The PNAC is a sister organization to the Israeli organization IASPS, the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies.

After receiving much attention from 9/11 researchers over their questionable manifesto, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” the PNAC has since changed its name to the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI).

Just like the PNAC's manifesto, the IASPS has a companion document as well, entitled, “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” (1997) written by none other than PNAC members Richard Perle and Douglas Feith.

The two plans, Rebuilding America's Defenses, and A Clean Break, both dovetail together as one plan with a singular objective.

One could rightfully suggest that there may be more than just these two uncovered plans in play. There very well could conceivably be at least two more plans, covering both the EU and Asia, but they have yet to surface in the public domain.
