Mr. Brennan is expected to be confirmed as CIA director. Would he change their strategy in dealing with terrorists? He himself was one of the artisans of techniques of torture called water-boarding under President […]

Petraeus resigns as CIA director: Our examples are like seeds on a windy day, they spread far and wide

The fall of General Petraeus can release tension between the Democrats and the Republicans after a bloody battle for the White House. General Petraeus is apolitical.

The US needs Pakistan in the war on terror: Better a bad wife than an empty house

The US needs Pakistan in the war on terror: Better a bad wife than an empty house

Pakistan has bitten the hand that feeds it. Relations between the US and Pakistan will never be the same. The Pakistani government is still trying to figure out how to save face. The humiliation is a national embarassment. Between billions and the $25 million put on Osama’s head, it was worth more to protect the Al-Qaeda leader […]

Obama authorizes CIA to arm rebels in Libya? By the time the fool has learned the game, the players have dispersed

Obama, you can’t count on my vote twice: He who chews two bones at the same time will surely bite his tongue

Dear President Obama, What happened to the promise of changing the world to be a better place? During the U.S. presidential election you promised to restore the American image, tarnished by the Bush administration.

Pastor Long is a hypocrite: A drowning man will clutch at a straw

The long-awaited address by Pastor Long has been a disappointment. He covered himself with a classic response to the allegations against him: following instructions from his lawyer. He didn’t deny the allegations and portayed himself as “not perfect”. Pastor Long should know that four lawsuits by four different men with four different stories is not a conspiracy. Pastor […]

Despite the end of the Cold War, countries spy on each other — including the United States. The Russian spies have been caught but there are more likely […]

Hamid Karzai Threatens To Join Taliban: It is not by watching a newly wed wife that she is going to become pregnant.

Hamid Karzai has lost his mind. First, he was accused of committing election fraud. Now, he is threatening to join the Taliban if the US and the West keep pressuring him about fighting corruption and making reforms. Hamid Karzai certainly is putting himself in a vulnerable position. In old times, the CIA “took care” of a […]

Pakistani Taliban leader killed: It is the path of the needle that the thread is accustomed to follow.

It is unclear whether Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud was killed by a US drone attack. This speculation has forced the Taliban to call the rumor false. If the news is true, it is a major blow for the Taliban. Mehsud was the instigator of the CIA attack last month that killed many of its […]
