Is the FDA Capable of Policing the Food Supply? Three people were killed by contaminated spinach from California this year, and hundreds more were sickened before the FDA ordered a recall. Not only did the Food and Drug Administration know about problems with spinach , it was also aware of problems with contaminated peanut butter. In both cases—before high profile recalls. A report in today's Washington Post raises questions about the FDA and its ability to protect America's food supply. Mark McClellan, senior fellow at the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies, is a former commissioner of the FDA.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?

But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
