Terry Eastland is publisher of The Weekly Standard, which has been described by CNN as “the oracle of American politics.”  His recent articles in The Standard have addressed major issues facing President Bush during his first year in office, including the deployment of the military in Afghanistan, government support for faith-based social services, and racial profiling.

Mr. Eastland also writes a weekly column for the Dallas Morning News. Since September 11 his columns have treated virtually every aspect of the war on terrorism, including the religious roots of Osama bin Laden’s war against America and the use of military tribunals to try members of bin Laden’s terrorist network.
