Warriors’ Iguodala ruled out; Thompson to play

8:03 PM ET Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said guard Klay Thompson will play Thursday night in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets, but forward Andre Iguodala has been ruled out.

How a Battle Between Russian Mercenaries and US Commandos Unfolded in Syria

WASHINGTON — The artillery barrage was so intense that the American commandos dived into foxholes for protection, emerging covered in flying dirt and debris to fire back at a column of tanks advancing under the heavy shelling. It was the opening salvo in a nearly four-hour assault in February by around 500 pro-Syrian government forces — including Russian mercenaries — that threatened to inflame already-simmering tensions between Washington and Moscow. In the end, 200 to 300 of the attacking fighters were killed. The others retreated under merciless airstrikes from the United States, returning later to retrieve their battlefield dead. None of the Americans at the small outpost in eastern Syria — about 40 by the end of the firefight — were harmed. The details of the Feb. 7 firefight were gle...

Trump had to cancel the North Korea summit — We almost lost sight of who we’re dealing with

Trump cancels summit with Kim, cites tremendous anger White House officials tell Fox News that a threat from Vice Minister of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, Choe Son Hui, was at center of decision to cancel meeting with Kim Jong Un; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports. President Trump did the right thing Thursday when he canceled his planned June 12 summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and pledged to continue a “maximum pressure campaign” against the nuclear-armed communist dictatorship. Kim really gave President Trump no choice, after North Korean propaganda outlets once again made veiled references to a potential nuclear clash with the U.S. After that, President Trump would have looked weak and foolish to meet with the dictator – with a summit e...

Trump awards Medal of Honor to Navy SEAL for controversial mission in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON –  Six months after the 9/11 attacks, then-Senior Chief Petty Officer Britt Slabinski led a seven-man Navy SEAL Team Six unit to set up an observation post in eastern Afghanistan atop a 10,000-foot mountain known as Takur Ghar, to support U.S. forces in the valley below battling Al Qaeda in an operation known as Anaconda. In the ensuing battle, seven Americans would be killed. Thursday afternoon at the White House, President Trump presented Slabinski with the Medal of Honor for his actions – getting wounded team members off the mountain and directing devastating close-air-support against the enemy. But not everyone in the military’s close-knit special operations community sees it that way. Many in the Army’s elite Delta Force and 75th Ranger Regiment claim Slabinski left a man b...
