Lessons about Our Constitution from Abu Ghraib

Those who think that the U.S. Constitution is an antiquated document with no relevance to modern times might want to consider how federal officials would operate in the absence of constitutional restraints. The best evidence for such a thought experiment exists in Iraq, where U.S. officials have had ... [click for more]

The Bright Side of War

In case you didn’t realize it, there’s a bright side to the death, destruction, and prisoner abuse going on in Iraq and Afghanistan: they’re good for the American economy. War creates jobs. At least that’s what lots of people think. The Washington Post recently helped to spread that impression ... [click for more]

No Draft — Ever!

He aspires to give taxpayers’ money to religious groups doing social work, despite the First Amendment’s barrier to state entanglement with ... [click for more]

The sex-abuse, rape, and torture scandal at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq might explain why U.S. officials have steadfastly opposed joining other nations in the formation of an international war-crimes tribunal. When government officials are actively involved in war crimes, the last thing they want ... [click for more]

Rebuilding America: Foreign Policy

Ever since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the demise of the Soviet empire, it has been an article of faith among many Americans that an extensive overseas military empire and a massive domestic military-industrial complex are vitally important and greatly beneficial to our country.
