U.S. airstrikes help push ISIS back in Kobani
U.S. airstrikes help push ISIS back in Kobani
October 17, 2014

The increased number of U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in the Syrian city of Kobani reflects more targets of opportunity, not a change in the campaign against the vicious Islamist group, a Pentagon spokesman said Thursday.

The strikes are helping Kurdish fighters on the ground push back ISIS militants in the Syrian town, according to sources there.

"There's been no strategic shift here, as far as I know, at least from the military perspective, about Kobani or any other town," Rear Adm. John Kirby said, making a unique appearance at the State Department's daily briefing.

In recent weeks, administration and U.S. defense officials have said it wasn't essential to keep the city, not far from the border with Turkey, from becoming the latest in Syria to fall into ISIS hands.

"We never said Kobani didn't matter," Kirby said. "What makes Kobani matter for us from an airstrike perspective is that (ISIS is) there, and that they want it."

Police: More than 30 arrested in Ferguson protest
Police: More than 30 arrested in Ferguson protest
October 14, 2014

Pounding rain and tornado watches didn't deter hundreds of protesters who stayed outside Ferguson police headquarters for more than four hours Monday, the same amount of time that the 18-year-old Michael Brown's body was left in the street after he was fatally shot by police.

Nearly 20 people were arrested during the rally, with some protesters using a bullhorn to read the names of people killed by police nationwide. The rally was led by clergy members during a third straight day of rallies in the St. Louis suburb where Brown was unarmed when he was fatally shot on Aug. 9.

Protests have been common since Brown, who was black, was killed by a white police officer. But tensions escalated last week when a white police officer in nearby St. Louis shot and killed 18-year-old Vonderrit Myers Jr., who police say shot at officers before he was killed.

"My faith compels me to be here," said Bishop Wayne Smith of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. "I want to show solidarity, and call attention to the structural racism of St. Louis."

Protesters were met by about 40 officers in riot gear. Several clergy members approached individual Ferguson officers and asked them to "repent" for Brown's killing and other acts of violence. Some officers engaged the protesters, while others ignored the efforts.

"My heart feels that this has been going on too long," Ferguson officer Ray Nabzdyk told the clergy. "We all stand in fault because we didn't address this."

St. Louis County Police spokesman Shawn McGuire said about 13 people were arrested at police headquarters on charges of peace disturbance. Six others were later arrested for failing to disperse after blocking a street.

Organizers promised civil disobedience Monday, but have declined to offer specifics. Earlier Monday, hundreds of people marched to Saint Louis University, though no arrests were made.

NBC's Snyderman Apologizes for Ebola Quarantine Violation
NBC's Snyderman Apologizes for Ebola Quarantine Violation
October 14, 2014

NBC medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman issued a statement tonight apologizing for reported violations of the quarantine she and her NBC News team were placed in after freelancer photographer Ashoka Mukpo, who was working with the NBC team in Liberia, was diagnosed with Ebola.

After reports of the quarantine violation, NBC News ordered Snyderman and her team to be placed in isolation. Reports from Planet Princeton and TMZ alleged that Snyderman was spotted in public, in violation of the quarantine, to pick up soup from a New Jersey restaurant.

Brian Williams read Snyderman's statement on the air tonight on NBC Nightly News. Here it is in full:

"While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed. We remain healthy and our temperatures are normal.

"As a health professional I know that we have no symptoms and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused. We are thrilled that Ashoka is getting better and our thoughts continue to be with the thousands affected by Ebola whose stories we all went to cover."

Texas nurse who had worn protective gear tests positive for Ebola
Texas nurse who had worn protective gear tests positive for Ebola
October 13, 2014

The deadly Ebola virus has been contracted by someone inside the United States for the first time.

A nurse who had worn protective gear during her "extensive contact" at a Dallas hospital with an Ebola patient who died tested positive during a preliminary blood test, officials said Sunday.

The woman had on a gown, gloves, mask and a shield during her multiple visits with Thomas Eric Duncan, but there was a breach in protocol, health officials said.

The patient is a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, an official who is familiar with the case told CNN.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta conducted testing on the blood sample, and confirmed the results Sunday, marking the first known transmission of Ebola in the United States and the second diagnosis in the country.

U.S. officials: ISIS will capture Kobani, but it's not a big concern to us
U.S. officials: ISIS will capture Kobani, but it's not a big concern to us
October 8, 2014

The key Syrian border city of Kobani will fall to ISIS, but that's not a major U.S. concern, several senior U.S. administration officials said.

If Kobani falls, ISIS would control a complete swath of land between its self-declared capital of Raqqa, Syria, and Turkey -- a stretch of more than 100 kilometers (62 miles).

The officials said the goals in Syria are not to save cities and towns, but to go after ISIS' senior leadership, oil refineries and other infrastructure that would curb the terror group's ability to operate -- particularly in Iraq.

The officials said saving Iraq is a more strategic goal for several reasons, including the fact that the United States has a relationship with the Iraqi government.

But on Tuesday, a top U.N. official implored world leaders to take action as Kurdish fighters defending Kobani are dangerously outmatched.

"They have been defending themselves with great courage. But they are now very close to not being able to do so," said Staffan de Mistura, the U.N. special envoy for Syria.

"They are fighting with normal weapons, whereas the ISIS has got tanks and mortars."

"The international community needs to defend them," de Mistura added. "The international community cannot sustain another city falling under ISIS."

US military personnel on Ebola mission to handle blood samples
US military personnel on Ebola mission to handle blood samples
October 8, 2014

The U.S. military mission to combat Ebola in West Africa is facing questions about the serious health risks American troops will encounter in heading to the epicenter of the deadly outbreak.

According to officials, a small group of trained military medical technicians on the ground will not be required to make direct contact with patients infected with the Ebola virus. However, they will have to handle infected blood samples, which Pentagon officials acknowledged Tuesday could be just as dangerous, if not more.

Already, three mobile-testing labs, staffed by three or four technicians each, have been deployed in Liberia as part of Operation United Assistance, the U.S. military's effort to combat the Ebola virus. Four more labs have been requested.

Pentagon officials say the servicemembers on these small teams are the only individuals who will be intentionally handling any raw material that could be infected.
