    So, Hillary Clinton is officially running, to nobody’s surprise. And you know what’s coming: endless attempts to psychoanalyze the candidate, endless attempts to read significance into what she says or doesn’t say about President Barack Obama, endless thumb-sucking about her “positioning” on this or that issue.

As it advances in the Senate, its measures on accountability need to be strengthened.

    A crucial election is approaching in Turkey, so it is sadly unsurprising that social media are once again coming under government pressure.

The government was claiming credit for having killed the terrorists, while glossing over the fact that the prosecutor died as well; so the photographs had to go.

    WASHINGTON — This week brings a constitutional moment illustrating a paradox of Barack Obama’s presidency. The catalyst of the drama is legislation proposed by Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, asserting Congress’ foreign policy responsibilities and prerogatives. The paradox is this:
