Yesterday the Obama administration declared Mission Accomplished on the healthcare.gov website. But the mission that was accomplished was something of a Potemkin Village — the “front end” has been improved to a lower level of failure. Taking the glass half-full approach, 80-90% of users will be able to use the website. But that’s…

Wendy Sherman’s negotiations ended up with North Korea developing a nuclear weapon, why should we expect a better outcome with Iran?

In an article about Wendy Sherman, the administration’s chief nuclear negotiator, Politics and a Ruptured Tendon Don’t Faze Lead Iran Negotiator, the NY Times reports sympathetically, even while indicting her. Along the way, Ms. Sherman was the State Department’s chief strategist in dealing with the North Korean nuclear program. It was a…

A few months ago a picture of John and Teresa Heinz Kerry having dinner with Bashar and Asma Assad in 2009 resurfaced. The timing was awkward because it came just after the Secretary of State condemned Assad as a “thug,” and compared him to Adolph Hitler for his use of chemical weapons. The…

Obama is pivoting back to immigration reform, which really amounts to an amnesty push, because without amnesty there could be “reform” of a wide variety of immigration issues.
