"Free speech can be a powerful tool, and so Western liberals should rally around Charlie Hebdo. Let us hope that no government or publisher responds to today’s violence with self-censorship. If they do, the Islamists have won and all man’s progress since the Enlightenment is at peril."

"Obama’s turning from the Middle East war is not just a strategic mistake for America, but a stain on America.

By pivoting away from the Middle East, the United States is saying through its actions that anything goes."
