Other PNAC/Neo-con Exposure Sites

There are a number of other sites devoted to explaining, critiquing, and exposing the Project for the New American Century, and it's long past time that they are acknowledged here.

Of course, there's the aforementioned "Neocon 101" feature from the Christian Science Monitor, which is an excellent (and relatively even-handed) primer.

PNAC Revealed has collected biographical pages for each of the PNAC signatories, as well as a bunch of articles, including some that aren't linked to here. While the background of the editor seems to be politically left-of-center, that slant doesn't show up much -- the site is primarily a compilation of original sources.

TVNewsLies, which is sort of a very excited, left-wing web tabloid, has compiled a page of links to PNAC-related articles and sites.

The Four Reasons, also apparently left-leaning and Democrat-oriented (though calmer than TVNewsLies), has a good page of links to info about a dozen or so of the PNAC core group, and a page of a lot of links to info about Leo Strauss, a purported "godfather" of the neoconservative ideology. I'm a little confused because they have a list of think tanks, which I think is supposed to be a list of neocon think tanks, but which includes the Cato Institute, as well as the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Cato is libertarian, not neoconservative -- the president and chairman co-authored an article opposing neocons in July -- and back in April, Joseph Cirincione fron the Carnegie Endowment was on NPR opposing PNAC. It's possible that the list is supposed to be think tanks on both sides of the's not clear, which is why I'm confused. ;-)

A site I just discovered called Post 9-11 Timeline has a decent page of PNAC-related links, along with a number of other feature pages designed to "do our best to provide you with all the information you need to know in a post-September 11th America." They have an intense intro page that features a rapid-fire presentation of images from the past two years accompanied by rapid-fire music. It's not cheery, but it's quite entrancing.

Wikipedia, a free, openly-editable encyclopedia, has an entry for the PNAC, which has quite a few helpful links, and provides a pretty straightforward overview. I take issue with the contention there that the PNAC is "right-wing" -- there's not much that's legitimately conservative about the PNAC's embrace of government power and growth, and neither pre-emptive war or "liberating" foreign countries are right-wing any more than they are left-wing tendencies.

Feel free to post further resources in the comments area of this entry.

Empire Builders: Neoconservatives and their blueprint for US power

It appears that the Christian Science Monitor has put together the best journalistic primer to the neoconservative movement -- in other words, the parents and children of the Project for the New American Century. Upon initial examination, this would seem to be a strong candidate for "hottest resource" in the category of surface-level introductions to the world of the PNAC and beyond.

Empire Builders: Neoconservatives and their blueprint for US power

It features profiles and photos of the top dozen players in the modern movement: Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Lewis Libby, John Bolton, Elliot Abrams, Robert Kagan, Michael Ledeen, William Kristol, and Frank Gaffney, Jr.. They also have a Neocon 101 page, with the most basic questions answered; an "Are You a Neocon?" interactive quiz; analysis Q & A from neocon Max Boot and foreign policy expert Walter Russel Mead; a pop-up timeline of U.S foreign policy since 1783; a collection of short quotes from neocon figures; and a page of links to neocon thinktanks and key documents (our main target, the PNAC, made the top of that list).

It's clear, succinct, journalistic (not editorial), and from a source which is not known for being especially liberal, or liberal at all as far as I know. In other words, it's probably the best location going for introducing this bunch of issues to someone.

Of course, you might want to send them right here to this entry, so that they can see that the CSMonitor focus area comes out of an atmosphere of concern that goes well beyond that one publication. Their web area doesn't seem to have links or references to other critical or investigative resources related to the PNAC -- or things like Rep. Ron Paul's fantastic "Neo-conned" speech.
