Afghan Reconciliation Efforts Have Failed

In 2005, the U.S.-backed Afghan government instituted a reconciliation program aimed at reintegrating insurgents who aggressively opposed the U.S. invasion of their country. With minimal political support and inadequate funding, that program failed, and many who voluntarily left groups such as the Taliban have received none of the promised benefits.

GOP Launches Final Health Care Attack in Senate

If you can’t beat ’em, hit ’em with a bunch of amendments they’d have a hard time opposing. That was apparently the strategy of Republicans hoping to throw a wrench into the health care reform works in the Senate on Wednesday.

Pelosi: Dems Ready to ‘Kick Through This Door’ to Pass Health Care Bill

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi talked tough on Monday on the subject of health care reform, which is no surprise.

The Big Lie About ‘Reconciliation’

The claim that Democrats are just “ramming through” a health bill is, I am sorry to say, one big lie—or, if you’re sensitive, an astonishing exercise in hypocrisy.

Obama Tells Congress to Get Health Care Reform Done Already

During a speech at the White House on Wednesday, President Barack Obama hinted at the possibility that congressional Democrats would soon be obliged to play the reconciliation card to ensure that health care reform legislation reaches the finish line and he pushed Congress to “finish its work”—as in pronto—on that crucial and contentious issue.

Reid Tells Republicans to ‘Stop Crying’

With more Senate Democrats urging Harry Reid to revive the public option and pass health care reform through budget reconciliation, the Senate majority leader said Republicans “should stop crying about reconciliation as if it’s never been done before.” Reid said the maneuver is used nearly every year, usually by Republicans.

Finish Health Care or Go Home

Some Senate Democratic moderates are petrified that Republicans will make terrible trouble if health care is passed through the “reconciliation process.” If Democrats are that intimidated by Republicans, they should just give up their majority.

Health Care Reform? What Health Care Reform?

Democratic congressional leaders are hitting the pause button while they figure out how to press ahead—if at all—with comprehensive health care reform. The most conservative Democratic senators have made it clear they oppose budget reconciliation, but then the whole point of reconciliation is to avoid the votes of conservative Democratic senators.

North Korea Bows to the South’s Fallen Pioneer

Did Bill Clinton shake something loose during his recent visit to Pyongyang? No, Kim Jong Il’s overtures to his southern neighbors this week are the legacy of Kim Dae-jung, the former president and first modern South Korean leader to visit the North. Kim died Tuesday.

Leading Iraqis Get Practical

If one were to ask President Bush to make sense of his strategy in Iraq, he would likely suggest that by providing stability, the Iraqi government could work toward reconciliation and an end to sectarian bloodletting, but according to several key Iraqi leaders, that just isn’t going to happen. Better, they argue, to focus on the basics of governing and providing services that Iraqis continue to suffer without.
