The idea that the American military leaves none of its soldiers behind has been under perhaps more scrutiny than ever since May 31. That's the day Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was exchanged with the Taliban for five Taliban captives held by the U.S. at the prison on Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Bergdahl had been imprisoned by the Taliban since 2009, and was the last American prisoner of war. Since the transfer, many have questioned the circumstances surrounding his capture and release. But the military's response, from President Obama and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on down and regardless of whether Bergdahl abandoned his duties, has been simple: America does not leave its soldiers behind.
In the US a Canadian college student caught at a border checkpoint with 51 live turtles in his pants has pleaded guilty to six smuggling charges. 27 year old Kai Xu of Windsor, Ontario, admitted to smuggling or trying to smuggle more than 1,600 turtles of different species out of the United States. The smuggling period was from April 2014 until his arrest in September 2014. Each of the six counts carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
The FBI says it processed a record number of firearms background checks on Black Friday. The agency processed a record 185,345 background checks — roughly two per second — the same day that three people were killed and nine others wounded in an attack at a Planned Parenthood office in Colorado. A background check does not mean a gun was purchased but manufacturers rely on the background check statistics as a measurement of the industry's health.
Bruce Campbell is causing a stir with some purposefully spilled coffee through a remarkably ringed stain. According to the star of Ash Vs. Evil Dead, fans of the Walking Dead and their series protagonist can rest easy. Ash Williams has the whole zombie apocalypse under control. In a tweet revealing the "leaked" single page script, Campbell twisted a short tale in which Rick Grimes awakes in a hospital. As he peers out the window, a macabre scene fills his view. Decapitated bodies litter the street below with Ash Williams coolly telling the Walking Dead character to go back to sleep; he also titled the script Ash vs. Walking Dead. The TV adaptation of the Evil Dead movies can be seen on Starz airing Saturday nights.
After one of the ingredients in the Turkey & Stuffing Panini was linked to an E. coli outbreak at Costco, coffee giant Starbucks has recalled the holiday offerings from nearly 1,400 locations across three western states. According to Bloomberg, Taylor Farms Pacific issued a recall for several products containing celery after the CDC found E. coli present in an onion and celery blend used in Costco's Rotisserie Chicken Salad during a test in Montana. The Starbucks sandwich being recalled contains celery as part of its cranberry cornbread stuffing.
The United States said on Tuesday it was deploying a new force of special operations troops to Iraq to conduct raids against Islamic State there and in neighboring Syria, a ratcheting up of Washington's campaign against the group that met a cool reaction in Iraq. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said the deployment of the new "specialized expeditionary targeting force" was being carried out in coordination with Iraq's government and would aid Iraqi government security forces and Kurdish peshmerga forces. Carter told the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, "These special operators will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence and capture ISIL leaders."
