    You might think a confirmation hearing for, say, the labor secretary would elicit her views on, say, labor issues. Not, it seems, in the case of Barack Obama's nominee, California Democratic Rep. Hilda Solis. Should President-elect Obama lift the Bush-era executive order requiring that federally funded construction projects be open to both union and nonunion contractors? "Senator, I would just say to you that that is an item of great interest to me. I think that that is something that I am not able to speak to you (about) at this time but will like to review and then come...

    President-elect Barack Obama's choice to head the Labor Department has close ties to U.S. communist and socialist organizations and has sent representatives to functions organized by national parties for both ideologies. The pick of Rep. Hilda L. Solis, D-Calif., a Congressional Hispanic Caucus leader considered to be one of the most reliably pro-union voices in the House, was hailed as a victory by communist and socialist leaders...... An article this past weekend in the Communist Party USA's People's Weekly World Newspaper welcomed Solis and quoted known socialist leaders calling her a "great choice" and an "outstanding" selection with "a life-long...

    SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Chile's Supreme Court on Thursday refused to strip Gen. Augusto Pinochet of his immunity from prosecution, blocking yet another attempt to try him for alleged human rights abuses during his dictatorship. The Court's 15-4 vote rejected a lower court ruling that would have stripped the 89-year-old former ruler of the legal immunity he enjoys as former president. In announcing its decision the Supreme Court did not immediately publish the text of its ruling, which is believed to be based mainly on Pinochet's deteriorated health. On Dec. 2, the Santiago Court of Appeals had voted 14-9 to...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 - The documentary that Sinclair Broadcast Group has instructed 40 of its television stations to feature in a broadcast on Friday night makes some of the most serious accusations against Senator John Kerry of the campaign. The accusations include that he single-handedly prolonged the Vietnam War, worsened the torture of prisoners of war and ultimately caused countless, needless deaths with his antiwar activism 30 years ago. The film is rife with out-of-context and incomplete quotations from Mr. Kerry and other antiwar veterans. Several historians said many accusations in it were not provable or stretched far beyond reality....
