Christian Genocide In Iraq: The Patriarch’s Plea

6:08 PM 08/11/2017

Once again, Christians are fleeing Iraq. But this time, it’s not because they are under attack from the jihadi extremists who have terrorized their communities for the past fourteen years. It’s not even because of ISIS, which physically occupied the Nineveh Plain until just recently.

America Has Lost Her “Voice”

5:16 PM 04/04/2017

Born during the life and death struggle against Nazism, the Voice of America recently turned 75. During her long years of service, she provided a beacon of hope to captive nations in Europe, and helped keep that hope alive during decades of Soviet occupation.

State Department Nominee Must Tame The Bureaucratic Beast

1:17 PM 11/29/2016

The way the media is discussing the choice facing President-Elect Trump over his State Department nominee, you would think it’s a choice about stocking-stuffers. Should I give Mitt the slide whistle, the chocolate truffle, or the lump of coal?

Hillary’s Foreign Policy Legacy

6:57 PM 07/25/2016

It’s going to be fun watching Hillary supporters twist themselves into pretzels this week trying to “prove” that the world is not going to hell in a hand basket because of failed American leadership.

EgyptAir And The Jihadi Problem

1:25 PM 05/20/2016

Hillary Clinton just can’t say the words. Like Barack Obama, she is stuck in a fantasy land where Islamists who shout “Allah Akbar” before they unleash hell on the innocent are some kind of nameless, ideology-less “violent extremists.” 

Donald Trump And Truth-Telling

11:45 AM 02/23/2016

Americans of all political persuasions have turned to Donald Trump because he tells the truth. He cuts through the lies and fairy tales that a pathetic administration regularly fabricates to disguise its failures and that a national media, quivering like jelly at every move of their idol, Obama, repeats with predictable regularity.

Benghazi ‘Smoking Gun’ Email Unmasks Hillary Clinton

2:04 PM 12/10/2015

Touted by Fox News as a “possible smoking gun,” the email from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s chief of staff shows that special operations teams within a few hours flight from Benghazi were preparing to deploy as early as 7 PM Washington time on the night of the attacks, well within the time needed to get to Benghazi before the deadly mortar strike that killed U.S. Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Ty Woods.

The Benghazi Investigation And Democrats In Glass Houses

5:47 PM 10/06/2015

Rep. Keith Ellison (D, MN) is just the latest Democrat to work himself up into a lather over Kevin McCarthy’s superlative gaffe about the Benghazi Select Committee. On ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Ellison claimed the Select Committee was the longest-ever Congressional investigation, “longer even than Watergate.”

An Agreement Written In Tehran

11:20 AM 07/15/2015

It’s hard to imagine a worse agreement than the one presented by President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry as their “peace in our time” deal to limit Iran’s nuclear programs.

Prominent Iranian Dissident Blasts Obama From Jail: Letter

11:10 AM 03/18/2015

Heshmat Tabarzadi, a prominent Iranian prisoner of conscience jailed for leading protests against the regime, has smuggled a letter for President Obama to human rights activist Manda Ervin of the Alliance of Iranian Women, who published it with the Foundation for Democracy in Iran (

The evidence for Syrian chemical weapons use crumbles

9:34 AM 09/09/2013

Now we learn that President Obama may be second-guessing his “decision’ to launch military action – that Secretary of State John Kerry insists is not “going to war” -- to punish Syria for a chemical weapons attack the United States has not proved it carried out.

Congress must ask the right questions on Syrian chemical weapons use

1:40 PM 09/03/2013

President Obama has wisely decided to seek a vote in Congress to authorize the use of force against Syria. He needs to take this opportunity to publicly present the evidence behind the administration’s certainty that the Syrian government ordered and carried out the horrible massacre that took place in the Damascus suburbs on August 21.

Verify chemical weapons use before unleashing the dogs of war

4:27 PM 08/29/2013

The Obama administration has selectively used intelligence to justify military strikes on Syria, former military officers with access to the original intelligence reports say, in a manner that goes far beyond what critics charged the Bush administration of doing in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war.
