Israeli Ambassador: No longer denying the Holocaust is a pretty low bar

Iran's new president Hassan Rouhani is taking New York by storm.

U.S. to bolster missile defense system in response to North Korea's saber rattling

On the same day North Korea fired a short-range missile in to the sea of Japan, defense secretary Chuck Hagel announces the U.S. is boosting its missile defense system.

"The United States has missile defense systems in place to protect us from limited ICBM attacks but North Korea in particular has recently made advance in its capabilities and has engaged in a series of irresponsible and reckless provocations," Hagel said.
