Question of the Day
On May 15, 2007, one day after the incident, the U.S. military reported that Bauguess died of wounds sustained from “enemy small arms fire,” but did not mention that the gunman was Pakistani.
It is unclear from the U.S. investigation report whether the gunman was killed in an ensuing exchange of gunfire with U.S. soldiers. The Army investigation was conducted in the days after the attack and withheld from public release until Monday, when declassified excerpts from an executive summary were released.
Pakistan is a U.S. counterterrorism ally and receives billions of dollars in aid from Washington, but U.S. officials say elements of the Pakistani government, principally its intelligence service, support the Taliban and harbored terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden
Date announced for U.S.-EU summit
President Obama and European Union leaders will hold a summit in Washington late this month.
The White House said Monday the president looks forward to meeting on Nov. 28 with European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and High Representative Catherine Ashton.
They are expected to discuss a broad range of issues at the White House, including the global economy, Iran and joint efforts to support democracy in Europe and across the Middle East and Africa. The most recent U.S.-EU summit took place in Lisbon, Portugal, last November.
Panel names sites of official debates
The committee that sponsors presidential debates for the general election has chosen Denver, Hempstead, N.Y., and Boca Raton, Fla., as the sites for three debates in October 2012.
President Obama will debate his Republican challenger on Oct. 3 at the University of Denver, Oct. 16 at Hofstra University in Hempstead and Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Monday. One vice-presidential debate will be held Oct. 11 at Centre College in Danville, Ky. Washington University in St. Louis will serve as a backup site.
The commission, established in 1987, has sponsored the official presidential and vice-presidential debates since 1988. To participate in the debates, candidates must have the support of at least 15 percent of the national electorate according to the average of polls conducted by five national polling organizations and appear on a sufficient number of state ballots to have a mathematical chance of winning the majority of the Electoral College votes.
