Assessing the Twin Disasters of September 2001


We have a tendency to forget that two historical events occurred in early September 2001. No one needs to be reminded of the jihadist attacks on Sept. 11 that killed nearly 3,000 people in a single morning.

Three weeks ago, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Defense Minister Benny Gantz convened the ambassadors from all the UN Security Council member nations in Jerusalem and told them that if Iran maintains its current pace of uranium enrichment, it will reach military nuclear break-out capacity in 70 days.

The Roots of America’s Defeat


Even before the suicide bombings outside the Kabul airport on Thursday evening, the U.S. media was acting with rare unanimity. For the first time in memory, U.S. media organs across the ideological and political spectrum have been united in the view that President Joe Biden fomented a strategic disaster for the U.S. and its allies with his incompetent leadership of…

Biden and Bennett are Permanently Wobbly


Two weeks after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, the UN Security Council passed a resolution imposing an embargo and maritime blockade on Iraqi shipping. Then-President George H.W. Bush was trying to figure out how to forcefully enforce it, and he discussed the issue with then-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
