  • Tell the Imperial President: No More Wars!

    Barack Obama has asked Congress for $500 million to train and arm rebels of the Free Syrian Army who seek to overthrow the government. Before Congress takes up his proposal, both houses should demand that Obama explain exactly where he gets the constitutional authority to plunge us into what the…

  • TURMOIL IN IRAQ PUTS WORLD'S CULTURAL HERITAGE IN PERIL

    When I first traveled to Baghdad in 1973 as a foreign correspondent for the old Chicago Daily News, my visit was filled with surprises -- and I love surprises. First, in my second week in this "totally closed" country, where journalists would tear their hair and shout "AWRRAH!" at the apparent…

  • WILL THE NEW YORK TIMES TAKE US TO WAR AGAIN?

    I have never been much of a fan of the journalistic self-examination practiced by folks identified as "ombudsman" or "public editor." I changed my mind last Sunday, and I'll get to that in a minute.

  • COMMON SENSE IS ONE PROTECTION AGAINST SEXUAL ASSAULT

    No, this is not written in defense of Washington Post and Fox News pundit George Will, whose recent column on rape has drawn outrage and resulted in his ouster from the pages of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, where his syndicated musings had run for many years. Earlier this month, Will wrote, among…

  • Is Hillary Inevitable?

    Looking back over the last century there were two great coalition builders in presidential politics: FDR and Richard Nixon. Franklin Roosevelt broke the Lincoln lock on the presidency that had given Republicans the White House in 56 of the previous 72 years. Nixon broke through in '68 and built…

  • The Justices and Their Cellphones

    Since the nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court went up in flames back in 1987, every appointee to the court has understood that when asked at confirmation hearings about how your personal experiences might affect your decisions, the right answer is "balls and strikes." Just an umpire,…

  • Obstructionism Is Patriotic

    This week's unanimous Supreme Court ruling on President Obama's illegal recess appointments is a double smackdown. First, it's a rebuke against arrogant White House power-grabbers who thought they could act with absolute impunity and interminable immunity. Second, the ruling is a reproach of all…

  • WE'RE PAYING FOR THE MESS WE MADE IN CENTRAL AMERICA

    In the 1960s and '70s, when you would land at the international airport in El Salvador in Central America, more than likely you'd soon be sickened. San Salvador, the capital, is up in the mountains. That was the era of Washington's brave new world anti-communist crusade in these small and…

Disabled Air Force veteran and veterans advocate/attorney Benjamin Krause has been raising questions about the system for months and warning his peers. Under…

  • CENTRAL AMERICA NEEDS OUR ATTENTION NOW

    From what we know about the "Children's Crusade," most were taken to Tunisia and to other Arab countries, where they were sold as slaves and never heard from again. The last few weeks on America's southern border with Mexico have seen a strange repetition of a children's crusade, as thousands of…

  • Make Congress Vote On War

    With the Islamic warriors of ISIS having captured all the border posts between Iraq, Syria and Jordan, we may be witnessing the end of Sykes-Picot. Sykes-Picot stuck in the craw of Osama bin Laden. President Obama said over the weekend that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which seeks to…

  • Democrats Don't Debate; They Distort

    Sen. Rand Paul blames the current disarray in Iraq on George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Were there weapons of mass destruction there? James Fallows of The Atlantic tweeted, "Working hypothesis: no one who stumped for original Iraq invasion gets to give 'advice' about disaster now. Or should get…

  • ARMCHAIR HAWKS STILL CLING TO FANTASIES ABOUT IRAQ

    I've long recognized my naivete, but Dick Cheney has recently reminded me just how wrong I was. Now, that country is disintegrating, torn apart by bloody sectarian warfare that was a foreseeable consequence of the ouster of Saddam Hussein. Yet, Cheney and his neocon allies have come out blasting…

  • THE MORPHING OF MISSISSIPPI

    Do not for a minute think that Tuesday's Senate runoff in Mississippi is about Thad Cochran. Cochran, an innocuous man who sits at the desk once occupied by Jefferson Davis, has been on Capitol Hill for 41 years, and the most remarkable thing about him is that a Mississippi Republican has been in…

    At your press conference, you said, "It is in our national security interest not to see an all-out civil war in Iraq." If that is the case, why did you withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq in 2011? Did no one advise you that the current disaster was possible when you proclaimed in December 2011:…

  • WE CAN'T SEEM TO STAY AWAY FROM IRAQ

    WASHINGTON -- A tiny bell of hope rang in my heart after President Obama announced, after the barbarians of ISIL had taken Mosul in northern Iraq, that the Iraqi troops themselves would have to solve their own problems this time. It's simple: These people don't WANT to live together.
