I'm not so sure about that.  The very succinct version of neo-con  
foreign policy view is that America specifically has both a right and  
an obligation to impose global American hegemony by any means  
necessary.  Hitchens views may coincide with the neo-cons on specific  
actions or issues, but --- at least as far as I have recall --- I  
don't think he goes so far as to share their ultimate goal, therefore  
any similarity is in fact simply coincidental.
