Neo-conservatives don’t exist

Posted by Jesse on March 10, 2009

Or so says Richard Perle. He “declined to identify what was a neo-conservative philosophy, or worldview”. Here’s the WaPo article Lobe refers to “Prince of Darkness Denies Own Existence”.

This interview with Jim Lobe starts out giving some nice examples and insights on various political movements concerning US policy. Specifically, liberal internationalism, neo-conservatism, realism, intervention, and unilateralism and how these lines are divided, (especially concerning the middle east and Israel).

Scott Horton asks about Dennis Ross,  his background and significance, etc.

From antiwar.com:

Jim Lobe, Washington Bureau Chief for Inter Press Service, discusses the balance of power between different foreign policy factions, the work record of Dennis Ross from Oslo Accord negotiator to WINEP associate, the centrality of uranium refining in U.S./Iran relations, the resurgence of the Arab League and the National Intelligence Council appointment saga of Chas Freeman.
