These developments suggests that not only did the nuclear deal not temper Iran's foreign policy, IRGC leaders appear to be more empowered to manifest their military capabilities.
Earlier this month, I wrote a long overdue post about the minority of prominent Muslim scholars who have been systematically co-opted as the religious face of autocracy since the beginning of the Arab Revolutions.
The big news today was that Senator Lindsey Graham has decided to drop out of the presidential nomination race. But recently, what has surprised me even more, is one Hillary Clinton quote in particular about the Middle East that hasn't gotten any media attention at all.
Given the strong affinity between Albanians and the United States, the recent rise of Islamism in Kosovo is deeply troubling.
We can no longer afford repeated government decisions that spend trillions of taxpayer dollars on projects that originally may seem like a good idea but turn out very badly and even make things worse. Any private company with such a poor record would have long been penalized by the market into bankruptcy.
