My latest -- Kerry tells GOP that even a Republican president won't roll back the (pending) Iran nuclear deal (provided it works) http://is.gd/hj3Ilj
Secretary of State John Kerry bluntly predicts that even a Republican president in 2017 wouldn’t nullify Barack Obama’s pending nuclear deal with Iran.

After a prostitution scandal and consternation over how a fence-jumper at the White House got deep into the presidential mansion before he was stopped, the Secret Service needs to make sweeping changes like building a taller fence, hiring many more agents, and stepping up their training, an independent commission says.

Foreign service officer group sounds the alarm over the growing politicization of the State Department.

http://news.yahoo.com/the-state-department-is-too-top-heavy-with-obama-political-picks--says-foreign-service-group-184616537.html
At a time when "The world is a mess," President Barack Obama has packed too many political appointees into top jobs at the State Department, and should replace retiring Deputy Secretary of State William Burns with a career diplomat, a foreign service group warns.

Fairly sure I've never crafted a finer headline.

The Islamic State militants got rich off smuggled oil, kidnappings for ransom, and extortion. Here is how the United States is responding.

My latest -- full interview with Gen. McChrystal on national service, Hillary Clinton, Bowe Bergdahl, the VA, and the abrupt end to his own service.

Retired General Stanley McChrystal, in an exclusive interview with Yahoo News, reflects in unusually personal terms on the controversy that cost him his command of the Afghan war and praises Hillary Clinton as “great to work with.”

At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama calls the Islamic State a "death cult" and offers a thinly veiled response to those who criticized him for skipping a demonstration in Paris that saw hundreds of thousands march in solidarity wtih Charlie Hebdo.

My latest -- looks like it's curtains for Obama's ambassadonors. At least the ones who don't get a vote in the "lame-duck" session.

VIce President Joe Biden has campaigned hard for struggling Democrats, who have kept their distance from President Barack Obama and his toxic approval ratings. Will it pay off?

President Barack Obama gives Ebola survivor Nina Pham a bear hug, part of his personal hands-on approach to persuade jittery Americans to trust elite doctors and scientists to keep them safe.

OK, so it's no "Desert Storm." But it's no "Operation Iraqi Liberation" (OIL) either. http://yhoo.it/1u5ytZL
President Obama's war on the so-called Islamic State finally has a name: It's Operation Inherent Resolve. It's not as dramatic as Desert Storm but not as bad as Operation Iraqi Liberation (OIL).
