    AN RAF warplane targeting IS was badly damaged after hitting a stray dog as it landed at 200mph. The Ł9.4million Tornado GR4 was returning to a base in Cyprus after a night sortie. Its fearful pilot and navigator even considered ejecting from the jet — still carrying a payload of Brimstone and Paveway missiles. But a relieved source said: “No one was hurt, just shaken up.” Tuesday’s scare at RAF Akrotiri saw fire crews race on to the runway, as a refuelling tanker that had accompanied it was forced to circle for half an hour. Damage to the undercarriage was...

It is a fresh embarrassment for the German defence ministry which has been battling equipment problems. The six aircraft sent to Syria are fitted with surveillance technology and had been touted as being capable of taking high-resolution photos and infrared images, even at night and in bad weather.

    What’s the difference between keeping President Obama “updated throughout the night” on a deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi and keeping him “updated throughout the night” on a deadly tornado in Oklahoma? The president could have actually done something about Benghazi. Have you been watching the president the past 36 hours or so? Lots of photos of him calling officials in Oklahoma, offering federal help. Speeches in front of the camera expressing his condolences to the tornado victims and pledging to rebuild. “Our prayers are with the people of Oklahoma today,” Obama said yesterday, “and we’ll back up those prayers with...
