Question of the Day
The case claiming unlawful treatment of prisoners Yasser Al-Zahrani and Salah Ali Abdullah Ahmed Al-Salami is barred by the Military Commissions Act of 2006, U.S. District Judge Ellen Huvelle ruled Tuesday.
Al-Zahrani and Al-Salami were among three men who were reported to have committed suicide on the night of June 9, 2006. They were found hanging in their cells at the detention center at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
A recent article in Harper’s magazine by a lawyer who has long worked on detainee issues suggests that the three prisoners were transported by guards from their cells hours before their deaths to a secret facility on the island.
Clinton blames lack of sleep
NEW YORK | Bill Clinton says his failure to get enough sleep while working on behalf of Haitian earthquake victims probably accelerated his heart problem.
The former president also says he will try to manage his stress better.
Just days after undergoing a procedure to unclog a blocked artery, Mr. Clinton talked to children about childhood obesity. He spoke Wednesday at the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which works to promote heart health.
Mr. Clinton says he doesn’t intend to stop working as hard as he can.
Kentucky candidate uses Christian radio
FRANKFORT, Ky. | Republican Rand Paul is taking his Senate campaign to Christian radio in hopes of winning the support of Kentucky’s most ardent social conservatives, many of whom choose political candidates based on their stand against abortion.
Mr. Paul calls abortion “an abomination” in a political ad that will begin airing Monday. He goes on to say that he would vote for any law or constitutional amendment that would stop it.
Campaign manager David Adams said the ad will run on Christian radio stations across Kentucky beginning Monday, following a trend among Southern politicians who are increasingly tailoring messages to the GOP’s churchgoers.
The ad comes on the heels of claims by Republican opponent Trey Grayson that Mr. Paul doesn’t oppose abortion. He has made the accusations in stump speeches and debates in recent weeks.
