Falcon View heads to Haiti

The U.S. military is sending significant resources to Haiti to help out in the aftermath of the earthquake. Among those re sources is Air Force Intelligence gear to help with mapping.

Iranian Officials Freed

The U.S. military detained several Iranian officials in Iraq two years ago accusing them of arming Shi-ite Muslim militias. Their arrest raised the level of tension between Washington and Tehran, already simmering because of back and forth over nuclear weapons to new heights. Iranian State TV claims three of the men were diplomats detained in a 2007 U.S. raid in Iraq's northern city of Arbil, while the rest were kidnapped in other areas. The prisoners were turned over to Iraqi government officials and then transfered to Iranian custody.
