Progressive Website Misses Obama's NeoCon Appointment

One might expect a progressive website to note the appointment of neoconservative as President Obama's Special Middle East & Iran Adviser. The region warrants considerable mention in the Project for the New American Century paper "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century." It served as Bush's bloody playbook for international security.

But ThinkProgress chose not to share what Bloomberg, the Financial Times and Haaretz reported. Dennis Ross will become the President's top adviser for zones where PNAC'ers recommend making more war. This lack of attention is magnified by Ross' service as a trust advisory board member for the I. Lewis Libby Defense Fund.
