According to U.S. senior defense officials, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered some slightly falsified information in order to put pressure Russia to abandon its relationship with Syria, seemingly as part of a larger agenda to intervene in Syria.

The President's speech on the economy in Cleveland last week, promoted as "important," was a bust, especially among his most ardent supporters. 

At least 123 delegates to the Republican National Convention have joined as plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking to block the Republican National Committee from forcing them to cast their votes for the presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney.

Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul emerged from the Iowa state convention with a clear majority of the delegates being sent by the state to the GOP national convention in Tampa in August. Paul won 21 of the 25 contestable delegates, and will have 23 of the 28 total delegates Iowa will send to Tampa.

Twenty-six members of Congress — 24 Democrats and 2 Republicans (including Ron Paul) — sent a letter to President Obama demanding information on the authorization and use of drone strikes by the CIA and Joint Special Operations Command. It reads in part, “The implications of the use of drones for our national security are profound. They are faceless ambassadors that cause civilian deaths, and are frequently the only direct contact with Americans that the targeted communities have. They can generate powerful and enduring anti-American sentiment.”

The letter asks about the “nature of the follow-up that is conducted when civilians are killed or injured ... and the mechanisms that ensure civilian casualty members are collected, tracked and analyzed.”
