The Neocons, who like to concentrate in little war-drumming hubs like the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, are coming out of the woodwork announcing to the world their intentions to vote for Hillary.
When reading the names, you’re gonna need to deploy your (Coincidence Detector).
From Politico (“GOP foreign policy elites flock to Clinton”):
Two former senior officials from the George W. Bush administration tell POLITICO that they will cast a ballot for Clinton over Trump. They are Stephen Krasner, a Stanford University professor who served as the State Department’s director of policy planning from 2005 to 2007, and David Gordon, a senior advisor at the Eurasia Group who was Krasner’s successor in that post, which provides strategic thinking.
Also saying he would choose Clinton over Trump is Reuel Marc Gerecht, a former CIA case officer and influential neoconservative writer for The Weekly Standard. Gerecht, a senior fellow with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, has been a harsh critic of Obama’s foreign policy, opposing last summer’s nuclear deal with Iran and arguing for “war” in Syria.
But given a choice between her and Trump, Gerecht said in an email, “I will vote for Clinton.”
I sense a pattern here, but I can’t quite place it.
