Charles Krauthammer is one of my favorite writers: sharp, incisive thinking with an intellectual clarity that does not suffer foolishness – and is quite happy to point out who the fools are. I’ve long wished there were some way to get him into the US Senate in place of any of the many careerist mediocrities warming the seats there, these days.
Today, Charles tells us that this is his 25th anniversary as a columnist. In his honor, The Weekly Standard has put together a recommended list of articles he’s written for them. A “Best of Krauthammer,” as it were. Go and have a look; it will be well-worth your time.
My favorite? It’s hard to say, but one I turn to again and again when discussing the Jihadi War* is The Truth About Torture.
*(My name for the current conflict with radicalized Muslims. I think it’s more accurate and honest than “War on Terror.”)
