I like to think of myself as a discriminating consumer of news. I love knowing and understanding the context of life. I believe the more accurate knowledge we as citizens have about our country and the world, the fewer mistakes we are likely to make during humanity's journey. It is for this purpose that I have joined NewsTrust.

The story is informative and relevant but hardly enterprising. It essentially summarizes what has become common knowledge in the past several days and adds the scheduled court appearance.

The source for this supposed memo is unclear and unsubstantiated. It does not appear that attempts were made to contact officials at DHS to follow up on the legitimacy of the memo.

The author discusses the balancing act world leaders must take when calling for more activity on the part of China. A thought-provoking piece that begs readers to consider China's role in current global affairs.

Is China following the path of "fools" by embarking on diplomatic avenues which lead only to short-term gain? China must think longer term to the world being created in which it will one day play such a major role.

This story informs the reader of potential pitfalls that parties often overlook as they gain power. Most often, the hubris surrounding power transfer comes to haunt parties and factions later on. Ms. Hennessey brings this salient issue to our attention.

Should newspapers be banned for "hosting" information which at some point was illegally obtained? It appears Mr. Liebermann is once again posturing for the sake of national security. Furthermore, it does not seem that Wikileaks actually violated Amazon's stated policies. Prosecutors have yet to identify a particular law that Wikileaks has broken.

This article is important because as the author asserted at the beginning, this idea of exceptionalism "was rarely heard outside...think tanks." The general public, often swayed by the rhetoric of talking heads, must be informed of the subject. Unfortunately, the 24 hour news entertainment services will undoubtedly fail in terms of a true education on the matter.

If one does not understand that other nations feel 'exceptional' just like the United States, then one does not understand the core principles of nationalism. One key reason why nationalist movements form is because a group of people felt 'exceptional' enough to desire their own state.

A good summary of the current state of global affairs. Though not entirely original, the article is very appropriate nonetheless. It certainly begs the question of "What is the downside to a multipolar world?"

Mr. Jenkins does a fine job in raising questions about the propriety of offering up sensitive state information to the public. For him, the current state of world affairs certainly warrants at least a partial airing of diplomatic 'laundry'. Well written and relevant considering the state of foreign policy the world finds itself in.
