9780976443742: Deadly Dogma: How Neoconservatives Broke the Law to Deceive America

When does Rhetoric become Wire Fraud? "Intellectual Movement" or Organized Crime Syndicate? The "Neoconservative" movement has had a profound effect on America. Neoconservative ideas of military preemption, higher military spending, and iron fisted insistence that the United States will strike and defeat nascent rivals have moved from think tanks into official doctrine. Americans have received a steady mainstream media barrage of Neoconservative analysis and viewpoints on terrorism and every aspect of US foreign policy. Neoconservatives and their policies now reign supreme in the Department of Defense, Congress and Executive Branch. Neoconservative plans to invade the Middle East, unleash "Shock and Awe" upon Iraq, undermine international law and boost the US military budget to Cold War levels are now in full implementation. There is just one problem. Most core neoconservative slogans and dogma are simply unfounded assertions with no empirical basis. Worse, the neoconservative movement has evolved into a sophisticated crime syndicate with all the trappings of a new type of mafia: protection rackets, espionage, extortion, money laundering, wire fraud and tax evasion. Deadly Dogma dives behind the scenes to answer key questions and debunk neocon propaganda. Why do neoconservatives hold international law in contempt? Why is a highly idealized and historically selective concept of Israel so important to neoconservatives, and how does it prevent them from confronting true realities in the Middle East? What is the track record on neoconservative threat assessments made in the 1980's to guide spending and policy? Does military preemption actually work? Are neoconservative ideals "Wilsonian"? Why are neoconservatives so prominent in broadcast and print news media, is it merit or payola? Deadly Dogma reviews the consequences of unchecked law-breaking by core members of the "neoconservative movement" such as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and Frank Gaffney. It checks the historical record on what they said, and what was actually true at the time. We examine the career cross-promotion of neoconservatives in the Pentagon, and brokering of military contracts in what has become America's biggest protection racket. Deadly Dogma then unveils a pro-forma indictment about how "noble lies" turned into wire fraud, influence peddling morphed into extortion, lobbying and "networking" into espionage.
