- Opinion: Empowering Sunnis in Iraq is key
- How should the United States respond to Islamic State attacks in Paris? The response from the Republican presidential candidates has been to whip up hysteria over Syrian refugees and hostility toward all Muslims — with rhetoric so repulsive that it shames the country. Ben Carson likened refugees to “rabid dogs,” while Donald Trump said he would “absolutely” create a database to track Muslims inside the country.

- Opinion: Focus groups offer election read
- A persistent pattern in modern American politics is that presidential elections rarely turn out the way they look a year in advance. Such year-ahead poll leaders as Walter Mondale, George H.W. Bush and Hillary Clinton can attest to that.
