Muravchik on “Neo-Cons”

Muravchik on “Neo-Cons” August 31, 2003

Joshua Muravchik has an entertaining critique of the current wave of “neo-con” spotting in the current issue of Commentary . He cites absurdly distorted newspaper articles claiming that the Bush administration is “rife” with neo-con Straussians, which then go on to mangle Strauss beyond recognition. Muravchik is less convincing when he claims that there are whisps of anti-Semitism infecting attacks on neo-conservatism, but the article as a whole helps put these attacks into perspective.
