Leo Strauss and the Politics of American Empire by Anne Norton - Reviewed by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

Along these lines Norton makes quick work of Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan, two influential neoconservatives who, among other things, edited a book on foreign policy called Present Dangers. "Present Dangers is not a conservative work," Norton writes. "The regard for tradition, for the slow growth of custom that Burke commended, the respect for long-established practices are abandoned here. In their place is an enthusiasm for innovation, for intervention, for utopias. Nothing can wait, everything must be done now. No one need be consulted…."

A Neocon By Any Other Name by Justin Raimondo

Gorin's line of guff – that to attack the neocons (there, I said it! And isn't that just tough!) is to attack "the Jews" – has been marketed before, to little avail. Neoconservatism has been the subject of too many books and scholarly essays, not to mention articles and documentaries in the popular media – including one self-regarding orgy of neocon narcissism, broadcast on PBS, in which the participants repeatedly referred to themselves as "neocons" and "neoconservatives" almost as many times as they described themselves as "intellectuals."

Etiquette in the Use of ‘Neocon’ by Paul Gottfried

If one can restrict any mention of the term in questions to those who apply it favorably, it will be difficult for any critic to call a neocon a neocon, except through circumlocution. That way the friends and members of this group will always bring up the recognized designation in a positive sense; by contrast, their enemies will be groping for labels that never quite apply to what they intend to designate.

Is Iran Next? by Tom Barry

One, that U.S. Middle East policy is being directed by neoconservative ideologues variously employed, coordinated or sanctioned by Feith’s Pentagon office. And two, that U.S. Middle East policy is too closely aligned with that of Israeli hardliners close to U.S. neoconservatives.

Neo-Con Spies IV - Ayoon wa Azan

What is more dangerous than neo-cons spying for Israel is that some officials hijacking the U.S. foreign policy and direct it to serve the Israeli interests . . .
This is what probably led the real conservative Patrick Buchanan to say, "What the U.S. needs in the Middle East is a policy made in the U.S. not in Tel Aviv, AIPAC or the American Enterprise Institute (AEI)."

None Dare Call Them Neo-cons by Ahmed Amr

The catastrophic success of the neo-cons in escalating America’s unprofitable conflicts in the Middle East to a war of civilizations should create serious questions in serious minds about the national origin of their neo-conservative ideology. Enough people have already noticed that their agenda is not an American agenda.

Whatever label they choose for marketing their policies will not change their basic mission to promote Israeli interests. A neo-con is a neo-con is a neo-con. And a Likudnik is a Likudnik is a Likudnik. And they are all one and the same.

Mark Dankof Book Review: An Enduring Love by Empress Farah Pahlavi of Iran

Lutheran pastor and SARTRE BATR correspondent Mark Dankof, once a youthful American expatriate in Iran during his father's service as an American military logistical advisor to the Shah's Imperial Iranian Air Force (IIAF), reviews exiled Empress Farah Pahlavi's poignant memoirs, entitled An Enduring Love (Miramax Books, 2004, 447 pages.).

Baghdad Year Zero by Naomi Klein

The Iraqi Year Zeroists made natural allies for the White House neoconservatives: Chalabi’s seething hatred of the Baathist state fit nicely with the neocons’ hatred of the state in general, and the two agendas effortlessly merged. Together, they came to imagine the invasion of Iraq as a kind of Rapture: where the rest of the world saw death, they saw birth—a country redeemed through violence, cleansed by fire.

NeoCons and the Blue Bolsheviks by Martin Kelly

Anyone who is still proud to call themselves a Dutch Reagan or Margaret Thatcher anti-Communist needs to oppose these people. These guys have nothing new or exciting to offer, only war, ideology and then some more of the same.

Neoconservatives called the Spanish people cowards after the Madrid bombing. David Frum calls conservatives who oppose his beliefs ‘unpatriotic’. Is all of this familiar?

Neo-Con Spies III - Jihad Al Khazen

The neo-cons are neither Democrats nor Republicans, but shift from one party to the other for the service of Israel, on the account of America. After the United States was the most popular among Arabs, the constant American question has become today: why do they hate us? . . . The time for diplomacy is at an end; it is time for a free Iran, free Syria and free Lebanon," meaning it is time for America to launch a war on these countries, for the service of Israel.

