BLITZER'S BLOG: Outrage – U.S. congressman not allowed into Afghanistan

By CNN's Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) – It’s shocking that a country that receives billions of dollars in U.S. taxpayer money can tell an American congressman that he’s not welcome to visit that country.

And it’s also shocking that the highest U.S. officials – and even fellow Members of Congress – would go along with this outrage.

But that’s exactly what happened when Afghan President Hamid Karzai made clear to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that Republican Representative Dana Rohrabacher of California, a key member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, would not be allowed into Afghanistan.

BLITZER'S BLOG: Madeleine Albright speaks out on her hidden past

By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has written a very powerful new book on the Holocaust and her Jewish heritage. She didn’t know her parents were Jewish until she was 59 years old and about to become President Bill Clinton’s secretary of state.

“I had no idea that my family heritage was Jewish or that more than twenty of my relatives had died in the Holocaust,” she writes in “Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948."

BLITZER'S BLOG: Obama orders intelligence community to fight genocide

By CNN's Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) – President Obama took a very important step today when he ordered the U.S. intelligence community for the first time to routinely prepare national intelligence estimates “on the risk of mass atrocities and genocide.”

It’s a significant development. The intelligence community is always charged with preparing estimates on global national security issues: How close is Iran to building a nuclear bomb? Where are the most serious al Qaeda threats? What’s going on in North Korea? How secure is Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal? How vulnerable is the U.S. to cyberwarfare attack?
