After a week of President Barack Obama's typical lying fashion, his administration finally admitted that the terrorist assault on the American consulate in Benghazi and the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens was a preplanned operation by anti-American jihadists possibly linked to al-Qaida ("Libya assault 'terrorist act,'" Sept. 21). Presenting it as a random attack linked to the recent Islamic riots would absolve his administration of the guilt of failing to prevent what happened.

The Maryland Transit Administration police are investigating a recent fight between three people on a Baltimore Metro train, in which a young male appears to try to throw a man he is fighting from the train while it is in motion, a spokesman confirmed. Video of the incident between the man and two younger males was posted on Facebook last week and had been shared more than 5,000 times as of Monday evening. Paul Shepard, a MTA spokesman, said police have the video, but little additional information.

Rather than articulating why he opposes ArchbishopEdwin O'Brien's position on the contraceptive mandate imposed by theU.S. Department of Health and Human Services, letter writer Edward McCarey McDonnell resorted to an ad hominem attack on the Cardinal-designate ("O'Brien letter a symptom of larger problem," Feb. 12). The Archbishop is a mere mortal like the rest of us, but unlike most of us, he has dedicated his life in service to the people of Christ. He has provided courageous leadership amid enormous difficulties.

As he pondered the notion that the Orioles had yet to lead a game as they drifted behind the Royals 2-0 in the American League Championship Series, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter stressed Saturday what it had taken just to tie each game. “Sometimes you spend so much energy and concentration trying to get back to that point, it's hard to take that next step,” he said. “But I think about a hundred percent of that is what they're doing, not what we're not doing.” That's exactly the point, maybe more so than Showalter meant even as he aptly spoke to the state of the series entering game three Monday night at Kauffman Stadium … weather willing.

The attack on Chrissy Polis ("18-year-old charged in McDonald's beating," April 25) is a tragic and disturbing reminder that Maryland is still a state that fails to provide adequate civil rights protections to transgender people. Each day, transgender Marylanders face discrimination in housing, employment, health care and public accommodations, and they have no legal recourse. The Maryland General Assembly this year again failed to pass the Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Act. Just one week after the legislative session ended, Ms. Polis was beaten while she was in a Baltimore County McDonald's.

The mother of a 22-year-old woman who was raped outside a house in North Baltimore early Saturday called with additional details of the horrific attack. Some information was incomplete in the initial police report. The woman had left Mad River Bar on South Charles Street in Federal Hill but told police she had blacked out and couldn't recall anything until she was attacked in the Lake Evesham neighborhood nearly seven miles away. The victim's mother, whom we are not identifying to shield the name of the young woman, said her daughter worked at Mad River, and had not been out drinking with friends, as the first report seemed to suggest.

If I truly believed Syria's Bashar Assad used Sarin gas to kill his people, I'd be outraged ("Where is the outrage?" Sept. 4). However, after watching much of Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, I'm troubled by the overuse of the term, "alleged. " The word suggests doubt. If Syria's "alleged" actions are so dangerous, where are that country's neighbors? The Israeli Air Force could strike Damascus within minutes. And next door is Turkey with a large standing army.

One of the bright spots in Navy's season-opening 14-7 victory over VMI on Saturday was the play of the starting attack. Sophomores Sam Jones and Tucker Hull and senior Taylor Reynolds combined for 12 goals and six assists. Jones, an Annapolis native and Severna Park graduate who was named Monday the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, paced the offense with five goals and four assists, while Hull chipped in four goals and two assists. But while the attack took center stage, the starting midfield of senior Nikk Davis, junior Bryce Dabbs and sophomore Pat Durkin struggled.

A wheelchair-bound woman died after being attacked by her own pit bull dog early Friday, Baltimore City police and the victim's daughter said. Terry Douglass, 56, suffered fatal injuries after "Boosie," the four-year-old male pit bull that she had raised from puppyhood, attacked her around 12:45 a.m., according to her daughter, Tamathia Davis. "She loved that dog unconditionally," said Davis, who said this was the third time the dog had attacked her mother. Douglass, of the 2000 block of E. 30th St. in the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood, had cerebral palsy and had been using a wheelchair for the past two years due to knee and back problems.

