Palestinian negotiators mulled over an Egyptian proposal to end the monthlong Israel-Hamas war as the latest 72-hour cease-fire in the Gaza Strip was due to expire at midnight Wednesday. Since the truce went into effect Sunday, Israel has halted military operations in the coastal territory and Gaza militants have stopped firing rockets. A member of the Palestinian delegation to Egyptian-brokered talks in Cairo said Wednesday that his team was considering an Egyptian proposal, which was tabled Tuesday.
The Pentagon has issued a report detailing an air strike on a field hospital in Afghanistan. On Wednesday officials stated that the attack which killed at least 30 people was a direct result of avoidable human error. Through the investigation the Defense Department found that some individuals did not follow rules of engagement on Oct. 3 in Kunduz. The ensuing bombardment of the Doctors Without Borders hospital lasted at least 29 minutes, resulting in 211 rounds on target. The investigation also concluded that the incorrect target was fired upon as an AC-130 gunship crew mistook the clinic for a nearby government building occupied by the Taliban. Their intended target was reportedly 450 feet away from the hospital grounds, but a technical malfunction required the aircrew to rely on visual descriptions of the target below. A Pentagon official added that due to tempo of the operation, fatigue helped lead to the tragedy.
Hillary Clinton says she will stop using the term “illegal immigrants”. The Democratic presidential frontrunner said her use of the term earlier this month was a “poor choice of words.” In a Facebook chat hosted by the Spanish-language television network Telemundo on Tuesday, she committed to stop using the term that dehumanizes undocumented immigrants. Clinton said during the Facebook chat, “As I’ve said throughout this campaign, the people at the heart of this issue are children, parents, families, DREAMers. They have names, and hopes and dreams that deserve to be respected” The change of tone comes two weeks after a New Hampshire campaign stop where Clinton praised her support as a Senator “to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in.”
The President spoke today with his national security team: FBI Director James Comey, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson and his national security adviser, Susan Rice. After the meeting, he addressed Americans concerns going into the Thanksgiving holiday by saying there are currently no "specific and credible" threats against the U.S. Obama said it was understandable that Americans might be nervous following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more. But he urged people to go about their normal activities around Thanksgiving.
The White House said, that President Barack Obama will deliver a statement in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on U.S. homeland security ahead of the holiday season at 11:40 a.m. (1640 GMT) on Wednesday. Obama will meet first in the Situation Room with his national security advisers, who according to the white house, will brief him on homeland security posture in the wake of the tragic attacks in Paris and as we enter the holiday season. The President will deliver the statement after the meeting.
You had me at “Buck.” After months of speculating and wishing and guessing and hoping about what we’d see from the Civil War story line, the first trailer dropped last night on Jimmy Kimmel and it looks like we have a good idea how these super powered heroes are going to come to blows against one another next year. It’s not an earth shattering event. It’s not the destruction of a small town. Not entirely, anyway. It appears the rift comes about over a broken up bromance.
