The chairs of both the House and Senate intelligence committees prodded President Barack Obama on Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014, to take decisive action against the growing threats from Islamic State militants on U.S. soil. "His foreign policy is in absolute free-fall," Rogers said of President Barack Obama. In a separate interview Sunday California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein who heads the Senate intelligence panel said Obama efforts to combat Islamic state group are perhaps "too cautious." "This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous," she said. "And they'll kill with abandon."  (AP Photo/J.

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans and Cuban-Americans fly in and out of Cuba each year thanks to the liberalization of U.S. and Cuban travel rules over the last five years. On Monday, Sept. 1, 2014, the Cuban government will enact new rules meant to take a big bite of that traffic, sharply limiting the amount of goods people can bring into Cuba in their luggage, and ship by boat from abroad.
