Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatars Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the grassroots level.
I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics, Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Fox News interview ends abruptly after author accuses channel of ‘operating as GOP wing’

Washington - An interview on Fox News Channel ended abruptly after an author accused the network of hyping the killing of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, attack and ‘operating as a wing of the Republican Party’.

The charges were made by military historian Thomas Ricks, a veteran newspaper reporter and author of ‘The General’, who went on Fox News to discuss the fallout from the Sept. 11 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

According to the New York Daily News, four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault, which has since been determined to have been a terrorist attack.

Republicans have tried to hold President Barack Obama’s ‘feet to the fire’ regarding what he may have known regarding the sequence of the deadly events, the report said.

Pressed on the Benghazi attack by host Jon Scott, Ricks said the attack had been turned into GOP ‘hype’.

Challenged on this claim, he continued by saying that “I think that the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox was operating as a wing of the Republican Party.”

At this point, Scott very quickly and very awkwardly ended the conversation, the report added.
