WASHINGTON — The purported beheading of a second American journalist by ISIS is prompting Islamic leaders in the Washington area to not only condemn their actions, but to make clear the terror group does not speak for the Muslim community in the United States.(snip) The Council on American-Islamic Relations held a press conference at CAIR headquarters near Capitol Hill on Tuesday night to condemn the actions of ISIS. Islamic leaders say the group are not Muslims, but instead are criminals. “Let me be clear, the actions of ISIL are counter to the teachings of Islam and do not represent the

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that the problem of ´foreign fighters´ aiding the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) includes far more Americans than has been previously reported--at least 100 and counting. ´We have acknowledged publicly we are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with ISIL forces,´ he said during a televised interview. ´There may be more. We don´t know.´ Earlier estimates had only about a dozen so-called ´foreign fighters´ from the United States scattered across the Middle East in ISIS army units.

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis lied about her Dallas Cowboys fandom, according to information flagged by her Republican opponent Greg Abbott’s campaign. “I heard the coach the other day talking about the fact that he couldn’t make any promises about what he and the team would be able to accomplish this year,” Davis said in a KCTK radio interview Wednesday. “I certainly wish our Cowboys the best. I grew up cheering for the Cowboys and I haven’t stopped since, and I’ll be cheering for them again this year.” But wait a minute. Davis’ daughter Amber told Vogue in August

The family of Steven Sotloff, the latest American journalist beheaded by ISIS, is reportedly "outraged" at the Obama administration for "deliberate leaks" they interpret as "an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction." This reporting comes Wednesday from no less a source than the New York Times, which chose to bury the news under more than two dozen paragraphs: Last Thursday, Mr. Sotloff’s mother, Shirley, appealed to the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world, to grant amnesty to her son. “I ask you to use your authority to spare his life,” she said

"Since the time of the divorce I have tried to do everything in my power to be both a good dad and a former husband. It seems that nothing I can do at this point is enough, appropriate or adequate," he said.

The father of a man killed by an illegal immigrant in a car crash has challenged President Obama to visit his son’s grave before declaring any executive action halting deportations. In a letter that Don Rosenberg sent last month to Mr. Obama through top officials at the Homeland Security Department, the grieving father said his son Drew might be alive had the federal government deported illegal immigrants who had run-ins with the law. “My son and all of the others are considered collateral damage in the quest for votes and campaign contributions,” he wrote. “Illegal immigration is not a victimless

Speaking to a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, New York over the weekend, President Obama decided to put his own peculiar spin on world events. While conceding, “I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” the president said this: “And the truth of the matter is, is that the world has always been messy. In part, we’re just noticing now because of social media and our capacity to see in intimate detail the hardships that people are going through.” According to Mr. Obama, “If you watch the nightly news, it feels like

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

As CVS sharpens its focus on customer health, the nation´s second-largest drugstore chain will tweak its corporate name and stop the sale of tobacco nearly a month sooner than planned. CVS Caremark said it will now be known as CVS Health, effective immediately. The signs on its roughly 7,700 drugstores won´t change, so the change may not register with shoppers. However, those customers will see a big change when they check out. The cigars and cigarettes that used to fill the shelves behind store cash registers have been replaced with nicotine gum and signs urging visitors to kick the tobacco

The next time you have to take off your belt and shoes to gain access to the airplane you want to board, give a thought to Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the ISIS jihadi killed in Iraq. Because before he left Minnesota to fight for Allah, he worked as an airplane cleaner at Minneapolis St. Paukl International Airport, where he had “unfettered access” to airliners, the ramp area, and other supposedly secure areas. This information was uncovered by Fox affiliate KMSP: He was the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, and the second from Minnesota -- and a Fox

NEW ORLEANS — A federal judge upheld Louisiana´s ban on same-sex marriages on Wednesday, as well as the state´s refusal to recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states. U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman´s ruling broke a string of 20-plus court wins for supporters of same-sex marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year. Feldman said gay marriage supporters failed to prove that the ban violates equal protection or due process provisions of the Constitution. He also rejected an argument that the ban violated the First Amendment by effectively forcing

MINNEAPOLIS- He was the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, and the second from Minnesota -- and a Fox 9 exclusive uncovering his employment history is raising a few eyebrows. An airport is probably the last place anyone would want a suspected terrorist to work, but before he died overseas, that´s exactly what Abdirahmaan Muhumed did in the Twin Cities. In fact, he may have cleaned your plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Before he died, Muhumed left behind a trail of selfies and questions.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge broke ranks on Wednesday, ruling that Louisiana’s ban on same-sex couples’ marriages is constitutional. The ruling, from U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman, is the first federal court ruling upholding a state’s ban since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal law defining marriage as only including opposite-sex couples in June 2013. Feldman, appointed to the bench in 1983 by President Reagan, noted his departure from other judges, writing, “It would no doubt be celebrated to be in the company of the near-unanimity of the many other federal courts that have spoken to this pressing issue,

In spite of the Islamic State’s ritualistic beheadings of American citizens, President Barack Obama remains committed to addressing the threat posed by ISIS by internationalizing the response. “If we are joined by the international community,” Obama said on Wednesday, “we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.” “The question is going to be making sure we’ve got the right strategy but also making sure we’ve got the international will to do it,” he added. “And what we’ve got to do is make sure
