BALAD, Iraq — Dizzy, vomiting and struggling to breathe, 11 Iraqi police officers were rushed to a government hospital 50 miles north of the capital last month. The diagnosis: poisoning by chlorine gas. The perpetrators, according to the officers: Islamic State extremists. The chlorine attack appears to be the first confirmed use of chemical weapons by the Islamic State on the battlefield. An Iraqi Defense Ministry official corroborated it, and doctors said survivors’ symptoms were consistent with chlorine poisoning. It is one of three crude chlorine attacks that Iraqi forces say have occurred since the extremists seized vast tracts of

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel on Thursday announced a landmark determination that the Department of the Army engaged in “frequent, pervasive and humiliating,” gender-identity discrimination against Tamara Lusardi, a veteran and civilian Army software specialist who transitioned from male to female. Lusardi was working in the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (“AMRDEC”) in Redstone, Ala., when she transitioned from male to female in 2010. During that time, the Army improperly restricted her restroom usage, referred to her with male pronouns and by

Alaska Sen. Mark Begich: I voted

Democratic Sen. Mark Begich has distanced himself from President Obama as he seeks reelection in deeply conservative Alaska, but he acknowledged Wednesday that he voted for Mr. Obama in 2008 and 2012. Still, Begich added, those votes are "irrelevant" because the president is leaving office in two years. The remarks came during an interview with the Washington Examiner, when the senator was asked whether he voted for the president. "I did, but that´s irrelevant," Begich replied. "The president´s not relevant. He´s gone in two years." Begich may have decided that candor was the right approach to the question after watching

Attorney General Eric Holder told Justice Department lawyers that he was "exasperated" about leaks from the federal investigation into last summer´s police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old in a St. Louis suburb, a Justice official told CBS News Thursday. Holder´s comments come days after The New York Times reported that the Ferguson, Missouri, police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown told investigators that he was in fear for his life as they struggled over the officer´s gun. At a meeting of Justice lawyers Wednesday, Holder said he was "exasperated" at the "selective flow of information coming out of Missouri," and

When onetime White House intern Monica Lewinsky broke her silence with a major speech earlier this week, one subject brought her nearly to tears. Lewinsky’s voice cracked as she recalled the moment in January 1998 when she was first confronted by FBI agents and lawyers working for Kenneth W. Starr’s Office of Independent Counsel, who threatened her and her mother with criminal prosecution if she did not agree to wear a wire against President Bill Clinton. Lewinsky, now 41, has long felt she was mistreated by authorities in the 12-hour marathon session, which began as a sting at the food court at the Pentagon City mall and then

The Obama administration is claiming executive privilege over more than 15,000 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, including correspondence between Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, according to records received Wednesday night by the watchdog group Judicial Watch. Last month, a federal judge ordered the Justice Department to release to Judicial Watch the list of documents, known as a “Vaughn index,” that it is withholding from the public, calling its requests for further delays “unconvincing.” The 1,307-page Vaughn index lists 15,662 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that the Obama administration is asserting executive privilege over—the first

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office says the longtime Democratic leader isn’t going anywhere — no matter which party controls the Senate after the midterm elections. Citing Reid’s success in leading his party to victory over the last four cycles, a spokesman for the Nevada Democrat says he’ll return to lead his party in 2015 — whether it’s in the majority or minority. “Sen. Reid has engineered every Democratic majority of this century,” Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told The Hill. “The only reason Democrats are in a strong position to hold onto the majority this cycle is because of Democratic

Late last night the Department of Justice complied with a court order and turned over a list to government watchdog Judicial Watch , known as a Vaughn Index, of Fast and Furious documents being held from Congress and the American people under President Obama´s assertion of executive privilege. Not surprisingly, DOJ failed to fully comply with the requirements of providing a Vaughn Index. The Vaughn index explains 15,662 documents. Typically, a Vaughn index must: (1) identify each record withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by

MONROVIA, Liberia — Even as Liberians fall ill and die of Ebola, more than half the beds in treatment centers in the capital remain empty because of the government’s order that the bodies of all suspected Ebola victims in Monrovia be cremated. Cremation violates Liberians’ values and cultural practices and the order has so disturbed people in the west African nation that the sick are often kept at home and, if they die, are secretly buried, increasing the risk of more infections President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf issued the cremation decree for Monrovia and the surrounding area in August, and the government has

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State University´s fired band director witnessed more sexually charged incidents than previously reported, once proposed punishing a female band member who reported sexual assault and kept a calendar of nearly nude male band members in his office, school attorneys said in response to his federal lawsuit. In continuing to defend Jonathan Waters´ July 24 dismissal, the university alleged that he misled university investigators and repeatedly acted to conceal the culture of the band from outsiders. The filing in U.S. District Court in Columbus lists three sexual assault allegations brought to Waters while he was serving as interim director

BUFFALO, New York—New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo refused to take the blame for problems relating to the Common Core educational standards among other issues at a candidates debate forum hosted by WNED in Buffalo on Wednesday night. Westchester County Executive Republican Rob Astorino, Libertarian Mike McDermott, and Green Party nominee Howie Hawkins joined the governor. "Cuomo’s Common Core has been an unmitigated disaster.

