EDITORIAL: Three-way stalemate in Afghanistan

According to U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the good news from Afghanistan is that the Taliban are not winning. The bad news is that the coalition isn't either. Published May 20, 2010

EDITORIAL: The Rand Paul uprising

Primary voters in Kentucky delivered an unmistakable message to the Republican establishment on Tuesday: They want principled conservatives, not accommodating career politicians, to represent them in Washington. It looks increasingly likely that their wish will be granted now that Rand Paul has secured the Grand Old Party's nomination by a crushing 23-point margin over his nearest opponent.

EDITORIAL: No Justice for Panther prosecutor

Something is wrong with a Justice Department that treats its own attorneys worse than it treats civil-rights violators those attorneys would prosecute. On Friday, after evasive testimony by Justice official Thomas E. Perez to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, department attorney J. Christian Adams resigned in obvious disgust at the deep-sixing of a voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party. Published May 20, 2010

EDITORIAL: Nero was hotter than Al Gore

The planet has never been warmer than it is right now, if you believe what global warming alarmists have to say. Mankind's selfishness in producing "excessive" amounts of carbon dioxide has set us on a path toward global cataclysm, they insist. The problem with this tale is that it neither fits with the historical record nor with a growing body of scientific evidence. Published May 19, 2010

EDITORIAL: The Shi'ite stripper girl next door

The new Miss USA is a pole-dancing Shi'ite Muslim who counts the Hezbollah terrorist group as part of her loyal fan base. Or, as the Los Angeles Times put it, Rima Fakih is "the poster girl for modern America." Published May 19, 2010

EDITORIAL: Juvenile injustice

The U.S. Supreme Court went on another philosophical bender on Monday, this time on behalf of heinous juvenile criminals. Years from now, though, scholars may still cite the brilliant dissent by Justice Clarence Thomas as an example of devastatingly effective reasoning. Against the high court's sadly devolving standards of decency, Justice Thomas' opinion stands for the permanent principle that judges should be the Constitution's servants, not its editors.

During questioning before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, a visibly nervous Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. tried valiantly not to utter the expression "radical Islam." The twisting began when Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, asked whether the men behind three recent terrorist incidents - the Fort Hood massacre, the Christmas Day bombing attempt and the Time Square bombing attempt - "might have been incited to take the actions that they did because of radical Islam."
