USA Today wrote that “President Obama is taking a dramatic step to show he opposes Republican efforts to slow or halt the admission of refugees over terrorist concerns: He has invited a Syrian refugee to attend his State of the Union Address.” Is the refugee going to be seated next to the empty “Gun Violence” chair?

Why Mali, Algeria Matter to America

Now that Algerian Special Forces have gone where President Obama feared to tread and ended the hostage standoff at a British Petroleum gas plant, the White House is no doubt resting easier.
