Lee Gelernt

There's absolutely no question the government can't deport somebody to be tortured. What they're challenging are the current conditions in Iraq. Through no fault of their own, they're still here. Iraq wouldn't take them back. Now the government wants to send them back.feedback

Eric Van der Sypt

It is clear that he wanted to cause much more damage than he did. He tried to make the case explode, it caught fire. There was a small explosion first, then he moved away and the case exploded a second time. This was a stronger blast but the damage could have been a lot worse.feedback

Charles Michel

I am pleased that very quickly this morning, from 8:15, we were able to resume the circulation of public transport and demonstrate this capacity to confront this threat facing us with calm and lucidity, in a composed manner with the determination to protect our freedom and our fundamental values. We will not let ourselves be intimidated. We will go on living our lives as normal.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Democracy isn't built from the outside without the people. France didn't take part in the Iraq war and that was right. And France was wrong to take part in the war in Libya in the way it did. What was the result of those interventions? Failed states where terrorist groups prospered. I don't want that in Syria. Three: I have red lines on chemical weapons and humanitarian corridors. I said it very clearly to Vladimir Putin. I will be uncompromising on that. So the use of chemical weapons will be met with a response, and even if France acts alone.feedback

When I talk to people, I say: 'All of us know someone whose life has been destroyed by drugs - a family member, a friend, a neighbour'. Every day, men and women want to get out there.feedback

Stevany Shakare

They weren't OK with it at first. It was the dangers of the job and being away from home. But eventually they realized this is what I wanted to do. My mom tells all of her friends, This is what my daughter is doing!' She's excited about it.feedback

Leila Mustafa

We are very worried, because obviously if there is already one case of polio of a kid that is paralyzed it's already an outbreak. We know for example that for one kid that is paralyzed there are almost 200 asymptomatic so it means that virus circulating, so it is very serious.feedback

Charles Lister

There isn't an over-arching U.S. strategy driving this. This is just the result of tactical decisions by a commander on the ground whose only focus is a specific theatre in Syria. He is acting to protect his assets ... This is purely a series of tactical decisions that are creating a series of very serious strategic consequences.feedback

Jennifer Cafarella

The absence of a civilian-led U.S. strategy in Syria and the narrow U.S. military focus on ISIS will continue to provide an open invite for the pro-Assad regime coalition to extend and escalate.feedback

Genevieve Casagrande

We will collect airstrikes that have 20 to 30 different reports of what the airstrike was, what it hit, photos of the plane, accounts about the high-pitched sound of the plane or how many were flying in the group, etc. It doesn't mean it didn't happen.feedback

Genevieve Casagrande

We are pushing back Daesh [so-called Islamic State] militarily, but the threat we face is evolving rather than disappearing as they lose ground in Iraq and Syria. The fight is moving from the battlefield to the internet.feedback

Joseph Scrocca

The Iraq Security Force operation at the Al-Waleed crossing further demonstrates their resolve to defeat [Daesh] throughout all of Iraq. This operation has no bearing on Coalition partner training operations at ... Tanf.feedback

Izzat El-Reshiq - Hamas

Mohsen Rezaee

Nora Love

This will be a terrifying time for around 100,000 people still trapped in Mosul's old city and now at risk of being caught up in fierce street fighting to come. With its narrow and winding streets, Iraqi forces will be even more reliant on airstrikes despite the difficulty in identifying civilians sheltering in buildings and the increased risks of civilians being used as human shields by ISIS fighters.feedback

Hisham al-Hashimi

The Russians are trying to improve their record fighting Daesh [Isis] as it was the Americans who have killed the top commanders of the group so far, like Abu Omar al-Shishani, Abu Muslim al-Turkmani, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani and Abu Ali al-Anbari. If [Russia's] announcements prove wrong, their credibility will be hurt.feedback

Patrick Johnston - Rand Corporation

Patrick Skinner

Ayman Mohyeldin - NBC News

Yes, there should be skepticism. There have been several reports he has been killed in the past.feedback

Ken King

Ali Akbar Velayati

The U.S. Senate's move is unquestionably in breach of both the spirit and the letter of the nuclear deal.

The information is that as of the end of last month Baghdadi was in Deir al-Zor, in the area between Deir al-Zor and Iraq, in Syrian territory. Is it reasonable that Baghdadi would put himself between a rock and a hard place of the (U.S.-led) coalition and Russia?feedback

Ali Sadaat

ISIS claimed responsibility, but we are not sure. It may be Taliban terrorists, it may be a fifth column in the government. There are too many questions unanswered, like how did these terrorists know about last night's program?feedback
