    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Ben Carson accepted Ted Cruz's apology after the Texas senator's campaign was accused of trying to sabotage his opponent's chances in the Iowa caucuses. But Carson lamented the types of "dirty tricks" that he believes are reflected in "Washington values." "These 'dirty tricks' political tactics are part of the reason Dr. Carson got into this race and reflect the 'Washington values' of win at all cost -- regardless of the damage to the country -- which he is trying to change," Carson communication director Larry Ross said in a statement to announce the former neurosurgeon had accepted...

White House spokesman Josh Earnest told Reuters he was not aware of any discussions between Washington and Tehran about an American apology for the incident and noted one "certainly" had not been given. Earnest explained that President Barack Obama had not mentioned the incident during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night so as not to elevate the issue and jeopardize the sailors'...

    Iran has released 10 US sailors after holding them overnight, bringing a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves days ahead of the expected implementation of a landmark nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said it had freed the sailors on Wednesday after determining they had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake. The sailors had been detained aboard two US Navy patrol boats in the Gulf on Tuesday. "Our technical investigations showed the two US Navy boats entered Iranian territorial waters inadvertently," the IRGC said in a statement carried by state...

    On November 13, President Obama claimed that ISIS was "contained." One day later, ISIS painted bloody red lines on Paris streets. The credibility of American foreign policy took another big hit. Then came Saturday's Wall Street Journal report that last week, "an American B-52 bomber on a routine mission over the South China Sea unintentionally flew within two nautical miles of an artificial island [Cuarteron] built by China." This seemed like good news, suggesting that Obama was challenging -- under cover of an "unintentional" foray -- China's imperial project in the East China and South China Seas. That would be...

    The State Departments Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday for promoting a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The apology came on the heels of a Friday Washington Free Beacon report detailing the CT Bureaus promotion of Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of a radical Muslim scholars group that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called for the death of Jews and Americans. Bin Bayyah himself is one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa, or religious...

    I rarely agree with Obama, but this time he has a point. We've certainly done our share of producing hot air. And by "us", I mean him. Because Obama just does not stop talking. In a speech interrupted by repeated beeps warning that he had exceeded his time limit, Mr. Obama said in Le Bourget that the climate conference represented an important turning point in world history because the leaders attending the meeting now recognize the urgency of the problem. The urgency of the problem is how to shut him up. All the world leaders agree on that. Every...

    Josh Duggar, Executive Director of the Family Research Council Action in Ames, Iowa August 9, 2014. Hunter Frederick, a Christian public relations expert once rumored to have been hired to help manage the fallout from the sexual abuse allegations surrounding Josh Duggar, star of "19 Kids and Counting," by the Duggar family, says the recent apology from the embattled Christian figure and his parents is not enough to sate the effects of the scandal that has engulfed the family. "I have no reason to think their apology wasn't sincere, but an apology is one small thing that needs to happen...

    Ian Reisner, one of the two gay hoteliers facing boycott calls for hosting an event for Senator Ted Cruz, who is adamantly opposed to gay marriage, apologized to the gay community for showing poor judgment. Mr. Reisner put the apology on Facebook, where a page calling for a boycott of his properties, the gay-friendly OUT NYC hotel and his Fire Island Pines holdings, had gotten more than 8,200 likes by Sunday evening. I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake, wrote Mr. Reisner. The...

In the Islamic faith it is believed that those who disobey or disrespect their parents...

    By Fox News. Potential 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson apologized Wednesday for saying homosexuality was a lifestyle choice.I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation, Carson said on his Facebook page late Wednesday afternoon. I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended. Carson, a neurosurgeon, was attempting to clarify comments he made earlier in the day to Chris Cuomo on CNNs New Day show. A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and...

    Dear Moderator, I behaved in an overwhelming improper manner, inappropriate, irreconcilable with Free Republic's uncompromising standards of civility and professionalism. I demonstrated a regretful and terrible lack of respect, decorum and professional demeanor in the language used here at Free Republic in a previous post. As I mentioned earlier, I sincerely apologize for my behavior and again want to reassure you that such behavior will never occur again. To demonstrate the sincerity in which I have acknowledged having done wrong and offering my deepest regret and apology, I have taken to impose upon myself a one week moratorium on posting...

    Dear World, How are you? You dont have to answer. I know. Ive been reading the news. Its awful. And I know youre looking to where the world has looked for the better part of the last century for leadership and moral clarity, to the United States. And I know you arent finding it there right now. For that, I am sorry. We Americans elected and re-elected a used car salesman to the most important office on the planet, and everyone got a lemon. The first time was because so many of our citizens have been conditioned to feel guilty...
