Why were so many Democrats smiling during President Bush's State of the Union speech? It wasn't because they agreed with him on all his domestic priorities.

Oliver North | February 01, 2002

Suzanne Fields | January 31, 2002

Alas, political correctness is not satire. And that's not Gulliver, making fun of the Laputans' use of language and learning. The educationists are speaking for themselves.

Debra J. Saunders | January 31, 2002

It is more than ironic that while Amnesty International and other human-rights organizations were bashing American treatment of Afghanistan detainees, a small group of AL Qaeda soldiers was holed up in a Kandahar hospital, threatening to kill themselves or any nonmedical personnel who entered their space.
