Mark Solomon served as national chairperson of the KGB front organization, the U.S. Peace Council and was also Presidential Committee member of the World Peace Council. Solomon has also been national co-chair of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS).
Solomon has declared,
|“||The most important element in the rise of Barack Obama is that his candidacy is built upon a potentially powerful new movement capable of forging a progressive majority in the nation's politics... While neither [Hillary] Clinton nor Obama comes close to challenging US imperialism, Obama has signaled willingness to meet with US opponents and has voiced an openness to take major steps toward nuclear disarmament. Despite the fact that neither candidate has offered a coherent vision of their foreign policies, it is nevertheless in that realm that the differences between Clinton and Obama are sharpest, with Obama calling for an end to the outrages of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo and the restoration of multilateral cooperation in seeking to stabilize a dangerous world.||”|
