I met Bush rather briefly when he was governor of Texas and found him to be intelligent and funny -- though he certainly turned out somewhat differently than I anticipated.
Mara does not represent the views of the people of the District of Columbia, which makes him wrong for the people of D.C.
Amnesty International has produced compelling evidence of massacres, mass abduction, detention beatings, killings and torture by anti-Libyan militia -- backed by the British, French and U.S. So will a post-Assad Syria be any different?
How could any U.S. administration stand by as an Arab dictator gassed his own people? The fact is they did: President Reagan not only turned his back on such ruthless attacks, though they were substantiated by grisly video evidence, but continued to aid the tyrant who was ordering the savagery.
A decade later, Ron Reagan & Torie Clarke (DOD's voice on 9/11 and 3/19) debate why we invaded Iraq and lessons learned. Then: Ron Paul/Tea Party warn about Americans dying from drones but not from the eight-fold growth of right-wing militias with AR-17s?
"I am joining my colleague John Brady Kiesling in submitting my resignation from the Foreign Service (effective immediately) because I cannot in good conscience support President Bush's war plans against Iraq."

With the tenth anniversary of the Iraq invasion coming up next month, we can expect a surge of explanations for what made that catastrophe possible.
Cantor softens GOP rhetoric -- a start? Obama tries a permanent campaign of aggressive, progressive governance -- that succeeding? And the famous and tired Secretary of State leaves after one term to ponder a presidential bid -- worked for Jefferson, will it for Hillary?
Ten years ago this week, a defining moment occurred in the Bush administration's push to invade Iraq. On Feb. 5, 2003, then-Secretary of State General...
When Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke to the U.N. Security Council on February 5, 2003, countless journalists in the United States extolled him for a masterful performance.
If confirmed, about which there is little doubt, John Kerry will be the first white male secretary of state in 16 years. How is he likely to fare?
The lesson of Vietnam is not that the United States should never go to war. It's that war is a last resort to be used only when there's a damn good reason and peaceful options have been exhausted.
