How did the Project for the New American Century affect American response to 9/11?

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was a think tank established in 1997 that advocated for an aggressive U.S. foreign policy and an increase in military spending. Some of its members, including Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, held key positions in the George W. Bush Administration at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

PNAC's advocacy for a strong U.S. military presence in the Middle East and its call for regime change in Iraq has led some to argue that the organization played a role in shaping the Bush Administration's response to the 9/11 attacks. In particular, some have pointed to PNAC's support for the use of military force in response to the attacks as evidence that the organization influenced the Administration's decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

It is difficult to definitively link PNAC's ideas to the Bush Administration's response to 9/11. However, the close proximity of key PNAC members to the decision-making process in the Bush Administration has led some to suggest that the organization's ideas may have influenced the Administration's response. Regardless, it is clear that the Bush Administration's response to 9/11 was shaped by a variety of factors, including the intelligence gathered about the attacks, the state of the U.S. military, and the broader political and geopolitical context.
