Blindfolded Westerners paraded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards are hardly new. In 1979, the guards paraded for the cameras 52 blindfolded Americans seized at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and held hostage for 444 days. Now it's 15 British sailors, seized late last week in what the Iranian government claims were Iranian waters. Britain says they were in Iraqi waters, searching commercial ships for contraband, as British ships have done for some time now. Take your ... [full story]

In the three years since Army Cpl. Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire on a hill in Afghanistan, it has become achingly apparent that his story was never as heroic as it seemed: It was better. The original story was pretty good: NFL player, stunned by Sept. 11, walks away from a $3.6 million contract offer to enlist with his brother in the Army, and not just the Army, but the elite 75th Ranger ...

U.S. Postal Service officials recently proposed a "forever" stamp, a stamp that never loses its mailing value, regardless of future increases in the price of postage. This might well be the best mailing innovation since the Pony Express. How many times have you snagged a book of first-class stamps, only to get licked with a postage hike? In order to use your suddenly worthless booklet of "Migratory Birds" for anything other than wallpaper, you must ... [full story]

At 8 p.m. Iraqi time four years ago Tuesday, U.S. combat sappers in tanks and bulldozers gashed holes in a sandy berm on Kuwait's northern border and began the invasion of Iraq. The air war had begun about 15 hours earlier with a "decapitation strike" aimed at Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. The strike failed; Saddam hadn't been where U.S. informants said he'd be. It wouldn't be the last intelligence failure of this war. Within a ... [full story]

In frame3 he says: 'Requiring us to tell the truth makes my tummy hurt.' In frame 4 he screams: 'My whole life is a big pile of steaming lies! Why start being honest now?!!' In frame 5 he says: 'I'm the ... [full story]

For years, the U.S. government has done strikingly little clear thinking about organ donation and how to encourage it. Transplant surgery has become routine, but few healthy organs are available. Yet this deadly supply problem is considered a taboo public policy issue, primarily because of fears that giving incentives to people to donate organs will spawn a ghoulish black market and prompt the destitute to risk their health to pay the rent. Fortunately, we're finally ... [full story]

As homeowners by the millions fall behind on their subprime mortgages, cries for a government bailout are starting to echo through Washington. That would be a very bad idea. It would reward irresponsible lenders and leave the taxpayers holding the bag. Rescuing the irresponsible only leads to more reckless lending. But there are things that government should do to ease the crisis and prevent a repeat of the current mess. For starters, Congress and the ... [full story]
