As Libya descends into a failed state — marked most recently by the beheadings of 21 Coptic Christians by jihadis — Democrats are beginning to question Hillary Rodham Clinton’s rush to war in the country, and one in particular, former Sen. Jim Webb, may make national security the focal point of a presidential campaign. More than three years after Mrs. Clinton pushed for U.S. airstrikes to end Moammar Gadhafi’s four-decade-long autocracy, the country has been divided between two rival governments, each with its own military, and various tribal militias all competing for power. As happened with Afghanistan in the 1990s,

(Video) Washington (CNN)Tempers flared on the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday night when the No. 2 House Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer, called House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy a "coward." McCarthy had just updated members on plans for a vote on a three-week funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, which will run out of money at midnight on Friday. Hoyer, who has been pressing for a clean full funding measure through the rest of the fiscal year, responded by saying, "You coward." The aside could be heard on the microphone at his podium.

The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed. Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation. “There is potential criminal

Texas officials warn of immigrants

A top Texas law enforcement agency says border security organizations have apprehended several members of known Islamist terrorist organizations crossing the southern border in recent years, and while a surge of officers to the border has slowed the flow of drugs and undocumented immigrants, it’s costing the state tens of millions of dollars. In a report to Texas elected officials, the state Department of Public Safety says border security agencies have arrested several Somali immigrants crossing the southern border who are known members of al-Shabab, the terrorist group that launched a deadly attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi,

The fatal flaw in the Iran deal

A sunset clause? The news from the nuclear talks with Iran was already troubling. Iran was being granted the “right to enrich.” It would be allowed to retain and spin thousands of centrifuges. It could continue construction of the Arak plutonium reactor. Yet so thoroughly was Iran stonewalling International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors that just last Thursday the IAEA reported its concern “about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed .?.?. development of a nuclear payload for a missile.” Bad enough. Then it got worse: News leaked Monday of the elements of a “sunset clause.” President Obama had accepted the

In a Q&A session Thursday, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus pointed out a potential conflict raised by the Clinton Foundation´s acceptance of millions in donations from foreign governments. "I don´t know how Hillary Clinton´s going to take a 3 a.m. [call] from a leader in Yemen or Algeria or Saudi Arabia when she was willing to have her foundation take potentially millions of dollars from those governments," said Priebus, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference. Priebus raises a valid point. It will be difficult for Clinton to tell the American people that she will be tough on terrorism

The latest tales of State Department ethics violations, foreign money, and special access would be surprising if they were about anyone but Hillary Clinton. Throughout her political career Clinton has always blended cash and policy. She’s not merely corporatist by disposition, like, say Tim Geithner or Lindsey Graham. She’s not simply sloppy on ethics, like Bob McDonnell or John Kitzhaber. Hillary is blatantly transactional in her fundraising and policymaking. And she wants to be president. Here’s the background on the latest Clinton story: During her tenure as Secretary of State, Clinton openly had an unsavory relationship with foreign money. Her

WASHINGTON— Investigators said Thursday they have recovered 32,000 emails related to a former IRS official at the heart of the agency´s tea party scandal. But they don´t know how many of them are new. The emails were to and from Lois Lerner, who used to head the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. Last June, the IRS told Congress it had lost an unknown number of Lerner´s email when her computer hard drive crashed in 2011. At the time, IRS officials said the emails could not be recovered. But at a congressional hearing Thursday evening, IRS Deputy Inspector General

Immortalised as the green-eyed “Afghan Girl” on the June 1985 cover of National Geographic magazine, Sharbat Gula has reportedly been living in Pakistan with fake papers for at least the last year. The haunting and widely recognised photograph of Gula at age 12 was taken by photographer Steve McCurry in the Nasir Bagh refugee camp near Peshawar, and became one of the most recognisable magazine covers in recent history. After being photographed, Gula stayed out of the limelight for years, until she was rediscovered by McCurry in 2002. The photographer tracked her down and found her in a remote Afghan village living

MSNBC is set to pull the plug on contentious Reverend Al Sharpton in a last ditch attempt to revive dwindling audience numbers. The liberal anchor´s nightly Politics Nation show is to be shelved by broadcasting bosses as they make drastic changes in the hope of clawing back viewers.

Avijit Roy, a native of Bangladesh, was an engineer by training, an atheist, the proprietor of a web site, and the author of a number of books. Recently, he has lived in the United States, but has been threatened with death by radical Muslims because of his religious and social views. His wife, Rafida Ahmed Bonna, was raised as a Muslim but supported Roy’s work as an atheist. Earlier today, they were in Dhaka, Bangladesh for a book fair that featured two of Roy’s books. While walking back from the book fair between 8:30 and 9:00 p.m., they were attacked by men wielding cleavers. While they have not been caught, no one doubts that they

Plummeting temperatures have broken hundreds of winter records across the country - making February one of the coldest months in history. But in New England, it has gotten so cold even the waves are starting to freeze. These incredible photos of so-called ´slurpee waves´ were taken by surfer Jonathan Nimerfroh in Nantucket, Massachusetts. He took his camera out when he noticed the horizon looked strange - and then spotted the surf had turn slushy.

Islamic State thugs have destroyed a collection of priceless statues and sculptures in Iraq dating back thousands of years. Extremists used sledgehammers and power drills to smash ancient artwork as they rampaged through a museum in the northern city of Mosul. Video footage shows a group of bearded men in the Nineveh Museum using tools to wreck 3,000-year-old statues after pushing them over. One of the items, depicting a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity, dates back to the 9th century B.C. A man shown in the video said the items were being destroyed because they promoted idolatry.

While you were all engrossed by CPAC and rampant llamas, the Federal Communications Commission today voted in favor of new net neutrality regulations that, if fully implemented, would mean internet service providers could not discriminate in which sites and services customers would get access to.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.— Why are thousands of European Muslims flocking to radical Islam? According to UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, “state sponsored multiculturalism” deserves much of the blame for why extremism has found a home in Europe. “We [the U.K.] have pursued a policy for nearly four decades now of multiculturalism,” Farage told The Daily Caller Thursday. “We have encouraged division. Rather than having different communities coming together, under one law, we have encouraged division.” “That policy I think has been a dramatic failure,” the Member of European Parliament (MEP) added.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — A federal judge on Thursday firmly dismissed allegations that Argentine President Cristina Fernandez tried to cover up the involvement of Iranian officials in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center, easing a crisis for her government fed by the death of the prosecutor who brought the case. Judge Daniel Rafecas said the documents originally filed by the late prosecutor Alberto Nisman failed to meet "the minimal conditions needed to launch a formal court investigation." "There is not a single element of evidence, even circumstantial, that points to the actual head of state," the judge said. Nisman had filed the

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made a passionate case for his potential presidential bid on Thursday, casting himself as a conservative warrior able to win competitive races. Bookended by standing ovations from attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Walker described Wisconsin under his tenure as a conservative paradise where unions have been busted, property taxes lowered, test scores raised, anti-abortion legislation passed, and concealed-carry laws passed. "If we can do it in Wisconsin, there’s no doubt we can do it across the rest of America,” he said. His case also extended to foreign policy.

France, Belgium and now even liberal Denmark regret letting in so many immigrants from Muslim countries. Their swelling Islamic communities have become breeding grounds for terrorists. So why is the U.S. opening the floodgates to foreign Muslims? The threat Muslim immigrants pose to homeland security was not addressed during the White House´s three-day summit on terrorism. Instead, Vice President Joe Biden assured Muslim groups gathered during one session that the "wave" of Muslim immigration is "not going to stop." Wave? More like a tsunami. Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations —

But that was no deterrent for Jeb Bush. His team hired the firm anyway and quickly made it clear that it wanted undivided allegiance. The company, FP1 Strategies, soon severed ties with Mr. Perry, startling his staff. Mr. Bush has vowed to run a “joyful” presidential campaign free from the seamier sides of party politics, projecting the air of a cerebral man almost effortlessly drawing together Republicans eager