Neoconservatism: An Alien Ideology - Interview with Karen Kwiatkowski

Scott Horton interviews Lt. Col. (ret.) Karen Kwiatkowski about the lies that justified the Iraq war, the liars who told them, why they wanted to invade Iraq, the failures of the 9/11 Commission Report, and the election. Check out Scott's other interviews with prominent libertarian and antiwar personalities. Interview conducted Sept. 18, 2004.

The Yes Men by Anthony Lappe

A decade later, the “neocon” posse finally got into power, launching one of the biggest bonehead maneuvers since Hitler thought Stalingrad would be a great place to visit in the winter.

“There’s a sort of madness at the heart of the American neo-conservative movement,” says “Louise,” a female Yes Man. “I’d call it a cult.”

The Horror of Neoconservatism by Martin Kelly

Writers like Pat Buchanan and Paul Craig Roberts are right to label the adherents of the neoconservative movement as ‘Jacobins’, fanatics for power, spiritual descendants of the upper classes who directed the reign of terror following the French Revolution, willing to damn with a spot of ink, willing to trash the bona fides of those who speak against them. As a recanted and repenting neoconservative, I suppose that makes me a Jacobin too.

Neo-Con Spies II - Jihad Al Khazen

Perle was subject to financial questionings throughout his professional life, for receiving a consultant salary for the Israeli Tamaris SA Group which produces arms in 1981, and receiving millions of dollars in 2004 from Hollinger, via his Likudnik friend Conrad Black.

It would be funny for Perle to fall for the last time in a financial affair, after he has worked for Israel for over four decades, and helped in guiding the American policy to harm the American interests, and ended up in Iraq with thousands of casualties from young Americans, without having a cause to defend; I continue tomorrow.

Bin Laden's Useful Idiots by Patrick J. Buchanan

ACPC wants Bush to cut Putin adrift in the name of democracy. These are the same ideologues who engineered the war to "democratize" Iraq and prevailed on Bush to declare "world democratic revolution" the overarching goal of his foreign policy.

These neoconservatives are demanding that Putin negotiate with the Chechens rebels. Many favor a NATO presence in Chechnya along the lines of the NATO missions in Bosnia and Kosovo.

Pillaging Iraq in pursuit of a neocon utopia by Naomi Klein

The final blow to the neocon dream came in the weeks before the handover. The White House and the CPA were rushing to get the U.N. Security Council to pass a resolution endorsing their handover plan. They had twisted arms to give the top job to former CIA agent Iyad Allawi, a move that will ensure that Iraq becomes, at the very least, the coaling station for U.S. troops that Jay Garner originally envisioned. But if major corporate investors were going to come to Iraq in the future, they would need a stronger guarantee that Bremer’s economic laws would stick. There was only one way of doing that: the Security Council resolution had to ratify the interim constitution, which locked in Bremer’s laws for the duration of the interim government.

The Neo-cons Threaten Syria by SAUL LANDAU and FARRAH HASSEN

Ironically, when Middle East politics take anti-Israeli turns, the United States preaches "democracy." In fact, Washington's "appointocracies" in Iraq and Afghanistan rule through US power, not popular mandate. Washington's verbal "commitment" to democracy has led "the Arab street" not only in Damascus -- to become highly skeptical of US motives.

Neo-Con Spies by Jihad Al Khazen - Al-Hayat

Douglas Feith supervised the OSP as well as the DoD's Near East and South Asia bureau (NESA); the first was headed by Abraham Shulsky, and the second by William Luti. Among others who worked with them was Michael Robin, a Middle East "expert" who belongs to the same gang, and who came via the neo-cons' nest, American Enterprises; there is also David Shenker of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), as well as Michael Makovsky, whose brother David Makovsky is a WINEP member, and former editor-in-chief of the Likudnik Jerusalem Post.

Indict the War Party For treason by Justin Raimondo

The neocons, as I have noted before, aren't conservatives who want to preserve the American tradition of constitutional, limited government, but neo-authoritarians, who not only call for draconian restrictions and a general rollback of constitutional restraints on the power of government, but exhibit the commissar-like mentality of Soviet era ideologues, intent on policing every public discussion for evidence of ideological impurity.

It’s Almost Scapegoat Time by Steven LaTulippe

Clearly, the neocons manipulated America into this conflict, and they must see the disaster looming. But they are also veritable political Houdinis. I have been astounded by their military incompetence, but simultaneously awed by their political maneuverability.

My frustration with neocons? Their un-conservativism by E.J. DIONNE Jr.

