Nikki Haley Feuds With S.C. Legislature
South Carolina's Supreme Court has settled a standoff between Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and the state Legislature. The Legislature won, but the battle seems to be only heating up. Just as the Legislature was wrapping up its regular session earlier this month, Haley ordered the Legislature to return to session.

This is just the latest in the months of sniping and bullying between the governor and the Legislature.

Gates Rebukes NATO Members On Libya Mission
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who leaves office at the end of the month, sharply criticized NATO Friday. He noted that all members of the alliance voted for the Libya mission, but less than half have participated. Just 11 weeks into the mission, the "mightiest military alliance in history" is beginning to run short of munitions, requiring the U.S. once more to make up the difference. The U.S. is "in the midst of a deep economic crisis of our own," he said. "If you told American taxpayers, as I just did, that they're bearing 75 percent of the financial burden of the alliance, this going to raise eyebrows."
