That is a silly point O Economist (the best magazine there is). ("And a lot of the people whom the authors assign to the Israel lobby, such as former Clinton administration officials like Dennis Ross and Martin Indyk, would probably have conniptions on being called neocons"). It is not whether they are neo-conservative or not, but they have been staunch supporters of Israel, and Indyk worked for the Israeli lobby, and both were (and Ross still is) affiliated with the Washington Institute which was founded with close links with AIPAC. But I agree with this: "Their own book feels like an attempt to absolve America of responsibility for a decision it took by, and for, itself."
