History will ascribe this shift to the neoconservatives, who, fortunately, have long passed their apogee.
In the meantime, it is encouraging to see that a growing number of folks on the right joining the Bull Moose in our belief that the Pentagon and its Military Industrial Complex are out of control, and must be stopped before they permanently undermine the national defense.
