The United States should be prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons against Iran if war becomes inevitable, Rep. Duncan Hunter believes, but he "sure as hell" hopes it doesn't happen.
Iran's foreign minister said that Western economic sanctions on the Islamic republic's disputed nuclear program have "utterly failed."
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is taking another look at the case of a Marine sergeant who fell on a grenade, smothering the blast and saving the lives of his squadmates in Iraq, but who has been denied the Medal of Honor by the two previous defense secretaries.
The U.S. military's main battlefield intelligence processor, so crucial to the war in Afghanistan, still lacks an element common to civilian computer networks — a cloud.
Nearly half of Congress promised to share federal workers' pain during the partial government shutdown by forsaking pay — but now that the shutdown is over and employees got paid, many lawmakers say they deserve their own checks.
The Army is redesigning a major component of its battlefield intelligence network in Afghanistan that has been criticized by soldiers, weapons testers and lawmakers.
The Pentagon's main battlefield intelligence network in Afghanistan is vulnerable to hackers — both the enemy or a leaker — and the U.S. command in Kabul will cut it off from the military's classified data files unless the Army fixes the defects within 60 days, according to an official memo obtained by The Washington Times.
Rep. Duncan Hunter said Tuesday that President Obama would be breaking the law and even inviting impeachment if he went ahead with strikes on Syria after a congressional rejection.
Islamist rebels in Syria, the lead force in the armed opposition, would benefit from a U.S. bombing campaign against the Syrian regime and advance their goal of seizing power in Damascus, analysts said Wednesday.
There's a growing sense in Congress that the U.S. should take more steps to arm Syrian rebels in their battle against the regime of President Bashar Assad, regardless of what decision President Obama reaches on whether to conduct military strikes against Damascus.
Congress is increasingly resisting the administration's case for limited military strikes against the Syrian government, though sentiment is growing on Capitol Hill that President Obama can — and must — find a way to do more to arm moderate rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad.
Congressional auditors said Wednesday they are launching a first-of-its-kind review of the system for safeguarding national security secrets, with a view to measuring the scale of a widely understood but unquantified problem — "classification inflation."
House Republicans launched an all-out attack Wednesday on what they say are the secretive, pseudo-scientific "cost of carbon" metrics that the Obama administration is using to justify increasingly harsh environmental regulations.
Aaron Negherbon, who founded the nonprofit TroopsDirect, said his organization has shipped more than 180,000 pounds of essentials to troops since 2010, giving a new meaning to the idea of a CARE package.
The Army's vaunted battlefield intelligence processor is "difficult to operate" and suffers "workstation system failures," a confidential government report says.
"At some point, there needs to be some realization that solutions exist to all the things that can't be done internally," Mr. Hunter said Tuesday. "And through all of this, what's most frustrating is that the men and women on the ground are the ones losing out, and that's a real disservice to them and their mission."
