Having spent 24 years as an FBI agent working in the criminal justice system always and inherently focused on looking backward to solve the worst crimes, I understand the true purpose of Obama's ridiculous "only look forward" cover-up.
The World According to Dick Cheney takes its viewer on a tour of Dick Cheney's life with Cheney playing host, as the film is centered around a series of lengthy interviews with the former vice president. In the end, it is frustrating and deeply flawed -- much like its main subject.
Even if Iran is years away from deployment the Obama administration is still concerned that SATs may fall into the hands of terrorists.
By any standard, the failure of the America media in 2002-03 was the worst collapse by any press corps anywhere since the 1930s. In a profession where the highest value is on truth telling, false information was presented as fact on front pages night after night.
General Pervez Musharraf, who has returned to Pakistan from self-exile, must face justice. He must be prosecuted for his serial criminality, including subversion of the constitution.
Paralyzed in a 2004 attack in Sadr City, Iraq War veteran Tomas Young recently announced that he will stop his medicine and nourishment, which comes i...
Unfortunately the Iraq War isn't over. Not only is the Iraqi insurgency still going strong and wreaking havoc, but the American veterans returned home from duty are still dying, still suffering, still looking to God for answers.
Non-interventionism is no longer a fringe position within the Republican Party. It may in fact become what it was for a generation prior to the Cold War: mainstream thinking in the Republican Party.
Considering the fact that the new Israeli government is practically a Republican regime, it was surprising to see how President Obama seemed happy in his visit to Israel.
It wasn't that the media 'got it wrong.' It was the the media itself that was wrong. The entire decrepit system, built on profit and ratings rather than ethics and accountability, proved to be a gigantic failure when it came to anything vaguely serious.
I was 19 when the Iraq War began. As I write this, I'm 29 years old with a wife and a seven-month-old baby. My life has changed a whole lot during the past 10 years, but that war has been one measurable constant.
Much as the U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan eventually became like the medieval holy warriors they fought, so too have the countries' political systems converged in terms of their polarization.
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.
While Obama opposed the invasion, which ended up costing America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives, and vastly more Iraqis, in creating one of the greatest geopolitical debacles in history, his host, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, was one of the greatest champions of the Iraq War.
Ten years later, was the Iraq War worth it? Did the U.S. achieve its goals? Is Iraq a more democratic country? Are the Iraqi people better off than they were under Saddam Hussein? Was it worth the cost? And most important, was it worth the American and Iraqi lives lost? You decide.
