Last year, a soldier cooked up a chlorine gas bomb on a land navigation course at Ft. Polk. A responding investigator's lung collapsed, and gloves melted off his hands. He may still die from complications. That is what this weapon can do.

After writing about this wife of a Marine, mother of two American girls getting deported, I went to visit her in Mexico and report on her and her divided family. This is what deportation looks like.

The Army missed its recruiting goals for the first time since 2005. And yet, last month it wanted lawyers to scour completed screenings of immigrant recruits to find hints of criminal activity, even after they were cleared by other agencies
