  • Obama kicks butt in foreign policy

    Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s column ("Obama's foreign policy reset has little to show for it," Oct. 28) criticizes President Barack Obama's foreign policy. It focused much on the tour that the President Obama undertook early in his...
  • Obama's Susan Rice conundrum

    Obama's Susan Rice conundrum
    U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has become a willing pawn in Senate Republicans' efforts to force President Barack Obama into a costly and unnecessary fight over who will serve as his secretary of state when Hillary Clinton leaves that post in the new year....
  • Middle East mess was born in the U.S.A.

    Middle East mess was born in the U.S.A.
    Titillation over David Petraeus and political posturing over Susan Rice aside, here is the most important unasked question: Why did we foster regime change in Libya and Egypt that gave the Muslim Brotherhood control in the latter and produced a gaggle...
  • Plenty of unanswered questions about Rice and Benghazi

    If the Obama administration is in a conundrum over the Susan Rice nomination for Secretary of State, it is one entirely of their own making ("Obama's conundrum," Nov. 30). They knew within 24 hours of the attack that it was an al-Qaida affiliate sponsored...
  • Setting limits on drones

    Setting limits on drones
    It's about time. President Barack Obama's announcement today of new limits on drone strikes and his renewed call to close the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay were badly overdue. The United States has lost much credibility overseas with...
  • Schaller's 'humble origins' theory doesn't apply to JFK

    Transcript of Obama's remarks to U.S. Naval Academy graduates
    Hello, Midshipmen! (Applause.) Well, thank you, Governor O'Malley, for your kind introduction and the great support that Maryland gives this Academy. To Secretary Mabus, Admiral Greenert, General Paxton -- thank you all for your incredible leadership of...
  • Drone use must be restricted

    Drone use must be restricted
    On Wednesday, I was fortunate to have attended Medea Benjamin's talk on drone warfare at the Pratt Library. It's time Americans began to understand and speak out against the misuse of this technology. There is no basic problem with unmanned aerial...
  • Obama for president

    Obama for president
    Barack Obama has not been a perfect president. Millions are still suffering from a weak economy, vitally important issues like climate change and immigration remain all but unaddressed, and most disappointingly, the promise of a new politics to move us...
  • Obama administration assaults press freedom

    Obama administration assaults press freedom
    In Washington, as in any seat of power, most acts of folly begin with hubris. Government leaders, elected or appointed, usually don't intend to do the wrong thing, to overstep or cause harm, but they become so convinced, so certain of their purpose,...
  • Republicans' fake outrage over Benghazi

    Republicans' fake outrage over Benghazi
    Republicans like Rep. Darrell Issa and Bob Ehrlich must be getting pretty desperate trying to make a big deal about an Obama cover up on Benghazi ("Benghazi: The Obama spin continues," May 12). What is known is that a murderous crowd attacked the U.S....
  • More, not fewer, troops in Afghanistan

    In reference to The Sun's editorial, "Unfriendly fire" (Aug. 22), I am in complete disagreement with the claim that maybe it's time to consider speeding up the timetable for bringing all of our troops home from Afghanistan and the surrounding areas. We...