It might seem counterintuitive, but constantly speaking ill of your political opponent can work to his advantage. And that might be what's happened in the Maryland gubernatorial campaign between Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, the Democratic candidate, and real estate executive Larry Hogan, the Republican. Brown and the Democrats have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to portray Hogan as a corporate shill with extreme views on social issues and guns. If you've watched any television over the past few weeks, you've likely seen ads claiming that Hogan is "too dangerous" for Maryland.

Several weeks ago I, and other women voters in Howard County received four glossy mailers attacking Allan Kittleman, the Republican candidate for county executive. The mailers were distributed by Mr. Kittleman's opponent, Democrat Courtney Watson, and her political allies. The allegations they contain are shocking and misleading. The truth is Mr. Kittleman never "called for arming teachers and principals. " A 2006 newspaper article mistakenly attributed that statement to him. The Watson team has admitted its error but has not sent out a retraction.

I have been an exclusively Democratic voter for over four decades, but the inept and totally negative campaign that Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is conducting is making me take a hard look at Republican Larry Hogan ( "Gubernatorial name-calling," Oct. 7). One would think that after seven years in the second highest office in the state, Mr. Brown could point out his accomplishments - or at least inform the voters of what he plans to do if elected governor. Instead, Mr. Brown is running a smear campaign based on quotes pulled out of context from Mr. Hogan's statements - some many years old. It's time for Mr. Brown to explain to the electorate why he deserves to be governor and stop attacking Mr. Hogan.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

As his second trial for the murder of 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes approaches, Michael Maurice Johnson took the witness stand Tuesday and testified that his former attorney told him he had to talk to police — bad advice his new lawyers say helped get him convicted. "He didn't give me an option," said Johnson, 30, his voice scratchy over the courtroom speakers. A Baltimore jury found Johnson guilty of second degree murder last year, but the verdict was overturned after a judge ruled that prosecutors withheld information about a key witness in the case.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown's latest attack ad takes aim at Republican Larry Hogan's opposition to Maryland's new ban on the sale of military-style assault rifles.  The 30-second spot juxtaposes an assault rifle beside footage of empty swings, children playing outside, a grocery store and an office. The images are set to ominous music and a bass line that resembles a heartbeat, which stops thumping at the sound of a bullet being loaded into a chamber.  "Assault weapons don't belong in Maryland," the narrator concludes.

As all Americans mourn the 30 brave warriors who died recently in Afghanistan defending America against new terrorist attacks, it is indeed unfortunate that you relegated to a tiny section of Page A10 an important story about another attack - a cyber-attack - against America that has been ongoing for five to six years ("Warning on cyberspying," Aug. 13). Objective evidence points to China and Russia as the sources of a sustained campaign of cyber-espionage to steal America's intellectual property, technological advancements, and military and business secrets.

When the bay of pigs fiasco erupted not long after President John F. Kennedy took office, he promptly appeared on nationwide television and accepted the blame. This took courage and revealed his character. I immediately respected him. When the attack occurred on the American consulate in Benghazi, however, President Obama appeared before the country and gave an inaccurate account. Since then he has not corrected his statement nor apologized, but instead has delegated that chore to his subordinates.

Baltimore police released surveillance photos of the suspects in a stabbing and robbery of a man this summer in Federal Hill. On Aug. 17, police say Sal Schittino , 24, was left in critical condition by four teens on mopeds in the 1200 block of Wall Street. Police say the teens rode in tandem on a green and a black scooter when they approached Schittino. One of the teens got off the black scooter and stabbed him several times. Police described the assailant as black, wearing a light colored T-shirt and dark pants.

Here's another thing: The attack ad on Larry Hogan that claims Anthony Brown's Republican challenger for governor wants to give a $300 million tax break to corporations at the expense of kindergartners - that's another stretch into the shady side by the Democrats, and for a couple of reasons. First of all, Hogan hasn't said any such thing yet, although, being a mainstream Republican businessman, he says he would cut Maryland's corporate tax rate, and we all know the story there: You can't be a Republican without saying you want to cut taxes.
