  • Our cranky man in Kabul

    No sooner had the U.S. announced that it would reopen long-stalled peace negotiations with the Taliban this week than Afghan President Hamid Karzai rushed to throw cold water on the idea. Mind you, the mercurial Mr. Karzai had been on board with the...
  • Lessons of Iraq should be applied to Syria

    Lessons of Iraq should be applied to Syria

    NSA chief says programs disrupted 50 terrorist plots
    Under growing pressure over recently disclosed surveillance programs, the head of the National Security Agency told lawmakers Tuesday that gathering telephone data and monitoring Internet use has helped to disrupt more than 50 "potential terrorist events"...

    Why did columnist Thomas F. Schaller leave out the privileged John F. Kennedy as one of the presidents since World War lI who worked successfully on behalf of working-class Americans ("The virtues of a president with humble origins," Oct. 31)? Was it...
  • Obama for president

    Obama for president

  • Time to re-think U.S. use of drones

    Time to re-think U.S. use of drones
    Drones over Syria? Hold on! ("CIA eyes drone strikes in Syria," March 16). The whole business of drone strikes on nations with whom we are not at war gets murkier and more distasteful daily — and cries out for transparency from the Obama...
  • Sun dishonestly recalls St. Pat's Day violence

    Sun dishonestly recalls St. Pat's Day violence
    The Sun's recent article, "City police beef up patrols" (March 8), is so lacking in a grasp of reality that it not only didn't warrant font page, above the fold placement. The implication is that the Irish or those who claim to be on Saint Patrick's Day...
  • What Rand Paul got right

    What Rand Paul got right
    I hope I'm not too late to the fight. Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Mr. Paul's stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for...

    Obama's surveillance state
    A report late Wednesday that a top-secret court authorized the National Security Agency to collect the telephone records of millions of Verizon customers should raise serious concerns about the scope of the Obama administration's domestic surveillance...
  • People are invasive species number one

    People are invasive species number one
    I am compelled to respond to George Fenwick's commentary ("The destructive invasive species purring on your lap," Feb. 26). He cites recent studies suggesting very high bird and mammal deaths due to outdoor cats. He then goes on to propose a Draconian...
  • It takes two to end a war

    It takes two to end a war
    "This war, like all wars, must end. That's what history advises. That's what our democracy demands." -- President Barack Obama at National Defense University, May 23, 2013 They say all is fair in love and war (I'm skeptical), but that doesn't mean war...
  • Diplomacy before arms in Syria

    Diplomacy before arms in Syria
    Syrian President Bashar Assad's brutal war against his domestic opponents has taken some 70,000 lives so far and reduced much of the country to rubble, yet there's no sign either side has gained a decisive advantage in the two-year-old conflict. The...
