    Any new economic sanctions that Congress tries to impose against Iran during international negotiations to limit the Islamic republic’s nuclear program will be vetoed, President Barack Obama warned lawmakers on Tuesday, even as he acknowledged the ongoing talks are difficult and may not succeed. It was the sharpest part of a State of the Union speech that overall was skimpy on details for his foreign policy agenda for the year.Obama also briefly re-affirmed his promises to end the war in Afghanistan this year, pursue al-Qaida with limited strikes and support Syrian opposition groups in their bloody three-year quest to push...

    Obama, like Carter, may provoke one of our enemies to test our teeth and claws. Remember the medieval fable about the mice that wanted their dangerous enemy, the cat, belled, but each preferred not to be the one to attempt the dangerous deed? Likewise, the world’s bad actors have long wanted America belled, but, like the mice, so far they have not been stupid or daring enough to test America’s teeth and claws — that is, until now. In 2008 Barack Obama campaigned on the general principle that the entire Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism protocols were either superfluous or illegal. That opportunistic...

    .........................The United States, which had only small numbers of C.I.A. officers in Libya during the tumult of the rebellion, provided little oversight of the arms shipments. Within weeks of endorsing Qatar’s plan to send weapons there in spring 2011, the White House began receiving reports that they were going to Islamic militant groups. They were “more antidemocratic, more hard-line, closer to an extreme version of Islam” than the main rebel alliance in Libya, said a former Defense Department official. The Qatari assistance to fighters viewed as hostile by the United States demonstrates the Obama administration’s continuing struggles in dealing with...

    It's always entertaining to watch liberals like Maureen Dowd in her latest column trip over their own brilliance. Starting off with... HE was born this way.Bi.Not bisexual. Not even bipartisan. Just binary.Our president likes to be on both sides at once..... ...and conclude with... With each equivocation, the man in the Oval Office shields his identity and cloaks who the real Barack Obama is.He should draw inspiration from the gay community: one thing gays have to do, after all, is declare who they are at all costs.On some of the most important issues facing this nation, it is time...
