Obama in Baghdad, tells troops Iraq must take over

BAGHDAD - Cheered wildly by U.S. troops, President Barack Obama flew unannounced into Iraq on Tuesday and promptly declared it was time for Iraqis to "take responsibility for their country" after America's commitment of six years and thousands of lives.

BINGHAMTON, New York - The sister of the man who killed 13 people and took his own life at an immigrant center was depressed about losing his job at a vacuum manufacturer and very frustrated with his poor English skills, his sister said Monday.

In an interview on NBC's "Today" show, Jiverly Wong's sister said she had "occasional communications" with him but they hadn't lived in the same house together for 20 years. The woman, whose name wasn't given during the interview, said her younger sibling kept his feelings to himself.
