Nearly a month on, it is time to take a step back from the breathlessly hysterical media reports and hand-wringing over the situation in Iraq and offer some alternative opinions and analysis. Here is an opinion no one would expect to hear on a site featuring conservative commentary: the Obama administration is right. As still-more U.S. troops return to the country, the deteriorated security situation in Iraq has reignited debate about the U.S. mission in Iraq, whether the war is truly over, whether it was worth it (most agree it wasn’t), whether we should have gone in the first...Read More

Tweet After watching President Obama’s appearance on Jimmy Fallon the other night, I have decided that the president is too cool. And judging from the response I’ve seen across the Twitterverse and Facebook, so have many naïve and poorly informed members of my generation.
