    Former federal judge and conservative legal scholar Robert Bork died early Wednesday at his Virginia home, his family confirmed to CNN. He was 85. Perhaps best known for his nomination to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1987, Bork was rejected for the post after a contentious confirmation battle led by left-leaning groups that opposed his conservative judicial philosophies. Bork had recently served as a senior legal adviser to Republican Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. He was a solicitor general during the Nixon administration and first gained notoriety for carrying out the president's order to fire the special prosecutor...

    Precise details of what transpired in Washington during the first week of the Yom Kippur War, launched by Egypt and Syria on October 6, 1973, are hard to come by, in no small measure owing to conflicting accounts given by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Secretary of Defense James Schlesinger regarding their respective roles. What is clear, from the preponderance of information provided by those directly involved in the unfolding events, is that President Richard Nixon overriding inter-administration objections and bureaucratic inertia implemented a breathtaking transfer of arms, code-named Operation Nickel Grass, that over a four-week period...

He had served only half of his thirty year sentence. Recently declassified information additionally reveals that Al-Jawary got help from New York's Iraqi diplomatic mission in communicating with his PLO masters. In March of 1973, Al-Jawary and possible accomplices planted three powerful car bombs: two along 5th Avenue near Israeli-owned banks, and one at Kennedy Airport. Timed to explode upon...

President Carter was all set in the summer of 1979 to give a speech calling the country's energy challenges "as serious as war itself and deserving of the same sustained national effort."...

CIA director Gen. Michael Hayden announced today that the Agency is declassifying the full 693-page file amassed on CIA's illegal activities by order of then-CIA director James Schlesinger in 1973--the so-called "family jewels." Only a few dozen heavily-censored pages of this file have previously been declassified, although multiple Freedom of Information...

    If judged only by what is heard on his White House tapes, Richard Nixon, who resigned the presidency 31 years ago this week, appears to have been a man obsessed with Jews, stewing in negative feelings, never hesitating to use the crudest of slurs. But if talk alone is the true measure of a man, Harry Truman who habitually made derogatory remarks about Jews and whose home in Independence, Missouri, was off-limits to them would have to be considered an anti-Semite of the first order. It`s a safe bet that those who complain the loudest about Nixon`s anti-Semitic...

    The Israel Air Force on Sunday positioned a battery of Patriot anti-aircraft missiles in the Haifa Bay area, in order to intercept any Hezbollah-operated drones launched from Lebanon. The decision to place the battery was reached after a Hezbollah drone invaded Israeli airspace over the town of Nahariya last month. The Iranian-made drone managed to fly in Israeli skies for about 15 minutes, undetected by the IDF's anti aircraft forces. At first, IDF officials interpreted the incident as a Hezbollah muscle flex. Later, however, the IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon said that such a drone could theoretically carry 50...

    These days former Vietnam war POW Sen. John McCain has nothing but praise for his fellow Vietnam veteran, Sen. John Kerry, the Democrats' current presidential front-runner. But after he was released from the Hanoi Hilton in 1973, Sen. McCain publicly complained that testimony by Kerry and others before J. William Fullbright's Senate Foreign Relations Committee was "the most effective propaganda [my North Vietnamese captors] had to use against us." "They used Senator Fullbright a great deal," McCain wrote in the May 14, 1973 issue of U.S. News & World Report. While he was languishing in a North Vietnamese prison cell,...

    Politicians were insufficiently informed, and failed to understand the information they did have on the eve of the Yom Kippur War, said Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, on Sunday as he released secret committee transcripts from the eve of the Yom Kippur War. The transcripts, kept from the public until now for security reasons, were released as required by law after 30 years save for two sections, which may be released later, said Steinitz at a press conference in the state archives in Jerusalem. Some of the information failure arose from questions politicians...

    In his home near Tel Aviv this summer, a retired general recalled the impact on him of the surprise attack that opened the Yom Kippur War. One of Israel's most aggressive armor commanders, he was serving in 1973 as a deputy division commander. "Your body breaks out in a cold sweat... Your mind freezes up. The only military response you are capable of is what you have rehearsed, even if it is not appropriate to the unexpected circumstances." The shock induced by that war 30 years ago continues to haunt men who participated in it. Many are still jarred from...
