A brief military report said troops rescued Zulkipli Bin Ali, Mohammad Ridzuan Bin Ismail and Fandy Bin Bakran late Sunday in southern Sulu province. Two other Malaysian crewmen from the same group, who were kidnapped by Abu Sayyaf militants in July off Malaysia's Sabah state near the southern Philippines, were rescued last week when they were abandoned by their captors as a naval patrol closed in.
American military commanders are conducting multiple investigations into a series of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria over the past two weeks that allegedly caused dozens – if not hundreds – of civilian casualties. The rash of new reports of civilian deaths in the U.S.-led air war on the Islamic State comes at a time of intensifying air strikes as the battle for Mosul rages, and U.S.-backed militias move closer to Raqqa to assault the Islamic State’s de facto capital. The largest of the strikes occurred on March 17 in Mosul, Iraq, where Iraqi forces battling ISIS militants in the densely-packed western half of the city called in a strike on what they had identified as an ISIS position.
The year 2017 has already seen the launch of LG's high-end flagship, the G6, the Samsung Galaxy S8 launches Wednesday and the iPhone 8 is expected to launch in the fall. Two other flagships, equally worthy of attention, are expected launch later in the year — Samsung’s foldable device, the Samsung Galaxy X, and Google’s Pixel successor, the Pixel 2. While Google confirmed March 3 that a Pixel 2 device is in the works, the existence of a Samsung Galaxy X is largely supported by rumors and Samsung’s recent patents.
American politics is deep into the theater of the absurd—but unfortunately, it is a deadly absurdity, like being in a horror funhouse where the creatures leaping out at you have real knives and chainsaws. Americans now have to face at least the possibility, a tangible one, that the election itself was subverted by a hostile foreign power in league with the winning presidential campaign, with implications all the way down the ballot. From the day after the 9/11 catastrophe, I threw myself into creating a set of safety nets for the constitutional system, ensuring that the United States would have a rapid, orderly, and legitimate set of ways to ensure the continuity of government in the event of a terror attack that could decapitate one or more of its three branches.

Colorado's state legislature is considering an unusual plan to defend the state's marijuana industry from a federal crackdown under the Trump administration. The bill would allow growers and sellers to reclassify their recreational marijuana as medical “based on a business need due to a change in local, state, or federal law or enforcement policy.” The strategy is meant to keep marijuana businesses afloat if the federal government comes after them, even if it means the state losing hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes. The bill represents a shift in how states might respond to what marijuana advocates say are an over-simplification of cannabis policy by the Trump administration.
