Golden Retriever falls through ice, is rescued by firefighters.

Firefighters took an icy plunge to save a Massachusetts dog on Sunday afternoon.

A woman's five-year-old Golden Retriever, Crosby, fell through the icy Charles River during a walk, Boston's WCVB.com reports.

The Wellesley Police Department stated on their website that the dog was trapped by ice nearly 50 yards offshore.

Firefighter Dave Papazian donned a cold water survival suit to break through the ice and swim to the dog, with the assistance of Fire Lieutenant Paul Delaney. Other officers and firefighters pulled the team back in and dried off the dog.

POPE FRANCIS: I'm Not A Marxist

Pope Francis has responded to critics who have called him a "Marxist" in a new interview with an Italian newspaper, saying Marxist ideology "is wrong" while simultaneously noting that much of what he wrote in his powerful critique of capitalism is part of the fabric of the Catholic church.

“Marxist ideology is wrong. But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people, so I don’t feel offended," Francis told La Stampa. "There is nothing in the Exhortation that cannot be found in the social Doctrine of the Church.”

Francis' answer was in response to accusations from U.S. critics on the right, including Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. "This is just pure Marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope," Limbaugh said on his radio show in November.

In his first written text of his papacy, called the Apostolic Exhortation, the pope addressed many issues, but his denouncement of our current financial system got most of the attention.

Fleet of Planes from $486 Million Program for Afghan Security Forces Scheduled to Be Destroyed

While the U.S. military effort in Afghanistan winds down the price tag for waste in the funding for the Afghan Security Forces continues to rise.

The most recent evidence of mismanagement emerged during Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko’s recent visit when he found 16 C27A aircraft waiting to be destroyed at the Kabul International Airport.

Part of a 486 million dollar U.S. program to provide refurbished aircraft for Afghan Security Forces, these planes are the latest in a long line of U.S.-funded equipment that never made it into the hands of Afghan forces before landing in line for disposal.

“I saw these planes sitting dormant on the airfield and knew something was wrong and answers were needed,” Sopko said in a statement.
