Just hours before President Obama was scheduled to deliver a speech before the United Nations in New York, the White House announced that for the first time since the U.S. launched airstrikes targeting the Islamist militant group ISIS in northern Iraq, American warplanes and cruise missiles struck the group’s forces inside Syria. Among the targets of airstrikes that began on Sept. 22 were buildings reportedly occupied by ISIS leaders in the Syrian city of Raqqah, the group’s self-declared capital. Other sites struck included training sites, supply lines and weapons depots. Another Syrian-based group that the administration charged was plotting attacks against the U.S., the Khorasan Group, was also bombed.  Story continues

They came by bus, train, air and cars from across America and the world – and as predicted, the Sept. 21 Peoples Climate March in New York City which drew an estimated 400,000, was indeed the largest climate protest in world history. The protesters, who filled broad boulevards stretching from 94th to 34th streets on Manhattan’s West side, was made up of a diverse crowd of all ages that included veterans of the 1960s civil rights movement, rank and file union members, students – and babies in strollers pushed by their parents.  Story continues
