If you’re a Fred Kaplan fan (and who isn’t, really?) his diavlog with Bob Wright this week is pretty fantastic. I liked this section in particular where he really lays out the machinations behind the Bush Administration’s foreign policy. Rumsfeld and Cheney weren’t neocons, he notes, but they used those ideas when it was convenient to sell the Iraq war.
His book, Daydream Believers: How a Few Grand Ideas Wrecked American Power, sounds pretty good as well.
