The debates concerning American foreign and security policy after the 9/11 terrorist attack has brought into discussion the American neoconservatism as the ideology that had a major impact when crafting the Bush Doctrine. Back in 1995 and afterwards in 1996 the key figure of American neoconservatism, Irving Kristol and Norman Podhoretz, launched the thesis of the death of American neoconservatism. The article is concerned with Kristol` and Podhoretz` disputed statements and aims to reject their thesis concerning the death of American neoconservatism.
