Charlie-Hebdo: Fractured France

Like most of the French, my wife, Elisabeth, has been overwhelmed by yesterday’s terrorist attack on Charlie-Hebdo: Ten journalists gunned down in the offices of the French satirical weekly; two policemen were killed as well. 

CIA Torture: Nothing's Going to Happen

The U.S. Senate’s shocking report on CIA torture during the George W. Bush administration’s War on Terror has provoked a storm of outrage, and calls for at least some form of punishment of those responsible. It’s unlikely those calls will ever be heeded.

Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we come and we have stolen their country. Why should they accept that?”
