Week in the News

It was a roller coaster of a week. A National Intelligence Estimate said Iran ended its nuclear weapons program four years ago — but not everyone is buying it. Defense Secretary Gates said the Marines will stay in Iraq. The Supreme Court pondered the rights of Guantanamo detainees, and the CIA admitted it destroyed tapes of interrogations.

The presidential race tightened in Iowa, as polls showed Obama and Huckabee gaining momentum, and Mitt Romney made a long-awaited speech on his faith.
