We are # We have released more details on Mayor Pete Buttigieg's announcement for Sunday, April 14 (see Calendar of Events to Plan a Vacation or Search for Seasonal Events, Concerts and Activities in Phoenix). This is a special event and a ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. The events surrounding this event and the people involved have been a source of fascination for over a century.

The events that have taken place since then also reveal facts that will fascinate you, but not necessarily in the good sense of the word.

After the infamous Benghazi report, Fager expressed fatalism in the air: "We have crossed the Rubicon," he told his colleagues. Logan went straight into the political fray, avoiding it and consulting with former U.S. Ambassador to Libya John F. Kelly, who once met with him in Afghanistan and briefed him on the incident. President Barack Obama focused the fight against IS militants, and Obama agreed to send humanitarian aid and pledged to provide military supplies and support during the April 2019 holiday. Banks in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh will be closed on 13 April (Baisakhi and Cheiraoba) and banks in J & K, Ladakha and Tripura will be closed on 14 April and 15 April respectively, as part of ongoing military operations against the Islamic State.

After the Benghazi report, the problems with its sources were glaring - the kind that should have raised red flags. Fager ordered an internal investigation to clear the air from what he called a "segment" on "Who's Who" in that segment.

The scandal is a strangely accurate echo of Rathergate, when Dan Rather used memos of dubious provenance for his coverage of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012. He handed memos on the attack that killed 270 people to the FBI, CIA, National Security Council and White House.

When American bombs rained down on Iraq, she was surprised to see Lara Logan in the lobby of the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad. CBS employees wondered why she got involved with a mysterious entrepreneur who turned out to be a government propagandist. Two of his fixers had been smuggled across the border into Iraq at the start of the war.

Logan and her crew were forbidden to join the network, but she was eager to return before the war began, so she and her agents decided to make it to Baghdad. Just days after the American invasion, Logan was forced to leave Baghdad, and only after her departure was she flown back to Cairo to resist the pressure to cover Tahrir Square, which was now a powerful 24-hour spectacle.

None other than the 60 Minutes correspondent was allowed to follow the story of Benghazi. In her acceptance speech, Logan referenced her Benghazi report when presenting the Gilda Radner Courage Award she received.

British special forces, hired by a security firm called the Pilgrims Group, which guards the CBS office in Baghdad and takes them to and from their home in New York City, have traveled extensively in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Time and CNN correspondent known for her fearless reporting began her career as a member of the US Army Special Forces. When Al Qaeda attacked the New Yorkers in 2001, triggering the invasion of Afghanistan, she realized that this would be the story of her career. It was Bush's war that made her a journalist, but what shaped Logan about that person was a more intimate conflict.

When the war finally ended, the 2012 Benghazi attack became the biggest journalistic story of the year and the biggest journalistic story that brought down presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The team arrived there the day after the September 11, 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three others. However, the Marines had to wait six hours for an Air Force C-130 to arrive from Spain and then arrive on the ground late.

Colleagues, including former 60 Minutes co-hosts Steve Doocy and Bob Schieffer, spoke apoplectically about the image damage for "60 Minutes." A founding member of the 45-year-old program, who left last fall, went out and called for the firing of CBS News executive producer John Logan and the ouster of his staff.

Ortiz concluded that Logan's speech in Chicago was inconsistent with CBS News standards and that the section should have been about Al Qaeda propagating the attack. When the story of the Abu Ghraib mistreatment emerged, Logan tried to cover it up but was told to resign - because it was "beyond" the story.

The Benghazi committee's report also raised questions about how quickly the military can move, noting that at that point - Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered a "fast train" to deploy, Stevens was missing and another American, Sean Smith, was dead. The Ministry of Defence has since made significant changes to improve its response to crises, department spokesman Gordon Trowbridge said on Tuesday. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said the fact that the FAST Marines had to appear in their uniforms four times before the plane took off for Libya did not affect the decision by the U.S. Air Force or the Defense Department's Special Operations Command to send aid to Benghazi. Marines, who can be deployed to embassies and consulates at any time in times of crisis, had to change their uniforms "four times" before the Libya operation, the report said.
