  • Democrats have been complaining for, oh, at least four years that the US is "taking its eye off the ball" in Afghanistan, and now military officials agree. They are calling for more troops in the region, lest things go even more hell-in-a-handbasket-y. [Washington Post]
  • Glamorous fugitive financier Samuel Israel spent 23 days on the lam hanging out in an RV park in Massachusetts. [Wall Street Journal]
  • The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters that an Israeli airstrike on Iran would be bad for the US. "Opening up a third front right now would be extremely stressful for us," he said. Has he told Bush any of this? [Los Angeles Times]
  • A total of 15 hostages were freed from the Colomian rebel group FARC, and the details are pretty dramatic. [New York Times]
