A federal appeals court Tuesday backed the U.S. government's decision not to release photos and video taken of Osama bin Laden during and after a raid in which the terrorist leader was killed by U.S. commandos.
Hollywood continues its collaboration with Chinese censors even as it pushes back against U.S. attempts to limit violent content in film and television in the aftermath of the mass killing in Newtown, Conn., last December, experts observe.
Michelle Obama's three-day tour to Chicago, Mississippi and Missouri to promote her "Let's Move!" campaign will hit taxpayers' wallets at a sum of $50,000 or more.
More than a few Republicans in the United States Senate seem to have contracted a severe case of what Harry Truman called “Potomac Fever” (wanting to go along to get along in Washington). Apparently still trembling from the recent election debacle, they have cobbled together a deceptive and destructive “bipartisan” compromise on illegal alien amnesty.
A Pentagon watchdog has referred for possible prosecution a senior military intelligence official who gave the name of a U.S. special operations forces commander to Hollywood filmmakers researching a movie about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, a senior House Republican said Tuesday.
Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal were knee-deep in preparing the follow-up to their Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker," a film that would chronicle the manhunt for Osama bin Laden, his escape in Tora Bora and the vanishing trail of the world's most wanted man.
Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal were knee-deep in preparing a film — their follow-up to their Oscar-winning "The Hurt Locker — that would chronicle the manhunt for Osama bin Laden, his escape in Tora Bora, Afghanistan, and the vanishing trail of the world's most-wanted man.
Citing the destruction of Superstorm Sandy, the Obama administration has waived immigration laws for illegal immigrants now in the United States, arguing that the immigrants' ability to maintain their lawful immigration status or obtain other immigration benefits may have been hampered by the deadly storm.
The killing of Osama bin Laden last year was referenced repeatedly this week at the Democratic National Convention. This is ironic, as President Obama, in denying requests for basic information about the raid, said he wasn't going to release the information because he didn't want to be seen as "spiking the football."
The Washington-based legal group Judicial Watch earlier this month sent an investigator to Guantanamo Bay Naval Air Station, Cuba, to watch the May 5 arraignment of Khalid Shaikh Mohammad (aka KSM) and four others accused of plotting and executing the Sept. 11, 2001, airline attacks.
A year after the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda is hobbled and hunted, too busy surviving for the moment to carry out another Sept. 11-style attack on U.S. soil. But the terrorist network dreams still of payback, and U.S. counterterrorist officials warn that, in time, its offshoots may deliver.
First lady Michelle Obama's much-criticized trip to Spain in 2010 cost taxpayers at least $467,000, a government watchdog group said Thursday after obtaining Secret Service and Air Force documents.
First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions she's forcefully imposed her will on White House aides, saying she's tired of people portraying her as "some kind of angry black woman."
The Justice Department has been empowered to use millions of dollars intended to go to victims of racial discrimination to enrich pressure groups with close White House ties. It's another revelation of the means the Obama administration is using to divert funds to political cronies.
Five days after being killed, Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was finally buried at dawn in an undisclosed location in the Sahara desert. This would have been five days too late had President Obama been calling the shots. Osama bin Laden's remains were famously disposed of within hours of his death and "eased into the sea" in conformance with Islamic practice, according to the White House. Families of the victims of bin Laden's atrocities have to take the government's word for it that he's actually dead because the Obama administration continues to refuse to provide proof.
