We need a strategy to counter corruption, Mr. President

‘Islamic State’ is a problem; Assad is a bigger problem

Syria’s president has tried harder than ever to recommend himself as a partner in the fight against “Islamic State.” However, it appears that Bashar al-Assad is a major part of the problem – and not part of the solution.
