I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Congress, President clash over 9/11 bill

A current bipartisan bill that has been introduced in both the House and Senate will allow 9/11 victims to sue the Saudi government for any involvement in the attacks. Though Congressional leaders Ryan and McConnell have expressed their concern over the bill, they will cautiously continue to look at the bill and make sure it does as little harm to United States-Saudi relations before passing it. The Saudi Arabian government strongly opposes the bill, and it has threatened to sell off billions of dollars in U.S. assets if the bill passes. President Obama, with diplomatic interests in mind, vows to veto the bill if it makes it through both houses.
