A One-Word Answer to All Our Problems in Iraq

The New York Times Schools For Tomorrow Conference
Why hasn’t President Obama done something about Iraq? The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues its parade of devastation under the oversight of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Insurgent forces have claimed strategic enclaves along several hundred miles of the Syrian border. The 7th-century caliphate stirs in its bed with the dim sense that it has overslept. The consensus on U.S. political television is bold, decisive: Obama must do something, he must ...

Freedom of the Press in the Post-Snowden World

Edward Snowden Attorney Wolfgang Kaleck Speaks To Foreign Journalists Association
One reason it took the United States nearly 10 years to find Osama bin Laden was that a newspaper published the fact that the United States was listening in on his phone calls to his mother and was thus able to guess his whereabouts. Bin Laden gave his phone to an underling, who traveled north -- with the United States in hot pursuit -- while bin Laden traveled south and slipped into Pakistan. After that, he never used a cellphone. Until rece ...

NY Times Failed to Take Its Own Advice on Gender Pay Gap

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson Gives Commencement Address At Wake Forest University
The NY Times could have taken advice from it's own editorial board on how to handle an embarrassing gender pay gap issue. Instead they tried to downplay the issue, exactly as they had criticized the White House for doing a month earlier. Last month the White House was pushing gender pay equity as a big issue but there was a wrinkle in their PR effort. It turned out that the White House itself suffered from gender pay inequity, something spokesman Jay Carney struggled to explain when asked ...

Former Director Of The NSA And CIA Michael Hayden Speaks At Security Conference
The PBS program Frontline has produced an exceptional documentary on NSA spying, beginning with the September 11 attacks and continuing right up to today. The whole thing is worth watching. The recent history it presents is shocking, even if, like me, you were already aware of it. Frightened by terrorism, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, David Addington, Michael Hayden, and others conspired to spy on U.S. citizens without a warrant. Doing ...
