  • How much of a mess for Obama?

    How much of a mess for Obama?
    Today's topic: How has President Bush set up the Obama administration's early months for either failure or success (or something in between)? Previously, Greenwald and Antle discussed presidential pardons and the dozens of late-term regulatory decisions...
  • Bush and history

    Bush and history
    Asked six years ago about how history would judge the Iraq war, George W. Bush offered this characteristically cavalier response: "History. We don't know. We'll all be dead." Like the war that came to define it, Bush's presidency conceivably could be...
  • The limits of language

    Can there be a political writer who has not fallen in love with George Orwell's 1946 essay, "Politics and the English Language"? Part of its appeal is what's appealing about all of Orwell -- its directness and honesty, its plain-spokenness, its faith,...
  • War, fear and truth

    Perhaps it would have surprised George Orwell, poet laureate of the Cold War, to find himself so much in our thoughts in this second decade of the post-Cold War age. The Soviet Union is 15 years dead, its imperium in the East long since ended. China has...
  • How does President Bush lie?

    In the face of overwhelming evidence, it's astounding that people such as James Kirchick, in "Bush never lied to us about Iraq," continue to defend the president against accusations that he intentionally misled and outright lied to the American people...
  • For Marines, Iraq becomes a family affair

    The general who soon will lead 25,000 Marines in Iraq said Wednesday that "the experts" were wrong when they predicted that repeated deployments would strain military families to the breaking point. Reenlistments among Marines remain high, which would...
  • The right way to withdraw

    Iraq is like a variable-rate mortgage with balloon payments and a stiff withdrawal penalty -- much cheaper to get into than out of. Had we not invaded Iraq, there are any number of better things we could do to fight terror with the billions the...
  • Cheney's delusions

    Cheney's delusions
    We probably shouldn't have been surprised at Vice President Dick Cheney's blustering, obstinate insistence on ABC News on Monday that he's been right all along about virtually everything. But that doesn't mean we have to agree. In the interview,...
  • Smart sanctions vs. dumb bombs

    U.S. foreign policy has its own fads and fashions. They change more slowly than Oscar-night sensations, but get reputations that are harder to shake. At the moment, economic sanctions have a bad rap. And that's a shame, because financial sanctions are...
  • Obama says new approach needed to rid world of nuclear weapons, touts early Iraq opposition

    Democrat Barack Obama called for ridding the world of nuclear weapons today and offered his early opposition to the Iraq war as evidence of sound judgment that trumps his lack of Washington experience. Obama argued that U.S. policy is still focused on...
  • Amid civil war, reports mean little

    The intense focus on Gen. David H. Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker obscures the essential irrelevance of the report they will make to Congress on Monday and, in a larger sense, the irrelevance of U.S. troops to Iraqi politics. The...
  • Cross-examine Petraeus

    It is an anxious and impatient nation that waits for Monday's testimony from the top U.S. officials in Iraq, Gen. David H. Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker. They are brilliant and dedicated men who have accepted unenviable jobs, and their views...
