    A Hidden History of Evil Why doesn’t anyone care about the unread Soviet archives? In the world’s collective consciousness, the word “Nazi” is synonymous with evil. It is widely understood that the Nazis’ ideology—nationalism, anti-Semitism, the autarkic ethnic state, the Führer principle—led directly to the furnaces of Auschwitz. It is not nearly as well understood that Communism led just as inexorably, everywhere on the globe where it was applied, to starvation, torture, and slave-labor camps. Nor is it widely acknowledged that Communism was responsible for the deaths of some 150 million human beings during the twentieth century. The world remains...

    WASHINGTON – A shortage of Arabic translators is not only hurting intelligence-gathering efforts in Iraq, where troops are hunting Saddam Hussein and armed resistors, but also at home, where FBI agents are trying to ferret out al-Qaida terrorist cells before Osama bin Laden can activate them for another attack here. Al-Qaida has trained up to 120,000 terrorists around the world, and some of them are inside the U.S., according to the recently declassified 9-11 report. The bureau is having a hard time recruiting fluent American-born translators, because the Arabic language is rarely studied in American colleges, FBI officials say. So...
