The Newt American Century


Newt Gingrich is a senior fellow at the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) which emerged as one of the leading architects of the government's public policy during George W. Bush presidency. More than twenty AEI alumni and visiting scholars and fellows served either in a Bush administration policy post or on one of the government's many panels and commissions. AEI rents office space to the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), one of the leading voices that pushed the Bush administration's plan for "regime change" through war in Iraq. While the PNAC has gone dormant and is nowadays keeping a low profile, a rebranded version of the project was recently launched by Bill Kristoll under the name of Foreign Policy Initiative.

Did someone say partay?

  1. They may be scattering like roaches in a bright light at this time but they won't go away. They rebrand, retool, reinvent themselves and forget the past. The past is past, they tell us. We have to look forward toward the future. So we repeat the mistakes of the past. And through ideology, which has never been tested, and never can be, it all being an amorphous dream, the old attitudes strive to shape the future.

    PNAC is dead. Long live the Foreign Policy Initiative!
