From Words Into War

Joe Scott, over at The Body Politic, has an good commentary today on the "unsheathed" neoconservatism of W's second administration:

Bush officials, following the president’s rousing inaugural address promoting God, freedom and liberty, deny a significant shift in U.S. foreign policy. But skepticism in the U.S. and abroad is rampant. The lack of specifics or mention of either terrorism or Iraq, is now less puzzling. W, in retrospect, and under the radar screen, has quietly been shifting from a prime focus on terrorism, which defined his presidency from 9/11 through the 2004 election, into a new priority - a more aggressive and radical foreign policy. The new global mantra is a redefinition of tyranny as an enemy threatening freedom and global security.
