Description

House lawmakers voted for President Obama's plan to arm and train Syrian rebels in the fight against Islamic State militants and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Senate votes today on a government spending bill and a measure to authorize training Syrian rebels. According to a Senate panel Chinese government hackers have broken into the computer systems of the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) at least 20 times. The Senate Armed Services Committee has investigated the cyber intrusions for one year. U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies tracked the activities of the hackers to a military installation near the Shanghai airport. Finally, Hurricane Odile caused widespread damage in the popular tourist destination of Baja California after leaving a trail of destruction in Mexico. The storm downed power lines, destroyed homes and hotels.
