Bush and the first three years of Barack Obama’s presidency · Extensive coverage of the Obama Administration’s efforts to curb economic decline · Updates on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and on the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay · Coverage of the Arab Spring protests and U.S. involvement in the military intervention in Libya · Barack Obama’s health care reform legislation
