Neocon Chickenhawks: A Small Tightly-Knit Clan Part 2 (tags)
This list of intricate, overlapping connections is hardly exhaustive or perhaps even surprising. But it helps reveal an important fact. Contrary to appearances, the neocons do not constitute a powerful mass political movement. They are instead a small, tightly-knit clan whose incestuous familial and personal connections, both within and outside the Bush administration, have allowed them grab control of the future of American foreign policy.
Finkelstein Strangely Denies That Neocons Support Israel (tags)
Finkelstein is usually very good on Zionism but he really misses the mark on the Neocons. In his criticism of the Mearsheimer/Walt "Israel Lobby" essay, Finkelstein argues that the neocons watch over the American empire, but do not identify with Israel’s interests. As Mearsheimer and Walt have pointed out, the neocons were the driving force for the American attack on Iraq.
The Bush Administration's Dual Loyalties (tags)
Since the long-forgotten days when the State Department's Middle East policy was run by a group of so-called Arabists, U.S. policy on Israel and the Arab world has increasingly become the purview of officials well known for tilting toward Israel. From the 1920s roughly to 1990, Arabists, who had a personal history and an educational background in the Arab world and were accused by supporters of Israel of being totally biased toward Arab interests, held sway at the State Department and, despite having limited power in the policymaking circles of any administration, helped maintain some semblance of U.S. balance by keeping policy from tipping over totally toward Israel. But Arabists have been steadily replaced by their exact opposites, what some observers are calling Israelists, and policymaking circles throughout government now no longer even make a pretense of exhibiting balance between Israeli and Arab, particularly Palestinian, interests.

RICHARD PERLE CAUGHT RUNNING A $100-MILLION SHEIK-DOWN (tags)
Richard Perle, one of the most outspoken war party figures in and around the Bush Administration, has been caught in a $100-million attempted blackmail ``sheik-down'' of the Saudis, which could land him in jail.
OSAMA WAS NOT OUR CREATION, CLAIMS RUMSFELD (tags)
There were many different factions involved in the ``war of liberation'' in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union, Rumsfeld said. That included Osama bin Laden. But he flatly denied that Osama was a creation of the United States to be used against the Soviet Union, an issue which has undoubtedly been dogging him ever since the events of 911.
