...North Korea nuke test...State of the Union...Pope
It's Tuesday, February 12...big news overnight: North Korea conducts another nuclear test - and President Obama, in the middle of the night, reacts...this as the President readies tonight's State of the Union address. Also: who will succeed Pope Benedict? These and other headlines in today's edition of "While You Were Sleeping"...from Newsroom America and West Wing Reports:
NORTH KOREA TESTS NUCLEAR WEAPON: Reuters says North Korea conducted its third nuclear test in defiance of U.N. resolutions, angering the United States and Japan and likely to infuriate its only major ally, China, and increase penalties against Pyongyang. The New York Times says whether or not Chinese leader Xi Jinping gets tough on North Korea could tell the United States what kind of leader he will be, and what kind of relationship he envisions with Washington. Meantime, the USA Today: two men are charged with murder in the shooting death of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton a week after she performed at President Obama's inauguration. The Washington Post says a few words and a handshake on national TV can pay off back home for House members willing to sit and linger to save an aisle seat before President Obama’s State of the Union speech; ABC has an interesting infographic that lets you compare what President Obama says tonight with words used by past presidents in their speeches before Congress.
