Hard to wade through the true, not true and opinionation.
But neo conservatism is not denied by the "cabal" listed here. They admit they were social and who knows what else liberals 10+ years ago. Google and news.google search on neocon, neoconservatives, and Rumsfeld plus, say, Feith, esp Perle, Wolf, Andrew Marshall, and a few other combos. This is how I was getting a lot of my news as I sought to understand some background issues re politics in DC.
They are very upfront. Elliot Abrams is part of this and I do not respect him for it, but he is additionally a brilliant writer giving many insights into this all (neocon.)
I only wonder how they grabbed control, if disagreement there (wonders never cease)
then why does the world call their presence (unarguable) controlling. Wish they'd go away myself, or crawl back to the demo worm holes.

As the article clearly points out, the term neoconservative as it is thrown about by people (apparently such as you) has no meaning.
There is no commonality of background, beliefs, or any other defining characteristic.
The old neoconservative movement was quite different than what the term now indicates. The current term doesn't seem to mean anything other than "hawk" or "someone the left and the paleocons don't like".
Some 'neocons' were liberals 10+ years ago. Many people derisively labelled 'neocons' today never have been.
