U.S. House formally condemns Obama for Guantanamo prisoner swap

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 09/10/2014 - 07:40

A billboard calling for the release of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl near Spokane WashingtonHouse of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to condemn President Barack Obama for failing to give Congress a 30-day notice before exchanging prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl for five members of the Taliban who were being held at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The House voted 249 to 163, with 22 Democrats joining the Republican majority in favor of the resolution. The measure has no legal clout, but it castigates Obama a day before he is due to address the American public to seek support for military action against Islamic State in Iraq and, possibly, Syria. The House debated the measure as Obama met at the White House with congressional leaders, including Republican House Speaker John Boehner, to discuss his plans.

Respite possible for Hawaii community as lava flow shifts course

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 09/10/2014 - 07:29
By Malia Mattoch McManus HONOLULU (Reuters) - A volcanic lava flow that threatens a subdivision on Hawaii's Big Island has shifted slightly, potentially sparing some homes but increasing the number of residents who may be "lava-locked" if the flow overtakes a highway, a civil defense official said on Tuesday. The lava flow from the continuously erupting Kilauea volcano is moving through forested terrain toward the Kaohe Homesteads subdivision, and after a recent tack northward could reach nearby Highway 130 within 16 to 18 days, according to Hawaiian Volcano Observatory projections.
