Terrorism Déjà Vu in Saudi Arabia

by
Monday’s terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia brings to mind the words of the famous New York Yankee catcher Yogi Berra: “It’s déjà vu all over again.” During the 1980s, Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was a friend and ally of the U.S. government, even to the extent that our own government authorized the delivery of weapons of ...

Why Not Send Moussaoui to Havana and Be Done With It?

by
Fidel Castro recently did us the favor of showing how a communist regime wages a “war on terrorism.” Three accused hijackers were captured on the high seas attempting to escape communist tyranny and come to the United States.

The Misunderstood Link between Al-Qaeda and Iraq

by
A majority of the American population believe that Iraq was behind the terrorist acts of September 11, even though no credible evidence has surfaced for this alleged link between al-Qaeda and Iraq.

Points to Ponder at Five Minutes before Midnight

Before he was recently executed for killing two CIA agents, Mir Aimal Kasi, a ... [click for more]

Kissinger is the Wrong Man

by
Henry Kissinger personifies all that is wrong with government in America, particularly the making of foreign policy. So it is no surprise that President Bush wanted him to chair the commission looking into the monumental U.S. intelligence failures that gave us 9/11. We can be grateful that Kissinger has resigned even before he got started. Throughout ... [click for more]

Another Frankenstein’s Monster

by
When a nemesis such as Osama bin Laden speaks, one would expect his words to be of great interest. But this is apparently not the case. The latest audiotape of a voice purporting to be bin Laden’s prompted discussion principally of three issues: (1) Was it really him? (2) Why wasn’t it a videotape? (3) Where is he? There was ...
