    Is the Islamic State really un-Islamic? [Commentary]
    "Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state." -- President Barack Obama in his address to the nation on...

    If 'evil' doesn't apply to Islamic State, what does? [Commentary]
    I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil...

    Teachers unions: an endangered species [Commentary]

    Obama's breezy words for post 9/11 torture [Commentary]
    "...but we tortured some folks." -- President Barack Obama, Aug.1, 2014 OK, in the first place: "tortured some folks?" Really? Was there not something annoyingly breezy in the president's phrasing last week as he acknowledged the abuse of suspected...
