"Friends Forever": Boy, 4, Reunites With WWII Veteran, 90

They make an unlikely pair, but World War II veteran Erling Kindem, 90, and Emmett Rychner, 4, are fast friends — and they celebrated a joyous reunion on Sunday, NBC affiliate KARE reported. They became friends as neighbors in suburban Minneapolis last year, but sadly parted in September after Kindem and his wife moved to a retirement community, and Emmett and his parents moved to a new house. But the duo were reunited on Sunday for Kindem's 90th birthday, and sealed their friendship with a special gift. Read »

Report: Clinton Used Personal Email at State Dept.

The U.S. State Department said Monday that Hillary Clinton had recently provided the agency with emails from her time as Secretary of State after the New York Times reported the former first lady had only used a personal email address to conduct government business while at the State Department — a possible violation of federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. The Times reported that Clinton, widely expected to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, never even used a State Department email address during her four years there. Further, aides did not act to preserve her emails on government servers as required by federal law, the Times reported. Read »

Netanyahu: Nuke Deal "Paves Iran's Path to the Bomb"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu argued in a fiery speech before Congress Tuesday that a potential nuclear deal being negotiated by the United States "paves Iran's path to the bomb." Netanyahu said that world powers must work to stop "stop Iran's march of conquest, subjugation and terror." He also said Iran and ISIS were competing for "the crown of militant Islam," in what he called a "deadly game of thrones." Netanyahu earlier nodded to the controversy over his speech, saying he “regretted” that his being before the legislative body has been seen as political. ”I know that no matter what side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel," Netanyahu said. At least 40 Democrats had said they would skip the speech. House Speaker John Boehner broke diplomatic protocol by unilaterally extending an invitation for the prime minister to speak without consulting with the White House, a move many Democrats called a GOP-led effort to undermine President Obama’s foreign policy.

"Jihadi John" Says 9/11 "Wrong" in New Audio Recording

A new recording purportedly of "Jihadi John" has emerged in which the suspected ISIS executioner recounts how British spies accused him of extremism. In the audio extracts, which could not be verified independently by NBC News, Mohammed Emwazi also described how a British agent asked his thoughts on the 9/11 terror attacks. "He started telling me 'What do you think of 9/11?' and I think I told him 'This is a wrong thing … what happened was wrong," the voice purportedly belonging to Emwazi recounts. The edited recording was released by controversial U.K. rights group, CAGE, which interviewed Emwazi in 2009. CAGE has accused Britain's security services of driving him to extremism — a claim the British government has decried as reprehensible. Read »

Tamir Rice's Mom Wants Cleveland to Apologize for His Death

The mother of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old Cleveland boy shot to death by police last year, said Tuesday that despite the mayor's apology for an "insensitive" description of her son in a legal filing, what she really wanted was condolences for her son's death, NBC News reported. “I have yet not received an apology from police or the city of Cleveland to the killing of my son, and it hurts," Samaria Rice said in a news conference. Tamir's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Cleveland Police Department, and lawyers for the city on Friday responded in court filings that Tamir's injuries were caused by him failing to "exercise due care." Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson apologized on Monday for what he called "very insensitive" language" used in the response. Read »
