  • A better strategy for Afghanistan

    A better strategy for Afghanistan
    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

    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,...
  • Bin Laden 'bounce' helps, but Obama should remember 1992

    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...
  • Mayors for peace

    Mayors for peace
    It isn't often that the U.S. Conference of Mayors expresses its collective opinion on an issue of foreign policy. The last time the group did so was in 1971, when it called on the president and Congress to end the war in Vietnam. So it was significant...
  • 15 years later, CIA acknowledges fallen Marylander worked for agency

    15 years later, CIA acknowledges fallen Marylander worked for agency
    The report from the State Department was brief: Thomas M. Jennings Jr., a federal worker from Burtonsville on a temporary assignment with NATO peacekeepers, had died in a car crash in Southern Bosnia. Fifteen years later, it turns out that was only...
  • Panetta tells Naval Academy graduates to look to Asia-Pacific

    Panetta tells Naval Academy graduates to look to Asia-Pacific
    With Osama bin Laden dead, the war in Iraq over and the war in Afghanistan winding down, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told graduating midshipmen Tuesday to prepare themselves for "one of the key projects" of their generation: building American...
  • We're already at war in Syria

    We're already at war in Syria
    What happens when a brutal regime gets replaced by an alternative and largely unknown entity? Exhibit A: Libya. Shortly after Moammar Gadhafi bumped his head on a bullet, the "rebels" took over and promptly declared Sharia law. It's a start -- I guess....
  • Iran and the bomb

    Iran and the bomb
    A report this week on Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program by the International Atomic Energy Agency leaves little doubt that country's ruling clerics remain determined to acquire the means to produce a bomb. That poses a dilemma for the Obama...
  • Just say no to war with Iran

    How fitting! On this year's Veterans' Day we're learning about the next war in the Middle East ("Iran and the bomb," Nov. 11). Now it's Iran that's in the crosshairs. In my opinion the Pentagon has become "too big to fail," and lessons from the recent...
  • As Afghanistan drawdown looms, concerns about Pakistan

    As Afghanistan drawdown looms, concerns about Pakistan
    Back from a visit to Kabul, Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger expressed confidence in relations between the U.S. and Afghanistan. It's Pakistan that concerns him. "A lot of terrorists are being trained and harbored in Pakistan," said Ruppersberger, the top...
  • Convert defense cuts into civilian benefits

    Convert defense cuts into civilian benefits
    Weapons-makers, ideologues and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta are busy whipping up fears in reaction to scheduled reductions in our bloated military budget. Don't be fooled. These cuts will not put our security at risk, though they will cut into profits...
  • Rachel Marsden: Could we have the wars without the manipulation?

    Rachel Marsden: Could we have the wars without the manipulation?
    Testifying before a Senate committee a few months ago, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented that America was "in an information war, and we are losing that war." This week, she blew a fuse at the "Friends of Syria" meeting in Paris, saying that...
