(CNN) – At Tuesday's All-Star game in Minnesota, it will be hard not to think of Padre great Tony Gwynn.
He was an all star 15 times, a man who lived to play and teach and talk baseball, and a man who died way too early because of a habit associated with it - chewing tobacco, a known cause of cancer.
(CNN) – Today, 40 undocumented immigrants, 18 mothers and 22 children, are back in the country of Honduras, after being apprehended trying to cross the United States border.
Gaza City (CNN) - An Egypt-backed cease-fire between Israel and Hamas fell apart Tuesday as rocket attacks from Gaza were again answered by Israeli airstrikes.
The rocket attacks from Hamas militants in Gaza never ceased, Israeli officials said. For its part, Israel refrained from airstrikes for about six hours before announcing it was resuming them.
A CNN crew witnessed at least five Israeli strikes just as the announcement was made.
(CNN) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney said that the Bush administration left Iraq in reasonably good shape, and blamed President Barack Obama for not getting a security agreement from Iraqi leader Nouri al-Maliki to keep some U.S. troops there after 2011 to help ensure stability.
Sunni extremists have swept through parts of northern and central Iraq in recent weeks, exposing serious shortcomings in Iraqi security and governance. Obama has sent military advisers to assess the situation on the ground.
The debacle has opened another front for Republicans in criticism of Obama's foreign policy.
"Obama's failure to provide for a stay-behind force is what created the havoc we see in Iraq today," Cheney said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
