Levy is exactly right.The Neocons based their Middle East policies on the expansionist Zionist policies of the Likud and via Paul Wolfowitz the appalling ultra Orwellian 1984 type philosophy of Leo Strauss. With the election of an ignorant fool as president they were able to sell him their program both for Israel and for the use of preemptive war as an instrument of US foreign policy. A venal US congress is unable to stand up to AIPAC, and the right wing media.Fox news and talk radio in particular mounted a Goebbels like propaganda campaign to sell an unnecessary Iraq war to a poorly informed US public. Apart from their foreign policy disasters they are well on the way to destroying the freedoms supposedly guaranteed in the US Constitution.Now Bush often signs a statement when signing laws saying that he is not bound by them.Fortunately they are also a grossly incompetent bunch of idiots but many innocents have died and will die before their policies collapse under their own weight.
