WASHINGTON -- John Kerry was making his "beyond a reasonable doubt" case against Syria's Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday when he gave lawmakers a bit of faulty intelligence. "Just today, before coming in here, I read an email to me about a general, the minister of defense, former minister or assistant minister, I forget which, who has just defected and is now in Turkey," the secretary of state testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "And there are other defections that we are hearing about because of the potential that we might take action."
WASHINGTON — Over the past 12 years, John Beale was often away from his job as a high-level staffer at the Environmental Protection Agency. He cultivated an air of mystery and explained his lengthy absences by telling his bosses that he was doing top-secret work, including for the CIA. For years, apparently, no one checked. Now, Beale is charged with allegedly stealing nearly $900,000 from the EPA by receiving pay and bonuses he did not deserve. He faces up to three years in prison.

PIERRE -- Trustees for the South Dakota Retirement System decided Thursday it should be 100 percent funded again. The board voted unanimously to pay off $635 million of unfunded long-term obligations. That means the money won't be used instead for benefit improvements in the future. "Obviously this is an unprecedented action by the board," SDRS administrator Rob Wylie said.

On Aug. 27, the late summer heat of Washington, D.C., was spit-roasting locals and tourists alike up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. Inside the U.S. District Courthouse, a half-block off the main thoroughfare and just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol, however, all anyone from Mexico to Canada could talk about was COOL, the American law that requires U.S. food sellers to reveal -- label -- the country of origin of the meat they sell.

WASHINGTON -- Undoubtedly you've heard that American credibility is on the line, thanks to President Obama's vacillation on what to do about Syria. To bomb or not to bomb, that is always the question. Obama, indeed, seems to be stricken with indecision. Two years ago, he said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must go. Last year, he drew the now-infamous red line on chemical weapons use.
