The Real Clinton Email Scandal: Our Ridiculous Classification Rules

Hillary ClintonHillary Clinton’s use of a personal email account for official State Department business was a mistake, but the revelation that Clinton’s emails contain upwards of 305 messages with potentially “classified” information is far less scandalous than the headlines make it appear. The most troubling part of this story involves the rules governing official secrets, not Clinton’s conduct as Secretary of State.

As a former Department of Justice official who regularly dealt with classified information, I am glad a team of officials from the FBI, the intelligence community and other agencies is not currently reviewing every email I sent and received while I worked in government. If they did, they would likely find arguably classified information that was transmitted over unclassified networks—and the same thing is undoubtedly true for other senior officials at the White House, the State Department and other top national security agencies.

State inquiries into Planned Parenthood turn up no evidence of wrongdoing

Planned ParenthoodPlanned Parenthood appears to be weathering scrutiny by state legislatures that began in the wake of undercover “sting” videos by anti-abortion activists, as investigations in states across the country have repeatedly turned up no evidence of wrongdoing.

Some state officials undertook the investigations even though Planned Parenthood affiliates in their state don’t perform abortions. Others started investigations or defunded the organization even though fetal tissue donation was against the law in their jurisdiction.

Mike Huckabee blunders his way through Israel press conference

Mike Huckabee in IsraelRepublican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee delivered a confused and garbled press conference in Jerusalem during a brief campaign stop, which included a controversial fundraising visit to a settlement in the occupied Palestinian territories.

At times taking positions to the right of Israel’s government, the former governor of Arkansas at one stage described Russia as the “Soviet Union” – when referring to its plans to supply Iran with S-300 anti-aircraft missiles – before correcting himself.

Cancer risk 'even from light drinking'

Cancer risk from even light drinkingEven light and moderate drinking - up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men - could increase the risk of cancer, say researchers.

The work in the British Medical Journal looked at two large US studies involving more than 100,000 adults.  The clearest link was for breast cancer.

Experts say the findings reinforce the health message that people should limit how much they drink and have some alcohol-free days.

A decade after Katrina, are America's flood estimates dangerously wrong?

Ten years after KatrinaIn the Mississippi River town of Hannibal, Missouri, time apparently flies.

In 2013, Hannibal had a 50-year flood, a high-water event only expected once every 50 years. In 2014, it had another 50-year flood. Somehow, the river has reached its 10-year flood stage in Hannibal—which should happen about once a decade—in seven of the last eight years. And if the years seem to be passing with unusual speed, so do the centuries. Hannibal had a 200-year flood in 2008, considerably less than 200 years after an even larger deluge in 1993.

Evidence is mounting that Hannibal’s statistical anomalies have been caused not by glitches in the space-time continuum, but by a combination of floods getting worse and government estimates of flood risks being wrong.
