When Ksenia Coffman started editing Wikipedia, she was like a tourist in Buenos Aires in the 1950s. She came to learn the tango, admire the architecture, sip mat. She didn't know there was a Nazi problem. read more

On Aug. 29, President Joe Biden paid his respects to U.S. service members who were killed in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport. The president and first lady Jill Biden bowed and placed their hands over their hearts as 11 caskets were presented at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. But on social media, some doubted Biden's sincerity. One popular post features two photos: one of Biden and one of now-former President Donald Trump. The picture shows Biden appearing to check his watch, Trump salutes as men in fatigues carry a casket draped in the American flag. read more


Several Fox News hosts on Wednesday praised a Florida restaurant owner's decision to ban supporters of President Joe Biden from eating at her establishment, saying it's "understandable" and that it could "lead to a lot more business for her." With conservative anger towards the Biden administration reaching a fever pitch following the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the owner of Debary Diner posted a sign outside her business telling Biden voters not to enter following the Kabul terror attack. "If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere," reads the sign from owner Angie Ugarte. "God bless America and God bless our soldiers."

The initial images of the Afghanistan withdrawal were hard to take. There were the videos of desperate people clinging to U.S. planes as they took off, and the even worse footage of someone falling from an aircraft after takeoff. It was an eerie bookend to the era that began with the 9/11 attacks and The Falling Man, a kind of corollary to the fact that the Taliban would control the country at the beginning and the end of the Afghanistan conflict. Both left you with the sensation that, despite the many sacrifices of American soldiers, and after all the blood spilled and the trillions spent, it had mostly been in vain.
