WILLIAMS: Syria is for dummies

President Obama learned nothing from the war failures of President George W. Bush. In fact, he continues to make the same (and worse) mistakes under the cover of a sympathetic media and a blindly loyal Democratic electorate. Published September 1, 2013

WILLIAMS: A spiritual currency

As our nation continues to recover from the worst recession in a generation, our lives are awash with stories of doomsday and dread. Our college graduates are returning home to live with their parents, unable to put their degrees to use. Too many people are out of work, unable to make ends meet. Many companies are paralyzed by fear of the unknown, waiting cautiously to see how things shake out. Published August 25, 2013

Hernandez

WILLIAMS: Why would Aaron Hernandez foolishly waste it all?

A contract worth $40 million, a newborn child, a fiancee, on top of being a star tight end for one of the NFL's best teams apparently didn't matter to Aaron Hernandez. "How could anyone in their right mind do something so sinister after becoming 'set' for the rest of his life?" seems to be the general consensus. Published August 18, 2013

WILLIAMS: The rebirth of al Qaeda

I must be mistaken. I was told that al Qaeda was basically wiped out; for all intents and purposes it was dead. Nope, that was Detroit. Published August 11, 2013

WILLIAMS: A public education system that cheats our children

Anything just given away is worth nothing. America's public education system has become the quintessence of that idea — a "free" system that produces unprepared and overly entitled youths worth little to nothing to the future of America. Published August 4, 2013

Mandela

WILLIAMS: My season with Mandela

In 1990, I had a profoundly life-changing experience. My job required my spending many months in South Africa. Never in America, before or since, had I felt and seen such racism, raw and ugly, as was laid bare in South Africa, where blacks were treated as chattel and subhuman. Then I met Nelson Mandela.

WILLIAMS: The dynamics of market credit for low-end consumers

A recent Wall Street Journal article examined how the Federal Reserve's use of low interest rate policies has failed to reach those most in need. Aptly calling it the "credit divide," the article said that "Fed officials have been so frustrated in the past year that low interest rate policies haven't reached enough Americans to spur stronger growth, the way economics textbooks say low rates should."

WILLIAMS: A good doctor eyes his next steps

Dr. Ben Carson is retiring from neurosurgery on the 36th anniversary of the beginning of his historic career. Joining Johns Hopkins Hospital on July 1, Dr. Carson rose from adult neurosurgery resident to become director of pediatric neurosurgery. Along the way, he pioneered many innovative procedures and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his efforts. I spoke with the good doctor recently about his career and plans.

WILLIAMS: Syria: Pick your poison or pass the cup

President Obama met with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the Group of Eight summit last week to discuss many things, but the biggest topic appeared to be their differences over Syria. One look at a picture of their meeting tells you how poorly it went. Published June 23, 2013

WILLIAMS: Exposing the fraud of America's higher education

No longer are good grades and good test scores enough to get you into a desirable university. No, it takes greater resources, time and existential insight. These new conditions favor the affluent and unscrupulous. Published June 9, 2013

WILLIAMS: U.S. should support Nigeria in its fight against Islamists

During Secretary of State John F. Kerry's first official trip to sub-Saharan Africa last week, he had the opportunity to publicly bolster a key U.S. ally. Instead, he singled out Nigeria for criticism at the very time the country is engaged in a pitched battle to defend itself against radical Islamic terrorists who have pledged to overthrow the government and replace it with an Islamic state.

WILLIAMS: A week of scandals proves the incompetence of liberalism

Scandals are nothing new in Washington. Just about every president has faced an accusation of misconduct, whether moral or criminal. It should be no surprise that the Obama administration finds itself in the midst of one (well actually three). Published May 19, 2013

WILLIAMS: A mother's love

Growing up in Marion County, S.C., in the 1960s, I could not at the time appreciate the incredible wonders of my mother. Published May 12, 2013

In a Friday, Sept. 28, 2012 file photo, Boston Celtics' Jason Collins poses during Celtics NBA basketball media day at the team's training facility in Waltham, Mass.

WILLIAMS: We shouldn't care who Jason Collins has sex with

Let me congratulate Jason Collins on coming out so he can openly be who he is with no shame. Being who you are takes great personal courage. The relief he must feel with his friends and family has to be immense. But personally, I do not care about Mr. Collins' sexuality, and neither should you. Rather, I care that he be a good person, son, brother and teammate. Published May 5, 2013

WILLIAMS: Speed camera use robs us of our humanity

Last year the District of Columbia's speed cameras generated $95.6 million in revenue. That was double 2011's receipts, so you can bet there was dancing in the hallways at city hall over an extra $50 million in the coffers. And what did this cost you? Only your basic rights.

WILLIAMS: Fostering black entrepreneurship

If you do a search on the Internet for the wealthiest black businessmen, the results may (or may not) come as a surprise to you. The list is dominated by athletes and entertainment figures; in fact, only two of the names that consistently come up are what you would consider traditional businessmen Robert Johnson (worth $550 million) and R. Donahue Peebles ($350 million). Published April 14, 2013
