US General Testifies about Kunduz Hospital Bombing After the bombing of a hospital in Afghanistan, Doctors Without Borders has accused the US military of a war crime. Today in Washington, the commander of US and allied forces appeared before a Senate committee. Army General John F.

To be clear, the decision to provide aerial fires was a US decision made within the US chain of command. A hospital was mistakenly struck. We would never intentionally target a protected medical facility." Missy Ryan, Pentagon reporter for the Washington Post , has an update.

In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
