Neo-Cons Still Busy on Iran
Neo-Cons Still Busy on Iran
Jim Lobe

While no doubt demoralized, the neo-conservative hawks at American Enterprise Institute (AEI) will be continuing their efforts for a major U.S. confrontation with Iran. Theyve scheduled an all-day briefing on The Imam Returned: Thirty Years of Revolution in Iran for January 30, no doubt featuring the recommendations of last Septembers Bipartisan Policy Center report (signed by Dennis Ross) that I called a roadmap to war in a post in October. The two main authors (and graduates of Doug Feiths Office of Special Plans) of the report, AEIs Michael Rubin (who has denied it is a roadmap to war) and Michael Makovsky will be presenting, although the featured speaker is Jeffrey Gedmin, an AEI alumnus and the head of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty who bore major responsibility for that heavily Likudnik Prague Conference on Democracy and Security in June 2007. Given my persona non grata status at AEI, I will unfortunately not be permitted to attend, but, coming ten days after Obamas inauguration, Im sure it will be the first big Iran-bashing event of the Obama era...http://www.ips.org/blog/jimlobe/?p=209

1. Neo-cons want a war? Then enlist.
