Bush begins third week in hospital
Former President George H.W. Bush remains in stable condition in his third week of hospitalization in Houston for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. Methodist Hospital spokesman George Kovacik said there was no change in the 88-year-old Bush’s condition Sunday. Doctors have said over the past several days that the 41st president continues to improve but they are in no hurry to release him.
An attorney for a Southern California terror suspect is questioning authorities’ handling of his client, who had injuries to his face and head when he was turned over to the FBI by U.S. military officials in Afghanistan. Lawyer Jeffrey Aaron said that when Sohiel Omar Kabir arrived in California last week he had a broken facial bone, lacerations and was suffering from memory loss. Kabir, a U.S. citizen, is the suspected ringleader of a plot to kill Americans and bomb military bases overseas. He and three other defendants have pleaded not guilty in federal court.
