Administration Plays Hide and Seek With Missing E-Mails

In an apparent effort to keep the estimated 5 million missing White House e-mails missing, the Justice Department is claiming that the White House Office of Administration, which handles IT support for the executive branch, is not covered by freedom-of-information law.

Tensions Build Between U.S., Iraqi Leaders

The Iraqi prime minster is now under attack from leading U.S. politicians.  Even President Bush is distancing himself.  As Nouri al-Maliki turns to find “friends elsewhere”—in Syria, which he is visiting, and in Iran, with which he has close ties—will he come to be viewed as yet another monster we created?

Another Alaska Lawmaker Investigated for Corruption

McClatchy is reporting that Congressman Don Young, R-Alaska, is under investigation for earmarking millions in funds for a road project in Florida that wasn’t even wanted by the local community but could have been something of a gold mine for one of his campaign contributors.
