Richard Perle is a former neoconservative Pentagon policy advisor who was chairman of the Defense Policy Board for 17 years[1]. Perle served as assistant secretary for defense under Ronald Reagan, during which time he was known as "The Prince of Darkness" for his hardline views[2]. Seymour Hersh described Perle as "one of the most outspoken and influential supporters of the war in Iraq [3].

Perle was on the board of Hollinger International who owned The Telegraph and The Spectator, while simultaneously chairing the Defense Policy Board[4]. While Perle was chairing the Defense Policy Board he worked with Devon Cross[5], who sold the Iraq war to the British press (Including The Telegraph and Spectator) in her PR role with the Lincoln Group"[6].
