Terrorism: Global and Local The massacre of 17 people at Charlie Hebdo wasn't last Wednesday's only terror attack and it wasn't the deadliest either. The same day, a terrorist bomb killed 20 in the capital city of Yemen. The day before that, a 10-year-old girl blew up herself and 19 others in Baga, in northern Nigeria. That's where Bokko Haram is said to have killed as many as 2000 civilians just three days before. But there's been little news coverage of those horrific incidents. Nobody's apologizing for saturation news coverage of what happened in Paris, but are the western media missing the big picture?
Healthcare debate now shifts to the Senate Both parties are celebrating yesterday's House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. House Republicans are cheering because they were able to pass it. Democrats are happy because they think it's so bad. We look at the details… and the politics.
Russian probe gets jolt from Yates and Clapper Senate hearing Intelligence officials have long since concluded that Russia interfered in last year's US election. After yesterday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, what more do we know about the threat to future elections and how it's being handled by the Trump Administration?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
The free-flowing leaks in the Trump White House President Obama tried to clamp down on leakers, but the Trump Administration is besieged almost as never before. Are the "anonymous sources" partisans or worried professionals? Are they endangering the republic or performing a public service?
