Jonah Goldberg: Saudis offer Obama a window of opportunity

Have you heard about the secret conspiracy between the Saudis and the White House? I haven't either, probably because there isn't one. But events are playing out exactly as one would expect if such a conspiracy existed.

Charles Krauthammer: World rallies, yet Obama says ‘Charlie who?’

Last Sunday, at the great Paris rally, the whole world was Charlie. By Tuesday, the veneer of solidarity was exposed as tissue thin.
