Lifelong Neocon Activist Ken Adelman Endorses Barack Obama

Lending some credibility to our thoughts on Obama possibly green lighting an Israeli strike on Iran, self described "lifelong neocon activist," Kenneth Adelman has endorsed Barack Obama for president of the United States.

Adelman was one of the major proponents of the Iraq War. He wrote two articles published in the Washington Post titled "Cakewalk In Iraq" and "'Cakewalk' Revisited". In the articles he argued that the war in Iraq would be a "cakewalk" and that U.S. soldiers would be greeted with "Sweets and Flowers".

Kenneth Adelman also was a strong defender of Bush's "stay the course" approach.

Oddly enough, Ken Adleman did not make the list of 36 Jews who shaped the 2008 Presidential election as published by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.

I think it is ironic that the neocons, who pushed for the Iraq war, drummed out of the republican party anyone who did not accept their war. They also welcomed as friends anyone like Christopher Hitchens or Joe Lieberman who supported the war regardless of their views on everything else.

Now, we have this neocon dumping the republicans for Obama who was against the war from the start.

I agree with Obama that we should never had entered the war. But I hope the republican rank and file will finally see the neocons for who they. They are nothing more than socialists with an aggressive stance on a single foreign policy issue. They used the republicans to push their issue, helped destroy the party and are now seeking to latch onto the democrats.

They will support the democrats domestic policies so long as the dems support their one foreign policy issue which apparently Obama has assured them he does.
