    Now this was predictable: The State Department on Thursday said Hillary Clinton failed to turn over 15 work-related e-mails from her private server, despite claiming she’d handed over everything. Which raises the troubling question: How many more did she also, uh, “miss”? Remember, the former secretary of state and her aides had insisted they’d sent the department all her work-related e-mails from her personal server after conducting a “careful” review. Now it turns out she didn’t include 15 of those she’d exchanged with longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal concerning Libya. To comply with a subpoena, Blumenthal gave the House Select Committee...

    CBS News has obtained the CIA talking points given to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Sept. 15 regarding the fatal attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, four days earlier. CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan says the talking points, which were also given to members of the House intelligence committee, make no reference to terrorism being a likely factor in the assault, which left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead. "Available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault... There are indications...

    GOTHENBURG, Sweden — An unidentified man burst into flames while waiting outside a train station in Sweden, leaving police flummoxed, the Göteborgs-Posten reported. Witnesses said the man was standing outside a music shop at the Gothenberg central train station around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, when he suddenly caught on fire. "He just stood there burning outside the shop," a witness told the paper. "After a while he started screaming. There were a few people about but they just watched him. I ran up to him, tore my coat off and managed to put the fire out together with another guy." The...

Fenton Communications has been behind the public relations strategy of a who's who of far-left causes, organizations and activists, from Soros himself to Health Care for America Now to crafting strategies for and a litany of anti-war groups. Fenton, which works closely with Tides, first made its name representing communist dictatorships in the 1980s. Fenton's founder is tied to President Obama and to a slew of Saul Alinsky-style community organizing groups directly...

    Nuclear missiles could blow up 'like popcorn' By Duncan Gardham, Security Correspondent Last Updated: 8:59PM BST 25/06/2008 A design flaw in Britain's nuclear arsenal means that warheads could set off a chain reaction "like popcorn" if they were accidentally dropped, according to Ministry of Defence documents. More than 1,700 warheads are affected by the problem which would cause them to explode one after another, an effect known as "popcorning." A typical Trident nuclear missile contains three to six warheads, and some submarines carry up to 24 missiles, meaning the potential for disaster could be huge. Defence companies try to prevent...

    The recent unusual weather patterns have accelerated one of the strangest phenomena witnessed in the bush: an unprecedented number of haysheds have been spontaneously bursting into flames. Throughout the grain belt, it has been the worst season ever for spontaneous hayshed fires, according to the executive officer of the Australian Fodder Industry Association, Colin Peace. He estimates there have been 400 incidents of spontaneous combustion of haysheds in NSW alone. From northern NSW to South Australia, haystacks and haysheds have been bursting into flames. Drought, followed by summer rains, microbial growth in the stack and then hot, dry conditions can...

    The Remarkable Experience of Euley Hudson James Brooks I first met Euley Hudson about 20 years ago. He was an independent evangelist. Some years before, while working as a car salesman, he felt God calling him to go around the world preaching the gospel. No church, denomination, or mission board that he approached would back him, so he determined to go forth on his own. He told God that though man would not back him, he was going to obey God and let God provide. God did indeed provide him with the means to go around the world and he...

    The spontaneous combustion of a manure pile sparked a blaze that grew to about 200 acres Sunday, fire officials said. No injuries were reported and no structures were threatened. The blaze, dubbed the Red Star Fire because of its origins at the Red Star Fertilizer Co., was 50 percent contained, said Jonathan Pangburn, a spokesman with the California Department of Forestry. The fire was expected to be fully contained by late Sunday. The blaze, which consisted of a main 175-acre fire and several smaller ones, was reported shortly before 5 a.m. It was partially burning in Prado Regional Park near...

    CANNETO DI CARONIA, Sicily (Reuters) - The gate at the entrance to this tiny Sicilian village has come off its hinges and swings in the wind as cats wander into homes abandoned after a series of mystery fires. Reuters Photo A series of spontaneous fires started in mid-January in the town of Canneto di Caronia in about 20 houses. After a brief respite last month, the almost daily fires have flared up again -- even though electricity to the village was cut off. An endless flow of scientists, engineers, police and even a few self-styled "ghostbusters" have descended on the...
