    "Great nations need organizing principles, and, 'Don't do stupid stuff,' is not an organizing principle." Hillary Clinton, The Atlantic, Aug. 10 Leave it to President Barack Obama's own former secretary of state to acknowledge the fatal flaw of his...
  • President Poroshenko and Ukraine

    It seems evident that Barack Obama today still does not understand how much he owes to President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine. If he did, and if the cease-fire and negotiation terms Mr. Poroshenko has signed with the country's pro-Russian insurgents in the...
