Video: High School Students Confront $14.3T National Debt

SNOHOMISH, Wash. -- "It's scary" said Mayra Araujo.  "It’s huge," added Kaitlyn Everson.  The two Snohomish High School Seniors are talking about this country's national debt.

OAKLAND, Calif. — California preacher Harold Camping said Monday his prophecy that the world would end was off by five months because Judgment Day actually will come on Oct. 21.

Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before the Earth was destroyed, said he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife. His independent ministry, Family Radio International, spent millions — some of it from donations made by followers — on more than 5,000 billboards and 20 RVs plastered with the Judgment Day message.

Thomas Drake, a former National Security Agency executive charged with leaking classified information to a reporter, said in his first television interview on 60 Minutes Sunday that his prosecution is meant to send a "chilling message" to potential government whistleblowers. Drake is accused of violating the World War II era Espionage Act and faces up to thirty-five years in prison for taking five documents home. In a recent piece Jane Mayer of the New Yorker writes, “Drake's case... raises questions about double standards... Several top officials accused of similar misdeeds have not faced such serious charges. John Deutch, the former C.I.A. director, and Alberto Gonzales, the former Attorney General, both faced much less stringent punishment after taking classified documents home without authorization.” Drake told 60 minutes the NSA could have prevented 9/11and that afterwards it abandoned privacy protections and began squandering taxpayer money
