GIL TORREZ (Retired FBI special agent who now works as a terrorism and security analyst) A terrorist attack at Turkey's Istanbul Ataturk airport began with gunfire followed by explosions and the wail of ambulance sirens.

Turkish officials said 23 Turkish citizens and 13 foreign nationals including an Iranian and a Ukrainian were among the dead, the Associated Press reported.

Stamford GOP State Sen. TONY HWANG The majority of insurers who sell individual and small group employer plans in Connecticut have asked for double-digit increases for next year’s policies, with average increases as high as 28 percent among plans that cover thousands of workers and their families.

BRIAN GRAHAM (Political analyst and consultant from "Dixie Strategies") Hillary Clinton claimed Tuesday that the final report issued by the House Republican investigation into the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attack - in which Clinton is accused of knowingly misleading the American public - "had found nothing," and that it's time to "move on." The report released Tuesday morning pointedly blamed a "rusty bureaucratic process" for the Obama administration's slow-moving response the night of the attack.

MARIA LUCE (Parenting analyst, communications expert, public speaker, coach and mom. She started "The Empowered Mom" to create conversations and give parents more tools) American parents are less happy than their childless counterparts. And the parenthood "happiness gap" is greater in the United States than in 21 other countries studied, according to a briefing paper prepared for the Council on Contemporary Families. Researchers wrote they were astonished to discover "the negative effects of parenthood on happiness were entirely explained by the presence or absence of social policies allowing parents to better combine paid work with family obligations."
