New Human Remains Found at Ground Zero New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg says city crews will go back to Ground Zero in search of human remains from September 11. On Wednesday, utility workers found remains as large as arm and leg bones near a site where victims' families meet yearly to read the names of their loved ones. Some 2749 people died in the attack on the World Trade Center and the search for remains went on for 9 months. Many have seen no evidence that their relatives died, in part because DNA was so damaged by heat, humidity and time. This week's discovery has created outrage.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences. On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
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?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
