The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel traveled halfway around the world for a rare visit to the Afghanistan war zone, but he did not meet with the man holding up an agreement to keep U.S. troops there after 2014.
Less than two weeks after the U.S. partnered with China and Russia on a nuclear pact with Iran, White House National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice criticized both nations' records on human-rights abuses Wednesday.
Diplomats vexed over Afghanistan's future applied new pressure on the war-torn nation's leaders Tuesday to agree to allow thousands of foreign troops to remain there beyond next year or risk being left with no international military force assistance.
It appears that President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan is acting up again. As if President Obama does not have enough on his hands with Healthcare.gov and hot spots spreading around the globe, he now has Karzai, the Importunate.
Susan E. Rice, the White House national security adviser, met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Monday in Kabul, while the Pentagon urged the leader to change his mind and sign a security pact that would allow thousands of American troops to stay in the country beyond a 2014 withdrawal deadline.
Away from pomp and fanfare surrounding the multiparty talks in Geneva that resulted in this weekend's nuclear deal with Iran, senior Obama administration officials and other sources are now revealing that U.S. and Iran actually, and very secretly, have been engaged in high-level direct talks for more than a year.
The Obama administration's "rebalance" towards Asia is about climate change and women's rights as much as it is about security, Ambassador Susan E. Rice said Wednesday, in a speech modestly rebranding the Pacific tilt, which is a signature presidential initiative.
Why is the President turning America into an all-seeing surveillance state?
Secrets about how the tragedy happened still remain hidden
President Obama's remarks at the Group of 20 conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, that he was "elected to stop wars, not start them" certainly implies that he sees himself endowed with an expanded global mandate. While it's far from clear that he understands the oath of office he took to be president of the United States — which is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic — he apparently has no trouble viewing himself as more of an "international president." There is no mandate in that oath that charges him with the responsibility to intervene or stop international wars, unless it can be seen to be in our vital national interests.
In the 1980s, the buzzwords for achieving results by executives were "management by walking around." Nobody exemplified that trait better than Lee Iacocca, chairman of Chrysler Corp., who brought the company out of bankruptcy.
In her debut performance as national security adviser, confronting the Egypt crisis, Susan E. Rice (and her boss, President Obama) failed miserably.
The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against Libyan militia leader Ahmed Khatallah, the first indictment in last year's deadly terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi — signaling a shift in a case whose political undertones have roiled the Obama administration over the past 11 months.
The Senate on Thursday approved Samantha Power to become U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, clearing the decks of all of President Obama's nominees who had stacked up in the face of Republican delays.
She added, "We often can cooperate with Russia on nonproliferation, arms control, counterterrorism and other vital interests. But, as we meet these mutual challenges, we don't remain silent about the Russian government's systematic efforts to curtail the actions of Russian civil society, to stigmatize the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] community, to coerce neighbors like Ukraine who seek closer integration with Europe, or to stifle human rights in the North Caucasus."
"We deplore selective justice and the prosecution of those who protest the corruption and cronyism that is sapping Russia's economic future and limiting its potential to play its full role on the world stage," Ms. Rice said.
