re: neoCONS mentioned below It is best not to try to conflate neoCONS with real conservatives as explained in the attachment...neoCONS have one overarching agenda-- the advancement and defense of Israel via American might and expenditure. Oddly, although Israel is by far our largest recipient of foreign aid it is a tiny country which is rich to boot. # 2 for foreign aid is Egypt-- because of Israel. # 3 is Jordan-- ditto. One-third of ALL US AID goes to Israel and Egypt. These 2 countries receive one-third of the total aid, the majority of which pays for armaments. Yet, neither is a "developing" country.

Who engendered the Iraq War?!

NeoCONS glommed on to the conservative movement because RR caused the wind to blow that way, very successfully.

They generally have little to no interest whatsoever in smaller, more efficient, LIMITED guvment or budgetary responsibility.

They simply want to manipulate America for Israel's benefit.

The PNAC cabal then surrounding Dubya said their #1 goal (well before 9/11) upon his election was taking out Saddam for Israel-- Wolfy, Perle, Feith, Libby, Elliot Abrams, Wurmser, Bolton, Fleischer, Senor)...they WROTE openly about it! Add as influences Kagan, Eliot Cohen, Robt. Kaplan, Kristol, and Krauthammer
We're now entering the fourth week of the "CSI: Benghazi" hostage crisis. That's how long an FBI forensic team has been trying to gain access in Libya to what the State Department still calls a crime scene -- the Obama administration's preferred term for the location of the first assassination of a U.S. ambassador since 1979 and the first successful al-Qaeda-backed attack on U.S. soil since the 9/11 strikes. (Our embassies and consulates are sovereign U.S. territory.)

It is perhaps not accidental that the State Department cites the need to complete the investigation as an excuse to stay silent on...
