Friends,



My book, "The Transparent Cabal: The Neoconservative Agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel," is coming out in June (or perhaps late May). It is listed on Amazon at

http://www.amazon.com/Transparent-Cabal-Neoconservative-National-Interest/dp/1932528172

and can be pre-ordered. I might add that it is generating some interest and often has been ranked in Amazon's top 100 for 21st-century U.S. history books.



I am trying to get publicity for the book. Reviews from large publications are not likely. Unfortunately, even publications that deal with the neocon issue, such as “The American Conservative,” seem unwilling to review it. (Pre- publication, bound-galley copies have been distributed.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who would be willing to review the book for a publication or website; let me know, and I will contact the publisher to obtain a review copy. I would also appreciate help in obtaining speaking engagements to promote my book, especially radio interviews over the telephone (since my travel funds are limited). Any other publicity provided for my new book would also be very much appreciated. It would be very helpful to have the book mentioned as much as possible on the Web and/or on mailing lists.



Attached are a few publicity items from the publisher.

Dissemination would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve Sniegoski

The following is a brief summary of the book.

The Transparent Cabal: The Neoconservative Agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel

By Stephen J. Sniegoski

This work examines a controversial, and in some respects, taboo subject: the role of the neoconservatives as the fundamental driving force in the Bush administration’s war on Iraq in 2003 and the subsequent militant American policy in the Middle East, and the close relationship of these neocons’ with the Israeli Likudnik right. It marshals evidence to illustrate that this foreign-policy blunder – of colossal proportions, from the perspective of the American national interest – stems from the fact that the policy, pushed by the neoconservatives, was created to serve the interests of a foreign

country, namely Israel. Such a thesis does not mean that the neoconservatives intentionally sought to aid Israel at the expense of the United States, but rather that they have seen American foreign policy through the lens of Israeli interest.



While not focused on the neoconservative movement per se, this book reviews the background of the neoconservatives – their network and agenda – as it relates to the aforementioned foreign-policy theme. What characterizes neoconservatives is not only their but also their personal interconnectedness in terms of organizations, publications, schooling, and even blood. Of crucial importance is how the neocons, over the years, identified closely with the interests of Israel, and how their Middle East agenda paralleled that of the Israeli Likudnik right. In fact, much of the neocon approach to the Middle East can be seen to have originated in Likudnik thinking. And the Israeli government of Ariel Sharon worked in tandem with the neocons in supporting both the war on Iraq and the U.S.’s later militant policies toward Iran and Syria.

The overarching goal of both the neocons and the Likudniks was to create an improved strategic environment for Israel. The aim of the neoconservative and Likudnik foreign-policy strategy was to weaken and fragment Israel’s adversaries in the Middle East and concomitantly increase Israel’s relative strength, both externally and internally. A key objective was to eliminate the demographic threat posed by the Palestinians to the Jewish state, which the destabilization of Israel’s external enemies would achieve, since the Palestinian resistance depended upon external support, both moral and material. Without outside support, the Palestinians would be forced to accede to whatever type of peaceful solution Israel offered.

The neoconservative position on the Middle East was the polar opposite of what had been the traditional United States foreign policy, set by what might be called the foreign-policy establishment. The goal of the traditional policy was to promote stability in the Middle East in order to maintain the flow of oil. In contrast to pursuing stability – the traditional goal – the neocons called for destabilizing various of the existing regimes in the Middle East. Of course, the neocons couched their policy in terms of the eventual restabilization of the region on a democratic basis. This work questions the

genuineness of the neocons’ motives with respect to democracy – at least in light of how democracy is normally understood.

Over the years, the neocons developed a powerful, interlocking network of think tanks, organizations, and media outlets outside of government with the express purpose of influencing American foreign policy. By the end of the 1990s, the neoconservatives developed a complete blueprint for the remaking of the Middle East by military means, starting with Iraq. It was only by becoming an influential part of the administration of George W. Bush that they obtained a position to make their Israeli-centric agenda actual American policy.

But the neocons did not gain the upper hand in formulating the foreign policy of the Bush administration until the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 – which proved to be the pivotal events in the neocon ascendancy. When the administration looked for a plan to deal with terrorism, the neocons had one to offer, and a network, inside and outside of the government, to promote it.

The second President Bush was essentially a convert to neoconservative policy. Prior to 9/11, Bush never exhibited any strong understanding of or interest in Middle East policy, and was therefore in need of the kind of guidance that the neocons could present in a simple paradigm—good versus evil—that Bush would find attractive.

The neocons did not drag the majority of the American people into war in 2003 against their collective will. In large measure, the neoconservative militaristic agenda resonated with an American public and Congress that had been traumatized by terror and was desperately seeking a way to retaliate. Moreover, the neocon network, inside and outside the government, was in place to push the bogus propaganda – most critically regarding the non-existent weapons of mass destruction (WMD) threat posed by Iraq – to successfully mobilize congressional and popular support for the war agenda.

The book goes over the post-invasion issues and the neocon efforts to extend the destabilization effort elsewhere in the Middle East, especially Iran. Emphasized is the opposition to this agenda by the foreign policy establishment. This opposition combined with the increasing unpopularity of the war in Iraq has so far limited the extension of the neocon war agenda, though its impact so far has already served to destabilize the region.

Moreover, the success of pro-neocon John McCain as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee illustrates that the neoconservatives’ influence still remains. And the existence of American forces in Iraq can easily lead to an American war on Iran and the continued implementation of the neoconservatives’ regional goals.
