Bloomberg cancels NYC marathon amid outcry

After days of standing his ground - despite anger, frustration and resentment - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg late Friday canceled Sunday's Marathon.

NY Marathon 'was going to be divisive,' says deputy mayor of cancellation

"We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event – even one as meaningful as this – to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track," said Bloomberg.

The controversy - holding a marathon, with all the generators, food, water and police that requires – as New Yorkers still reeling from Sandy. Many here have lost their homes, hundreds of thousands who are still without power.

CIA's role in Libya: Did a CIA covert mission in Libya compromise the safety of four Americans?

A new report from the Wall Street Journal says the security situation in Libya on the night of September 11th was in the hands of the CIA, who were in Benghazi operating under diplomatic cover.

According to the report, two of the four men who died, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty were former navy seals who actually worked for the CIA. The new details help explain why the American public may have received mixed messages from the administration in the days after the attack.

Adam Entous is the WSJ reporter who broke the story and Bob Baer is a former CIA operative.
