I didn't think Dick Cheney was a good choice to represent the U. Can anyone find another time he appeared at an official event so dressed down? I bet not.
Apparently, the fellow sitting behind him in the Russian-style bear hat agreed. Of course, if he were to be in Europe, he would have been expected to go to Davos for the World Economic Forum. This, however, would have required some persuasive diplomatic skills—something Bush has not demonstrated with regard to many European leaders.
Since World War II, American power and leadership have been an unmatched force for the defense of freedom around the globe. For seventy years, presidents both Republican and Democratic have shared a dedication to maintaining American power and leadership. Now the former vice president and his daughter, former deputy assistant secretary of state Liz Cheney, team up to explain how President Obama has drastically broken with the bipartisan foreign policy consensus that enabled America to prevail in World War II, to win the Cold War, and to triumph in the first decade of the War on Terror.

Many of those who survived the Nazi death camps -- and others who helped liberate them -- have worked hard for many decades to keep alive the memory of everyone who suffered and perished there. Nesse Godin, a Holocaust survivor from Lithuania, is a frequent guest speaker at the U. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.
The ceremony here was held close to the railway sidings where tens of thousands of Jews, Gypsies, Slavs and homosexuals had been transported to their deaths in one of the most notorious of the Nazi concentration camps. The sides of the railways tracks were lined Thursday by big, bright candles. The survivors, many in their 80s, sat patiently Thursday in the open air despite the freezing temperatures and a biting snow storm that persisted during the afternoon ceremonies.
The three men were dressed almost identically, in brown boots, gray slacks, heavy black coats, and blue and white striped hats that resembled the prison uniforms they'd worn as children.
