Monday Round-Up

  • Happy Health Care Reform Day. Last night, the House passed both the Senate Health Care Reform Bill and a Reconciliation Bill. Meanwhile, a Thomson Reuters report finds that, despite the Great Recession, Healthcare costs increased last year.
  • Jane Mayer takes on Marc Thiessen's new book in the New Yorker. We've addressed Thiessen here and here recently.
  • The internationally supported Transitional Federal Government reiterated its now stale vow to launch an offensive and take control of Somalia.
  • The Times Online reports that Iran is training Afghan Taliban fighters in small unit tactics. If true, this is notable because Iran initially supported US/NATO intervention in Afghanistan.
