Ten years ago: The Bush administration dismissed Iraq’s response to U.N. disarmament demands as inadequate.

One year ago: Addressing students at the University of Michigan, President Barack Obama issued a warning to the nation’s colleges and universities, threatening to strip their federal aid if they “jack up tuition” every year and to give the money instead to schools showing restraint and value.
