Where Neocons Go to Hide

A few notorious neocons have created a new organization called The Foreign Policy Initiative. They are promoting US involvement in the world. Spreading freedom. The board: Bill Kristol, Robert Kagan. Far as I can tell these guys are advocating for the military industrial complex and their pocket books.

Here's how the FPI website puts their goals:

The Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) is a newly formed, non-profit, non-partisan organization intending to qualify as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code that promotes:

•continued U.S. engagement--diplomatic, economic, and military—in the world and rejection of policies that would lead us down the path to isolationism;

•robust support for America’s democratic allies and opposition to rogue regimes that threaten American interests;

•the human rights of those oppressed by their governments, and U.S. leadership in working to spread political and economic freedom;

•a strong military with the defense budget needed to ensure that America is ready to confront the threats of the 21st century;

•international economic engagement as a key element of U.S. foreign policy in this time of great economic dislocation.
