Although there remain 56,000 troops and over 100,000 private contractors in Iraq, the mainstream media has reported the withdrawal of the last U.S. combat units in Iraq as if it means the end of the Iraq War. What this announcement signifies is the rebranding of a war, but not the end of the occupation. The […]

Thanks Mr. President, But Where Were You When We Needed You? By David H. Landon While none of the 2008 crop of Democratic Presidential candidates could be considered “pro-Iraq War,” Barack Obama attempted to stake out his especially strong anti-war position in order to separate himself from the others and especially from his chief rival, […]

We Can’t Allow ‘Anchor Babies’ To Sink The Boat By David H.

The Ground Zero Mosque: Think By Bob Maistros As I like to say, this one isn’t even hard. In PR, we used to talk about a “smell test” for questionable actions.
