The Obama administration's drone war is escalating and the number of civilian deaths is increasing. The program is creating more enemies than it is destroying.

President Obama intends to put the "full weight" of his efforts and his office behind attempts to pass new restrictions on firearms in the new year, he told host David Gregory in an interview aired on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday.

President Obama has placed a federal judge in an “inescapable, paradoxical situation” in a case challenging the federal government’s authority to hide warrantless wiretapping behind a “state secrets” shield, the judge said at a hearing on December 14.

A late amendment added to the National Defense Authorization Act has dropped the decades-long ban on federal funding of military abortions for rape and incest.

By a vote of 73-23, the United States Senate voted to extend for five years the FISA Amendments authorizing the warrantless wiretapping of domestic communications.
