  • Obama can't get his story straight on bin Laden

    Anyone who didn't spot a whopper in the headline "Bin Laden surrender was nearly impossible" (May 4) obviously hasn't lived through the Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan Wars. The simple fact that the U.S. government can't get its story straight from the...

    I completely disagree with Alan Eason ("After bin Laden, a time for reflection," May 6) and side strongly with Midshipman Hans Vreeland ("Midshipman: This is why we celebrated bin Laden death," May 6) and his comparison of the celebration by midshipmen at...

    Can the U.S. still trust Pakistan?

    In defense of religious moderation
    Whether it's the U.S. president ordering the killing of an Islamist extremist in Pakistan, a Long Island congressman scheduling hearings on the radicalization of Islam in America, or mullahs in Afghanistan exhorting mobs to violence in response to a...

    Baltimore architectural firm in demand for overseas projects
    While many architectural and planning firms have seen a drop-off in design work as a result of the recession and the slow recovery, one Baltimore-based company has remained busy by finding work in other countries. Development Design Group has carved...
  • Lunch review: Akbar offers a transporting buffet

    Lunch review: Akbar offers a transporting buffet
    There's probably some Australopithecine lizard brain thing that triggers my sense of conspiratorial intimacy whenever I go below street level to dine or drink. That or something about strangers gathering in dimly lit subterranean chambers appeals to the...
  • Arrest made in plot to blow up Baltimore-area military recruiting center

    Arrest made in plot to blow up Baltimore-area military recruiting center
    A 21-year-old Baltimore County man, whose Facebook postings about jihad gave way to discussions with an FBI informant about how to kill American soldiers, was arrested Wednesday after authorities say he tried to blow up a Catonsville military recruiting...
