The government program meant to place unaccompanied children taken from the U.S.-Mexico border into the care of a parent or sponsor admitted last month it lost nearly 1,500 of them. Senate testimony that was released last month but came to light more recently details how the Office of Refugee Resettlement ― part of the Department of Health and Human Services ― “was unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts of 1,475 [children].” That was according to Steve Wagner, acting assistant secretary with the Administration for Children and Families. The ORR was tasked between October and December 2017 with checking on the welfare of the more than 7,000 children supposedly placed into the homes of a sponsor or guardian. Along with the nearly 1,500 missing children, an additional 28 ran away and 52 were living with someone other than their initial sponsor, according to the testimony.

George W. Bush’s CIA chief Michael Hayden dismissed Donald Trump’s “spygate” narrative regarding the Russian collusion investigation Sunday, accusing the president of grasping at anything to undermine the probe. The investigation activity described so far is “stunningly normal,” Hayden said on ABC’s “This Week.” From “everything I know, everyone has handled this just about the way it should have been handled,” he added. The president is “simply trying to delegitimize the Mueller investigation … and he’s willing to throw almost anything against the wall” to do that, Hayden said.

In the past year, his government has massacred civilians in Yemen, kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon and spent $450 million of unknown provenance on a painting while rounding up hundreds of people for alleged corruption.
