    Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell in a new book said he blames himself for not trusting his instinct and making what proved to be false assertions to the United Nations about Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction, Bloomberg reported earlier this month (see GSN, Feb. 17, 2011). Powell's high-profile February 2003 prewar presentation to the U.N. Security Council included now-discredited claims that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had movable biological weapons facilities and was involved in a "sinister nexus" with al-Qaeda. No evidence of active WMD production facilities or usable stockpiles have been found in Iraq following the...

    In the wake of widespread ISIS terror, most recently seen in Paris, France, with the death and injury of hundreds, President Obama came out swinging against Republicans, calling the political party a "potent recruitment tool" for the terrorist organization.

At the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation event in Manila, Obama said "fear and panic" only exacerbates the refugee situation, Mediaite reported.

    ďBobby Jindal and his political team totally blew it,Ē harrumphed one advisor for Ken Cuccinelli the morning after a closer-than-expected loss. Cuccinelli, who narrowly lost last nightís gubernatorial election to Terry McAuliffe, was badly outspent in the days and weeks leading up to the election. The New York TimesĎ Jonathan Martin described Cuccinelliís plight as having been ďclose to abandoned at the end.Ē He was.

    The provision in the law was the manifestation of the assurance that if you have a plan you want to keep, you can keep it. Insurance companies that chose to strip away benefits from existing plans in the interim, that canceled existing plans in the interim, they took away that grandfathering opportunity. And thatís a reality.Ē Ė White House spokesman Jay Carney, daily press briefing, Nov. 5, 2013 In defending President Obamaís now-discredited pledge that ďif you like your health-care plan, youíll be able to keep it,Ē the White House has repeatedly tried to blame insurance companies.

    **SNIP** These critics include Republican politicians who did not vote for ObamaCare; these are Republican governors who refuse to set up exchanges to reach their own citizens; these are people oppose expanding Medicaid to help poor people getting better health care; these are people who have never put any proposal on the table as an alternative fix for the nationís costly health care system that leaves tens of millions with inadequate medical coverage and tens of millions more totally uninsured. The fact is if you are one of the estimated 2 million Americans whose health insurance plans may have been...

    The Obamacare recriminations are underway. Stuck with an unpopular law whose launch has been an unmitigated disaster, the Democratic Party has morphed from a ruthless, unified political machine to a frantic, zig-zagging tornado of blame. The White House would like you to know that the Department of Health and Human Services was chiefly responsible for the implementation process. HHS counters that the White House ultimately runs the show, and that Sec. Kathleen Sebelius' hands were effectively tied by her relative lack of power. Some Democrats are blaming the private sector contractors who were brought in to help craft healthcare.gov (conveniently...

    Remember when President Obama tried to push a gun-control package through Congress after the Newtown massacre? And Congress voted down every piece of legislation, even the extremely popular ones? And consequently the gun-control bills did not become laws, because that's how lawmaking works? It was a few months ago.
