Buchanan's A NeoCon?

Since when did Buchanan become a neocon? He started a magazine, The American Conservative, to protest the Iraq War, and has written numerous books against an interventionist foreign policy. And though he may be socially conservative, he has argued that the state shouldn't get involved in our private lives.

Sample quotes from his books

"The neoconservatives are not really conservatives at all. They are impostors and opportunists."

"We are not hated for who we are. We are hated for what we do. It is not our principles that have spawned pandemic hatred of America in the Islamic world. It is our policies."

"The Bush Doctrine is a prescription for permanent war for permanent peace, though wars are the death of republics."