I know that many of my conservative and neocon friends despise what's happening in Russia and privately bemoan the mistakes Bush has made. But they have thrown their lot in with the administration on the theory that if Bush loses, all they consider important in foreign policy will be lost.

The caricature that came true by Ian Gilmour

"I never quite understand what people mean by this neocon thing". This was the astonishing admission Tony Blair made to James Naughtie a year after Saddam Hussein had gone. At least since September 11 2001, the neocons, who were well described by Colin Powell in a conversation with Jack Straw as "fucking crazies", and who comprise Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Bolton, Libby (Cheney's chief of staff), Abrams, Perle and others, have dictated the foreign policy of the Bush administration. They are, to coin a phrase, "the axis of evil" in Washington. Yet as late as 2004 the British prime minister did not "quite understand" about them.

What Does Francke Project - Iraq's New Face or Neocon Face? by Sarah Whalen

Well, score one goal for the neocons. That is a tough thing to pull off. See, international law doesn’t usually allow that. Having a US citizen represent a foreign, supposedly sovereign state in the United States is very, very, very unusual. A real rarity. So much an obvious conflict of interest is it that, Franckely (oops!), the US government should refuse to accept her credentials unless she immediately relinquishes her US citizenship. And even then, shouldn’t there be well some kind of waiting period? A decent interval? For the sake of appearances?

Neo-Cons Knee Deep in Caucasus Provocations by Jeffrey Steinberg

Indicative of the actual agenda of the ACPC was a Sept. 9, 2004 New York Times op-ed by board member Richard Pipes. He wrote, under the provocative title, "Give the Chechens a Land of Their Own," that Russian President Vladimir Putin was dead wrong when he equated the terrorist attack in Beslan, North Ossetia with the 9@nd11 attacks on New York and Washington.

Pipes threatened: "Until and unless Moscow follows the French example, the terrorist menace will not be alleviated.... Russia, the largest country on Earth, can surely afford to let go of a tiny colonial dependency, and ought to do so without delay."

Putin, the Patriot - That's why the neocons hate him - and love Chechen terrorists by Justin Raimondo

The danger of the anti-Putin crusade is that it represents an alliance of the neocons and the "humanitarian interventionist" left.

The neocons supported that war, too, just as they have taken advantage of every war –except the FBI's war on Israeli spies – to pursue their agenda on all fronts.

The neocons, far from being believers in decentralism and regional autonomy, want one and only one great centralizing force in world politics, and that is the one headquartered in Washington, D.C.

Iraq's bridge too far by Arnaud de Borchgrave

Off the record conversations with intelligence chiefs in five major European countries -- each with multiple assets in Iraq -- showed remarkable agreement on these points:

The neo-con objectives for restructuring Iraq into a functioning model democracy were a bridge too far. They were never realistic.

Faster, Neocons! Kill! Kill! by Martin Kelly

It all used to mean something, boys, but Iraq has proved its futility. It’s time for all American conservatives to see these guys for what they are, hardened ideologues of empire who have no compunction about how much blood, or whose blood, they spill in the process of getting what they want, when they want, where they want it.

Neoconservative Hypocrisy Over Beslan

Neoconservative Hypocrisy Over Beslan Much of the neoconservative critique of "terrorism" is phony and thoroughly hypocritical. In their pursuit of "national greatness" for the US, the neocons are much more concerned with ends than means.

Neocons go bananas over AIPAC spy scandal by Justin Raimondo

It's not out of the question that the neocons – or some of them – could switch to the Democrats in desperation, especially if the White House is deaf to their entreaties to spike the investigation into the AIPAC spy nest. This "entryist" strategy – derived from their Trotskyist heritage – is yet another arrow in the neocons' quiver, and one they have launched before with much success.

The neocons are going into overdrive, revving up their propaganda machine to cover up, or at best minimize the damage done by the AIPAC spy scandal.

Powell Enlists with the Neocons by David Corn

My view is that if there are benefits from his tenure at the State, they are outweighed by an obvious cost: how he helps the Bush bunch stay in power and, thus, enables the neoconservatives.

