    The inter-relational dynamics between separate Sunni Muslim groups is very difficult for westerners to understand. Consider the relationship between ISIS and Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

    Baghdad (CNN) -- Iraq's Judicial Committee issued an arrest warrant Monday for Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, who is accused of orchestrating bombing attacks.

Bob Schuster, Hoover’s attorney friend, was a 1967 graduate of Yale and apparently had the connections to obtain a slot for Hashimi at the Ivy League school. Although I cannot...
