    Libyan authorities have acknowledged that they have detained Maryland resident Matthew VanDyke, according to Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger. The Libyan government, Ruppersberger said in a statement Tuesday, "will now be held accountable for his welfare...
  • Premature to call Gadhafi's fall a policy vindication

  • Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'

    Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'
    And so it ends. The United States is leaving Iraq. I'm solidly in the camp that sees this as a strategic blunder. Iraqi democracy is fragile and Iran's desire to undermine it is strong. Also, announcing our withdrawal is a weird way to respond to a...

    The battle of Tripoli
    Col. Moammar Gadhafi's 42-year misrule of the oil-rich African nation of Libya appears finally to be nearing an end. The rebels' surprisingly swift advance into the capital, Tripoli, over the weekend brought large parts of the government's last...

    Libyan oil: To the victor go the spoils, but not when you 'lead from behind'
    Because it's the U.S. Army's Energy Awareness Month, it may be a good time to remind President Obama of oil's importance to economic security and the role that wartime leadership and image play in getting your hands on it post-victory. He can't just...
