Three Cups of Tea or Three Cups of Deceit? Greg Mortenson made an international sensation out of his book about building schools in Pakistan out of gratitude for his treatment by tribesmen after he got lost on a climbing expedition. Now he's accused of lying and making personal use of millions of dollars donated to his charity. Three Cups of Tea has come in for withering criticism from author Jon Krakauer, whose attack is called Three Cups of Deceit . Now, Mortenson's Central Asia Institute is being scrutinized by the attorney general of Montana, where the charity is located. Alex Heard, Editorial Director of Outside magazine, picks up the story.
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?
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 longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
