There are legitimate questions and concerns that should be raised about the deaths of the four Americans at Benghazi. But to use that terrible event to discredit the legion of ground-breaking, successful foreign policy accomplishments of the Obama Administration is beyond unconscionable.
Obama has one move. He needs to call in Colin Powell to help him put out the escalating inferno and to restore both credibility and a sense of integrity to the military high command. Only Powell has both the status and the national-security gravitas to help Obama steady this dangerously rocking ship.
The vomit of racism still finds a place in Republican Party politics. It is sad to watch John Sununu -- twenty years ago, a younger Sununu might have known better. But it is even sadder to watch the rest of Lincoln's old party sink in the mire.
When Colin Powell or other military leaders look at the Romney campaign and find that more than a third of the national security advisors come from a single conservative think tank, maybe they fear a disastrous replay of the past decade.
Two former members of the Bush administration may have inadvertently acted as a buffer for the president, driving a wedge between the attacks from Rep...
By focusing on the white vote and ignoring the non-white vote, Mitt Romney has given the significant and growing non-white voter block in America their decision: vote for the non-white guy, he's one of us.
We know America's two-year struggle for power is near its end, but are not so sure about Syria's. The uncertain 'Id al-Adha truce, coming amidst stalemate and slaughter, may yet be a step back from the abyss. It wouldn't have a chance if we were knee-deep in fueling the war.
Obama, the naive community organizer, thinks the foreign policy debate is about national security, but Romney, the quintessential vulture capitalist, knows that it's always been about maximizing profit.
Nuclear weapons are becoming increasingly irrelevant for national security. Yet, instead of scaling back the excessively large arsenal, military planners are putting in place programs to "modernize it," essentially locking the United States into several decades of nuclear build-up.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says many in Washington -- his fellow Republicans in particular -- are biased against diplomats, because of a wrong perception that diplomats are indecisive and want to compromise at all cost.
Can American policy makers and politicians take for granted that they are ruling a nation of Homer Simpsons who can be duped into war by the very same trick that we just fell for ten years ago? Our leaders are being extra-careful not to say "WMD"s, but surely Bart and Lisa can connect the dots.
I firmly believe that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons, but I am also convinced they would like us to assume so -- a sort of wild card if you will in the game of politics.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has been an excellent and indefatigable Secretary of State during the Obama administration. How many miles has she traveled and to how many nations? How about rewarding her hard work with the vice presidential spot on the Democratic ticket?
To have a capable military on an affordable budget, excessive or outdated programs must be cut. His solution is that nukes should be on the chopping block. It's strong advice.
The Central Asian exit plan will cost the American taxpayer more than twice as much as the Pakistani alternative.. Worse, the plan's success depends completely on the goodwill of Russia and its mercurial Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
