Elephant in the Room?

Francis Fukuyama from Johns Hopkins explains the failure of the neo-con agenda. But suprisingly misses one key point.

Number of mentions:

War - 13 counts
Terror - 3 count
Democracy - 8 counts
Jihadist - 2 counts
Regime change - 2 counts
WMD - 2 counts

"US would use its margin of power to exert a kind of "benevolent hegemony" over the rest of the world, fixing problems such as rogue states with WMD as they came up"

"Although the ominous possibility of undeterrable terrorists armed with WMD did present itself, advocates of the war wrongly conflated this with the threat presented by Iraq and with the rogue state/proliferation problem."

Elephant in the room anyone?

Oil: 0 counts
