In these years, the liberal Dr. Frankensteins had abandoned their Cold War monster, while a corporal's guard of Cold War liberal loyalists reinvented themselves as Neo-Conservatives. They became the brains, if that is the right word, behind Reagan's foreign policy of détente, Cold War tough talk, and the harassment of Central America.
