In foreign-policy battles, are neocons losing their hold? | csmonitor.com: "In foreign-policy battles, are neocons losing their hold?

By Howard LaFranchi | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

WASHINGTON � Secretary of State Colin Powell is on a roll. In a kind of nose-thumbing at neoconservatives' 'America first and alone' ideology, the Bush administration's leading protagonist of multilateralism is displaying the power of diplomacy over confrontation.
There he is in Sudan with United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, urging the Sudanese government to rein in militias and end a humanitarian crisis. Next, he's in Asia, conducting the highest-level meeting that's been held in two years with a North Korean official.

Such initiatives - following President Bush's own 'month of summits' in June - have some observers speculating that the 'neocons' and their black-and-white views of the world are on the outs in the White House."
