Having a brain freeze moment.. need help.

Could somebody please tell/remind me what the name of the group was that Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz were all a part of in the 90s that called for the invasion of Iraq?

Having a 'discussion' with a republican who keeps going back to the old standard of me being a big spending liberal.. wanting to point out Bushs failed policies that drove us into where we are today .. but having a brain freeze on the name of this group!

PLEASE HELP!
LOL

EDIT :

Youre all right!
THANK YOU EVERYONE!

3. PNAC

Project for the New American Century. Rather 'imperial'-sounding name, isn't it?

7. The best part is that their website...

 

...is still live:

http://www.newamericancentury.org/

You can even still go to this page:

http://www.newamericancentury.org/defensenationalsecurity.htm

And download the pdf "Rebuilding America's Defenses."
That's the "new Pearl Harbor" document.

Enjoy!

8. Well, actually the best part is that the PNAC website hasn't posted any new "news" since 2006.

13. I know what you are talking about...they did have a particular name

But I can't remember it either. Damn! It was a rather small group of people...Mary Matalin was one of them.
