What John Bolton Gets Wrong About Iran — John Bolton's best quality may be that he says what he thinks. Diplomats are trained to set aside personal beliefs as they fulfill their professional duties but even when Mr. Bolton was a senior official in the administration of President George W. Bush, and supposed to be exercising discretion, he was brash and outspoken.

In Rural India, Hoping for Jobs and Education in a Growing Economy — BHESDA KHURD, India - To begin to understand the hurdles Prime Minister Narendra Modi faces in building India into an economic powerhouse and reducing extreme poverty, the rural village of Bhesda Khurd, about 45 minutes from the western city of Udaipur, is a good place to start.

Republicans’ Latest Threat To an Iran Deal — By now it should be obvious that a vocal segment of Congress is determined to do whatever it can to undermine President Obama's attempts to negotiate an agreement that would restrict Iran's nuclear program.

Israel's Headline From the Future — The embassy of Israel in the United States sent out this tweet earlier today: A fake New York Times front page for March 23, 2025, purporting to report on how Iran duped everyone on a nuclear deal. Israel's using every weapon in its PR arsenal. About that Iran sunset clause...

Are Netanyahu and Boehner Hurting the American-Israel Relationship? — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Republican House Speaker John Boehner are jeopardizing Israel's relations with the United States for crass political partisanship. Now the Obama administration is pushing back.

Advocate for Syrian ‘Moderates’ Changes His Mind — Predictions that so-called "moderates" in Syria could ever prevail over President Bashar al-Assad were always a long shot. Few had military experience. And throughout the civil war, now going into its 5th year, they have been fractured and unable to coalesce under a unified command.

Indonesia’s Corruption Fighters in the Fight of Their Lives — JAKARTA, Indonesia - Over the past decade, Indonesia was so determined to erase the tainted legacy of Suharto, the strongman forced to resign in 1998, that it established one of the world's more effective anticorruption agencies. Now the future of that agency, the Corruption Eradication Commission, known as the K.P.K., is under serious threat in a standoff with the police and President Joko Widodo.

Indian Prime Minister Modi Condemns Religious Violence — After holding back for too long, Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India delivered a firm statement Tuesday condemning religious violence. In what was widely seen as a response to recent attacks on Roman Catholic churches in and around New Delhi, he promised that his government "will not allow any religious group, belonging to the minority or the majority, to incite hatred against others, overtly or covertly."

Rand Paul Challenges Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz on Iran — Politicians who oppose President Obama can bluster all they want, grab headlines and curry favor with donors yet don't have to be responsible for their (too often) irresponsible critiques and prescriptions on foreign policy. So it was refreshing to hear Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky split with some of his fellow Republicans on Iran during a presidential forum on Saturday organized by Freedom Partners.

Syrian Refugees in Turkey Get More Rights — Forced from their homes by civil war, millions of Syrians have been displaced, either within Syria or to neighboring countries. There is no sign of an end to the four-year-old conflict, but there is some good news from Turkey, where 1.6 million Syrians have taken refuge.
