I don't get it. The U.S. Supports regime change in Syria and that fed the sectarian in-fight between Shi'a and Sunni. Now we are compounding the issue by taking in refugees and budding terrorists from Syria. #Syria #Katie #NowIGetIt

If Rand Paul were commander in chief, his strategy for fighting Islamic militants in the Middle East would start with the Kurds. “I would arm the Kurds directly,” the Republican senator and potential presidential candidate told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric.

Benghazi is a dead issue, obviously this guy does not keep up with what his own party led investigation came up with. The conservative party has a problem accepting the facts when it does not favor them. Paul  tries to vie with cruz for stardom, neither of which shine very bright.

No they've arrested him, but if the boy didn't lose his mom he should have been arrested too. The mom and daughter got away from the road rage without incident. Until they went looking for him with a loaded weapon. This is all the fault of the mom and her son.

Six French citizens have had their passports confiscated and 40 more will be banned from leaving the country as Europe cracks down on would-be jihadists planning to travel to Syria and Iraq. This is the first time France has resorted to the measure since its introduction as part of a raft of new counter-terrorism laws in November. "If French people go commit attacks in Iraq or in Syria, on their return they will present an even greater danger of ...

On Wednesday, President Obama will host a summit on "Countering Violent Extremism" - bringing together police, religious leaders and others to confront extremism in American neighborhoods. What questions do you have about our fight against extremism? Post them below.

Today at 4:15 pm EST, join me on +Yahoo News for a discussion following President Obama's remarks at the White House Summit: Countering Violent Extremism. But before that, check out my interview with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about what he calls the 'new phase' in the global war on terror.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson tells Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric that the United States has entered a new phase in the global war on terror. The Secretary admits that tracking Americans traveling abroad to join the Islamic State, along with that group's growing use of social media has proven a difficult challenge.
