WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service is promising a thorough review of the White House security breach in which a man climbed a fence and made it inside the front door before being caught. Rep.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The fight against Islamic State militants is the focus of President Barack Obama's weekly media message. He notes that more than 40 countries say they're willing to help and he repeats his vow not to involve U.S. troops in combat roles. For the Republicans, the topic is energy and jobs. Colorado Rep. Cory Gardner called on the president to stop blocking responsible energy development on public lands and end regulatory overreach. He says that's blocked jobs "and left too many behind."

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Tomorrow marks one year since the terrorist attack on a mall in Kenya that left 67 people dead and the country's police chief is asking people to think security and keep their eyes open.

Al-Shabab militants from Somalia claimed responsibility for the mall attack.
