I refer you to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoconservatism_(United_States)

Neoconservatism is a conservative movement with origins in the Old Left that has been very influential in formulating pro-war foreign policy stances by the United States.

The term "neoconservative" remains somewhat controversial, with many of those whom the label is applied to rejecting it. It has become an increasingly popular term in recent years, to the point where many say it is becoming overused and lacking any coherient defintion.


But click within that page on The return of neoconservatism under George W. Bush for the contemporary definition.
