SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Officials say Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl "looked good" after arriving back in the United States. He's working with health professionals in Texas after being held by the Taliban for five years in Afghanistan. Bergdahl's family has yet to join him since he arrived last night, and Army officials would not say when relatives might show up.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is vowing that the United States will not be "dragged back" into military action in Iraq as long as Baghdad's leaders refuse to reform their political system. The president ruled out the possibility of putting American troops on the ground in Iraq in the face of a fast-moving Islamic insurgency.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service says it's lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency's tea party controversy. The news is sparking outrage from congressional investigators. The IRS told Congress it can't locate many of Lois Lerner's emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed during the summer of that year.

WHITNEY, Texas (AP) — The burned remains of a luxury cliff-side home fell 75 feet into Lake Whitney in Texas. Fire crews set the $700,000 retreat ablaze rather than wait for it to crumble into the water as the land faltered around it. It took less than an hour for the fire to level the home about 60 miles south of Fort Worth.

NEW YORK (AP) — A small plane crashed outside New York City today, killing a great grandson of Standard Oil co-founder John D. Rockefeller. The single-engine plane carrying Richard Rockefeller took off from Westchester County Airport and narrowly missed a house west of the airfield before hitting some trees.
