The spread of private media has been one of the only clear successes in Afghanistan since the U.S.-led international coalition invaded in 2001 and toppled a Taliban government.

    The civilian employee who reported three shots fired at the San Diego Naval Medical Center on Tuesday genuinely thought that's what she had heard, officials said. The Navy on Wednesday said it's doing a "hot wash" -- military parlance for looking at lessons learned -- after the incident, which sparked a massive "Code White" active-shooter lockdown throughout Tuesday morning until it was determined to be a false alarm.

    The United States is considering "decisive" military action against Islamic State fighters entrenched in Libya, but delivering a fatal blow to the militant group will likely require more than airstrikes, experts say. And many questions remain to be answered about any U.S. involvement in a country that has been embroiled in factional fighting since U.S.-led airstrikes four years ago helped to topple the regime of Moammar Gadhafi, who was cap... more
