Argentine murder mystery

October 7, 2015  •  The Washington Times

When heads of state gather, as they did for the United Nations General Assembly last week, you have a choice: Tune out or prepare to be bathed in blather, boilerplate and blatant lies. That said, the remarks of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner deserve at least a few minutes of our undivided attention.

Her biggest whooper: "[I]n Argentina, my government, our government will tirelessly continue seeking the truth and justice in the AMIA case."

Putin's progress

September 30, 2015  •  The Washington Times

Not long after the implosion of the Soviet Union, I attended a conference in Moscow. The topic: how Russia would evolve in the post-communist era about to begin. Most participants were confident and optimistic. A few of us Americans — not so much. I pointed out that in libraries around the world are hundreds of books on the transition from capitalism to socialism. But a treatise on how to move in the other direction? That would be like finding a cookbook instructing how to make eggs out of omelets.

Why Republican presidential candidates support Israel
A few points Ann Coulter might want to consider

September 24, 2015  •  The Washington Times

Dear Ann,

So last week during the Republican debate, hundreds of thousands of people read your tweets lambasting four of the candidates — Gov. Chris Christie, former Gov. Mike Huckabee and Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz — for expressing their strong support for Israel. Based not just on what you said but also on how you said it (e.g. "How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?") quite a few of those readers have now concluded that you're anti-Semitic.

The exodus to Europe's promised lands

September 17, 2015  •  The Washington Times

Hundreds of thousands of migrants are leaving the Middle East, heading to what they see as the promised lands of Europe and, if possible, America. Notice where they are not going.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has 57 members. Though Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey are serving as way stations, no OIC states are offering to permanently resettle their co-religionists. The Arab League has 22 members. They, too, apparently regard this as not their problem.

In fact, I'm finding not a word about the exodus on the Arab League's website. On the OIC home page, if you look carefully, there's a brief item about an "emergency meeting to mobilize efforts to address the Syrian refugee crisis." I'm sure it will be productive.

The not quite done Iran deal

September 9, 2015  •  The Washington Times

The debate over the deal President Obama has cut with Iran's rulers is supposed to end this week. The New York Times, The Associated Press and others in the media are reporting that the White House has achieved a "victory." On what basis?

Polls show most Americans — 55 percent in the most recent Quinnipiac poll — oppose the agreement. Only 25 percent support it. A bipartisan majority in Congress — 60 percent — disapproves the deal as well.
