With almost no public discussion, President Obama has expanded the use of targeted killings. It's a cheap way to get rid of terrorist leaders, but mistakes and civilian casualties can be costly in more ways than one.

Also, a UN envoy claims that the Syrian Government has agreed to a temporary cease-fire, another Republican Senate candidate says pregnancy caused by rape is not justification for legal abortion. Will that impact the presidential campaign?
