Biden and Pope Francis meet as the Vatican welcomes visitors post-COVID

October 30, 2021  •  Fox News

Visitors have finally resumed flocking to Vatican City, at 108 acres, the world's smallest city-state. After the Vatican's 14-month pandemic induced closure, the longest in its modern history, Pope Francis has been receiving a bevy of prominent guests – Germany's President Walter Steinmeier and outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and this Friday, before heading to a pair of international summits, President Biden.

Biden and his generals tell two very different stories about Afghanistan. Which one's true?

September 29, 2021  •  Fox News

President Joe Biden and his top military officials seem to inhabit separate universes.

In testimony Tuesday before the Senator Armed Services Committee, Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley, and Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, contradicted several of their commander in chief's assertions about his controversial decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan.

In an interview on Aug. 19, four days after Kabul fell, Biden denied that his top generals had urged him to keep at least 2,500 U.S. troops in Afghanistan. "No. No one said that to me," he said, adding a politician's classic wiggle words, "that I can recall."

September 11, 2021  •  Fox News

There is a slow moving 9/11 developing here in Ukraine, a threat that if mishandled could produce death and destruction equal to or greater than what the United States endured, and the world witnessed in horrified shock and disbelief twenty years ago.

Protecting New York

September 10, 2021  •  City Journal

On the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, as New Yorkers commemorate those who died in the nation's most devastating terrorist attack, they can also take quiet pride in what hasn't happened since then, or, as President Bill Clinton once put it, the dog that didn't bark. Despite relentless attempts of varying levels of sophistication and competence, neither militant Islamists nor other hate-filled ideological or religious extremists have managed to stage a comparable attack on the city.
