    ISIS in Iraq and Syria has been “dismantled,” with tens of thousands of its jihadist fighters dead, but a promising lead on its leader “went dead” after a media leak, according to a key U.S. military official. “We have absolutely dismantled his network,” Gen. Tony Thomas, speaking of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, said at the Aspen Security Forum. “I mean everyone who worked for him initially is dead or gone. Everybody who stepped to the plate the next time [is] dead or gone. Down through a network where we have killed, in a conservative estimate, 60,000 to 70,000 of his...

    Although it did not go unreported, convicted Chicago political influencer Tony Rezko's 10-year prison sentence was treated as an afterthought during the short Thanksgiving workweek. Also an afterthought: the amazing facility with which President Obama has completely escaped Rezko's orbit in the liberal mainstream media's standard narrative.

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- More problems are occurring at the Osceola County Jail, which could leave workers without jobs. Alexander Keith, an inmate at Osceola County Jail, passed himself off as someone else to get out of jail. When police arrested Keith several days ago, he didn't have any identification, but he did have the address, Social Security number and birthday of Harry Carter. A fingerprint analysis was done, but no one caught the mistake until just a couple of days ago. A judge let Keith out on a $250 bond. It should have been more than $1,000. This mix-up comes...

It is the first time a GM plant has escaped into the wild in the US, and it has managed it before securing USDA approval. The plant, creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera, carries a...
