It seems like a good time to ask, since the CIA released a new video last week aimed at increasing workforce diversity. The over-the-top ad has been roundly mocked, with some commentators saying that ...Read more

PARIS — We pardon the interruption of your regularly scheduled programming of global conflict, economic woes and morbid daily pandemic tallies to bring you the sordid tale of a married couple complaining to a billionaire about their family, from which they have recently emancipated themselves and now accuse of racist undertones, backstabbing, ...Read more
PARIS — It took U.S. President Joe Biden barely a month in office to drop bombs in the Middle East. At this point, you’d think it was some kind of initiation ritual for anyone who steps into the role, regardless of party affiliation.
