    Tuesday Jan 20 | The Washington Post

    As regular readers know, the Supreme Court in King is set to decide whether Obamacare subsidies for policies procured from exchanges are only available when the exchange was "established by a state," as the plain text of the law says, or whether they are also available for state exchanges established by the federal government, as the Obama Administration, via Treasury Department regulations written by the IRS, has concluded.

    Thursday Jan 15 | The Washington Post

    In 1980, when El Salvador was erupting in guerrilla war and military violence, the Carter administration sent a little-known Foreign Service officer into the maelstrom as its new ambassador, hoping he could help the U.S.-backed government there find a reformist middle ground and prevent a full-scale revolution. Instead, Robert E. White became a controversial and outspoken critic of assassinations and massacres being carried out by American-trained military units and private right-wing death squads.

    Friday Jan 9 | The Washington Post

    Apparently, the real lesson we should be learning from the murder of "blasphemous" French cartoonists is that American pro-Israel activists are at least as repressive as Islamist terrorists . That's because the former have purportedly created a "taboo" against criticizing Israel-a purported taboo, I should note, that Greenwald himself and many other bloggers, along with every major American newspaper and left-of-center journal, violate regularly, and one that somehow doesn't stop professors hostile to Israel from dominating Middle East Studies Departments in universities across the United States, such that the actual taboo in such departments is to express sympathy for Israel.
