FROM Michael Neiberg
America Commemorates the Sacrifices of Its Men in Uniform Only a single American veteran survives from World War I, the conflict that ended 90 years ago today, after eight million soldiers had lost their lives in four years of fighting. On the aircraft carrier Intrepid, now a museum in New York Harbor, President Bush described how this holiday got the name Veterans' Day . Michael Neiberg is Professor of History and Co-director of the Center for the Study of War and Society at the University of Southern Mississippi
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
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.
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.
