Cameron promises Britain more freedom from European Union

British Prime Minister David Cameron has allegedly promised a referendum within the next five years that could make Britain independent from the European Union. The EU strives to become the largest integrated economy in the world, with 27 nations as its members, and is governed by open borders and common laws. French Foreign Minister has reportedly stated that Britain’s plan to become independent is “dangerous.” Currently the continent struggles with a crushing debt crisis, and Cameron states he wants “a better deal for Britain.” (Source)

Hillary Clinton defends handling of Benghazi attack

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showed strong support for the Obama administration Wednesday at a Senate committee hearing in regards to last September’s Benghazi attack. During the meeting, Republican Senator Rand Paul of Tennessee said the security before the attack was “inexcusable” and said “had I been president at the time and I found you did not read the cables, I would have relieved you of your post.” Clinton took responsibility for the security failures that allegedly led to the attack. In two weeks Clinton will step down from her post as Secretary of State and will be replaced by Democratic Senator John Kerry. (Source)
