Presidential Politics and Defense, ISIS Hearings in the Week Ahead

The first order of business this week on the Hill is passing a stopgap spending bill, which is of course of interest to the defense and national security world. You could also throw a rock and hit any given Iran nuclear event in D.C., so we'll mostly focus on other things Monday: NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen.

Rise of the Islamic State -- A retrospective

In the 17th century, Sir Isaac Newton recorded the First Law of Motion in his foundational work, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, as translated: "When viewed in an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by an external force." Indeed, that law can be applied metaphorically to the objects of domestic and foreign policy, where actions also have consequences.

Mike Rogers: Obama is no FDR

Even for the biggest Republican cheerleaders of President Obama 's new strategy for combatting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria , apprehension persists about the commander in chief's follow through. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers is lobbying his Republican colleagues to support Obama's request for congressional authorization to arm and train Syrian rebels as part of his broader plan to defeat the Islamic State.

Video: Sure sounds like Boehner is ready to authorize Obama's plan...

Via RCP , training Syria's dubious and largely nonexistent "moderates" is easily the weakest part of Obama's ISIS strategy, and naturally it's also the one part that he wants Congress to vote on. If the Republican House blocks him, O gets to hammer them in the press as the "party of no" that's hurting the war effort against the jihadist monster.

The Faulty Timeline Behind This Benghazi Hoaxster's Harassment Myth

A Republican activist, attorney, and key player in the Benghazi hoax accused a former congressional staffer of harassing Benghazi eyewitnesses during congressional testimonies before going to work for Hillary Clinton -- but the staffer in question actually left Congress months before the interviews of those eyewitnesses took place. The false claim is just the latest in a long line of fictions from the Benghazi hoaxster, who has been discredited by Republicans members of the House Intelligence Committee and Benghazi CIA contractors alike.

Congressional reaction to Obama's speech

Congressional Republicans and Democrats reacted Wednesday night to President Barack Obama's expanded campaign of military airstrikes and support for partner forces to combat the Islamic State militant group: The president "has finally begun to make the case the nation has needed him to make for quite some time: that destroying this terrorist threat requires decisive action and must be the highest priority for the United States and other nations of the free world. A speech is not the same thing as a strategy, however.
