Kathleen Sebelius: "I apologize" for Obamacare website

A stunning admission from Vice President Joe Biden today. Even the White House couldn't log on to the Obamacare website.

"The president tried to get online and my daughter tried to get online. I did not, because it was clear that I wasn't getting online," Biden told HLN.

Yet, on the plus side, the president did step up and take responsibility for the website fiasco.
Well, for some of it at least.

"There's no denying it, right now the website is too slow, too many people have gotten stuck, and I am not happy about it, and neither are a lot of Americans who need healthcare, and they're trying to figure out how they can sign up as quickly as possible. So there's no excuse for it and I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP," Pres. Barack Obama said.

But he left out one important point. He's taking responsibility for fixing it.
Not for breaking it.

He left that task to his Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, who faced a three and a half hour public grilling on capitol hill.

NYPD's Ray Kelly booed off stage over stop-and-frisk practices

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly was supposed to speak at Brown University yesterday but instead he was heckled.

After almost 30 minutes of screaming, school officials canceled the speech. The students were protesting the NYPD's stop-and-frisk tactics in which critics say police officers racially profile people.

Brown's president says the conduct is "indefensible," but the hecklers, argue it's free speech.

The truth about spying: Everybody does it

European lawmakers are in Washington pushing the White House for answers on U.S. surveillance programs.

They're outraged over reports of U.S. spying. But they do it too.

And the ways other countries spy are straight out of a thriller.
