Bowe Bergdahl's attorney wants to interview Donald Trump

BergdalsThe attorney for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, facing a court martial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, has requested to meet with Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump in a possible attempt to depose him for repeatedly calling Bergdahl a "traitor."

US military burn pits built on chemical weapons facilities tied to soldiers' illness

US military burn tied to soldier illnessesIn 2007, shortly after vice-president Joe Biden learned that his eldest son would be deployed to Iraq, the then-presidential hopeful turned to a modest crowd at the Iowa state fair and admitted that he didn’t want Beau to go. “But I tell you what,” he said, his family lined up behind him. “I don’t want my grandson or my granddaughters going back in 15 years and so how we leave makes a big difference.”

Beau arrived in Iraq the following year, and spent the next several months serving as a Jag officer at Camp Victory, just outside of the Baghdad airport, and Joint Base Balad, nearly 40 miles north of Baghdad. Though he returned home safely in September 2009, he woke up one day a few months later with an inexplicable headache, numbness in his limbs and paralysis on one side of his body. Beau had suffered a mild stroke. His health deteriorated, and he was diagnosed with brain cancer. Less than two years later, he died at the age of 46.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and FBI Director James B. Comey listened as prosecutors did a mock run through the government's case, a preview of how they would present their evidence to Petraeus' lawyers in order, they hoped, to force a guilty plea.
