To: the Real fifi
Thank you so much for posting this! I knew something was fishy with the Vanity Fair "interview", yet I was quick to look for explanations for Perle's alleged "turn".
I read the Frum clarification before and waited eagerly for Perle to comment on this. I'm sure more statements by Gaffney and Ledeen will follow.
I consider myself to be an adherent of the neoconservative ideology (certainly to the belittlement or disdain by some other Freepers), defined through my view on Foreign Policy and was therefore shocked to see someone like Perle in this context.
Nonetheless it was foolish of them to give this interview during election-time to a wipe like VF.
You, know, you have a point. But I know they were misled into thinking it was a general think piece. Richard has an email from Rose promising this would not appear until December and, of course, none of them saw how there remarks had been edited and fiddled with.
