ISIS Speaks Out on San Bernardino Shooting

Dec 5, 2015 7:00 AM EST

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria's official radio station has aired a statement saying the mass shooting in California was carried out by two "supporters" of the extremist group.

While praising the attack, the group stopped short of claiming responsibility for it. The Al-Bayan report Saturday echoed a claim carried Friday by the ISIS-affiliated Aamaq news agency.

The radio report did not refer to Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik as actual members of ISIS. Militants affiliated with ISIS who carry out attacks are commonly referred to in the group's propaganda as "lions," ''fighters" or "mujahedeen."

Former U.S. national security adviser Sandy Berger dies

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Samuel "Sandy" Berger, a U.S. national security adviser to President Bill Clinton whose reputation was later marred by his theft of classified documents after leaving office, died early on Wednesday.

Berger, who was 70, had been suffering from cancer, according to a statement from Albright Stonebridge Group, the consulting firm where he worked.

"Sandy was a consummate national security adviser because he embraced our common humanity and advanced our national interests," Clinton said in a statement.

"He was a terrific public servant and a world class human being. We will miss him," he said.

Frustrated Gunman Can’t Believe How Far He Has To Drive To Find Nearest Planned Parenthood Clinic


Frustrated Gunman Can’t Believe How Far He Has To Drive To Find Nearest Planned Parenthood Clinic

NEWS IN BRIEF November 30, 2015
VOL 51 ISSUE 48 · News · Violence · Abortion

AMARILLO, TX—Expressing frustration with the lack of convenient locations in his area, deranged gunman and anti-abortion fanatic Jared Broussard reported Monday that he could not believe how far he would have to drive to find the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic. “You have to be kidding me; I figured I’d need to go 10, maybe 15 miles, tops, but the closest one is almost 250 miles away,” said a visibly exasperated Broussard, adding that he would have to scrap his plans for the entire day and leave right now if he wanted to reach the health care provider before it closed this evening. “God, the nearest one isn’t even in this state. It’s actually faster for me to drive across the border to Santa Fe, and even then it’s still a four-hour trip. That barely leaves me enough time to buy ammo.” Broussard added that, given the length of the drive, he was thankful that he would likely not have to make a round trip.

The Latest: Lynch: Clinic shooting crime against women

NOV. 28, 2015 9:14 PM EST

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is calling the shootings in Colorado Springs a crime against women receiving health care services at Planned Parenthood.

In a statement Saturday night, Lynch calls the attack not only a crime against the local community but a crime against law enforcement seeking to protect and to serve, against other innocent people, and against the rule of law as well as all Americans' right to safety and security.

The nation's top law enforcement officer says federal officials stand ready to offer any and all assistance to the district attorney and state and local law enforcement in Colorado as they move forward with their investigation.
