Hillary Clinton Won The First Presidential Debate, Polling Finds. Pete Souza: Capturing unguarded moments with Obama. As a staff photographer, for one and a half terms, his candid shots of "Dutch" and Nancy loosened the stiff collar of office, and brought humanity and intimacy to the administration.

Pete Souza: Capturing unguarded moments with Obama

When George H.W. Bush took over, Souza returned to freelancing. Years later he began covering a young senator from Illinois, who would one day assume the highest office in the land. Since that day in January 2009, Souza has barely left President Obama's side. He's toured the world capturing official engagements and private moments. "I don't think there's really anyone else in the White House that has that kind of exposure to him," Souza admits. "From a documentary standpoint, I'm the only person that sees him in all these different roles. " Social media changes the game Whether that's photographing the beloved Bo aboard Air Force One or Jacob Philadelphia, a young African American comparing his hair to Obama's, Souza has been there. And the public have never been far behind. Artificial Mexico Cactus - Commercial Silk Int'l. Artificial Hairbrush Cactus Plants - Commercial Silk Int'l.

Unaccompanied minors swelling ranks of American gangs, say experts. A surge of unaccompanied children coming across the southern border could be swelling the ranks of one of America’s most dangerous gangs, either as fresh recruits or hardened sleepers, according to federal authorities.

Unaccompanied minors swelling ranks of American gangs, say experts

Some 227,149 unaccompanied children have been apprehended at the border over the last six years, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. They remain in federal custody until a sponsor can be located, at which time they are often sent to communities where they are ripe for recruitment by Latin gangs such as the infamous MS-13. “Our safety standards have increased,” Andrea Helling, spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, told

Federal law requires the Department of Homeland Security transfer children under 18 to the custody of Helling’s agency until they are released to an appropriate sponsor, usually a relative, while their immigration cases are adjudicated. “We’re looking at the possibility,” said Lt. Hillary Clinton 'healthy and fit to serve as president,' doctor says. Hillary Clinton’s doctor on Wednesday pronounced her “healthy and fit” to serve as president, making a belated effort at transparency and hoping to contain political damage after the Democratic nominee was too weak to make it through a Sept. 11 memorial service this weekend.

Trump, Clinton rip each other over Iraq War, ISIS at military forum.

Trump, Clinton rip each other over Iraq War, ISIS at military forum

Though Trump and Clinton did not appear onstage together at the USS Intrepid museum in New York, the NBC News forum was a debate in all but name and came fewer than three weeks before the candidates' first debate. Trump's response to a question about whether illegal immigrants who plan to serve in the military can stay in America marked another apparent shift for the Republican nominee, who caused outrage during the GOP primary with his call to deport all illegal immigrants. "I think that when you serve in the armed forces, that's a very special situation, and I could see myself working that out," Trump said. "We need to be careful and vet carefully, but it would be a special circumstance, yes. " Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton declare each other unfit to serve as commander in chief. Seeking to paint themselves as eminently qualified and the other’s judgment as lacking, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton traded barbs Wednesday night over the Iraq War, the Islamic State, U.S. intervention in Libya and other key foreign policy challenges, each telling a hall full of veterans and servicemen and -women that the other isn’t fit to serve as commander in chief.

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton declare each other unfit to serve as commander in chief

At a forum hosted by NBC News and the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, the two White House hopefuls each accused the other of fully supporting the 2003 invasion of Iraq, pointing to how the conflict has destabilized the region and led to the rise of the Islamic State. For her part, Mrs. Clinton once again admitted she’d made a mistake with her vote to authorize the conflict, but quickly turned the tables on her Republican foe and highlighted his own muddy position on the war. That record, she said, also included the 2011 military intervention in Libya, a decision Mrs. Artificial Dessert Yucca Tree - Commercial Silk Int'l. Artificial Desert Cactus - Commercial Silk Int'l.

USA TODAY Sports SAN DIEGO — Colin Kaepernick once again did not stand during the national anthem.

Donald Trump claims sarcasm, but damage on hack comments lingers. But he's finding out that presidents -- and by extension, presidential nominees -- don't get that luxury when the topic is national security. The GOP nominee tried to dampen controversy over his apparent call Wednesday for Russia to either stage an espionage cyber hack to find Clinton's deleted emails or to publish information it had already stolen.

"Of course I'm being sarcastic," Trump said in a Fox News interview that aired the day after his comments at a news conference in Florida sparked a national furor and offered ammunition for Democrats who claim he's not fit to be president. The affair is a lesson for Trump in how every word a potential commander in chief utters is parsed and amplified, and can have significant political and diplomatic consequences.
