Obama, Osama and the Making of a Martyr No matter how inevitable bin Laden's death may have been, we should be careful not to characterize it as a victory.

If We had let Hitler run his course... Some things are just so outrageous that nobody could even say them with a straight face. Nobody, that is, except King George.

There are more than two options for Iran! The Bush administration's dichotomous framing of national security has indelibly tainted public debate on Iran and is preventing liberals from addressing a potentially legitimate threat.

Fox News Loves Terrorism If FOX News "leaked" a memo implying terrorists are rejoicing in a Democratic victory, maybe it is because Murdhock is afraid that the Democrats may subvert FOX's raison d'etre.

How Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush Sr. and Ronald Reagan helped create modern terrorism Partisan Republicans should be cautious about lauding Reagan's cowboy era while attacking Clintonian diplomacy, since the policies of the "second" Cold War represent a far more potent antecedant for the threats we face today.

Bringing Up Hitler It's perfectly ok to compare our leaders to Hitler if and when they behave that way. Comparing Bush to Hitler isn't so much an exaggeration, it's just good common sense.
