Back in 19931, he was a grad student at Yale and wrote an op-ed for the Washington Times bemoaning that Yale has become a friendly environment for homosexuals and sounded pretty much like a modern-day Fundie.

Think tank asks European Union to halt funding Palestinian Authority
BYLINE: By BARRY SCHWEID, AP Diplomatic Writer

The Heritage Foundation, a private research group, is urging European leaders to stop funding the Palestine Authority in light of its "overwhelming anti-Israel bias" and allegations the aid funds Palestinian terror.
In a report, the foundation asked the Bush administration, which circumvents the Palestinian Authority in its assistance program, to press for an independent investigation into whether European Union funds are misused.
Direct aid to the authority, which is headed by Yasser Arafat, should be halted until elections are held and the leadership is changed, said a Heritage report prepared by Nile Gardiner, a visiting fellow in security policy.

Heritage Foundation Iraq specialist Nile Gardiner predicted 'Russia will be the first to crack.' A U.S. guarantee that Iraqi debts to Russia will be paid would help, Gardiner said, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin 'wants to be seen as a big player in the war on terrorism both domestically and internationally.'
