    Which way in Afghanistan?
    With the first anniversary of the U.S. "surge" in Afghanistan coming up in August, President Barack Obama will soon have to decide whether to maintain the current force levels or begin withdrawing some of the 30,000 additional troops he ordered there last...
  • The Obama-haters' mindless enmity

    A perpetually fact-challenged writer from Silver Spring is asserting that Obama's re-election would be a disaster ("Obama's re-election in 2012 would be a disaster," June 9). I got the same sort of mindless screed against President Obama from friends...

  • Let's get out of Afghanistan

    Nearly a decade after the American invasion of Afghanistan, there are still 250,000 foreign forces there — 100,000 U.S. troops, 50,000 NATO troops and 100,000 Pentagon-paid mercenaries. Unfortunately, in the president's speech Wednesday, he only...

    The Obama administration may finally be on the right track in its strategy for combating terrorism, as its new strategic doctrine has sworn off counter-insurgency in favor of a more targeted approach — one that we see already in effect as unmanned...
  • Muddled Middle East

    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...
