From Perry, neocon tea leaves

Rick Perry has yet to launch his 2012 presidential campaign, but his meeting in Austin last week, reported in National Review and elsewhere, with a set of Republican foreign policy hands seems to offer a glimpse at his emergent platform.

Perry reportedly met former Bush aides Doug Feith and William Luti, both strong internal backers of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Daniel Fata, whose article today is headed, "Why Iraq Still Matters."

The names of invitees to the Wednesday briefing — and impressions from attendees at the meeting —suggested to GOP foreign policy hands that Perry will likely stand on the hawkish side of a foreign policy divide inside the Republican Party.
