The Genocide in Rwanda: What Can Be Learned? There's still debate over who shot down the plane carrying the Hutu President of Rwanda in 1994, but there's no doubt what happened next: the systematic slaughter of up to a million rival Tutsis — men, women and children — in roughly 100 days. Instead of intervening, the UN Security Council withdrew all but 200 peacekeepers as the slaughter went on. Former President Bill Clinton has apologized for America's failure to act. This week has been one of commemoration , in a country that has reconstructed itself so completely it's even a good place to do business. Once again, Hutus and Tutsis live side by side — after almost two million so-called " trials of reconciliation " -- but some still insist that justice has not been served. What are the lessons for neighboring countries where ethnic hatred is the cause of widespread violence and for the international community?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
White House budget proposal slashes and burns President Trump's first budget request is considered dead on arrival in Congress — a familiar development in Capitol Hill. We hear what it reveals about the priorities of the new administration. What's likely to die… and what might survive?
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
