The Senate voted Wednesday to convict U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Louisiana on corruption and perjury charges, overcoming objections that it was ignoring precedent that protected officeholders from overzealous political prosecution.

It was also the first Senate impeachment trial since President Clinton stood accused of obstruction of justice and perjury in 1999.

KABUL, Afghanistan - Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. took over Sunday as the newest and probably last U.S. commander in Afghanistan, charged with ending America's longest war even as insurgents continue to challenge the U.S.-backed Afghan government. Dunford, a four-star Marine officer, arrives as the U.S.-led NATO coalition has closed three-quarters of its 800 bases and as it watches to see whether the Afghan security forces it trained can keep the Taliban insurgency at bay. A ceremony inside the coalition's heavily guarded compound in Kabul marked the end of the 19-month tenure of Gen. John R. Allen, whose command was marred by a rash of deadly "insider" attacks by Afghan forces against their U.S. and NATO trainers and by strained relations with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
