Top 4 Political Stories of the Day

President Barack Obama has expressed concern about reported Russian military movement inside crisis-torn Ukraine and warned of consequences. He said "We are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the Russian Federation inside of Ukraine. Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing." "The United States will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine." The National Archives plans to release about 4,000 pages of previously confidential documents involving former President Bill Clinton's administration. Some of the topics include the president's health care task force and the 9/11 Commission Report. The papers could shed light on Clinton's presidency and provide insight into a future presidential candidate: former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. Other topics include national security and Rwanda. There also are records from Clinton speechwriters. The records are being made available through the Clinton Presidential Library. The documents are expected to include confidential communications between the former president and his advisers. State media said the Syrian air force raided outskirts of Lebanon's Bekaa town Friday morning but no casualties were reported. Syrian jets launched four air-ground missiles on the Kherbet Younin region on the outskirts of Arsal, which lies on the eastern border of Lebanon and has about 50 km long border with Syria, Xinhua reported. On several occasions, Arsal has been the target of the Syrian air force. The last raid was carried out last December when the Lebanese army anti-aircraft units fired for the first time against the Syrian jets. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa Friday said he is "uncomfortable" with the US-led resolution to be presented at the UN Human Rights Council and believes there should be no resolution at all. The Sri Lankan government faces a US-led resolution before the UNHRC next month for failing to implement adequate reconciliation measures and investigate allegations of war crimes. The resolution, the third consecutive one faced by the government, insists that Sri Lanka's human rights record has failed to improve since the conflict between the government and the Liberation Tamil Tigers of Eelam ended in 2009.
