The U.S. needs Russia. This may sound peculiar coming from a person who spent 25 years at the NSA, almost half of those fighting communism. But our approach to Russia since the end of the Cold War has been unimaginative and aggressive. Politicians in Washington put on their Cold-War glasses any time Russia makes noise. It's time to archive those in the Smithsonian. Many notable academics agree that our policies toward Russia are flawed, but my conclusion - that we need Russia - is derived from the kind of work we mastered at NSA: carefully listening to and analyzing communications, in this case what Russians have said openly on social networks and in private conversations with me during a recent trip to Russia.

The intertwined history of the Jewish Reches family of Mount Washington and Greenspring and the Roman Catholic Staszczak-Wrobel family of Poland is extraordinary, and extraordinarily inspiring. When family members recount it at schools, churches, synagogues - or to passengers on a sightseeing bus - it can bring tears to strangers' eyes. That history began during World War II as Germany occupied Poland and, in 1942, the Nazis resolved to make the small town of Mosciska Judenfrei - free of Jews.

Dan and Louise Runion of Clarksville may be humble antiques and art dealers working out of a bedroom-size cubicle in Frederick, but they're big in Poland. Lately they've been featured in Polish newspapers, television and radio, and were welcomed by the Polish ambassador in Washington for a champagne toast as thanks for donating six lithographs by an artist who became prominent in Europe between the world wars. Chalk it up to charity, accident and a discerning eye for art. "This was one of those remarkable finds," said Louise Runion.

Hungry and jobless Poles can take some satisfaction from the role of the United States in easing their debt. In the transition from communism to a free market, economic conditions were expected to get worse before they got better, and so they have. The debt forgiveness from the United States -- a debtor government itself that can ill afford such generosity -- rewards the good faith of the Polish regime in making painful but necessary reforms.According to the State Department, the U.S. had been prepared to see all of Poland's $33 billion in government-to-government debt written off. But the United States was unable to persuade a reluctant Paris Club of creditor nations to write off 50 percent, collectively.

Dr. Joseph Taler, a retired Glen Burnie family physician who survived the Holocaust in Poland by not wearing his Star of David armband, taking a Christian surname, and hiding in a village, died Sunday of heart failure at his Annapolis home. He was 89. The only child of an attorney and a pharmacist, Dr. Taler was born and raised in Rozwadow, Poland, where he attended high school. Dr. Taler's father, Abraham Taler, who had been a prominent member of the Polish infantry during the 1919-1920 Polish-Bolshevik conflict, had been recalled to active duty in 1939, was later arrested by the Soviets and was on a train bound for Russia when he escaped during a stop.

I am starting to feel sorry for Mitt Romney. On an international tour to three countries, he made news in two of them by dissing the London Olympics and infuriating the Palestinians. The poor guy -- for months, people have complained that he never says what he really believes. Now, he's in trouble for too boldly saying what he actually thinks. First, during an interview with NBC News anchorman Brian Williams, Mr. Romney had this to say about prospects of success for the London games: "It's hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting: the stories about the private security firm not having enough people, supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that obviously is not something which is encouraging.

The United States has not won a war since 1945. We have been involved in numerous conflicts and our military has performed magnificently — considering the political interference and (mis)direction endured.  This interference has caused us to lose (as in the case of Vietnam) or come to a draw (as in the case of Korea) or had victories given away (as we are now witnessing in Iraq). We are following the same formula of failure in Afghanistan. Never in the past 66 years have we come to the political point where we could claim the capitulation of an enemy.  The result of this has been an erosion of international respect that has negatively affected our ability to use international coalitions or the threat of military action as effective suasion.

100 Years Ago Rolling out the welcome mat In the Times social column: "Mr. Henry J. Bender has returned to his home on Rolling Road after visiting friends in New York City. Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Davis have returned to their home on Rolling Road after spending several days with friends in Baltimore. " Mr. Bender and the Davises lived on Rolling Road before its hills, vales and curves were straightened out. The road lived up to its name then and traveling it you could easily imagine those hogsheads of tobacco bumping and rolling down it toward the deep, wide, 18th-century Patapsco River where they were loaded onto ships.

The Sparks resident was 77. The son of a factory worker and a housekeeper, Mr. Budd was born in Warsaw, Poland. After his father died in a concentration camp, Mr. Budd and his mother and brother left Poland and immigrated to New York, landing at Ellis Island.

Poland's President Lech Walesa, the shipyard electrician who played an epic role in forcing the collapse of European communism, is now engaged in a brutal struggle to remain in power.His adversaries are many: apparatchiks from the old order who won control of the government last year as "Social Democrats" eager to exploit economic unrest; former allies in the Solidarity movement alienated by his arbitrary ways, and managers of big enterprises who seem to flourish corruptly under communism or capitalism.

Five days. That's all it took after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, for Danuta Hinc to realize that she needed to write a book about how such a thing could happen. “I realized that I needed to know what leads people to make such extreme choices,” says Hinc, who teaches professional writing at the University of Maryland College Park. “And the next question I asked was: Am I capable of killing someone?” On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Hinc stood in the living room of her Ellicott City townhouse, riveted to the TV screen, unable to sit down, unable to comprehend what she was witnessing.
