I Had Dinner With the Afghan Ambassador. What He Said About the Differences Between Trump, Obama Is Stunning
It comes as no surprise that with each new American administration, a diplomatic chain reaction is felt the world over. The Bush years were marked by a heavy-handed, and sometimes ham-handed, forceful approach to American diplomacy. From NATO, to pan-Asia relationships, to the Middle East, Bush dealt from a position of cultural strength and a philosophy firmly rooted in Pax Americana. Was this approach successful? Historians certainly disagree.

As the long war rages on, a Ranger’s sacrifice is remembered | Houston Chronicle | May 27, 2018
Clovis Ray '99 was an outstanding athlete with an analytical mind. The former banker and San Antonio native rated his chances of dying in Afghanistan at 14 percent. “I figure we have about 70 patrols left. So I’m doing my best to mitigate risk over the next few months,” the Army platoon leader wrote his twin brother, Ed '99, in a Jan. 6, 2012, email. Clovis was killed by an IED two months after he wrote his brother. He was 34. Over Memorial Day, the memories of the young athlete, scholar and mentor still burn in the hearts of family, old friends and comrades, who question whether his sacrifice was in vain. Andrew Borene '98 was quoted.
