In a Feb. 26 op-ed titled “The case against Chuck Hagel,” Frank Gaffney erroneously wrote that “Trita Parsi was determined by a federal judge to be an Iranian agent.”
What message has the Obama administration sent to the world by appointing to America's most important diplomatic position a pair of Democratic politicos best known for their losing presidential bids? Bluntly put, the message is that competence and achievement don't matter; only ideology and partisan politics do. This is a perception borne out by the bungling diplomatic performance of both Secretary of State John F. Kerry and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton ("John Kerry's folly at Israel's peril," Commentary, July 24).
Security think tank analyst Frank Gaffney had harsh words of criticism for President Obama's plan to draw down U.S. nuclear arsenals, calling it "lunatic fringe, leftist stuff" that will jeopardize the safety of the world.
Those who recall the Air Force's Strategic Air Command and the intense days of the Cold War will be pleased to know that "peace through strength," the motto of the aforementioned command, is still alive and well, adopted as the philosophy behind the Center for Security Policy. "SAC" was home to a host of formidable bombers and intercontinental ballistic missiles from 1946 to 1992.
Russia is engaged in a major buildup of both nuclear and conventional missile defense systems at the same time Moscow is seeking legal limits on U.S. missile defenses, according to U.S. officials.
A bristling group of 25 traditional conservatives are out to protect one of their own in a new push against the "establishment Republicans" of Karl Rove's American Crossroads.
When he popularized his famous "peace through strength" axiom, Ronald Reagan never envisioned it would lead to anything but peace three decades later.
For Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government, more battle tanks and jet fighters are on their way from the United States.
President Obama's victory in the general election this week does not silence those who have been criticizing his administration's response to the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Islamists linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and similar groups are working to undermine the U.S. government through "civilization jihad" aimed at imposing Islamic law rule in the United States.
The Obama administration's Iran policy is similar to that of the proverbial ostrich with its head in the sand, hoping that the problem will go away ("On Obama's watch," Commentary, Tuesday).
Republican presidential front-runner Newt Gingrich is siding with social conservatives on how the U.S. armed forces should treat gays and women, according to a survey released Monday.
Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates leaves office Thursday popular with the liberal Washington establishment, but not so with conservatives chafed by his budget cutting and his enthusiastic support for open gays in the ranks.
When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, he inherited a broken all-volunteer military force, still reeling from the traumas of the post-Vietnam era. When he left the White House eight years later, he left the nation a well-equipped, highly professional military on which the country has depended for three decades.
Senate Republicans are at odds over whether to postpone a vote on ratification of the New START arms treaty, or bow to White House pressure and vote by the end of the year.
Frank Gaffney erroneously wrote that “Trita Parsi was determined by a federal judge to be an Iranian agent.” That statement about Dr. Parsi, who is president of the National Iranian American Council, was inaccurate, as no such determination has been made by a federal judge.
