Remembering Martin Luther King

“Men, for years now, have been talking about war and peace. But now, no longer can they just talk about it. It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it’s nonviolence or nonexistence. That is where we are today.”

Obama Puts Bill Clinton on Notice

Barack Obama has tried to infuse his campaign with a certain loftiness and positivity, but he has grown frustrated by what he describes as “unbelievable falsehoods” coming from Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Clinton Wins Nevada Amid Confusion Over Delegates

Hillary Clinton won more support among Nevada caucus-goers on Saturday, but the Obama campaign will likely end up with more actual delegates. Clinton drew significant support from Latino caucusers, despite a controversial lawsuit that was rejected by a court Thursday.

Roger Morris, who served on the National Security Council staff under Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, has written a fascinating history of the United States’ many interventions in Pakistan.

Southern Black Voters Split Between Obama and Clinton

The subject of race has gotten major—some would say excessive—play in recent Democratic debates, but judging from this New York Times report, we can expect more on this matter from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in coming weeks.

Ahmadinejad Denounces Bush’s ‘Message of Confrontation’

During his just-completed tour of the Middle East, President Bush made no secret of his belief that Iran poses the biggest threat to the security of the region and beyond, but Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has his own ideas about Bush’s statements and Mideast allegiances, which he was equally willing to air on the heels of Bush’s visit.

Bush Plans Economic Intervention

What to do about the slumping U.S. economy? President Bush may disagree with congressional Democrats on dozens of issues, but he seems to agree with their call for some kind of temporary stimulus measure to be implemented as soon as possible.

Closing In on Bhutto’s Killer

Although members of her Pakistan People’s Party remain skeptical, and although the late Benazir Bhutto herself might have disagreed, American and Pakistani intelligence officials believe that Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mahsud and his associates were behind the assassination of Bhutto in Rawalpindi last month.
