McMaster's different take on Jan. 6

Lt. Gen. H.R McMaster was one of the most accomplished and competent of former President Donald Trump's cabinet picks. On Wednesday, McMaster gave me a tour d'horizon of his views, including those about the debacle in Afghanistan which he blames on the Obama, Trump and Biden administrations, a fiasco that he believes China is now trying to take advantage of.

Opinion: Muhammad Ali: the glory and the struggle

When Muhammad Ali died in 2016, he was accorded the equivalent of a state funeral, complete with a eulogy that featured President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton. During the last three decades of his life, from lighting the Olympic torch in Atlanta in 1996 until his death, Ali became a virtually sanctified figure, embodying the movements for civil and human rights that he came to symbolize in America and around the world.
