Top 3 Political Stories of the Day

Iran will target American aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf should a war between the two countries ever break out, the naval chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard warned Tuesday as the country completes work on a large-scale mock-up of a U.S. carrier. The remarks by Admiral Ali Fadavi, who heads the hard-line Guard's naval forces, were a marked contrast to moderate President Hassan Rouhani's recent outreach policies toward the West — a reminder of the competing viewpoints that exist at the highest levels within the Islamic Republic. Monica Lewinsky says there's no question her boss Bill Clinton "took advantage" of her when he was president. The former White House intern, now 40, writes about her life in the next issue of Vanity Fair magazine, out this month. In released excerpts, she says she's perhaps the first Internet scapegoat and wants to speak out on behalf of other victims of online humiliation. Lewinsky says, the abuse came afterward, when Clinton's inner circle tried to discredit her and his opponents used her as a pawn The four-day detention of Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has given a reality check to the nationalist party's ambition of entering government in the Irish republic, and to a new generation of activists trying to win over skeptical voters. His arrest last week and subsequent release by Northern Ireland police investigating a 1972 abduction and murder has complicated election campaigning south of the border by younger Sinn Fein politicians. It has also raised the question of how much longer Adams, a dominant figure in Sinn Fein for decades, can lead the party.
