The Genocide in Rwanda: What Can Be Learned? There's still debate over who shot down the plane carrying the Hutu President of Rwanda in 1994, but there's no doubt what happened next: the systematic slaughter of up to a million rival Tutsis — men, women and children — in roughly 100 days. Instead of intervening, the UN Security Council withdrew all but 200 peacekeepers as the slaughter went on. Former President Bill Clinton has apologized for America's failure to act. This week has been one of commemoration , in a country that has reconstructed itself so completely it's even a good place to do business. Once again, Hutus and Tutsis live side by side — after almost two million so-called " trials of reconciliation " -- but some still insist that justice has not been served. What are the lessons for neighboring countries where ethnic hatred is the cause of widespread violence and for the international community?
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