Next Stop: Iran by Mike Whitney

Iran has not been targeted for its tyrannical government or for it abysmal human rights record. Rather, it sits on 9% of the world’s oil and perhaps as much as 40% of the world’s natural gas. Add to this the fact that vital pipeline routes cross through the region and a case for war can be understood. (though not justified) Iran’s potential prosperity also threatens neighboring Israel’s regional dominance, thus, the strong impulse among neocons to push for a confrontation. (Whatever the influence of the neocons in the current administration, I do not see this as the primary impetus for war)

David Brooks Redefines “Conservatism.” Guess Who’s Not Included. by Sam Francis

In Mr. Brooks' view, it should announce, as the front cover of the magazine proclaims in displaying his article, "The Era of Small Government is Over." The future of the Republican Party, Mr. Brooks tells us, lies in "progressive conservatism," which gets us back to the "Republican tradition" of "strong government."

Highjacking Catastrophe: a Review

The performance of the U.S. corporate commercial news media after 9/11 has been the most profound and dangerous failure of journalism in my lifetime.

The film concentrates on two major topics: The neoconservative agenda for U.S. domination of the world, which was created long before 9/11, and the selling of that agenda to the U.S. public after 9/11.

Portrait of a neo-con

Typical of other neo-conservatives, Feith in public statements has not made reference to his own Zionist convictions. Rather in congressional testimony and in op-eds in major media, Feith has instead argued that US policy in the Middle East should be guided by concerns about human rights and democracy.

The ominous backlash of an attack against Iran by David Hirst

For the neocons, overthrowing Saddam was to have been nothing if not regional in purpose, the opening phase of a grand design to "transform"' the entire Middle East. But such are the region's cross-border dynamics that success was never going to be assured even in one country unless it embraced others too.

Mark Dankof's Open Invitation to America: Connect-The-Dots With Dr. Hassan El-Naijar and Al

Mark Dankof discusses the game of Connect-The-Dots. It consists of reading the right sources, putting the pieces of the puzzle together, and then analyzing the constructed mosaic. Mark invites American readers in particular to play the game with the right sources, in order to understand what has happened to the American Republic, the fraudulent American Presidential elections, and the coming expansion of War and Draft being slated for the people of the United States and the world--all on behalf of America's 51st state: Ariel Sharon's Zionist State of Israel.

In particular, readers of SARTRE's BATR are invited to regular consultation and fair acquaintance with Dr. Hassan El-Naijar, an Arab-American in Dalton, Georgia, and his news site Al The unfiltered news it brings on the Middle East, the plight of the Palestinians, and the future of all concerned is essential--and sobering.

Richard Perle's Nemesis by Martin Kelly

Over the course of his involvement with the company, Perle was paid a total of 5 million dollars. If Perle is called upon to repay this sum, it will be very interesting to see who is backing him up.

Deconstructing the Neocons bt Alan Bock

Over time, perhaps driven by a conviction that protection of the state of Israel is a preeminent concern, neoconservatives narrowed their range of interests, coming to focus on foreign policy. However, "Even on foreign policy, modern neoconservatism focuses narrowly. It pays scant attention to the world beyond defense budgets and select areas of the world where its ideology is applicable."

Franklin Affair Blows Neo-Con Moles at DOD by Jeffrey Steinberg

Virtually every member of the neo-con grouping is reported to be currently under investigation for espionage, fabrication of intelligence, and other treachery against the United States. Sources, for example, have identified Harold Rhode, a longtime protégé of British intelligence's Dr. Bernard Lewis, and a close collaborator of Ledeen, as the target of a separate espionage probe, involving his passing of U.S. national security secrets to Israel, while he was in Baghdad last year, as part of the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA). While in Baghdad, Rhode practically lived out of the home and office of Iraqi National Congress head, Ahmed Chalabi.

Neocons Blast Bush's Inaction On 'Spy' Affair by MARC PERELMAN

In an indication of their growing estrangement with the Bush administration,
neoconservatives are slamming the White House for failing to stop what they describe as an antisemitic campaign to marginalize them being conducted by the CIA and the State Department.

The Chechens' American friends by John Laughland

The Washington neocons' commitment to the war on terror evaporates in Chechnya, whose cause they have made their own.

The Russian channels had far better information and images from Beslan than their western competitors. This harshness towards Putin is perhaps explained by the fact that, in the US, the leading group which pleads the Chechen cause is the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya (ACPC). The list of the self-styled "distinguished Americans" who are its members is a rollcall of the most prominent neoconservatives who so enthusastically support the "war on terror".

