  • Is it time for the U.S. to leave Afghanistan?

    Is it time for the U.S. to leave Afghanistan?
    It's been one week since the U.S. House of Representatives nearly voted to end the war in Afghanistan. In that time, the U.S. has apologized for a NATO air strike that killed 14 women and children, and Afghan president Hamid Karzai has issued a "last...

    Bachmann insulted by Wallace's 'flake' question
    GOP presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) said she was insulted Sunday morning when Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked her whether she is a “flake?”  “You have a history of questionable statements, some...
  • Congress accepts own irrelevancy on Libya

    Congress accepts own irrelevancy on Libya
    The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.  Thankfully, Congress yesterday ended its collective denial and admitted it is completely irrelevant.  Senate leaders on Tuesday abandoned plans to force a vote on authorizing the U.S. war in...
  • Muddled Middle East

    Muddled Middle East
    When revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt erupted earlier this year quickly forced out long-time autocratic rulers, many in the West hoped that the pro-democracy demonstrations there would unleash a tidal wave of change across the Arab world. To an extent,...

    Missing four months, Md. man in Libyan prison, mother says

    Bin Laden 'bounce' helps, but Obama should remember 1992
    Killing Osama bin Laden is a strange way to start a presidential campaign season, but that's where we are. Now, bin Laden wasn't taken out for partisan political reasons. Nor was his death ultimately a partisan policy. With only the most cartoonish...
  • The U.S. war in Libya is illegal

    I fail to understand how the Obama administration can legitimately continue the war in Libya. Even though Predator drones are the new weapons of choice and some military gurus feel they are not actual combatants, it's wrong to keep this conflict going...
  • Political impact of 9/11 fades

    At a town hall meeting in Catonsville last week, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin spent a half-hour answering questions, including whether Congress would cut Medicare, address immigration or impeach President Barack Obama. Despite the breadth of the discussion,...
  • Last week, debt; this week sharks … what else is new?

    Last week, debt; this week sharks … what else is new?
    The beginning of August is a strange time in America. Children become sick of the activities that their helicopter parents have forced them into, the attention span for Major League Baseball drops off — especially in Baltimore — before playoff...
  • Proposal for statewide development controls gets mixed review in Carroll

    Maryland Secretary of Planning Richard Hall and fellow officials from the Maryland Department of Planning anticipated some skepticism when they came to Carroll Community College on July 28 to roll out Plan Maryland, a proposed state-wide development plan....
  • Afghanistan's innocent victims

    Afghanistan's innocent victims
    I used to think of Vice President Joseph Biden as a nice guy. Good old Joe. Down-to-earth, nice sense of humor, great family man. But last year I read the Bob Woodward book on "Obama's Wars." His account of Mr. Biden's meeting with Afghanistan president...
  • Military experience helped Bill Volenick forge long career in government intelligence

    Ellicott City resident William "Bill" Volenick, 80, joined the military right out of college when the United States was engaged in the Korean War. He chose to go into the intelligence field and it sparked a career that spanned 35 years at the National...
