NEW DIRECTION

Bill Kristol Starts Think Tank

Bill Kristol has more lives than a cat. The former New York Times columnist has started a new think tank, The Foreign Policy Initiative, with fellow neocon commentator Robert Kagan. The organization's stated principles include a rejection of isolationism, opposition to rogue regimes, and support for human rights, a strong military, and international economic engagement. The organization will kick things off next week with a conference on Afghanistan strategy featuring, of course, John McCain.
