Foreign Policy

A previously undisclosed e-mail from a top State Department official identified the terrorist organization that carried out the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

President Obama is pushing two trade pacts leading to economic and political integration of the United States with the European Union and Pacific Rim nations.

Charges of neglect and coverup during and after the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi will be aired today when the House Government and Oversight Committee hears testimony about the September 2012 assault that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.





A Bush administration official claims President Obama is using drone strikes to kill terrorists rather than send them to Guantanamo.

Though President Obama renewed his pledge to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay last week, many recognize this as his latest attempt to pretend to have a different foreign policy from his predecessor. Despite the president’s strong claims against Guantanamo Bay, there appears to be no indication that the Guantanamo Bay prisoners — a majority of whom are engaged in a hunger strike in opposition to their indefinite detention — are any closer to freedom, even the ones already formally cleared for release. Any discussions of closing the facility seem to be nothing more than attempts to assuage voters who are starting to ask questions about campaign promises that have yet to be fulfilled.
