Official: FBI tracking radicalized Americans back from Syria

Airstrikes Tuesday took place in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, a U.S. official told CNN. It's the first strikes against the terror group inside the country since President Barack Obama's announcement this month that he was prepared to expand the American efforts beyond targets in Iraq.

U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time

The airstrikes come as ISIS is calling on lone wolves to kill civilians in coalition countries on their own soil, with administration officials warning that a number of Americans who went overseas to fight with terrorist groups are back in the United States.

Alaska reporter quits live on TV: 'F*** it, I quit'

Ever have one of those imaginary conversations in your head about what you'd say to your boss if you ever quit?

Well, a TV reporter didn't just say it to her boss, she said it to a live audience, dropping the F-word, and by that, we don't mean "fired."

CNN's Jeanne Moos has the story of a reporter who went out with a bang to help legalize the bong.

Janay Rice's friends: She's anxious to get her life back

The Baltimore Ravens hit back at damning allegations, insisting there was no cover-up of the Ray Rice domestic assault case.

During a press conference Monday, team owner Steve Bisciotti said ESPN's damning report  - that the team knew about the video tape of Ray Rice knocking out his now-wife, just hours after the attack - is nothing but lies and an attempt to get Rice reinstated by those close to him.

But there was something else that caught CNN's Erin Burnett's attention. Bisciotti said it's a bad idea to instate a zero tolerance policy when it comes to domestic violence:

"You can bet there are some opportunistic people out there that are going to look at this zero tolerance place we're getting to, and they're going to say this is really easy to threaten and get some money because the minute I threaten he gets cut," Bisciotti said.

Is the Raven's owner forgetting who the victim is here?

CNN is learning more about the victim in that attack - Janay Rice - from those who know her best.

Source: Ravens knew extent of Rice incident hours after punch

A source within the Baltimore Ravens organization tells CNN that a Ravens official knew that former running back Ray Rice knocked out his now-wife and knew there was video evidence of it just hours after the incident occurred.

This latest information comes as embattled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell broke his silence Friday to address the domestic abuse cases that have consumed his league over the past 10 days.

Speaking at a Manhattan news conference amid calls for his resignation, Goodell announced a sweeping policy to counter domestic abuse and sexual assault, mandating all players and staff on the league's 32 teams undergo education and training about how to prevent abuse.

All the uproar, started with the elevator surveillance video of Rice abusing his now-wife. A crime that initially cost rice just two games. Goodell apologized for failing his fans.

"I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter and I'm sorry for that," Goodell said. "I'm not satisfied with the way we handled it from the get-go. I made a mistake. I'm not satisfied with the process we went through. I'm not satisfied with the conclusion."
