Week in the News

Hard words — and tough revelations — as America takes on board some big news this week. In Washington, CIA Director Michael Hayden went before the Senate Intelligence Committee and gave his explanation for the destruction of CIA interrogation videos.

In Bali, Indonesia, former Vice President Al Gore slammed his own country for obstructing action on climate change.

In Manhattan, former Senator George Mitchell delivered a scathing report on Major League Baseball's "steroids era."
