WATCH: Israel’s Netanyahu Delivers Congressional Address

During his address to Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the controversy over the speech, saying he “regretted” that his being before the legislative body has been seen as political. ”I know that no matter what side of the aisle you sit, you stand with Israel," Netanyahu said. At least 40 Democrats are skipping the speech, including Vice President Biden, who would have been seated behind Netanyahu. House Speaker John Boehner broke diplomatic protocol by unilaterally extending an invitation for the prime minister to speak without consulting with the White House, a move many Democrats called a GOP-led effort to undermine President Obama’s foreign policy. Boehner has countered that Congress wants to hear from its trusted ally Israel before the framework for the possible nuclear deal with Iran is due later this month. Read »

Report: Clinton Used Personal Email at State Dept.

The U.S. State Department said Monday that Hillary Clinton had recently provided the agency with emails from her time as Secretary of State after the New York Times reported the former first lady had only used a personal email address to conduct government business while at the State Department — a possible violation of federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. The Times reported that Clinton, widely expected to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, never even used a State Department email address during her four years there. Further, aides did not act to preserve her emails on government servers as required by federal law, the Times reported. Read »

"Jihadi John" Says 9/11 "Wrong" in New Audio Recording

A new recording purportedly of "Jihadi John" has emerged in which the suspected ISIS executioner recounts how British spies accused him of extremism. In the audio extracts, which could not be verified independently by NBC News, Mohammed Emwazi also described how a British agent asked his thoughts on the 9/11 terror attacks. "He started telling me 'What do you think of 9/11?' and I think I told him 'This is a wrong thing … what happened was wrong," the voice purportedly belonging to Emwazi recounts. The edited recording was released by controversial U.K. rights group, CAGE, which interviewed Emwazi in 2009. CAGE has accused Britain's security services of driving him to extremism — a claim the British government has decried as reprehensible. Read »

Obama: Iran Must Halt Nuclear Program for 10 Years

U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday that Iran should commit to a verifiable freeze of at least 10 years on its nuclear activity for a landmark atomic deal to be reached, but that the odds were still against sealing a final agreement, NBC News reported. In an interview with Reuters at the White House, Obama said that a rift over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned speech to Congress opposing the Iran deal on Tuesday was a distraction that would not be "permanently destructive" to U.S.-Israeli ties. But he said there was a "substantial disagreement" between his administration and the Israeli government over how to achieve their shared goal of preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
