The Bergdahl Backlash
If President Obama was hoping for a bounce from Saturday's surprise Rose Garden announcement about the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, he didn't get it. Instead, he is facing a growing backlash -- from the troops, from members of Congress and even from the media.

Shinseki Resigns. Now What?
VA Secretary Eric Shinseki submitted his resignation this morning. After meeting with Shinseki at the White House, President Obama told reporters, "With considerable regret, I accepted. We don't have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem."

Radical Islam's War On Christian Women
Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, a married 27 year-old woman, was recently sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery by a Sudanese court. How can a married woman be guilty of adultery? Sudan, which is governed by radical Islamic or Sharia law, refuses to recognize Meriam's marriage to her Christian husband, Daniel Wani, an American citizen.
