Former FBI interrogator Jack Cloonan spills the beans to Foreign Policy Magazine about the techniques he used on top al-Qaida operatives.

Bush on Why the U.S. Didn’t Send Troops to Darfur

No You Can’t

Most popular YouTube videos inspire the inevitable parodies, and while many amuse in their own way, this one scores with the title alone. This is what Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can” fan film would look like if it were made by the rich and powerful—that is to say, the non-celebrity kind. The kind with pocket squares and tiny dogs.
