The embarrassing disclosures about lapses in presidential security just keep coming for the Secret Service.

United States-Islamic State
The Pentagon is grappling with significant intelligence gaps as it bombs Iraq and Syria, and it is operating under less restrictive targeting rules than those President Barack Obama imposed on the CIA drone campaign in Pakistan and Yemen, according to current and former U.S. officials.
Obama-Midterm-Message
President Barack Obama's escalating military campaign in Iraq and Syria has drowned out the economic pitch he hoped would help salvage a midterm election that has been favoring Republicans. But the airstrikes against Islamic State extremists have also introduced a new complicating factor into the fall campaign, forcing both sides to reassess their closing political messages.
Obama US Israel
President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet for the first time since a rash of civilian casualties during Israel's summer war with Hamas heightened tensions between two leaders who have long had a prickly relationship.
The United States and Brazil have resolved a decade-long trade battle over subsidies Washington provided to American cotton growers, an official close to the negotiations said late Tuesday.
A staff member with Cincinnati's football program was fired Tuesday, four days after the school learned that he had been arrested on a misdemeanor sexual abuse charge in northern Kentucky.
A national brain injury group has condemned the proposed payout scheme for NFL concussion claims as "deeply flawed," saying it excludes many former players suffering from mood swings, depression, aggression and other related problems.
President Barack Obama rode an elevator this month with an armed security contractor who had three criminal convictions, a violation of Secret Service security protocols, according to published reports.
