ABSTRACT
This article focuses on an essay by Gary Schmitt and Abram Shulsky on Leo Strauss and how he influenced the neoconservative movement. Schmitt and Shulksy argue that the intelligent community relies excessively on social science and that evil dictators could be studied with the same economic and sociological models applied to U.S. suburbs. Their essay helps explain why conservatives will never admit that the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush exaggerated Saddam Hussein's threat. The hyperbolic prewar intelligence was a deeply ingrained method of analysis and questioning their failure would force neoconservatives to reconsider their entire world view.
