Report: Clinton Used Personal Email at State Dept.

The U.S. State Department said Monday that Hillary Clinton had recently provided the agency with emails from her time as Secretary of State after the New York Times reported the former first lady had only used a personal email address to conduct government business while at the State Department — a possible violation of federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. The Times reported that Clinton, widely expected to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, never even used a State Department email address during her four years there.

"Jihadi John" Says 9/11 "Wrong" in New Audio Recording

A new recording purportedly of "Jihadi John" has emerged in which the suspected ISIS executioner recounts how British spies accused him of extremism. In the audio extracts, which could not be verified independently by NBC News, Mohammed Emwazi also described how a British agent asked his thoughts on the 9/11 terror attacks. "He started telling me 'What do you think of 9/11?' and I think I told him 'This is a wrong thing … what happened was wrong," the voice purportedly belonging to Emwazi recounts. The edited recording was released by controversial U.K. rights group, CAGE, which interviewed Emwazi in 2009. CAGE has accused Britain's security services of driving him to extremism — a claim the British government has decried as reprehensible. Read »

In an interview with Reuters at the White House, Obama said that a rift over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned speech to Congress opposing the Iran deal on Tuesday was a distraction that would not be "permanently destructive" to U.S.-Israeli ties. But he said there was a "substantial disagreement" between his administration and the Israeli government over how to achieve their shared goal of preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
