Just Say No ... to Empire by Karen Kwiatkowski

But empire is uniquely neoconservative, or as Claes Ryn has explained it, Jacobin. The vicious and anti-religious ideology-trumps-humanity perspective of our modern American Robispierreans is an ugly thing. And yet it remains the view from Washington.

Bob Novak mentioned again this week that Wolfowitz and presumably others in the administration do not like the term neoconservative, believing that it is just a way of being anti-Semitic. Interestingly, the topic of Novak's article is that Secretary of State Condi Rice is powerful, doesn't listen to the neoconservatives, and will be frustrating them with her intention to withdraw troops from Iraq.
