Somalia: Pirates Just a Piece of the Puzzle
More than 3 million Somalis are dependent on external assistance; over 1 million are internally displaced; and another 500,000 and counting have sought refuge in neighboring countries.

We’ve got Aces in our Pocket
I’ve spent the entire season of Celebrity Apprentice trying my hardest to stay away from the silly, groan-inducing poker analogies running through my head.  But come on.  After last night’s episode, it simply can’t be avoided any longer.

President’s Corner: Obama Focuses on Iraqi Displacement
When President Obama met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki in Baghdad last week, he mentioned the U.S. interest in helping displaced Iraqis return home.  Currently, 20% of Iraq’s population is displaced—almost five million people—and it is increasingly clear that neither Iraq nor the region as a whole can be stable and secure as long as this large-scale displacement continues.
