If more Americans were aware of the tragic tale of Shaker Aamer's treatment, it would be safe to assume his instant release would have come to the backdrop of throngs of cheering well-wishers.
Nixon, Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II used the military to accomplish political objectives. They weren't focused on keeping American safe. It's no wonder that Bush II launched a poorly thought out war in Iraq and, as a result, destabilized the Middle East, creating ISIS and the current chaos.
The film stars Cate Blanchett as 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes (upon whose memoir the script is based), and movie legend Robert Redford as news legend Rather, and it's imminently watchable thanks to the investigative format and the sterling cast that's been assembled.
Presidential candidate Jeb Bush has confessed, given what we know now, he would not have authorized the invasion of Iraq, as his brother did. A politician with integrity should have followed that comment with an apology to the Iraqi people.
I'm going to keep this really simple. In response to your comment that you could personally "plead guilty" to not having imagined terrorists would use passenger aircraft as weapons→please stop lying.
Make no bones about it, so far this has been a bizarre American century. To get a full frontal sense of what that means, however, let's return to late September 2001.
I have no issue with Benghazi being investigated; all the better to prevent future attacks. It is also understandable to be outraged at the deaths in Benghazi. But not if you felt no such outrage when embassy staff was killed under Bush. Or if you give Bush a pass on 9/11.
What a great dozen-day stretch Hillary Clinton has just had. First a very impressive performance in the first Democratic presidential debate. Followed...
A plethora of child care legislation has been passed over the past four decades but programs are still available to only a fraction of the children who need them. The quality of care provided to our children in their early years remains very inadequate, especially for the poorest children.
TRUTH is based on Mary Mapes memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President and the Privilege of Power. CBS News 60 minutes II aired an investigated ...
Exceptional, the new book from former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz, is not. It is nothing more than an unhinged rant that smacks of sedition. The personal attacks are unremitting and obnoxious, but they have a purpose.
As he comes to grips with his failed escalations in Afghanistan and Syria, President Barack Obama should nevertheless respond to China's escalations in the South China Sea. Fortunately, all it requires is that he direct the U.S. Navy to sail where it has legally sailed for more than a century.
In the last few days, Donald Trump in his folksy manner again is defaming the Bush brand. This time, it's this: 9-11 happened under President George W. Bush's watch, so "W" should be held responsible.
If you're a Republican like Jeb Bush, and your brother also happens to be responsible for the worst military blunder in American history, the subject of the September 11 attacks can be very confusing and complicated.
The war in Afghanistan is now in its fifteenth year, making it the longest war in our history. By turning from fighting the terrorists in Afghanistan who attacked us, to Iraq, which had not, President George W. Bush did not "keep us safe.
If George Bush claimed he were a progressive, we would rightly laugh. Yet no one -- no one -- challenged Clinton's unequivocal claim to progressivism at the CNN Democratic debate earlier this week.
