1969 “Of all the devices that man has created to propel himself from one place to another on Earth, the Boeing 747 jetliner must rank as the most spectacular,” Newsweek wrote of the larger-than-life airplane. “The aviation industry sees in the 747 the coming of a second jet age, a new millennium.” The wide-body carries “nearly 500 passengers on two luxurious levels,” stretches “three-fourths of a football field” long and “has a tail as tall as a six-story building.” After soaring for nearly five decades, the 747 may be in its final descent as demand shifts to smaller, more fuel-efficient commercial aircraft. 1985 “The talk is of trouble in paradise,” Newsweek wrote of the “fairytale marriage” turned “soap opera” of the Prince and Princess of Wales. While the magazine concluded the worst of…

does jim mattis have a duty to criticize donald trump?

AS FOUR-STAR GENERAL AND FORMER SECRETARY of Defense Jim Mattis embarks on a book tour, his vow to refrain from criticizing President Donald Trump raises important ethical questions. Should a retired general or admiral ever criticize a sitting president? If so, under what circumstances? Is there a duty to warn the American people if their president is a clear and present danger to national security? In addressing these questions, it is instructive to consider the standard set by George Marshall, the only other former flag officer who also served as secretary of defense. Before and after Marshall stepped down as President Harry Truman’s defense secretary in 1951, he consistently and flatly refused several lucrative offers from publishers to write his memoirs or to otherwise speak out about the presidents, politicians and…

playing with fire

@JonathanBroder1 ON A BALMY SEPTEMBER 28, Sen. Lindsey Graham went golfing with President Donald Trump at the president’s private golf club in Sterling, Virginia, about 30 miles outside Washington D.C. As they played the tree-studded course on the banks of the Potomac River, Graham assured Trump that Senate Republicans had his back on the formal impeachment inquiry underway in the House. But Graham’s principal message that day focused on Iran—namely the need to punish the Islamic Republic militarily for what Trump and many others believe was its drone-and-cruise-missile attack on two major Saudi Arabian oil facilities two weeks earlier. “Make Iran pay a price,” Graham, appearing the next day on CBS’s Face the Nation, recalled urging Trump. The South Carolina Republican said he also told the president that last-minute orders in June to…

AS HOUSE DEMOCRATS PONDER THE politics of impeaching Donald J. Trump, they are weighing the possible outcomes. An impeachment inquiry could weaken the president before next year’s election and give the White House back to the Democrats, or it could backfire, the way the GOP’s effort to oust Bill Clinton did in 1998. But there’s a third option: impeachment could succeed. As a senior staffer on the House Judiciary Committee framed the dilemma, “What if we’re left with President Pence?” That scenario has seemed far-fetched—until now. At the moment there doesn’t seem to be enough GOP senators who would vote to convict Trump if the Democratic-controlled House passes articles of impeachment against him. But the president hasn’t been able to quash “Ukraine-gate,” the scandal that erupted after a U.S. intelligence whistleblower…
