dc.description.abstract This paper begins by considering various theoretical models that have been or could be applied to presidential decision making on similar issues, identifying the weaknesses that necessitate use of the framing model. Part II describes Garrison’s three-component model and highlights its strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis alternatives. The nature of the neoconservative movement is also discussed, and the movement is codified as a policy advocacy coalition. Part III puts the puzzle together, analyzing the consonance of the neoconservative frame with the unique perspectives of Cheney and Rumsfeld, and identifies why alternative frames failed to resonate with (or even reach) these men. The conclusion summarizes the paper’s findings and discusses consequences of this cognitive consonance.
