Saudis vs. Canada (it's MBS domestic politics), Paul Manafort's defense strategy, Twitter for free speech, Russia faces new sanctions

Here's the real reason Saudi Arabia is freaking out at Canada. It's about Saudi domestic politics far more than it is foreign policy.

Paul Manafort's defense team has a dual track strategy for acquittal. It's about degrading the credibility of Rick Gates and blurring the waters of financial crime legalese.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is right to push back against the social media ban on Alex Jones. Mr. Jones is a freakish oddball but free speech matters at the margin here.

Russia was asking for the new sanctions imposed on it in relation to the Skripal attack. They reflect Putin's culpability and deter chemical weapons proliferation.
