(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day. Here are some of the stories we're covering in today's show:

  • Today a U.S. drone strike killed the Taliban's No. 2 leader in Pakistan, according to a local tribal official and intelligence official. Wali-Ur Rehman Mehsud was second in command to the militant group's leader. He was wanted by the U.S. for suspected involvement in the December 2009 suicide bomb attack that killed seven CIA employees at Forward Operating Base Chapman in Afghanistan. It follows what President Obama said less than a week ago:

"America does not take strikes when we have the ability to capture individual terrorists. Our preference is always to detain, interrogate."

  • When it comes to the recent bomb attacks in Boston, and the soldier attacks in London and France, the term terrorism has been thrown around lightly. But after last September's attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, there was confusion over the use of that word. What separates those incidents from just regular crimes? CNN'[s Libby Lewis looks at that question:

“ What's funny is that there usually isn't a muddle when you talk about terrorism in theory."

  • There's a food fight going on in Washington – a battle over the Farm Bill. It's legislation that essentially is the U.S. government's policy on food, involving everything from subsidies to the school lunch program. But almost two-thirds of this massive bill's spending is on the food stamp program. One man on food stamps says maybe those benefits should be cut:

“It's just a tough issue. Shaving a little bit is good.”

  1. gullible white cattle

    this is not left vs right, GOP vs Dems, Socialism vs liberty. This is war against White people.

    Why do hostile globalist elite defend Israel as a Jewish ethnostate with Jewish only immigration, but ravage White majority Europe/North America into a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural Gulag with dystopian non-White colonization?

    The world is 93% non-White, only 7% White. But 3rd world colonizers, Muslims, Sikhs, Hispanics, are aggressively advancing their agenda to annihilate gullible Whites, just as China annihilates Tibet.

    How long will gullible Whites cuckold for murderous anti-White elite, who confiscate our guns, infiltrate/subvert our banks/FBI/CIA, indoctrinate White kids in academia/mass media, plunder White jobs/wages, & butcher White soldiers in bankrupting wars?

    "Native" Americans invaded from East Asia. Yellow & Brown races committed 10-times more genocide, slavery, imperialism than Whites. Since Old-Testament, Whites have been victims of Jewish/Crypto-Jewish, Turkic, Muslim, N.African imperialism, slavery, genocide.

    Gullible Whites should reject subversive ideologies- libertarianism, feminism, liberalism- & reject hostile slanders of racism. Peace to all humanity, but White people must organize to advance their interests, their fertility, their homelands. Spread this message.
