photoWilliam Kristol is perhaps the most influential of the neoconservatives. Editor of the Weekly Standard and chairman of the Project for the New American Century, he is reported to have enormous influence in the Bush White House.

Kristol's agenda of promoting American global leadership has gained currency since 9/11. Recently, he has spoken out on possible nominees to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court and recommended that Bush drop his fight to reform Social Security in favor of making his tax cuts permanent.

Hear about U.S. policy at home and abroad from the man acknowledged as the neoconservative architect of the current war in Iraq.