The Big Apple may have its first case of Ebola. A 33-year-old Doctors Without Borders physician who treated Ebola patients in Guinea and returned to New York City 10 days ago was rushed in an ambulance with police escorts from his Harlem home to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday, sources said. Craig Spencer was suffering from Ebola-like symptoms — a 103-degree fever and nausea, sources said. Clad in hazmat suits, FDNY hazardous materials specials sealed off his fifth-floor apartment.

Palin Endorses Independent-Democratic
Ticket for Alaska Governor
Against GOP Successor

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spent the early part of the 2014 midterms traveling the country endorsing conservative candidates in Republican primary races, hoping to leave her mark on the future of the GOP. But on Wednesday, Palin rebuked her Republican successor in her home state, endorsing independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker, who is running on a "unity ticket" with Democratic running mate Byron Mallott, instead. Palin´s endorsement goes against her former lieutenant governor, Gov. Sean Parnell, who assumed office in 2009 when Palin abruptly resigned and is embroiled in a highly contested race for reelection to a second full term.

Years of disappointment and tension between Democrats and their president are now on open display as politicians, party leaders and strategists worried about their chances in the midterm elections begin casting about for someone to blame. A party and its president often go their separate ways during the final years of a second term, and Democrats say they appreciate Obama´s decision to avoid campaigning in competitive states. But that doesn´t do much to soften frustration with what they describe as near-political malpractice by the White House, basic missteps that some blame on an insular president who they say takes advice from

Boko Haram has allegedly abducted dozens more girls in north-east Nigeria, damaging hopes of a ceasefire agreement with the government. The latest kidnappings took place during a large-scale assault by the insurgent group on two villages in the remote and lawless Adamawa state, according to residents. The attacks on the villages of Waga Mangoro and Garta happened last Saturday - a day after the Nigerian government claimed to have brokered a truce with the group.

Between his own tweets and an interview with Breitbart News, billionaire game show host Donald Trump is suddenly and unexpectedly harshly critical of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who Trump endorsed in 2012. Amid on-and-off chatter that Romney will make a third run for the White House, Trump tweeted Wednesday that Romney wouldn’t even hire himself after the “horrendous” loss he suffered in 2012. He said in a recent interview that Romney “had his chance and he blew it.” After an enthusiastic endorsement of Romney in 2012, what inspired Trump to pull the trigger now? “By blowing the gimme election [in 2012],

ISIS makes its fortune by selling oil from seized territory to its enemies, including the Syrian government it has vowed to topple and to Kurds in Iraq, a U.S. official said Thursday. The official, Undersecretary David Cohen of the Treasury Department, is in charge of cracking down on ISIS finances. In remarks prepared for a speech to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, he said that ISIS “has amassed wealth at an unprecedented pace.” Unlike al Qaeda, he said, ISIS gets only a small share of its money from deep-pocketed donors. It relies mostly on black-market oil sales, extortion and ransom payments,

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle thinks that young, attractive women should be excused from voting so they could devote their time to online dating. Guilfoyle, the ex-wife of former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, appeared on The Five along with her four-co-hosts Tuesday to discuss the challenges the Republican Party has been facing in swaying young women to vote conservative. When Guilfoyle’s fellow panelist Greg Gutfield suggested that married, older women tend to vote Republican because ´with age comes wisdom,´ the 45-year-old former California prosecutor launched into a tirade calling out younger women for their perceived ignorance.

Monica Lewinsky is back — and this time she has a cause. The woman who became a punch line for sexual encounters with Bill Clinton is returning to the spotlight after more than a decade, hoping to become an advocate for ending bullying online. While her speech on the topic in Philadelphia drew a standing ovation, it remains to be seen whether Lewinsky can escape her past — and the politics of being “that woman” — to help end what she calls a “culture of humiliation.” Vanity Fair, which hired Lewinsky as a contributor, said the response to her first foray into public

The Bel Air, Md. man arrested Wednesday for jumping the White House fence was arrested in July for hopping over a barrier at the White House and then, three days later, detained for trying to break into the Department of Treasury. According to D.C. Superior Court documents, Dominic Adesanya, 23, was charged with unlawful entry for trying to enter the White House complex on July 27 at around 8 p.m. after he was stopped by a Secret Service officer who noticed that Adesanya had jumped over a security barrier at the intersection of East Executive Avenue and E Streets NW.
