Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., starred in a viral exchange this week after he repeatedly stumped one of President Trump’s judicial nominees with basic questions about the law. “I enthusiastically supported President Trump for president, and I still do. In the past year, I have supported nearly every one of President Trump’s picks, but I don’t blindly support them,” Kennedy said in a Friday statement to Yahoo News when asked whether he would support Peterson’s nomination for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The report — released by Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller on Friday — condemned hazing within the Greek community at Penn State as “rampant and pervasive,” and accused Penn State of demonstrating apathy to drinking culture and turning a blind eye to problems within fraternities. “If it takes eliminating these dens of depravity that won’t reform their ways, then do it,” Parks Miller said at a press conference.

The U.S. Marine Corps is arguably the best amphibious-warfare force in the world. The issue is that relentless overseas commitments have strained marine resources so badly that it can’t conduct the other training that it needs to maintain its combat edge. A review of readiness data from 2014 to 2016 revealed that “Marine Corps units were unable to fully accomplish training for other amphibious operations priorities,” according to the GAO report.
Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

An estimated 40,000 people traveled from around the world to take up arms for the Islamic State group as it occupied territory in Syria and Iraq and declared a caliphate in 2014. How many have gone elsewhere to fight?" said Seth Jones, director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at the Rand Corporation.

Barack Obama has long made it clear that he loves his post-presidency leather jacket. The former president was popping by a branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington in one of his recent visits to local kids, chatting with about 50 students there and dropping off gifts for them as well, the Washington Post reports. Obama may not be in the Oval Office any longer, but he’s been keeping busy: besides launching the Obama Foundation, reporting for jury duty, and making appearances like this one, he also contributed his voice to the recently successful Doug Jones campaign for Senate.

The Pentagon is voicing growing alarm that the risky flying of Russian pilots in Syria could lead to a mishap – or even the nightmare scenario of a US jet shooting down a Russian warplane. Defense officials this week highlighted several recent close calls with Russian planes, including one Wednesday, when a pair of US F-22s intercepted two Russian jets over a part of Syria in which the Pentagon says they are not meant to be operating. The uptick in incidents comes as remaining operations by the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group in Syria have shrunk down to an area of only about 15 square miles (39 square kilometers) around Albu Kamal in eastern Syria, by the Iraq border.
