    Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday that he supports the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" ban on gays serving in the military because homosexuality is "immoral" and on par with having an extramarital affair. Addressing the controversial policy as part of a wide-ranging interview with the Tribune in Chicago, Pace said the military should not "condone" immoral behavior by allowing gay soldiers to serve openly. He said his views were based on his "upbringing," in which certain types of conduct were thought to be immoral. "I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral...

    On Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace yesterday (full video here), the Associated Press’s Julie Pace twice demonstrated why hanging the “Administration’s Press” moniker on the self-described “essential global news network” is more than justified. My previous post (at BizzyBlog; at NewsBusters) dealt with Pace´s blind acceptance of unsupported assertions about the reason for the Obama administration´s delay of 2015 Obamacare enrollment until November 15, 2014 and her willingness to parrot long-discredited talking points about why the website initially crashed. Before that, she bragged about how her organization, which didn´t exactly have a track record of sitting on news...
  • 'Dying' Russia Is On Pace To Record Natural Population Growth in 2013

    Rosstat recently released their latest batch of demographic statistics. Nothing particularly bizarre or unexpected happened, but the data show that births have held steady at their 2012 level while deaths have modestly decreased. This means that, if the trends from the January-September period are maintained for the entirety of 2013, Russia will record natural population growth of roughly 13,000, its first natural population growth since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now in one sense natural growth of 13,000 out of a total population of 143,000,000 sounds puny and unimpressive. However, as I never tire of reminding people, it wasn’t...

    Commentary ^ | February 2013 | Elliott Abrams
    As the civil war in Syria enters its third year, there is much discussion of the regimeÂ’s chemical weapons and whether SyriaÂ’s Bashar al-Assad will unleash them against Syrian rebels, or whether a power vacuum after AssadÂ’s fall might make those horrific tools available to the highest bidder. The conversation centers on SyriaÂ’s chemical weaponry, not on something vastly more serious: its nuclear weaponry. It well might have. This is the inside story of why it does not. Relations between the United States and Israel had grown rocky after IsraelÂ’s incursion into Lebanon in 2006, for Secretary of State Condoleezza...
  • U.S. Navy: Can’t Keep This Pace without Resources

    According to two top officials, the Navy is operating at an “unsustainable” pace for its current force structure. At a House Armed Services Committee hearing this week, Vice Admirals Bill Burke and Kevin McCoy described a force that was falling into disrepair and struggling to cover ever-increasing responsibilities with decreasing manpower and money. The Navy’s maintenance issues began in the 1990s when Washington sought a post–Cold War peace dividend. One of the first casualties was manpower, and that led to smaller Navy maintenance crews. At first, the Navy tried to get by, deferring maintenance and patching up old equipment. But...

    Participation in Sonoma County’s ground-breaking energy retrofit program for homes and businesses has dropped dramatically over the past six weeks, and recently issued federal rules are to blame, county officials said. Since July 6, when federal housing officials said the retrofit program and others like it posed a risk to the government-chartered mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac and ordered a clamp down in lending practices, the average number of weekly applications received by the county’s program has dropped by nearly half; signed contracts are down by a third. Total applications received in the six-week period this year are...

    The so-called “Great Debate” at the National Space Society’s (NSS) International Space and Development Conference (ISDC) in Chicago on Saturday afternoon featuring Mars Society founder Robert Zubrin and former Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweickart was something of a dud, in part because it wasn’t that much of a debate: after ten-minute opening statements by Zubrin (who opposes the agency’s proposed plans) and Schweickart (who supports them), the floor was turned over to the audience, some of whom asked questions of the two, and others who simply expressed their opinions. Conference organizers explained that the event wasn’t intended to be a debate...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A charter airline that once operated as Hooters Air has quit ferrying NBA stars and rockers as it struggles against lost contracts and a felony charge against its CEO for allegedly failing to make payments on his employees' group health insurance. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday added to the problems confronting Pace Airlines Inc. by filing a lawsuit on behalf of an Asian flight attendant fired three years ago after complaining only white workers were being promoted. The EEOC said it went to court after failing to reach a settlement on behalf of Chau...

    WASHINGTON, June 19, 2008 – President Bush presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to retired Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace during a White House ceremony today. Video Bush honored Pace with the highest civilian award the United States can bestow for a career that went from the streets of Hue City, Vietnam, to the halls of power in Washington. Pace retired as the 16th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in October. He was the first Marine to serve in the position. During today’s ceremony, Bush said one of his greatest privileges as president is to meet servicemembers....

Pace to connect the hardened war fighters of today to the heroes of his past. It was evident he saw himself,...

    The outgoing chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace, says he believes homosexual acts are immoral and should not be condoned by the military. Pace's comments caused an uproar at a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee. The four-star Marine general said there are "wonderful Americans who happen to be homosexual serving in the military," but that the law of the land should not condone activity that is "counter to God's law." Protesters booed the remarks, prompting Chairman Robert Byrd to briefly adjourn the hearing. Pace later said he would support efforts to revisit
