Diplomacy: As the Castros rejoice at President Obama's move to normalize ties, extend trade credits, take their country off the terror list and free its deadly spies, the queasy question remains: What did the U.S. get in return
Cyberwar: Like a bomb detonating in slow motion, the scale and destructiveness of the Sony hack has only now become fully apparent. Telling Americans to go to the movies doesn't cut it as a government response.
Agenda: Lost in the swirl over the president's move to undo 55 years of U.S. policy in Cuba is his suggestion that America colonized Cuba and gave rise to its communist "liberators." Where does he get such pap? From his church.
War On Terror: The Taliban outdoes even the Islamic State in its latest atrocity extravaganza. In deploring the attack, the president conveniently omits mention of the group he led the U.S. in surrender to.
Government Waste: The good news is the National Institutes of Health pulled the plug on a national children's health study because it was fatally flawed. The bad news is they wasted 10 years and $1.3 billion before they admitted it.
Israel: A U.N. Security Council resolution setting a deadline for Israeli retreat from land sought for a Palestinian state might as well declare the Jewish state dead. The U.S., disgracefully, is taking it seriously.
Inequality: President Obama's subpar economic recovery has been bad for almost everyone, but it's been especially brutal to blacks and Hispanics, who've seen their wealth decline since he took office.
