17 Airmen responsible for warheads stripped of job

The United States has the second largest stash of nuclear warheads in the world after Russia. Some  of them are kept at Minot, Air Force base.  One warhead is capable of killing about 100,000 people or more.

But even more worrying, this week 17 airmen guarding the nuclear launch controls at the base scored a "D" for performance, and were stripped of their duties.

Neighbors say they raised flags about Castro

The Cleveland police are facing serious questions about their handling of the missing three women held captive for nearly a decade. We now know police removed Michelle Knight's name from the FBI's missing persons' database – just 15 months after her disappearance.

But authorities say they were just following protocol.  If they can't reach the family, they say the entry is canceled. But this is not the only instance where the community claims the police dropped the ball.

Tom Foreman is OutFront with the growing tensions between police and the community.

White House goes on defense on Benghazi talking points

The President's press secretary, under fire over the September 11th Benghazi attack. The pre-scheduled press briefing was delayed twice. Carney finally arrived at the podium three hours later than first planned.

There was tension in the room when White House Press Secretary Jay Carney walked in.

Why? Because a lot was at stake.

Today, we formally learned the White House and the State Department were heavily involved in the editing of the talking points used by the administration following the terror attacks in Benghazi – something they have previously denied.

Obama administration e-mails raise new questions on Benghazi

In fact, today Carney doubled down, saying the White House made one edit, and one edit only: changing the word consulate, to the word diplomatic post.

There were twelve rounds of edits. Among the things taken out of the first draft - a line saying: "Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qaeda participated in the attack."

OutFront tonight: Nick Burns is a former under-secretary of state for political affairs and Reihan Salam, CNN Contributor, writer for the National Review.
