On Location Video: What the Front-Line Fight Against the Islamic State Looks Like

An unlikely alliance - Kurdish forces team up with the Iraqi Army because of the threat from ISIS

Great video from globalpost on the front lines in Iraq
 — As the world tries to cobble together a coalition of the willing to fight the Islamic State (IS), there's already an unlikely alliance of front-line forces working to hold back the violent extremists.

Kurdish forces now share a significant percentage of their autonomous region's border with IS, since the brutal terror group overtook broad areas of Iraq in the last several months.

The IS threat has created some unlikely alliances. Kurdish forces are teaming up with the Iraqi army to retake areas to which they each lay claim. Even more unusual, given the two countries' antagonistic history, Iranian troops are providing ground support to Iraq from the south, while the US — usually at odds with Iran — is providing fighter jets to bomb IS positions from above.

This is the very front line in the battle against ISIS

Kentucky Firefighter Dies After Ice Bucket Challenge Accident


LOUISVILLE KY. - A Kentucky firefighter who was severely injured a month ago while helping college students take part in an "ice-bucket" fundraiser died on Saturday from his injuries, authorities said.

Captain Tony Grider, 41, of Campbellsville was hurt along with three other firefighters when an aerial ladder got too close to a power line as their department doused a university band with water.

Kyle Smith, the chief of Campbellsville Fire and Rescue, said Grider died at noon at University of Louisville hospital.

"His family would like to sincerely thank all of those who have been there for them following this tragic accident," Smith said in a statement.

Grider and his three colleagues were injured on Aug. 21 when they were attempting to help students at Campbellsville University participate in the ice bucket challenge to raise funds to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Grider and another firefighter, 22-year-old Simon Quinn, sustained electrocution injuries in the initial incident. Two other firefighters suffered lesser injuries coming to their aid, officials said

American and Canadian fighter jets intercepted eight Russian planes flying in international airspace west of Alaska this week, NBC News reported.

While the encounter was without confrontation, the number and type of Russian planes intercepted was unique, a senior defense official told NBC News on Friday.

Two American fighter jets intercepted six Russian planes, including two fighter jets, over the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on Wednesday, while Canadian fighter jets intercepted two Russian Bear long-range bombers on Thursday over the ADIZ, the official said.

 The official said that the U.S. hasn't seen these types of planes in ADIZ space since Cold War days.

Video Shows Man Breaching Security Perimeter, Running to White House

Here is the video

Part of the White House was evacuated after someone jumped the fence at the executive mansion.

A Secret Service agent at the scene says that much of the West Wing of the White House was evacuated during the incident Friday evening.

Witnesses who were there Friday evening to cover the president's signing of a bill say they saw a man jump the fence to the White House and run close to the North Portico.

The person ran across the White House grounds shortly after President Barack Obama and his daughters left aboard a helicopter for the presidential retreat in Maryland, Camp David.

Members of the media were escorted out of the press briefing room and taken away from the premises.

As of 8 p.m. the evacuation was lifted as the individual was apprehended, according to a tweet from CBS affiliate WNEW.



TMZ Reporter Presses NFL Commissioner Goodell: 'We The Got Ray Rice Video With One Phone Call, You Guys Have a Whole Legal Department'

Great question from a TMZ reporter at today's NFL press conference. He asks Goodell why he didn't go to the casino himself. Basically saying, if Commissioner Goodell wanted to see the Ray Rice video, he could have and everybody knows it.

At a press conference in which he apologized for his handling of the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was pressed by a TMZ reporter on why the league was not more curious to see the Ray Rice assault video.

"Why didn't you have the curiosity to go to the casino yourself?" Goodell was asked.

Goodell said Rice was suspended based on the first video of him dragging his then-fiance out of an elevator. He reiterated that the league wants to review how it can improve its investigations of such incidents.

Goodell argued that the league has always worked with law enforcement and has been cautious not to interfere with criminal investigations.

"I would have loved to have seen that tape," he said (Fox News)

Republican Congressman: It's the 'Islamic' State, Not 'Methodist State or the Episcopalian State or the Baptist State'

"When Christians are told to convert to Islam or die, that would seem to fly in the face of the president's insistence that the Islamic State is not the Islamic"

Ditto that congressman Chabot of Ohio

Rep. Steve Chabot  said he's among the Americans who were "shocked" to hear President Barack Obama tell the nation that the Islamic State is not Islamic.

"You know, they don't call themselves the Methodist State or the Episcopalian State or the Baptist State. They're the Islamic State, and I think for good reason," Chabot told Secretary of State John Kerry at a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
