The Indonesian Embassy in Washington D.C. has expressed her relationship with the United States in the most unique way -- by building a statue of Saraswati, the iconic representation of education in Hindu tradition on their grounds.
Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is determined to link the White House, and President Barack Obama, to the so-called IRS scandal, even though there is no proof one exists.
President Obama dealt with folks inside and outside Washington as more of a "transaction than a relationship." I was referring to how he relates to people in politics and when trying to get policy through Congress.
These con-artists use their former connections to legitimate people in the industry as a way to lure the desperate, eager, young singer-songwriters into their web; promising record deals, tours, radio play, etc., for a price. How do I know? It happened to me.
If Bradley Manning can be charged with "aiding the enemy" for leaking evidence of war crimes to the public, is it a big jump for the spies to electronically monitor the 70,000 of us who've signed a petition saying that Manning is a hero?
By today's standards my political views are considered liberal, perhaps even far to the left of center. Yet just a few decades ago I would have been (and was) labeled a moderate or even slightly right of center for holding the same positions I hold today.
As I listened to the stories of the survivors and victims, it became strikingly apparent that the CIA simply had no idea whom they were targeting. These strikes may be technically accurate, but the intelligence on which they are based is damningly flawed.
The US government and voices of conscience are now engaged in a war -- not a laughing matter. We can only hope -- to make sense of this ongoing war -- there will be humor.
In both Turkey and Brazil, it has been the reckless brutality of the security forces -- captured on smartphones and broadcast to a whole world that's watching -- that has caused the protests to grow. Will the United States go down the same road?
The man behind Droga5 talks about how he uses the ad world to create markets for important ideas (and to sell stuff, too).
Obama's proposal to take sides in the Syrian war is wrong. It is arrogant. It ignores our destructive history in the Middle East and the perception by all parties in the region that everything we do there is motivated by our blatant bias toward Israel.
These are the elephants in the American economy. All other spending is minor compared to spending on healthcare and the military. If we can get greater efficiencies in these two areas, all the other problems become much more manageable.
Could John McCain or Mitt Romney have gotten away with what President Barack Obama is doing? Where Democrats once feverishly denounced the actions of George W. Bush, they are now eerily silent when their own candidate behaves in much the same way as his predecessor.
While you could easily take the cynical view and declare allocating more spectrum for wireless is long overdue, it's worth remembering that mobile broadband -- and the mobile app industry it has sparked -- is still in its infancy.
Founded more than half a century ago, the Bilderberg Group haunts the minds of conspiracy theorists but is almost nonexistent in the consciousness of the average person.
One can debate whether America should insert itself militarily into the Syrian conflict. It is far less debatable that by selling weapons to al-Assad, Russia has precipitated Obama's recent decision to arm the Syria rebels, initiating an American role in this military conflict.
