Iran’s nuclear program is once again raising concerns among members of the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), who claim in a new report that, despite earlier signs of cooperation this year, Tehran is leaving key questions unanswered about possible plans to ramp up its uranium enrichment capabilities by the end of this summer.

Castro Slams Obama

Semi-retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro thinks Barack Obama is “the most-advanced candidate in the presidential race,” so he must have been disappointed to hear that Obama would continue an embargo against the island nation.

Greetings From Mars

For seven agonizing minutes, scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory had no idea if the $420 million and countless hours invested in the Phoenix Mars Lander would amount to more than a black spot on the Red Planet.

Former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia has been chosen by Libertarians to carry the party’s banner in November, beating out Mary Ruwart, former Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel and others.

McCain Pushes Hagee, Parsley Away

This wasn’t the best week for Sen. John McCain’s (former) religious advisers, the Revs. John Hagee and Rod Parsley—primarily because the Republican front-runner has effectively given them both the political heave-ho following the public re-airing of their takes on Israel and Islam, respectively.
