    Changes Five Years After Bin Laden's Death

    President Barack Obama announced Osama bin Laden's death shortly before midnight on May 1st, 2011 during a televised appearance in the East Room of the White House. Yet five years later, militant Islamic extremism has hardly receded.

    "For over two decades, bin Laden has been al Qaeda's leader and symbol, and has continued to plot attacks against our country and our friends and allies," Obama said. "The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation's effort to defeat al Qaeda."

    NBC News boiled down three important developments since bin Laden's death. They look at the rise of the Islamic State, an Al Qaeda resurgence and the unintended use of Guantanamo Bay as "key magnets for jihadi recruitment," according to Obama.

  • A Look at Clinton's Promise of a Cabinet Full of Women

    A Look at Clinton's Promise of a Cabinet Full of Women

    Hillary Clinton last week pledged that, if elected, she would appoint a presidential cabinet in which at least half of the members are women, a move that would profoundly shift the look of the people who govern America, according to NBC News.

    Clinton, in an interview on Monday with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, said, "I am going to have a cabinet that looks like America, and 50 percent of America is women, right?"

    Only 30 women have ever held Cabinet posts. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama appointed a number of women to key posts, but women held just four of the 16 official Cabinet posts during most of their tenures. Clinton is pledging to double that number.

    "No hint of quotas or numeric targets — other than 'more than my predecessor' — has ever been part of cabinet head discussions before," said Heather Hurlburt, who served as a senior adviser at the State Department and National Security Council from 1995-2001. "So it's an enormous deal."
