Question of the Day
Pakistan’s stance on bin Laden frustrates
Two high-profile congressional leaders expressed some frustration Sunday with Pakistan over its role in the recent commando raid that resulted in the killing of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden.
Sen. Richard G. Lugar, Indiana Republican, said the incident shows the Pakistan government has not been upfront with the United States.
“It seems obvious to me … a lot of people in Pakistan knew about [bin Laden’s] whereabouts,” Mr. Lugar said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, echoed those comments on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“It is extremely hard to believe he could have survived there without some kind of support system” inside the Pakistani government, Mr. Kerry said.
Catholic priest chaplain nominee
House Speaker John A. Boehner said he will nominate the Rev. Patrick J. Conroy, a Catholic priest who now teaches at Jesuit High School in Portland, Ore., as the next House chaplain.
Mr. Conroy, a 60-year-old native of Washington state, will succeed the Rev. Daniel Coughlin, who retired last month after 11 years in the position and was the first Roman Catholic priest to serve as chaplain.
Father Conroy would be the 60th House chaplain. The duties include opening each session with a prayer, presiding over memorials and other ceremonies and providing pastoral counseling to the House community.
Father Conroy entered the Society of Jesus in 1973 and was ordained a priest in 1983. He has also served as a chaplain at Georgetown University. His nomination goes to the full House later this month.
