I just found this, and it’s great. “The Guns of 17th Street”, a review of Present Dangers: Crisis and Opportunity in American Foreign and Defense Policy edited by Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan published in the spring 2001 issue of The National Interest. The author is Jonathan Clarke, a former British diplomat and conservative foreign policy analyst who, as you’ll see, was hating on neoconservatives before it was cool.

UPDATE: FYI, both The Weekly Standard and the American Enterprise Institute are located on 17th Street here in sunny Washington, DC. Clarke’s book, co-written with Stefan Harper, America Alone: The Neo-Conservatives and the Global Order is very good but a bit dated at this point.
