Diplomatic "Spat": White House on Netanyahu Comments

The White House is still attempting to be diplomatic in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned speech to the U.S. Congress about Iran in March on invitation from House Speaker John Boehner. On Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough responded to an article in Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, from Friday that quoted a senior U.S. official as saying "[Netanyahu] spat in our face publicly" and "that there will be a price" for it.

Wild Start to GOP Primary Season at "Freedom Summit"

Iowa congressman Steve King has declared that the 2016 Republican primary will be the "greatest show in America," and with at least 15 people vying to be the Republican presidential candidate, he might be right. There's still a year left before anyone will vote, but the GOP contest has already turned into an intriguing mix of ambition, ego and ideology. Some of the biggest names in conservatism gave speeches at the nine-hour "Iowa Freedom Summit" on Saturday, including likely presidential candidates Texas Gov. Rick Perry, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. They blasted President Obama's executive action on immigration and said they'd work to repeal Obamacare. Read »
