After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the most frequently heard forecast was: "This changes everything." Americans would live in constant fear of the next attack, many pundits predicted. The desire for safety would spawn a security state that...
As I read your recent article "Iran reaps gains of war in Iraq" (April 1), my mind swiftly swept back to Oct. 22, 2011, when The Sun published another report under the headline "Obama: Troops out of Iraq by Dec. 31." I still have my copy of that edition...
In the two months after 9/11, I called Baltimore County police to check out a black-and-tan backpack left by an office door in Towson, reported an abandoned carry-on bag at BWI to Maryland State Police and refused to watch a bulky valise for a stranger...
Regardless of whether a man or woman joins an international organization like al-Qaida or simply acts alone, terrorism has wended its hellish way into the very fiber of our society ("At least 3 dead, scores injured in Boston blasts," April 16). So this...

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul got a lot of attention Wednesday for mounting an honest-to-God filibuster of President Barack Obama's nominee for CIA director, John Brennan. The nation's political class marveled at his real-life Mr. Smith act, the funny stuff his...
What! I can't believe it. The Sun reports that Secretary of State John Kerry promises to give Egypt $190 million to help the government pay its bills ("Egypt deal with IMF of paramount importance: Kerry," Mar. 2). Last week I heard it was $60 million....
Defense officials and their allies in Congress have done their best to create a sense of crisis about impending budget cuts, but their warnings have failed to produce any visible result. Instead, partisan divisions have hardened over how to avoid the...
Being a Naval Reserve Officer veteran with eight years of active duty — five during WWII and three more in the Korean Conflict —- it was with a sad and heavy heart that I read a recent article in a local newspaper concerning the unrest and...
