Liz Cheney Risks Primary Over Jan. 6 and Trump Investigation

Liz Cheney Is Ready to Lose. But She’s Not Ready to Quit.

The Republican says her crusade to stop Donald J. Trump will continue — even if she loses her primary next week. Restoring a “very sick” G.O.P. will take years, she says, “if it can be healed.”

The Soldiers Came Home Sick. The Government Denied It Was Responsible.

U.S. service members and veterans have long insisted that the military’s garbage-disposal fires in war zones made them ill. Why were their claims stonewalled for so long?

Colin Powell and ‘Guernica’

He broke many barriers but was outplayed by masters of deceit.

Colin Powell Was My Thurgood Marshall

He was Black and Republican, a soldier and a diplomat — and his life holds a particular message for a nation whose democracy is increasingly in peril.

Donald Rumsfeld, Architect of War in Afghanistan, Is Laid to Rest

In a quirk of timing, the two-time former defense secretary’s burial at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday seemed to serve as a kind of coda to America’s 20-year lost war.
