    Congress' approval rating matters<!-- span class="opinionlabel">[OPINION]</span -->

  • U.S. must respond to Syria's chemical weapons

     U.S. must respond to Syria's chemical weapons
    While many would argue that there are no rules in war, I feel that a terrible line was crossed with the use of poison gas munitions by the government of Syria on its own civilians. Such wide-scale barbarism demands a U.S. military response, regardless...

    Obama's blundering has handed Assad a huge victory
    Chemical weapons are evil, but you could also say they're a curse. They have a talismanic power to bend and distort U.S. foreign policy. You can ask George W. Bush or Barack Obama. In 2003, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz gave a lengthy...

  • Obama must not allow a default

    Obama must not allow a default
    In spite of opposition by 72 percent of the American public, Republican members of the House of Representatives have driven the government, and possibly the economy, over the shutdown cliff. More ominous is their threat not to agree to an increase in...
  • America can't guarantee that we won't engage in torture if we don't examine the past

    America can't guarantee that we won't engage in torture if we don't examine the past
    Yes, America. We tortured. And it was illegal, abhorrent and cruel. How can we ignore the facts? How can we fail to demand that the full and complete truth be provided to us? Earlier this year, those of us who follow such news of the intelligence...
