Combining the Security Councils

President Barack Obama announced Tuesday he is combining White House staffs dealing with international and homeland security, predicting the change will make Americans safer. The Associated Press is reporting, Obama also is creating a new office intended to communicate more effectively with other countries about U.S. security policy. The Homeland Security Council, created after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, will be kept as a venue for discussing issues concerning domestic security, including terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, natural disasters and pandemic influenza. Its staff will be integrated into the National Security Council.

Detainee Photos

Some predicted it would happen and it did. President Barack Obama says the detainee abuse photos he wants to prevent from being released are "not really sensational", but at the same time they could put U.S. troops at risk. So he's directed White House lawyers to fight the court-ordered release of the photos. He says he won't stand for abuse of prisoners. Just recently, White House said it would release the photos, citing little chance of defeating an ACLU challenge to have them released.
