Turkey jails more journalists than any other nation. Those in detention are all terrorists, Erdogan says.

Turkey has arrested about 150 journalists since last year's failed military coup against the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The country is now the world's leading jailer of journalists. But as trials begin, Erdogan is insisting that none of these editors and reporters are being tried for their professional work. They're all terrorists, he says.

My love/hate relationship with Barack Obama

I campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. I will never forget the tears that streamed down my face when, after a long day of "Get Out The Vote" door-knocking in Chicagoland’s American Muslim neighborhoods, I watched him walk out on stage in Grant Park on the television screen in my family’s living room. A person with a name like mine was elected President of the United States.
