Krauthammer's Definition Of 'Neocon'

Charles Krauthammer, Friday: The decision to go to war was made by a war cabinet consisting of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powe

Charles Krauthammer, Friday:

The decision to go to war was made by a war cabinet consisting of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Donald Rumsfeld. No one in that room could even remotely be considered a neoconservative.

Key participants in the Project for the New American Century and their positions in the Bush administration at the start of the war in Iraq:

    • Richard Cheney, Vice-President
    • Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense
    • Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretary of Defense
    • Peter Rodman, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs
    • Richard Armitage, Deputy Secretary of State
    • John Bolton, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security
    • Elliot Abrams, Senior Director for Near East, Southwest Asian, and North African Affairs, National Security Council
    • James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence; member Defense Policy Board
    • Lewis Libby, Chief of Staff, Office of the Vice-President

Whaddaya say, Charles, are PNAC leaders neocons?
