Bolton.

Soros spent $23 million in a failed attempt to prevent President Bush’s re-election. During last fall’s presidential race, Soros told reporters if Bush were to be re-elected, he planned to go away to “some kind of monastery to reflect on what is wrong with us.”

Bolton has been hammered for his blunt criticism of the U.N. and what Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., called his “diplomatic temperament.”
