OBAMA HEARING BACKLASH OVER VISIT TO UK
(WA. POST) President Barack Obama flew to the UK Thursday for a meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron.
The UK is involved in a heated debate between its politicians over whether the country should remain in the European Union. Prime Minister Cameron is backing the “Remain” campaign.
Cameron is from the Conservative party and many of his own party members support the “Leave” campaign, otherwise known as “Brexit”, which stands for British-Exit.
It’s a tight race with the “Remain” campaign holding a narrow lead at 1%.
Those who want the UK to leave are not happy with Obama flying out to intervene. Obama is there to back Cameron and the Remain campaign.
Critics say Obama should stay out of other countries’ business.

SOLDIER HELPS FOIL TERROR ATTACK ON SCHOOL
(CNN) A U.S. Army captain working in Iraq helped foil a terrorist plot to blow up a school in Denmark.
Col. Steve Warren, a spokesman for the coalition fighting ISIS, said that Capt. Bradley Grimm provided “actionable intelligence” gleaned from captured documents in Iraq about foreign fighters from Denmark that included information on threats against a Danish school involving homemade explosives.
Warren said that Grimm, who was based at al-Asad airbase in the western Iraqi province of Anbar, “did all of this voluntarily in addition to his duties.”
He was recently awarded the Danish Defense Medal for Special Meritorious Effort in a ceremony with Danish Chief of Defense Gen. Peter Bartram.
