The two leaders will have a chance to talk at the Summit of the Americas in Panama. This would be the first meeting between an American and Cuban president in sixty years. President Obama first heads off for a stop in Jamaica on Tuesday, before heading to Panama. And questions surrounding last year’s hack of the White House by Russians, still more questions than answers

A North Charleston, South Carolina police officer who shot and killed a driver he had stopped last weekend for a broken tail light will be charged with murder after police received a video of the incident. The officer was identified as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager. North Charleston mayor Keith Summey, speaking at a news conference Monday, reminded people one officer who made a bad decision should not be a reflection of the entire force: Out of 343 police officers, this is a bad decision by one, he said.

As he planted a backpack containing a bomb near a group of children, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made a coldblooded decision aimed at punishing America for its wars in Muslim countries, federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty told the jury during closing arguments Monday at Tsarnaev’s death penalty trial. “This was a cold, calculated terrorist act. This was intentional. It was bloodthirsty.” Defense attorney Judy Clarke countered by arguing, as she did at the trial’s outset, that Tsarnaev took part in the attack but did so under the malevolent influence of his now-dead older brother, Tamerlan. The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Tuesday morning.

The agreement on a framework for a nuclear program deal with Iran was touted as historic by President Obama last week. Even so, many in Congress are not so sure, and want to make sure they have a chance to comb thru the details before agreeing to lift any sanctions. Sen. Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has drawn up a bill that will give Congress a 60-day review period once an agreement is signed, and says he is close to getting enough votes to make the bill veto-proof.
