    The State Department this week deemed two more of former Secretary Hillary Clintons emails to contain classified information, releasing redacted versions Friday, just days before Election Day. The messages appear to contain U.S. government policy memos toward Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates, preparing Mrs. Clinton for phone calls with leaders of those two nations. Information gleaned from foreign governments, as well as U.S. information about other governments, is supposed to be considered classified from the start. In these instances, like nearly every other of the more than 2,500 messages now deemed classified, there were no markings at the time...

    Clinton's secret arms dealing -- and how it led to disaster in Libya. Hillary Clinton led the charge in the Obama administration to go to war in Libya.

It is mostly Dubai due to its proximity to home. ... Looking at the figures released by the...

    The U.S. transferred 15 Guantanamo Bay detainees to the United Arab Emirates on Monday, the largest such movement yet in President Barack Obamas push to remove most prisoners from the offshore prison before he leaves office in January. The transfer of 12 Yemenis and three Afghans from the Cuba facility to the U.A.E. leaves 61 detainees, a significant drop from the 242 men imprisoned there in 2009 when Mr. Obama took office but short of the presidents longtime goal of closing the lockup. The Obama administration has faced persistent resistance from Congress and the Pentagon to closing the prison.

    The Obama administration on Monday transferred 15 detainees from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the United Arab Emirates, the largest release under the current president, the Pentagon said. The transfer comes as the president faces a looming deadline to keep the promise he made on his first day in office to close the military prison. The detainee population there dipped under 100 for the first time in years in January with the release of 10 Yemeni prisoners, and will shrink to 61 with the latest transfer, underscoring a late effort to move toward closure.

Without a ceiling on output, all OPEC members will continue to produce as they see fit, leaving the oil market to sort itself out. The result was largely anticipated, given the lack of agreement at several prior meetings. However, the meeting in Vienna was not without some news. OPEC members managed to agree on several small bore issues, which could be viewed as a modest success, especially after the apparent hostility on display...

In an article published in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyassa on Saturday, he argued that by sitting alongside Israel at...

    Progressives, who inexplicably still seek to coddle the worst humanity has to offer As weve argued before; when a country fails to solve its problems, those who are capable of leaving will do so. Theres no reason for a person of reasonable wealth to stay in a nation thats making his or her life miserable. Thats not rocket science; its just simple economics. So, when you look at a nation like France, you might assume that the ugly trifecta of high taxation, high cost of living, and radical Islam is incentivizing the departure of the financially stable. ...And youd be...
