In total, this was by far the most climate hawkish State of the Union ever, and that's important progress. But I have two wishes for future addresses.

A Few Truths About the Slow Path of "Justice" at Guantánamo

Alka Pradhan | Posted 11.06.2016 | Politics

The Guantánamo Bay military commission is a secretive court that uses secret evidence chosen by the prosecution and often denied to the defense, where secret agents spy on the defense without consequences.

Obama Has to Brag More About the Economy

Marvin Meadors | Posted 08.28.2016 | Politics
Marvin Meadors

Now is the time for Democrats to rally and speak in unison about the economic performance under this president, something Republicans orchestrate so well. While not stellar and considering we were on the brink of collapse, Obama's economic performance is praiseworthy.

Google is a wonderful creation. However, despite Google's historic contribution to the world, the fact remains that many of the links it lists on its search pages are often partially or even completely false.

Help Wanted, Now Hiring -- Leader of the United States

Democracy is a relational form of government. True Relational Leadership aspires to navigate this country to its unifying destiny not its leaders' polarizing re-election. Hiring our next leader starts with selecting a WHO that will lead us together to WHAT.

Authorization to Use Military Force Against ISIS Is Too Broad

Jon Soltz | Posted 04.14.2015 | Politics
Jon Soltz

The limits under Obama's proposed authorization are an important distinction, which we hope will carry on through future administrations. However, on maybe the most important limit -- the limit on types of operations our ground troops can be committed to -- the language is too broad, and leaves too much room for drawn-out combat missions.

Why We Torture

Scott Sigmund Gartner

Intelligence is never perfect: Mistakes will be made. Extreme fear of one type of intelligence mistake, however, has repercussion not only on the likelihood of committing the other type of error but in the value of information and the methods used to obtain it.

Avidan Milevsky

Although I would be thrilled for George and Jeb to take their place on my couch as we explore their early sibling dynamics, all I can do at this point is juxtapose what we know about the science of siblings and what is known about the Bush family.

America's Day of Shame and Redemption

The much delayed release of the report hit the headlines on World Human Rights Day, which commemorates the United Nation's General Assembly adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 (due in no small part to American leadership).

Medical Treatment by Brute Force

Force-feeding started at Guantanamo in response to fear that self-starving captives would stir anti-American ire. It would be ironic were this response itself to rouse worldwide outrage, making allies less likely to collaborate with us and stiffening our enemies' resolve.

If (When) Baghdad Falls, Keep American Soldiers Away From the Mess Created By Bush and Obama

H. A. Goodman | Posted 12.24.2014 | Politics

With Iraq falling apart and a new enemy on the horizon that's simply a rebranding of the old one, there's a striking observation to be made about two presidents, Congress, and the leaders who send our soldiers off to war.

Tsunami, Tidal Wave or Earthquake?: The Battle of the Midterm Metaphors

Jeanne Zaino | Posted 12.15.2014 | Politics
Jeanne Zaino

The notion that we see our electoral politics as akin to the 2004 Indonesian tsunami or any of the countless other natural disasters which have killed millions without warning is telling. And what it suggests about who we are politically is of far greater concern than which party narrowly captures the Senate in November.

We Are Correcting the Error of 9/12

Terry Mollner | Posted 12.13.2014 | Politics
Terry Mollner

On 9/12, nearly all the nations on Earth were emotionally with the United States. If President Bush had defined the terrorist attack as a criminal act, he would have had nearly every nation on Earth join the coalition he tried to form.

ISIS: A Threat Far Worse Than Al Qaeda

Bernard B. Kerik | Posted 10.10.2014 | Politics
Bernard B. Kerik

The ISIS message is not just a hatred for democracy or the freedoms of the West, but a sick and demented interpretation of Islam, calling for genocide or an annihilation of Christian, Jews and anyone of another religion, including anyone who stands in their way.

ISIS Atrocities in Iraq Represent the Catastrophic Failure of Bush Doctrine and Neoconservative Foreign Policy

H. A. Goodman | Posted 10.08.2014 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

After 4,804 U.S. soldiers died in Iraq and 2,340 U.S. soldiers died in Afghanistan, one million U.S. soldiers wounded in both wars, and a potential cost of up to $6 trillion, the last thing Americans need to see is video of fanatics executing civilians in Iraq.

Religious organizations receiving federal contracts can no longer discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees. Some question whether President Obama has gone too far. Others question whether he has gone far enough.

The News Is What the New Gitmo Hearings Don't Tell Us

Daphne Eviatar | Posted 03.30.2014 | Politics
Daphne Eviatar

The current review process is an improvement over the old one, in that the detainee is now assigned two "personal representatives" to help him. But as in Afghanistan, neither is a lawyer or trained advocate. And neither has a budget to do any real investigation of the case.
