  • The Pentagon is furious at Obama over the Iran ransom payment September 24, 2016
    One might think President Obama would have asked his top military officials to weigh in on his administration’s decision in January to send $400 million in cash to Iran.

    Since the fall of communism in 1989, I’ve been to dozens of cities — most in the former Eastern Bloc — where statues of Lenin have been taken down. I never thought I’d count New York among them, but as of Monday night, the city longer has a statue of the man who led Russia’s...
