CBS News has confirmed that the White House has identified three leakers of classified information who are expected to be fired. Mike Baker, a former CIA covert operations officer, joined CBSN to discuss the severity of the leaks and what could happen to the leakers.
It was a real-life battle of the superheroes at a comic fest over the weekend - when Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno got into a brawl with “Flash Gordon” star Sam Jones, and fans had to jump in and break them up. “I don’t know if I was the real superhero, because if there was a clash of the Titans, I would have got squashed,” said Darryn Clements, who stepped in to help separate the musclebound actors at London’s ComicCon on Saturday, according to the Sun.
