House votes to protect 'under God' in Pledge

Deported singer says U.S. made 'big mistake' Britain is irked at vagueness of terror suspicions

Stubborn airport safety gaps remain Shockingly, three years after 9/11, airport screeners are still unable to prevent passengers from sneaking explosives and weapons onto airplanes, according to a recent government report on aviation security.

--------------------- COMMENTARY ---------------------

BOB HERBERT
Bush upbeat as Iraq burns As the situation in Iraq moves from bad to worse, the president, based on his public comments, seems to be edging further and further from reality.

PAUL KRUGMAN
