Obama is getting 'trolled' by the Islamic State

U.S. President Barack Obama's reaction to the videos of two American freelance journalists getting beheaded by Islamist militants gives me the uncomfortable feeling that the American people are getting punk'd - again. The same thing happened 13 years ago last week, when a dozen and a half Muslim fundamentalists attacked our financial and political capitals using our own planes.

The Absurd Lexicon of the Middle East Expert

Long before the latest convulsions in the Middle East, but certainly encouraged by them, that unendangered species of think tank fellow or academic known simply as the "Middle East Expert" perfected a new lexicon for the English language. Everything that has occurred in a troubled region, from the auto-immolation of a Tunisian street vendor to the barrel bombing of Aleppo, has been made intelligible, if not inevitable, by this carefully constructed lexicon of the elite opinion-makers and policy-formulators of our day.

Step Back in Time: Four Florida Forts

Historical Florida forts provide opportunities to climb over, under and through tunnels, gates, walkways and walls while peering through turrets with sweeping panoramic harbor and beach vistas. Experiencing history brings our past to life - especially for kids and the "curious child" in all of us.

Dangers of a perpetual war

It is official: U.S. President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barack Obama is at war again. After toppling Libyan ruler Moammar Gadhafi with aerial bombardment, staging bombing campaigns in Somalia and Yemen, and recently initiating airstrikes in northern Iraq, Obama has declared war on the Islamic State, a decision that will involve infringing the sovereignty of another state, Syria, where this barbaric group is largely based.

Voices: Different migrants treated differently

I spent some time recently at a symposium commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Cuban rafter crisis that brought 35,000 desperate migrants to America's shores. Held at my alma mater, Florida International University, the symposium featured stirring pictures of Cubans who boarded boats, inner tubes and anything else that could float to cross the shark-infested waters between Cuba and Florida in 1994.

opinion | Alan M. DershowitzDetentions of war

A major reason why Guantanamo remains open is that it contains several detainees - the precise number is unknown - who, if released, would almost certainly return to a life of terrorism . Indeed, some have, and many in detention have overtly stated their malignant intentions.

No court martial for nurse who refused to give forced-feeding at Guantanamo

A Navy commander has chosen not to court-martial a nurse who refused to conduct forced-feedings of hunger strikers this summer and has instead asked a board to determine whether the nurse should be allowed to stay in the U.S. Navy. The nurse, a Navy lieutenant whose name has never been made public, reportedly turned conscientious objector before the Fourth of July after handling months of nasogastric feedings of prisoners shackled to a restraint chair.

Tiny Qatar plays outsize role in US war strategy

Just miles from where former Guantanamo Bay terror suspects have resettled, American warplanes take off from Qatar's al-Udeid air base in the global war on extremism. The contrast in images illustrates why tiny but rich Qatar is an intriguing player in what President Barack Obama says will be a long battle to stop and eventually destroy the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
