Why Robert Mueller Is Moving So Quickly
It’s hard to know what special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation is doing, but it’s clear that it’s going quickly. Experts on independent investigations, including some who have worked with them in the past, say that the former FBI director is moving on an aggressive timeline as he looks into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election. They say that could help keep it from getting bogged down or off track, like some past investigations. “We don’t want it to be spread out,” says Solomon Wisenberg, who was second-in-command in the Whitewater/Lewinsky investigation into Pres...

3 Ways the United Nations Is Helping the World (and 2 Ways It Can ’t)
Former UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold once remarked that the UN “was created not to lead mankind to heaven but to save humanity from hell.” Put another (less poetic) way, the UN is better at helping the world cope with crises than at preventing or ending them. This week’s UN General Assembly has confirmed as much; here, five global challenges the UN can, and can’t solve: 1. North Korea Let’s begin with something the UN can do very little to resolve: the North Korea standoff. There are three reasons for that. First, the “carrot” the UN wields—the lifting of economic sa...

President Trump ’s Iran Deal Decision
President Donald Trump is keeping even fellow world leaders in the dark on his plans for the Iran nuclear deal. “Prime Minister May [of the U.K.] asked him if he would share it with her and he said no,” U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters Wednesday. Trump is said to be exploring ways to not fully end the deal, but rather to try to toughen its conditions or shift the burden to Congress on whether to impose additional sanctions. TIME’s Philip Elliott explores the tortured state of the Democratic Party in this week’s cover story. Robert Mueller’s investigation is squeezing Paul M...

Donald Trump Stays Mum on Iran Nuclear Deal Decision
(NEW YORK) — President Donald Trump has determined how he wants to approach the Iran nuclear deal — which he has called the worst agreement ever negotiated by the United States — but has not told even his top national security advisers what his decision is. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Trump had not informed him or others in the administration about his decision and had refused to share it with British Prime Minister Theresa May when she asked him about it. Tillerson said he had been surprised when Trump publicly announced he had reached a decision. The secretary told reporters it ...

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Calls President Trump ’s U.N. Speech ‘Ignorant and Hateful’
(UNITED NATIONS) — Iran’s president warned the United States on Thursday that his country will “respond decisively” to any violation of the agreement that reins in Tehran’s nuclear program and called U.S. President Donald Trump’s “ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric” about Iran unfit to be heard at the United Nations. In remarks clearly directed at Trump’s 8-month-old administration, Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani told the U.N. General Assembly: “It will be a great pity if this agreement were to be destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics.” &ld...

How President Trump ’s Iran Criticism Affects North Korea
President Trump teased Wednesday that he has reached a conclusion on whether to re-certify the Iran nuclear accord, which he has been blasting since his time as a candidate. Trump faces an October deadline to affirm Iran’s compliance with the letter of the agreement, and he told reporters that he has made a decision about what to do. The stakes are high not just for the immediate region, but for the world. The nuclear agreement, which Trump and GOP critics have called a bad deal, allowed Iran to continue its destabilizing activities in the region, but the Obama-reached accord is also viewed as a model for a potential...

President Trump ’s U.N. Speech Is Exactly What Kim Jong Un Wanted to Hear
All year every year, streams of North Korean schoolchildren make the pilgrimage to Sinchon, a farming town south of Pyongyang. There, a palatial museum teaches them a fundamental lesson: America is the enemy. Each diorama-filled room of the Sinchon Museum of United States Atrocities is dedicated to the “jackals that infiltrated into all areas of life of the Korean people to suck blood out of the country.” From brainwashing missionaries to the “Hitler-esque” U.S. troops — who, displays claim, slaughtered 35,000 civilians nearby at the start of the 1950-53 Korean War — America is portrayed...

Hamas Takes a Step Away from Isolation, With a Long Way Left to Go
In the decade since the militant group Hamas waged civil war with its rival Fatah political party, the stateless Palestinians have been left without a unified voice on the world stage. Now, that might be about to change. Over the weekend Hamas took a step toward unity by agreeing to elections in Gaza and the West Bank, raising the prospect of reunification after ten years of squabbling and violence. Few think the political split is over for good, but Hamas’ move reflects a desire by the group to come in from the cold — and creates a chance to ease the plight of the 1.8 million Palestinians living under an Israe...
