Iran induced?

The January release of four American prisoners in Iran, including Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, was heralded as a diplomatic breakthrough, but it's been revealed that the U.S. sent a plane loaded with some $400 million in cash to Tehran at about the same time. The Obama administration insists it was a partial payment of a longstanding claim Iran had against the U.S. and that there was no quid pro quo, but critics say the payment amounted to ransom.

Equal opportunity targeter

Like many before it, Donald Trump's day on the campaign trail was filled with controversial statements, as the GOP nominee took on, among others, the Khan family, the media and major GOP officials, all while speculating the November election will be "rigged." He threw in some eyebrow-raising comments about Purple Hearts and a crying baby, as well.

On Sunday, Donald Trump seemed to question the women who reportedly accused former Fox News chief Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, but he apparently adjusted his position after his son, Eric Trump, made comments on "CBS This Morning" yesterday that sparked firestorm of criticism.

Olympian hurdles

The Summer Olympics get underway in Rio de Janeiro Friday. But a recent survey found 63 percent of Brazilians think hosting the Games is doing more harm than good -- quite a shift in attitude from when Rio first got the games. See why some believe the financial risk of playing host isn't worth any rewards

Levees in lurch

More than a decade after 1,300 people died in flooding caused by Hurricane Katrina, many Americans remain in potential peril from floodwaters. One reason: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Federal Emergency Management Agency have made "little progress" in ensuring that the nation's aging levee system is secure, according to a government watchdog.
