    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Protesters rallied in dozens of cities Saturday as part of a global protest against seed giant Monsanto and the genetically modified food it produces, organizers said. Organizers said "March Against Monsanto" protests were held in 52 countries and 436 cities, including Los Angeles where demonstrators waved signs that read "Real Food 4 Real People" and "Label GMOs, It's Our Right to Know."… The U.S. Senate this week overwhelmingly rejected a bill that would allow states to require labeling of genetically modified foods.

    Looking to slow Newt Gingrich's momentum from his victory in the South Carolina primary, Mitt Romney's presidential team called Monday for Mr. Gingrich to release the consulting contracts he held with Freddie Mac. The Romney camp suggested that Mr. Gingrich is trying to cover up the fact that he lobbied members of Congress on behalf of the mortgage housing giant, which reportedly paid him more than a million dollars — though the Georgia Republican says he advised them as a "historian."

    Dec. 21, 2010 |(185) Comments Madison — Outgoing Gov. Jim Doyle quietly attended a United Nations climate change conference in Cancun earlier this month, an aide confirmed. The Democratic governor, who leaves office Jan. 3, and his chief of staff, Susan Goodwin, had their travel expenses to Mexico paid by an international group, the Governors' Climate and Forests Taskforce, said Doyle spokesman Adam Collins. But state taxpayers paid the undisclosed travel expenses of the governor's policy adviser and two security staff, who accompanied him on the trip. The governor's office did not put out any statement or news release about...

    WASHINGTON -- The Central Intelligence Agency has acknowledged that it did not provide the United Nations with information about 21 of the 105 sites in Iraq singled out by U.S. intelligence before the war as the most highly suspected of housing illicit weapons. The acknowledgment, in a Jan. 20 letter to Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), contradicts public statements before the war by top Bush administration officials. Both CIA Director George Tenet and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said the United States had briefed U.N. inspectors on all of the sites identified as "high value and moderate value" in the weapons...

    Orlando, Florida-AP -- Leaders of two Jewish groups are giving negative reviews after posing as pastors so they could attend an advance screening of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ." Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League and Rabbis James Rudin and David Elcott of the American Jewish Committee paid their way into the Global Pastors Network conference in Florida. They sat unnoticed Wednesday evening among thousands of pastors, who had been addressed earlier in the day by Gibson himself. Foxman and the rabbis told The Washington Times they registered for the conference under a fabricated church name and signed...
