PNAC down the drain

(Canscene) — “This account has been suspended.  Please contact the billing/support department as soon as possible.”  So reads the response to the URL for Project for the New American Century, the notorious think tank founded in 1997 by such deeply entrenched Republicans as Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dan Quayle, Paul Wolfowitz and L. Lewis Libby.

Earlier this year, PNAC was reported as having but one office employee remaining obviously due to so many of its leading supporters having met with disgrace or demotion. However, in its time PNAC’s capacity for doing mischief was considerable.

Some journalists have even suggested that PNAC hatched the 9/11 strike, a highly improbable theory but all the same linked in spirit to what must have been joy to the hawks ready to launch an ill-considered venture into Afghanistan and an illegal war on Iraq.

The resulting shambles is evidence of a think tank that seems to have been peopled by throwbacks to frontier days.

No sane person should regret this tanking of a sleazy gang of plotters.
