Tom Schaller alerts us to the fact that today is the tenth anniversary of the Project for a New American Century’s statement of principles. All that has, naturally, worked out beautifully.

The actual statement is fairly useless propaganda. If you want a pretty decent “in their own words” statement of the neoconservative foreign policy agenda, I’d go back to the slightly older Bill Kristol / Bob Kagan collaboration “Toward a Neo-Reaganite Foreign Policy” which lays out the argument that, among other things, a foreign policy that creates a lot of dangerous crises will be politically helpful to Republicans. Charles Krauthammer’s 1991 essay “The Unipolar Moment” and his 2002 followup “The Unipolar Moment Revisited” are also key texts.
