Chris Christie picks a fight with Rand Paul: Says libertarian views are "dangerous"

Chris Christie picks another fight.

New Jersey's tough-talking governor, Chris Christie, had some choice words for fellow Republican, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

Speaking at a forum Thursday, he suggested the libertarian's views on the government's surveillance program are "dangerous."

Christie: NSA critics should talk to 9/11 families

Christie also said Paul should hear first hand from the families affected by 9/11:

"These esoteric, intellectual debates – I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and orphans and have that conversation," Christie said. "And they won't. That's a lot tougher conversation to have."

After that jab, Rand Paul hit back, tweeting this morning:

Notice the spelling of Christie's last name. Perhaps suggesting Christie is a party switcher like Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist who is now an Obama supporter.

But will Christie's jab at a fellow Republican help him should he run in 2016?

Authorities still unclear on widow of Boston bomber's involvement

New details are emerging about Katherine Russell, the widow of Boston marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a police shootout on April 19th.

The American-born 24-year-old has not been arrested, but the FBI hasn't ruled out the possibility that she was a co-conspirator in the Boston marathon bombing or, as one law enforcement source put it, "an abused enabler."

Ariel Castro: "My sexual problem has really taken a toll"

Ariel Castro is headed to prison for life plus one thousand years in a deal that took the death penalty off the table.

He pleaded guilty to 937 counts, Involving rape, kidnapping and murder.

After the agreement was reached a lawyer for the victims issued a statement saying:

"Amanda, Gina, and Michelle are relieved by today's plea.  They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future."

At another moment in the hearing, which lasted well over an hour, the judge asked Castro how good his English is.

Castro replied that he is good at spelling and reading but his comprehension is bad because "my addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind."

Can being a victim of sexual violence as a child and being addicted to porn explain what Castro did to those women for 10 years?