Neoconservatism and Espionage by Justin Raimondo

The Clean Break Gang and their willing accomplices did more than just argue on behalf of Israel's cause. If the scope of the present investigation into AIPAC is any indication, over a period of many years the Clean Breakers acted like a coherent and disciplined cell, implanted in the very heart of the U.S. government. Stealing our secrets and feeding us lies, this cabal operated a two-way transmission belt of treason – subverting our efforts to go after the real perpetrators of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and diverting attention and resources to the war against Israel's enemies, the Ba'athist regimes in Baghdad and Damascus, and the mullahs of Teheran.

The whole neoconservative movement is an act of subversion: of our republican virtues, of the moral character of our people (see Abu Ghraib), and the conservative movement itself. That top neocons in government have been exposed as foreign agents only confirms that their agenda of "national greatness," neo-imperialism, and perpetual war is un-American through-and-through and to the core.

I. Lewis (“Scooter”) Libby: The Nexus of Washington’s Neocon Network by Richard H. Curtiss

Only a few years ago, Libby was equally famous—or infamous—for his 18-year collaboration with Marc Rich. In 1985, shortly after Rich jumped bail and fled to Switzerland to avoid prosecution on charges of racketeering, wire fraud, income tax evasion and illegal oil trading, Libby became the fugitive’s personal attorney.

A Shabby and Sinister Case for War by Paul Craig Roberts

Anyone following the Larry Franklin Pentagon spy story is keenly aware of the solidarity binding neoconservatives, AIPAC, Israel’s rightwing Likud Party, the US invasion of Iraq, and the war drums neocons are beating against Iran.

Behind the AIPAC Probe, Neocons Seen Battling Rivals by Jefferson Morley

On one side of the conflict are neoconservative officials in the Pentagon who favor bold U.S. action to bring down Iran's theocratic government. On the other side, some see intelligence officials who view the neocons as too close to Israel.

In his piece, Blanche quotes Duncan Clarke of the American University's School of International Service in Washington as saying Israeli economic espionage has long "infuriated the US intelligence community, especially the FBI and the Customs Service." Duncan goes on to say that Israeli spying on the United States has "left a legacy of distrust" in the U.S. intelligence community.

The Bush Neocons and Israel by KATHLEEN and BILL CHRISTISON

The issue we are dealing with in the Bush administration is dual loyalties -- the double allegiance of those myriad officials at high and middle levels who cannot distinguish U.S. interests from Israeli interests, who baldly promote the supposed identity of interests between the United States and Israel, who spent their early careers giving policy advice to right-wing Israeli governments and now give the identical advice to a right-wing U.S. government, and who, one suspects, are so wrapped up in their concern for the fate of Israel that they honestly do not know whether their own passion about advancing the U.S. imperium is motivated primarily by America-first patriotism or is governed first and foremost by a desire to secure Israel's safety and predominance in the Middle East through the advancement of the U.S. imperium.

Larry Franklin: Just a Sideshow on the Road to Total War by Kurt Nimmo

Lost in the chatter about Larry Franklin is the fact the neocons and Sharon are itching to invade Iran, possibly before the election in November. “News of the investigation of Larry Franklin, a middle-level functionary working for the Wolfowitz-Feith-Luti-Shulsky clique in the Pentagon, indicates that we are now approaching a critical choice-point on the road to war with Iran, and towards a synthetic terrorism attack inside the US which would be used as an additional pretext to start such a war,” Webster Griffin Tarpley warns.

FBI painting ugly picture by Eric Margolis

The story is potentially a huge scandal and may indicate a furious power struggle between neocon supporters of Israel's far right Likud Party, who dominated the Pentagon and National Security Council, and the CIA and the state department.

Many feel these neocon ideologues arrogated to themselves the right to decide what was good for Israel and the Jewish people, even though many American Jews opposed war against Iraq.

In my view, what the neocon ideologues and their media allies have done is to inflame anti-Semitism, encourage anti-U.S. terrorism, and destabilize the entire Mideast.

Neocons Preparing the Sequel to Plan of Attack by Gordon Prather

The neo-crazies boast that if the Israelis or their paid lobbyists at the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) want to know something, all they have to do is drop by the White House and National Security Adviser Condi Rice or one of her deputies will tell them anything – literally anything – they want to know.

If Condi really tells the AIPAC crowd anything and everything they want to know, how could she have not told them the FBI was investigating them? And how could Feith not have told his former law partner, L. Marc Zell, now practicing law in Israel? And how could Richard Perle – the Prince of Darkness – not have known?

