Review of Fukuyama's "America at the Crossroads"

MacBush - The Neoconservative Tragedy. By Jacob Weisberg []:

Francis Fukuyama's America at the Crossroads does the best job yet of explaining why the disaster [in Iraq] unfolded in the way it has. Fukuyama argues that the United States made the mistake of going into Iraq without preparing for a hostile occupation because of the flawed foreign-policy thinking of a small group of people called neoconservatives.

Despite his deep affiliations with different strands of the neoconservative movement, Fukuyama wrote in his 2.19.06 NYT Magazine piece that "Neoconservatism, both as a political symbol and a body of thought, has evolved into something I can no longer support."
