Benghazi stain on Obama’s presidency: Every head has its own kind of headache

Benghazi stain on Obama’s presidency: Every head has its own kind of headache

The handling of the Benghazi terror attack by the Obama administration has been a failure. It was naive to think that an American consulate in Libya could be safe.

Fifty years from now, the debate about gun control in this country will still be alive. Blacks and […]

America shouldn’t forget 9/11: Warm water never forgets that it was once cold

President Obama‘s visit to Ground Zero was a very symbolic gesture, and also a reminder of the danger of terrorism.
