  • Hubris led to the downfall of Petraeus, Allen

  • CIA killings continue, Petraeus or no

    Susan Reimer's column, "Surprising reaction to L'affaire Petraeus," (Nov. 15), brings up a number of salient points, most notably that male readers in large part thought that Gen. David Petraeus took the honorable, necessary course of action, while...

  • Drone use must be restricted

    Drone use must be restricted
    On Wednesday, I was fortunate to have attended Medea Benjamin's talk on drone warfare at the Pratt Library. It's time Americans began to understand and speak out against the misuse of this technology. There is no basic problem with unmanned aerial...
  • In Benghazi and eyond, fallen workers remembered

    Let's take a break from the raging discord that has dominated Washington lately by remembering federal employees who died abroad in service to their country. With so much attention focused on what the government has done wrong, we'll end the week with...
