And More Good News: Obama and Kerry Demand Amnesty for FARC Terrorists and Drug Lords

The Obama Administration is once again taking the lead in fighting terrorism and the worldwide narcotics trade [sarcasm alert]. In a column in today's Wall Street Journal, Mary Anastasia O'Grady describes how Secretary of State John Kerry met with the leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC) in Cuba, and how the State Department and the Obama Administration are  pressuring the Colombian government to accept a settlement with FARC under which FARC leaders would receive a full amnesty for prosecuting a civil war in which some 225,000 Colombians have died. Polls indicate that 90% of Colombians oppose amnesty for the FARC leadership, but that is of little concern to the Obama Administration, which is following the dictates of the Castro regime in Cuba, as part of the "reset" of Cuban-United States relations.

Executions Double under Iranian Moderate Regime

Remember the bad old days when Iran's President was the radical and publicly nasty Mahmoud Ahmenidijad?

Now of course Iran's President is the moderate, smiling Hassan Rhouhani:

The only problem is that, as reported today in a column in the Huffington Post by Dr. Majid Rafizadeh, President of the International American Council on the Middle East, based on United Nations data, in 2015, Iran executed nearly twice as many people than in 2010, under mean old Mr. Ahmenidijad, and roughly ten times as many people as in 2005.
