Benghazi case focuses attention on US interrogation strategy

BenGhazi tortureAfter a suspected militant was captured in Libya last year to face charges for the deadly 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, he was brought to the U.S. aboard a Navy transport ship on a 13-day trip that his lawyers say could have taken 13 hours by plane.

Ahmed Abu Khattala faced days of questioning aboard the USS New York from separate teams of American interrogators, part of a two-step process designed to obtain both national security intelligence and evidence usable in a criminal prosecution.


Soldier's journey to heal spotlights 'soul wounds' of war

Soul wounds of war"It was just another day in Mosul," the soldier began, his voice shaking. Sgt. 1st Class Marshall Powell took a deep breath. He couldn't look at the other three servicemen seated around him in the therapy session.

He'd rarely spoken about his secret, the story of the little girl who wound up in his hospital during the war in Iraq, where he served as an Army nurse. Her chest had been blown apart, and her brown eyes implored him for help. Whenever he'd thought of her since, "I killed the girl" echoed in his head.


Astronomers spot 20 million year young, 'Jupiter-like' planet

New Jupiter-like planetAstronomers have spotted a Jupiter-like planet that could hold the answer to how our solar system was formed.

The planet 51 Eridani b is roughly twice the size of Jupiter and young by planetary standards, at 20 million years old. At 800 degrees Fahrenheit, the planet's surface is still glowing with heat from its creation and offers clues about how it was formed, according to a study published in the journal Science on Thursday.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a district court judge's finding that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio did not have grounds to sue.

This One Thing Could Keep Cops From Being Shot On The Job

Guns cause cop deathsSupport for expansive gun rights and police officers often go hand in hand, and most conversations about gun control center on civilian casualties. But according to new research, gun control efforts benefit law enforcement, too.

"If you are looking to protect the lives of police officers -- if that’s something that interests you as a person, as a reader, as a policymaker -- consider the firearm laws in your state," said David Swedler.

11 year old gives birth after rapeAn 11-year old girl in Paraguay who was allegedly raped by her stepfather has given birth to a baby girl after being denied an abortion.

Doctors say the girl and her baby, who was delivered by Caesarean section, are doing well.  Paraguay, a predominantly Roman Catholic nation, only allows abortion when the mother's health is in danger.

Earlier this year, the health ministry said that was not so in this case and rejected a request for an abortion.

more cops die in states with gunsPolice officers are most likely to be killed in states where the most people own guns, a new study finds.

The report is sure to be controversial, but it adds a new dimension to a conversation that's recently been focused more on police shootings of unarmed Americans.

This study looks at who's killing the cops, and it's overwhelmingly people with private guns, David Swedler of the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health found.
