    The decision to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and kill him was made without President Obama – and actually was kept from him until after the helicopters already were in Pakistani airspace – according to a new report from a retired major general who cites a senior intelligence source. The raid was handled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta and others in this way because Obama had vetoed multiple earlier opportunities to attack the man behind the 9/11 terror attacks, the report said.

    Vatican II at 50By Kenneth J. Wolfe Fifty years ago today the Second Vatican Council began with a clear indication of who had gained control of the Catholic Church’s direction. From the Latin Mass to meatless Fridays to the concept of salvation, numerous components of the faith were set to be reformed, led mostly by clerical academics who had served on preparatory commissions. So powerful were they that Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, a conservative who headed what is now the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (which the future Pope Benedict XVI would later lead), was vocally heckled and silenced...

    Study of snake venom in mice reveals potential new strategy for relieving agony A snakebite may bring on a world of hurt, but a substance found in black mamba venom could actually relieve pain. The finding reveals a new possible approach for pain treatment, researchers report online October 3 in Nature. The black mamba, Dendroaspis polylepis polylepis, is one of the most lethal snakes on Earth. But a team of researchers in France found that compounds in the snake’s venom have the same pain-banishing effect on mice that morphine does. The compounds, called mambalgins, appear to work by blocking certain...

    Destined to go down in the annals of political farces, tonight’s debate proved one thing; just how increasingly desperate, juvenile, and out of touch Democrats really are as the election nears. Debates are supposed to be informative, professional forums that invoke a constructive discussion of the most pressing issues. Yet, it’s obvious Team Obama – which includes the home town moderator - realized they could not beat Ryan on the issues, so they decided to turn a democratic staple for the voting masses into a prime time circus replete with century-old, stale stereotypes and Jersey Shore sensationalism. If anyone actually...

    I have to ask this very seriously, do you know that this site has been completely unusable to perhaps thousands and thousands of others during either the first Presidential or Vice-Presidential debate and for an hour or so after their respective conclusions? This has never happened in previous election cycles during debates, election night results or during large breaking news events. Slow? Yes. Unusable, no. I've had multiple tabs opened for the debates this year and the FR one just wheel spin, wheel spin, wheel spin... blank page, no progress bar moving on the address bar. It's just the internet...

    Mitt Romney would likely have raised eyebrows, if not protest, had he said during the Republican primaries that "no legislation with regards to abortion" would be part of his agenda, that federal regulation is "essential'' or that young illegal immigrants should be able to keep work permits granted by President Barack Obama. GOP nominee Mitt Romney speaks Thursday with the Rev. Billy Graham, center, and his son, Franklin, at the Grahams' cabin in Montreat, N.C. . But conservative leaders and activists, some of whom worried about the firmness of Mr. Romney's commitment to their causes earlier this year, say they...

    The military contractor said cuts by the government necessitated the reductions. More than 200 hourly employees at the ITT Exelis facility in Roanoke County were laid off with about two weeks' notice Thursday, according to a company spokesman. It was not an entirely unexpected move by the company, which manufactures night vision goggles, monoculars and related gear and is a major supplier for the U.S. armed forces. "Due to anticipated U.S. defense government procurement reductions, we have experienced an impact on the size and frequency of night vision contracts," communications director Jared Adams said in a news release last week....
