U.S. cyber attacks against Iranian targets have not been successful, Iran's telecoms minister said on Monday, after reports that the Pentagon had launched a long-planned cyber attack to disable his country's rocket launch systems. Tension is running high between longtime foes Iran and the United States after U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he called off a military strike to retaliate for Iran's downing of a U.S. drone. However, Yahoo News reported on Thursday that the United States had launched cyber attacks, even as Trump backed away from a conventional attack.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services had declined to renew the clinic's license on Friday, leading it to mount a legal challenge.
Despite calling off a military strike against Iran, the U.S. is still poised to hit Iran hard after weeks of mounting tensions between the two countries, President Trump said on Sunday, in what appeared to be a coordinated effort by the administration to keep the pressure on Tehran. Trump in an interview with NBC's “Meet the Press” said he is “not looking for war” with Iran, but warned of "obliteration like you've never seen before” if Iran resumes its efforts to build nuclear weapons. Vice President Mike Pence told Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” that “Iran should not mistake restraint for a lack of resolve.
The avowed white supremacist who plowed his car into counterdemonstrators opposing a white nationalist rally in Virginia two years ago, killing one person and injuring dozens, has asked a judge for mercy and a sentence shorter than life in prison. Lawyers for James Alex Fields Jr., 22, said in a sentencing memo submitted in court documents Friday that the defendant should not spend his entire life in prison because of his age, a traumatic childhood and a history of mental illness. Fields pleaded guilty to federal hate crimes in March and is set to be sentenced on June 28.
Bernie Sanders will unveil a plan to cancel all $1.6 trillion (£1.3 trillion) of US student debt by introducing a new tax on Wall Street speculation. The Democratic presidential candidate is proposing that federal government pays to wipe clean the student debt held by 45 million Americans including all private and graduate school debt. Mr Sanders is proposing to pay for these plans with a tax on Wall Street that his campaign says will raise more than $2 trillion over 10 years, though some tax experts give lower revenue estimates.
Just days after the Archdiocese of Indianapolis cut ties with one Catholic high school over its decision to continue to employee a gay teacher, another school is firing one of its educators to avoid the same fate. Cathedral High School, located on the northeast side of Indianapolis, announced Sunday it is terminating a gay teacher in order to avoid a split with the archdiocese, which, last week, stripped Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School of its Catholic identity. Brebeuf refused to fire its educator, who is in a public same-sex marriage.
Italy's hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said he would hold the Netherlands and the European Union "responsible" for the fate of 42 migrants that Rome has blocked from disembarking at Italian ports for over a week. The Dutch-flagged rescue boat Sea-Watch 3 has been stuck in the Mediterranean since rescuing 53 migrants drifting in an inflatable raft off the coast of Libya on June 12. While 11 of those on board the Sea-Watch have been allowed to disembark -- including two pregnant women -- the vessel has been denied permission to dock in Italy.
A new tanker, which will of course modernize and sustain the refueling mission for the Air Force, is fundamental to the service's air superiority and rapid deployability priorities. The new KC-46A tanker will build upon the mission current tankers currently serve, meaning it will be forward- stationed at strategically vital locations around the globe to increase mission length and effectiveness, as needed, for a wide-range of aircraft, Air Force developers said. Extending the strike range of attack aircraft such as an F-15, F-35 or F-22 brings great tactical significance in a modern threat environment wherein long range strike weapons used by potential adversaries could make it challenging for the Air Force to base and launch fighters within the proper striking proximity.
Talks between OPEC and its allies next month about whether to extend their pact on cutting oil supplies "won't be easy" and may be complicated by the situation facing Iran and Venezuela, Kazakh Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev said.

Senator Bernie Sanders, one of the top-tier candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, plans to unveil a proposal Monday to cancel all U.S. student loan debt. The College for All Act would cover $1.6 trillion in student debt and would affect 45 million Americans who would save on average about $3,000 a year. “In a generation hard hit by the Wall Street crash of 2008, [the plan] forgives all student debt and ends the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation to a lifetime of debt for the 'crime' of getting a college education,” the Vermont progressive plans to say in introducing the proposal.

We are having a very tough time dealing with damages in the finances as well as the crimes that were committed.
All the reasons. The Navy Would Love to 'Sink' The Littoral Combat Ship. Given the embarrassing cost overruns and frequent mechanical failures that have plagued the program, the exquisitely-detailed report suggests that the Navy has run out of patience for the disappointment mill that is the Littoral Combat Ship, once the backbone of the future fleet that could have 355 ships. After 16 years and billions of dollars, the Navy may have finally acknowledged that its Littoral Combat Ship program looks like a miserable failure.
SOUTH BEND, Indiana—Democratic Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg strode off the campaign trail and directly into the full force of constituent anger on Sunday, when a town hall held to discuss the police shooting death of a black man descended into shouts, heckling and demands for police reform. The mayor's appearance on his home turf, which took place just hours after a mass shooting at a pub that killed one and injured at least 10 more, was in response to the police killing Eric Logan, a black man, near central South Bend. “I just want you to know that we're not running from this.” Buttigieg said to room.
