It’s interesting to see headlines that the P5+1 talks in Vienna about Iran’s nuclear program were called a failure.

On one very important level they were a success. No there was no agreement on a long term deal to roll back Iran’s nuclear program. But there was an agreement to extend the...

With the Senate flipping from Democratic control to Republican control, the question emerges whether the legislature, now in the hands of the opposition, will be able to rein in President Barack Obama in the event that he engineers a bad nuclear deal with Iran.

In short, the Senate will almost certainly be...

Remember when President Barack Obama said that the United States will “always have Israel’s back” when it comes to Israel’s security—especially in regards to Iran’s nuclear program?

Or when Secretary of State John Kerry said that with Iran “no deal was better than a bad deal?”

The administration’s aim is to...

Few publications were more enthusiastic about last year’s election of “moderate” Hassan Rouhani as president of Iran than The New York Times. Perhaps some of that enthusiasm stemmed from the possibility of engaging in commercial enterprises with the regime in Tehran.

The Houthis, Iranian backed rebels have taken control of Yemen’s capital, Sanaa.

The Washington Post reports:

The capital of Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest and perhaps most chronically unstable nation, has new masters. Shiite rebels man checkpoints and roam the streets in pickups mounted with anti­aircraft guns.

The fighters control almost all state buildings,...
