Sex Crimes on Campus Are Going Public Harvard, Ohio State and 53 other colleges and universities — including Catholic University in Washington, DC — are under suspicion of mishandling complaints of sexual assault on campus. Today's release of an embarrassing list by the Department of Education follows Vice President Biden's warning that universities "face the facts." It demonstrates that a subject too tough for prior generations to talk about is now hot-button politics. Today's disclosures are part of an on-going movement. We trace its progress and see what might be next.
White House flip flops: NATO, Syria and China In less than 100 days, President Trump has contradicted himself on a host of foreign policy issues — Syria, NATO, China and Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

It's not clear what the US, its allies — or Vladimir Putin's Russia -- plan to do now.
