  • Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause

    Baltimorean taking up the Libyan rebel cause
    As described by those who know him, Matthew VanDyke comes off as footloose and maybe a little feckless. He has worked sporadically, sometimes getting freelance writing or teaching gigs but more often traveling to the Middle East for months at a time...
  • The U.S. shouldn't prop up tyrants, even if they're on 'our' side

    I awoke Monday to news that North Korea's tyrant, Kim Jong Il, is dead ("Kim Jong Il, 1942-2011: Enigmatic leader," Dec. 19). The article in The Sun was part of a confluence of events that include the military hearing at Fort Meade for accused Pentagon...
  • The battle of Tripoli

    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...
  • Rebels in Tripoli no cause for joy

    How appropriate the front page photo shows a joyous Libyan rebel in American battle dress uniform ("Rebels in Tripoli" Aug. 22). Glad he's so happy. As a taxpayer I'm sickened to realize once again our dollars (billions of them) have been squandered in...
  • On North Korea, caution is better than rash words

    On North Korea, caution is better than rash words
    Perhaps there has been nothing more baffling to American eyes than the photographs of hordes of obviously grief-stricken North Koreans mourning the death of their 69-year-old dictator, Kim Jong Il. Under his reign and that of his father, the people of the...
  • Cut to the chase: It'll be Obama-Clinton vs. Romney-Rubio

    Cut to the chase: It'll be Obama-Clinton vs. Romney-Rubio
    My political prediction for 2012: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton versus Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio. Joe Biden has been a good and energetic vice president, but President Obama will need to stir the passions of the Democratic base, and Mr. Biden won'...
  • Obama's Mideast speech: Israel and the Arab Spring

    Obama's Mideast speech: Israel and the Arab Spring
    The most surprising aspect of President Barack Obama's speech Thursday on U.S. policy in the Middle East may have been his strongly worded call for a two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, based on Israel's boundaries before 1967....
  • What will the U.S. response be to Syria's crimes against humanity?

    What will the U.S. response be to Syria's crimes against humanity?
    The Syrian government's increasingly brutal crackdown on peaceful protesters is putting the Obama administration's revamped Middle East policy to its first real test. It's one thing to say U.S. policy toward the region should spring from America's core...
  • Baltimore writer still missing in Libya

    Baltimore writer still missing in Libya
    Sharon VanDyke's phone rang Monday afternoon, but after quickly dispensing with the call, she said, sadly, "Well, it wasn't Matthew." The wait continues for the retired principal, who has searched for the past five months for her son, a 32-year-old...
  • Bartlett, colleagues, sue Obama over Libya

    Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers Wednesday in filing a lawsuit against President Barack Obama over U.S. involvement in Libya, alleging that the White House overstepped its constitutional authority when it launched the...
  • Baltimore man held in Libya is free

    Baltimore man held in Libya is free
    Matthew VanDyke, the Baltimore man who went missing in Libya more than five months ago, re-emerged in Tripoli on Wednesday and told his family that he had been held captive by Moammar Gadhafi's government in one of the country's most notorious prisons....
  • Rep. Bartlett right on U.S. intervention in Libya

    Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and I would agree on very few political issues. But he is correct to sue over the war in Libya ("Bartlett, others sue over Libya," June 16). While I have great empathy for the people of Libya who have lived for decades under a...
