A federal judge wondered how someone could have fallen for Amir Anjum Shamim's scams, but since at least six willing investors did, the judge sentenced the Oregon man to three years and five months in prison for three counts of wire fraud.

The Obama administration's decision to curb the ability of U. S. corporations to skirt taxes by merging with foreign companies kicked off an immediate election-season debate over when and how to tackle the nation's complex corporate tax code.

Two months before Omar J. Gonzalez allegedly hopped a White House fence, dashed across the North Lawn and entered the executive mansion, he was arrested in rural Virginia, heavily armed and carrying a map of Washington tucked inside a Bible — with a circle drawn around the White House.
The 42-year-old Army veteran from Copperas Cove, Texas, had been arrested July 19 in rural southwestern Virginia after a state trooper received a call about a man in a Ford Bronco driving erratically.
After his arrest, troopers and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives found weapons that included two semi-automatic, military-style rifles, including one with a bipod and flashlight and one with a bipod and scope; three .45-caliber handguns; and several loaded ammunition magazines.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said he would ultimately review the findings of the investigation and urged the public to not rush to judgment or second-guess security officers, whom he said "had only seconds to act."
Officers who spotted Gonzalez scaling the fence determined he didn't have any weapons in his hands and wasn't wearing clothing that could conceal substantial quantities of explosives, a primary reason agents did not fire their weapons, according to a U.
Israeli forces stormed a West Bank hideout early on Tuesday and killed two Palestinians suspected in the fatal abduction of three Israeli teens in June, one of the incidents that ultimately sparked the Gaza war this summer, an Israeli military spokesman said.
The three Israeli teens — Eyal Yifrah, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship — were abducted from a West Bank hitchhiking post on June 12, setting off a manhunt in which Israel dispatched forces across the West Bank and arrested hundreds of Hamas activists.
In the days leading up to the start of the Gaza war in early July, a Palestinian youth was also abducted and killed in the West Bank by Israeli extremists in an apparent revenge attack over the teens' slaying.
