The Killing of Trayvon Martin Was Vastly Different from the Killing of Al-Awlaki’s Son. Obviously.

My Monday column: The most inhumane and tragic aspect of any war, noble or nefarious, is the reality of civilian casualties. As long as there’s been warfare, noncombatants have been caught in the crossfire, or even intentionally killed en masse … Continue reading