Neo Cons Under Fire by GARY LEUPP

They're what Marxists call "contradictions within the ruling class:" sharp differences within the power elite which weaken it collectively and can sometimes be exploited by those seeking radical change. It is a very good thing that the "intelligence community" is beginning to level an assault on the neocons. Their falling out has deep roots, dating to the 1980s when the CIA accurately assessed the Soviet military "threat," while the neocons (Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Frank Gaffney) wanted to grossly inflate it, to justify the massive Reagan military buildup and perhaps launch a successful World War III.

The Bush Neo-Cons and Israel by STEPHEN GREEN

If Stephen Bryen is the military technology guru in the neo-con pantheon, Michael Ledeen is currently its leading theorist, historian, scholar and writer.

Every appointment/hiring listed above involved classified work for which high-level security clearances and associated background checks by the FBI were required. When the level of the clearance is not above generic Top Secret, however, the results of that background check are only seen by the hiring authority. And in the event, if the appointee were Bryen or Ledeen and the hiring authority were Perle, Wolfowitz or Feith, the appointee(s) need not have worried about the findings of the background check.

Their dog-eat-dog world by Mazin Qumsiyeh

In March 1992, the US Defense Policy Guidance as formulated by Paul Wolfowitz and Lewis Libby (two neocons with strong Israeli ties) was leaked to The New York Times and caused a stir (including a rebuke from Senator Biden).

The document as revised by its release on 16 April 1992 was far milder, or at least careful in its language. By way of a price, the revised document included for the first time support for Zionism as a key to defence policy.

The United States is committed to the security of Israel and to maintaining the qualitative edge that is critical to Israel's security. Israel's confidence in its security and US-Israel strategic cooperation contribute to the stability of the entire region.

Threats...Danger...Fight...Fight...Fight...Fight by Bill Bonner

Conservatism is dead in America. George Bush will put the crown on his own head on Thursday and announce a reign of grandiose ambition, expansionism, recklessness and self-delusion. It makes little difference whether he wins or loses. Neither party plans to cut spending, though it is debt that threatens the republic far more than terrorism.

How Soon Will the U.S. or Israel Bomb Iran? by Steve Weissman

Now think like an American neo-conservative. You and your fellow policy wonks have struggled for years to persuade both Democrats and Republicans in Washington and successive Likkud governments in Tel Aviv to play hardball throughout the Middle East. You urged them to expand control over the world's diminishing supply of oil and to overthrow nasty regimes, especially in Iraq and Iran.

Your neo-con colleagues currently hold key posts in the Pentagon and elsewhere in Washington, but your policies and performance have made a hash of Iraq, causing President Bush to turn increasingly to other advisors. Worse, Mr. Bush could lose the November election amidst a burgeoning spy scandal that widely paints neo-cons, whether Christian or Jewish, as not-to-be-trusted Israeli agents.

A Stinging Penalty Kick to the Neocons From Iraq’s Soccer Team by Sarah Whalen

These Iraqis are outraged Bush used the tragedy the neocons brought to their country for a political commercial. And they will not belittle their own, uncountable dead for the unfortunate killing of the “war tourist.” Unable to be heard in their own country, they have taken a stand abroad.


The corporate big media is constrained from calling it like it is: Mr. Feith is a dually loyal American Jew long closely associated with the Israeli Likud Party, Ariel Sharon, and the settlers movement and with numerous intertwining connections to the Israeli-Jewish lobby in Washington which has in fact pushed his fortunes as their own. He was one of the most active advocates for blowing up the 'Oslo Peace Process' and for arming Israel with the latest advanced American weapons systems. And he is thought to be one of the strongest advocates for doing what Ariel Sharon has publicly called for -- attacking Iran after taking care of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Israeli spies in Pentagon are heroes to the neocons by Justin Raimondo

The U.S. and Israel are, after all, separate countries, and, as much as America's Likudniks don't like to acknowledge it, the two nations have separate and often conflicting interests, no matter how many times Congress votes to kiss Ariel Sharon's butt while stuffing another few million into his g-string. Jonathan Pollard stole the crown jewels of the American intelligence community and Israel sold them to the Soviet Union in exchange for an influx of Soviet Jews – who are now being supported with American tax dollars in the form of $3 billion in annual tribute to Tel Aviv.

Spy Probe Scans Neocons by Jim Lobe

The burgeoning scandal over claims that a Pentagon official passed highly classified secrets to a Zionist lobby group appears to be part of a much broader set of FBI and Pentagon investigations of close collaboration between prominent U.S. neo-conservatives and Israel dating back some 30 years.
