CAN'T TELL THE PLAYERS WITHOUT A PROGRAM....Confused about neocons vs. realists vs. imperialists vs. national greatness conservatives? State vs. Defense vs. Vice President? Wolfowitz vs. Cheney vs. Rumsfeld? Garner vs. Bremer?

Me too, but Juan Cole takes a stab at trying to figure out how all these different groups affected our Iraq policy and it's worth a read. I especially think it's worth noting the difference between the true neocons like Wolfowitz and the mere fellow travelers like Cheney and Rumsfeld.

There's no telling if this is how things really played out, but it does a good job of laying out the various players and trying to make some sense out of how they interacted. It's a short piece, so check it out.
