The Pentagon Will Look Into the Iraq Chemical Weapon Scandal, After All

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — After Times reporter C.J. Chivers revealed last week that American and American-trained Iraqi troops found thousands of abandoned and highly dangerous chemical weapons left over from the rule of Saddam Hussein, the Pentagon said it did not plan to examine the facts uncovered. Apparently that bad decision was not final.

A Nobel Peace Prize for Malala Yousafzai

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — When Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager known for advocating girls' education, won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, she quickly made yet another gutsy gesture. She invited the prime ministers of Pakistan and India to attend the December awards ceremony. Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan and Narendra Modi of India should immediately accept.

Joe Biden Apologizes for Telling the Truth

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — It used to be that lying got politicians into trouble. For Vice President Joe Biden, it's truth-telling that causes a stir. The latest furor started after he spoke at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government last Thursday.

Tunisia: Where the Arab Spring Still Shows Promise

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — In the chaos of the Middle East, there is still one place that's not a disaster zone. It is Tunisia, where the Arab Spring was born and where the dream of co-existence between Islam and democracy continues to be championed - and put into practice - by people like Sheihk Rachid Gannouchi, the founder of Ennadha, the country's main Islamist Party.

Bravo, Prime Minister Cameron

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — One democratic leader has decided to ask his country's legislature to vote before going to war. Pity that it isn't President Obama. Prime Minister David Cameron on Thursday recalled Parliament, which was in recess (just as Congress is).

Iran and the ‘Coalition of Repenters’

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — No one has presented a more articulate case for Iran to Western audiences than the foreign minister, Javad Zarif. He and President Hassan Rouhani proved that last year when they attended their first United Nations General Assembly after Mr. Rouhani's election.

Russia Scolds the U.S. Over Syria

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Vladimir Putin's latest foray into the international debate over Syria took chutzpah. His foreign ministry warned that if President Obama proceeds with a plan for air strikes in Syria against ISIS, it would violate international law. "This step, in the absence of a UN Security Council decision, would be an act of aggression," ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said, according to Interfax news agency.

Dick Cheney (and Other Republicans) Throw Stones at Obama From Glass House

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Since he left the vice presidency six years ago, Dick Cheney has made a second career of criticizing President Obama, usually for his record on terrorism. Mr. Cheney was at it again on Tuesday, using a meeting with House Republicans to skewer Mr. Obama and promote his only remedy for foreign policy problems: War.

Focusing America’s Attention on Asia

nytimes.com — Sydney, AUSTRALIA - Raise the subject of President Obama's Asia policy here and an American can expect to be bombarded with questions. With the slowdown in Pentagon spending, and dysfunction in Congress, will the United States really put 60 percent of its defense assets in the Asia-Pacific region by 2020, as promised?

What Iranians Say Now About ‘the Great Satan’

nytimes.com — TEHRAN - The old American Embassy building in the heart of this capital city was recently opened to tours for Westerners. It is now a museum run by the Revolutionary Guard and its Basiji paramilitary allies, where they keep alive a paranoid narrative of American malice and deceit by showcasing dust-encrusted spy equipment and a modern mural of alleged American perfidies.
