White House grapples with fraught terrorism language

President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Friday, Jan. 30, 2015. Twice this month, the White House has publicly grappled with the politically fraught language of terrorism. In the days after a deadly terror spree in Paris, President Barack Obama was criticized for purposely avoiding calling the attacks an example of “Islamic extremism,” settling for the more generic “violent extremism.” This week, the White House struggled to explain why the administration sometimes classifies the Afghan Taliban as a terrorist organization _ and sometimes does not. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)WASHINGTON (AP) — Twice this month, the White House has publicly grappled with the politically fraught language of terrorism.

U.S. must target currency manipulation in trade deals: senator

Senator Hatch questions witnesses during testimony at the Senate Finance Committee in WashingtonThe Obama administration must insist that U.S. trading partners pledge not to manipulate currencies when negotiating trade deals, the Senate Committee on Finance chairman said on Friday. In a speech laying out his conditions for supporting trade deals, Republican Orrin Hatch said addressing currency concerns was key to winning lawmakers' support for a bill to fast-track trade agreements through Congress, and deals such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. "The administration must engage much more effectively with Congress on this issue if they want to receive strong support for TPA (trade promotion authority) and any subsequent trade agreements." Lawmakers from both parties are pushing the U.S. administration to take a stronger stand against trading partners which seek to gain an edge with a weaker currency, which makes their exports cheaper.
