public support for a war of aggression against Iraq for the benefit of
Israel and in order to steal Iraq's oil.13 To paraphrase advice
Machiavelli once rendered to his Prince in Chapter XVIII of that book:
Those who want to deceive will always find those willing to be
deceived.14 As I can attest from my personal experience as an alumnus of
the University of Chicago Department of Political Science, the Bible of
Chicago's Neo-Con Straussian cabal is Machiavelli's The Prince. We
students had to know our Machiavelli by heart and rote at the University
of Chicago. As for the University of Chicago overall, its biblical
Gospel is Allan Bloom's The Closing of the American Mind (1987).15 Of
course Bloom was another protégé of Strauss, as well as a mentor to
Wolfowitz. In his Bloom-biographical novel Ravelstein (2000) Saul
Bellow, formerly on the University of Chicago Faculty, outed his
self-styled friend Bloom as a hedonist, pederast, and most promiscuous
homosexual who died of AIDS. All this was common knowledge at the
University of Chicago, where Bloom is still worshiped and his elitist
screed against American higher-education still revered on a pedestal. In
Ravelstein Wolfowitz appeared as Bloom's protégé Philip Gorman, leaking
national security secrets to his mentor during the Bush Sr. war against
Iraq. Strauss hovered around the novel as Bloom's mentor and guru
Professor Davarr. Strauss/Davarr is really the éminence grise of
Ravelstein. With friends like Bellow, Bloom did not need enemies. On the
basis of Ravelstein alone, Wolfowitz warrants investigation by the
F.B.I.

Just recently the University of Chicago officially celebrated its Bush
Jr. Straussian Neo-Con cabal, highlighting Wolfowitz Ph.D. '72, Ahmad
Chalabi, Ph.D. '69 (the CIA's Iraqi puppet), Abram Shulsky, A.M. '68,
Ph.D. '72 (head of the Pentagon's special "intelligence" unit), Zalmay
Khalilzad, Ph.D. '79 (Bush Jr's roving pro-consul for Afghanistan and
then Iraq), as well as faculty mem
