The murder conviction this week in federal court in Baltimore of a Jamaican woman brought to a close a four-year undercover investigation that targeted a brutal criminal gang responsible for the distribution of millions of dollars worth of drugs in five states, including Maryland.
Sen. Barack Obama said Monday that he won't tolerate people challenging his patriotism or his rival's military service, and Sen. John McCain announced a "truth squad" to combat attacks on his Vietnam service.
Carl Smith, a former Navy pilot who served with Mr. McCain, said the Arizona Republican showed his leadership skills while commanding a Navy flight training squadron in Florida after the war.
"He was that much better than everybody else," Mr. Smith said. "The credit goes to John McCain and his extraordinary leadership; it's as simple as that."
