Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
People like John Bolton, the Cheney swarm etc who, if not actually in Government, always know they can use the Permanent Shadow Establishment of Defence, Intelligence and Security assets to effect policy.

Obama has been far too indulgent of Republicans of all stripes, including the delusional fanatics at PNAC, to pull them up sharply now.

Who benefits ? Follow the money. Always. Look under any rock in DC and you'll see a Halliburton subsidiary scuttling for cover, but always rattling a tin for yet another contract to shoot a few gooks here and there to promote Pax AmeriKKKa. Convergence of interests.
