Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another marker not mentioned in that Wiki snippet is the influence of "Scoop" Jackson, who was an anti-Soviet Democrat. Richard Perle began his career with him.

As I recall, Marek's argument (when upbraiding me for spraying "neocon" around) was that Cheney and Rumsfeld were mega-hawk conservatives, not neocons in the strict sense. They were however extremely closely associated with neocons under (or over) BushII.
