The Anti-War/Anti-Semitic Defense Chief
By Joseph Klein
President Obama has nominated former Senator and Vietnam War veteran Chuck Hagel to replace Leon Panetta as Secretary of Defense, and John Brennan to serve as director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Wisconsin’s School Choice Programs Big Hit with Students, Parents
By Kyle Olson
While parent and student satisfaction are the most important measuring sticks, researchers have also given a big thumbs up to Milwaukee’s school choice program. A five-year study conducted by the University of Arkansas found that 94 percent of students who used the voucher program during all four years of high school graduated on time compared with 75 percent of students who remained in Milwaukee Public Schools.
