Two stories. One's getting some attention today, the other's flown largely beneath the radar.

This is a hot topic …

A man sentenced to death in Kuwait for the 1983 bombings of the U.S. and French embassies now sits in Iraq's parliament as a member of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's ruling coalition, according to U.S. military intelligence.

Less so, is this story …
