    The top White House spokesman on Friday tried to staunch a torrent of snarky commentary this week poking fun at President Obama´s assertion that he wasn´t interested in a border “photo op." Veteran CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller peppered White House press secretary Josh Earnest with questions about whether Obama really intended to eschew photo ops in general. “His view is that solving problems is most important, and solving problems is what somebody who´s exhibiting leadership is focused on,” Earnest said. “And that´s what the president was doing when he was in Dallas on Wednesday. It´s also what

    No photo ops for him.President Obama told the press on Wednesday that he did not need to got to the Texas border with Mexico to see the crisis firsthand. He didn’t need a photo-op. “You know Jeh Johnson went to the border, at my direction, five times. He went for the sixth this week… So there’s nothing that is going on there that I am not intimately aware of and briefed on. This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops. I’m interested in solving the problem.”

    On Sunday, President Obama made a surprise appearance in Afghanistan after sneaking out of the White House on Saturday night. There, he spoke with Afghan president Hamid Karzai via phone, because Karzai refused to speak with Obama in person. Obama told the troops, “For many of you, this will be your last tour in Afghanistan… America’s war in Afghanistan will come to a responsible end.” Obama’s visit was marred by the White House’s release of the name of a top CIA officer in Afghanistan. He was in the country for under four hours. The conspicuous timing of Obama’s visit, directly...

    A pro-Palestinian activist on the University of Michigan’s campus recently posted what experts described as “an overtly threatening” photo of himself wearing a traditional Arab headscarf and jamming a knife into a pineapple. The emergence of the photo comes just days after Palestinian activists on the University of Michigan’s campus leveled death threats and racial epithets at pro-Israel students who opposed a resolution to divest from Israel. Pro-Palestinian campus activists, angered by the student government’s recent decision to reject their divestment measure, leveled death threats at one student and have reportedly called other pro-Israel students “dirty Jew” and “kike.” The...

I raised my head up, and it was a photographer,” McDuffie told the Houston Chronicle in 2007. “I tried to get my hand out of the way so I wouldn’t block her face, and...

    When animal control officers were called to a Greenville, South Carolina, neighborhood to pick up a wandering pit bull on a cold Monday in December, they didn't expect a mystery to unfold. But inside a fold of the dog's collar, they found a wrinkled black-and-white photo. It had no name or date. A smiling man seated on a railing looks straight into the camera -- but, beyond that, the photo offers no clues. The friendly tan canine, now named Soldier because the man in the photo may be wearing a military uniform, was skinny but well-behaved, said Susan Bufano, community...

    The Obama Administration held talks with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, in the White House. The Investigative Project reported: Radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi is considered so radical that the United States bans him from entering the country. Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has called for the killing of Jews and Americans. That history makes the June 13 White House meeting with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah all the more inexplicable. Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded...

Judicial Watch sued for photographs and video from the May 2011 raid in which U.S. special forces killed bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, after more than a decade of...

    Millions of poignant black-and-white photos have come out of the World War Two era, but it is not often that scenes from the deadliest conflict in human history can be seen in living color. In 1942, LIFE Magazine sent Margaret Bourke-White, one of its four original staff photographers and the first female photojournalist accredited to cover WWII, to take pictures of the VIII Bomber Command, commonly known as the Eighth Air Force or The Mighty 8th. The photographs, executed in brilliant hues that make them look almost like oil paintings, put on full display the massive American B-24s and B-17s...
