Obama’s Isis quandary: clock ticks on viable strategy as criticism intensifies

Saul Loeb,AFP,Getty Images

When Air Force One next touches down on US soil, at an Alaskan refuelling stop on Sunday, Barack Obama will have completed a week-long circumnavigation of a world that can rarely have felt further from his control. The president flew east from a shell-shocked G20 summit in Turkey to meetings with Asia-Pacific leaders that had been designed to reassure them about China. His trip was overshadowed by bloodshed in Paris and Mali, chaos in the Middle East and political warfare back in Washington. Linking it all, Obama’s strategy for defeating Islamic State is under question as never before. Not just from Republican critics whose doubts…

The Guardian

Derecka Purnell was one of the first Harvard law students to see the black tape placed over about six portraits of Harvard Law School’s tenured black facultyWednesday morning. “I was surprised to see it …” Purnell said, before reconsidering: “Actually, I wasn’t surprised at all.” The incident comes at a moment when, nationwide, college students are demanding action against the entrenched white supremacy and racism they say still pervades campus life. Even at elite liberal universities such as Harvard – places where some might believe that racist symbols and behavior are a relic of the past – these discussions and protests persist. And…

By Devin Henry – 11/14/15 01:24 PM EST Diplomats have agreed on a timeline for a political transition in Syria, though major sticking points remain on the right way to draw down the four-year-old conflict. At a meeting in Vienna on Saturday, Secretary of State John Kerry said leaders had agreed to set a Jan. 1 date for the beginning of talks between Syrian President Bashar Assad and opposition groups fighting against him, the Associated Press reports. Within six months, those negotiators would be required to decide on a “credible, inclusive and nonsectarian” transitional government for the country. That government…
