This new "surge" option for the Iraq War in early 2007 comes from a group of generals at the American Enterprise Institute. More on "adjunct scholar" at AEI , Michael Ledeen.
correction: Donald Kagan is a founding member of PNAC. Fred Kagan and Robert Kagan are his sons. Donald and Fred both signed the famous "Rebuilding America's Defenses" document at PNAC. The neoconservative think tank Project for the New American Century wrote this “blueprint” for the “creation of a ‘global Pax Americana'” --- calling for global war for total hegemony, starting with Iraq.
Fred also thinks Rumsfeld needed to spend MORE money and expand the military MORE. Click on this link and you will probably find a link to the Scooter Libby Defense Fund.
Robert Kagan was also with Carnegie Endownment for International Peace. Heh-heh.
People involved in the 2000 PNAC report: Vice President Cheney, Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, Cheney Chief of Staff I. Lewis Libby, Undersecretary of State John Bolton, Undersecretary of Defense Dov Zakheim, and author Eliot Cohen.
Well, who is AEI? American Enterprise Institute is a spinoff of the Pew Charitable Trust, the family of J. Howard Pew (1882-1971). Pew was founder of Sun Oil (Sunoco). (important Ledeen quote at bottom)
doesn't Pew Charitable Trust fund a lot of Left Wing TV documentaries.
In the 1930s, J. Howard Pew was on the American Liberty League’s Advisory Council and its Executive Committee. He also made donations to the League ($20,000), the Sentinels of the Republic ($5,000) and the Crusaders ($4,000). Other Pew family members also donated generously, particularly to the Sentinels of the Republic.
Well, American Liberty League was behind the Bankers' plot to oust the United States government of FDR by military force and install a fascist military government modeled after Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
Lurking in the background behind the plot to oust FDR was the American Liberty League, a pro-business think-tank and ultra-right wing lobby group. Its treasurer was Jerry MacGuire’s boss, Grayson Murphy, a leading J.P. Morgan broker. One of its top donors was Robert Clark, who also tried to recruit General Smedley Butler into the conspiracy to oust President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Failing to physically beat labor into submission the fascist turned to legal tactics such as the anti-union right to work law. The law is still highly regarded in right wing circles today, but few know that it was first sponsored by the fascist group, Christian America in the early 1940s.69 The forces behind the Christian American group were wealthy Texans tied to the Kirby family. Christian America was formed by Vance Muse after the death of Kirby. Both Kirby and Muse had a long history of opposing the New Deal and supporting racism:
