This makes sense because we heard the terrorists had two Americans to trade for the people they wanted released. I still think the Algerians handled it correctly.

Abdelmalek Sellal, Algeria´s prime minister, added on Monday that the kidnappers came from Egypt, Canada, Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Tunisia.

Since when have Canadians been part of terror groups?

Is Obama indirectly responsible for these attacks due to his refusal to capture terrorists and place them in Gitmo for interrogation? And, to insist on US Army field manual techniques rather than harsher CIA tactics for those we do capture?

To date, Obama´s killed over 3,000 suspected terrorists, including the American Alwaki with drone strikes. If some of these could have been captured without great risk of American life, could we have learned more about al-Qaeda´s plans for Benghazi, Mali, Tunesia, Algeria and the US?

Report last week linked Osama Bin Laden to al-Qaeda planning just 6 months before Obama put two bullets in his head. If we had taken Osama alive and placed him in Gitmo with CIA interrogators, we surely would have learned more than tossing his body off of an aircraft carrier.

You can thank the last administration for that!~!!

If we had that pipe line from Canada and if we were allowed to drill our own oil right here in the USA, there would would be no need for our people to be in Asia, Europe or Africa!!!!

And to think that we elected him for another four years.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.

Philip and Sherry Snow grew up Catholic in predominantly Christian towns on opposite sides of the country. Today, Philip and Sherry go by Ibrahim and Safiye, live on the North Side with their four children -- and are devout adherents to Islam. When Sherry met Philip, a convert to Islam, online in 1996, she had been questioning her Catholic faith but had no interest in learning about his religion. "I went through the whole gamut of stereotypes that I´d heard about Muslims," she said. But as she learned about Islam from Philip, she realized not just that

AKRON, Ohio — With an elite field chasing the lead, Tiger Woods decided to play keep-away. Already up by a staggering seven shots through 36 holes thanks to a career-tying best of 61 in the second round, Woods shot a solid 2-under 68 on Saturday in the Bridgestone Invitational to maintain that same seven-stroke lead. It was as if he was turning around and daring the world’s best players to come after him. No one really could.“You know, today was a day that I didn’t quite have it,” said Woods, who was at 15-under 195. “But I scored.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) hosted a packed forum about immigration reform in her home district of Houston, Texas last week. For anyone concerned about the specter of "comprehensive" immigration reform becoming legal reality, the event provided two cold, hard slaps in the face. The first, and expected smack was how the one-sided event completely ignored the very real problems the nation faces regarding immigration and jobs. The second, more stinging blow came with the realization that the anti-amnesty calvary didn´t arrive; while hundreds of pro-reform voices filled Houston´s City Hall, only three adults showed up to make the case

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

WASHINGTON— John Palmer, a veteran reporter for NBC News who covered wars and Washington over a career that spanned 40 years, died Saturday after a brief illness at a Washington hospital.

Her home, at times, was a shaded bench with a sight line toward the White House, in a tiny park used regularly by employees of the nearby World Bank. Jiamei Tian often sat alone, keeping a close eye on her cart and the blue laundry bag that held her belongings. Off in the distance, over her left shoulder, stood the Lincoln Memorial, and behind her stretched the Mall. She occupied a park managed by the National Park Service, the same agency that protects some of the national treasures that Tian is suspected of defacing with splotches of mint green paint.

The terror threat prompting the U.S. government to close nearly two dozen embassies and consulates Sunday is the most specific, credible threat information in years, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reports. Intelligence officers have reporting from a reliable source that a major plot is under way and that the team to carry it out has been selected and is in place, Miller reports. The threat information has been described as the most specific and credible since the foiled plot to blow up British planes en route to the United States in 2006, Miller reports. The specificity ends there.

Four people were killed and five others were injured during a bloody night in the city, including a 10-year-old girl out for a walk with friends, officials said. The violence kicked off at around 11:30 p.m. last night in Manhattan when Michael Patalano, 48, stabbed a neighbor to death in the Hamilton Heights apartment building where the two men live on West 142nd Street, authorities said. The men apparently had an argument before Patalano pulled a knife on the 49-year-old victim and knifed him in the chest, cops said. The victim, Anthony Demarta, was later pronounced dead

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.

The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill.

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?
