        The President says the 2 parties are not miles apart as he put out plenty of ways out of this mass, but the deadline is only 4 days off.
        “If we don’t come to an agreement, we could lose our country’s triple-A credit rating, not because we didn’t have the capacity to pay our bills. We do. But because we didn’t have a triple-A political system to match.”
        As the President spoke2 House and Senate leaders work down competing bills, the parties will continue working through the weekend. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, the White House.
        Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell accuses Democrats3 of trying to build up opposition4 to the House Republican plan to win his words, keep the crisis alive.
        “Speaker Boehner’s been doing the hard work of governing, working day and night to put together a bill that can actually pass the House of Representatives and end this crisis now. And he should be commended for his efforts. What about here in the Senate? Well the contrast couldn’t be starker5.”
        House speaker Boehner reworked his plan in an attempt to win over Conservatives if he could plan the proposal did make deep enough cuts. The main change is a provisional ties in additionally increased the debt ceiling of Congressional approval of balanced budget manmade constitution. The House is expected to vote on the revised plan tonight.
        Bells tore for Bano Rashid, then 18-year-old Muslim girl killed in last week’s massacre6 in Norway. Rashid’s funeral was the first of those to be held for the 77 people killed when the self-confessed attacker Ander Behring Breivik opened fire at the youth camp. Earlier he had bombed Oslo’s government district. The government says it is investigating police’s response to the terrorist attack.

        More heavy fighting is reported out of Somalia’s capital after what the authorities called a threat to emergency relief aid. Airlift into the trouble in the poor African nation. NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton reports the Somalia soldiers backed by African Union peacekeepers clashed with Islamist militants11.
        The African peacekeepers say they seized territory in Mogadishu under the control of al-Qaeda linked al-Shabab insurgents12 after they apparently13 threaten to displace people’s camps in the Somalia capital. The African Union and the fragile western-backed transitional government say the military strike willing to prove security and allow aid agencies to deliver food to people who fled drought, famine and conflict in other parts of Somalia. The fighting on Thursday came a day after the first airlift into Mogadishu by the UN World Food Program. Al-Shabab has banned the WFP from its zones saying it promotes a western agenda.
