SHOCKING RULING: Judge Releases NM Extremists

In a shocking ruling, a judge released four of the five adults arrested from the Islamic extremist compound in New Mexico that was raided last week.

The latest crisis between North Korea and the U.S. appears separate from the war with Islamism, but there are 10 ways it overlaps.
