The Short List

  • SecDef Robert Gates has proposed $100 billion in savings from the Pentagon budget.

  • The Congressional Budget Office preliminarily projects that a repeal of the Health Care Bill would add $145 billion to the federal deficit between 2012 and 2019.  Speaker Boehner disagrees with their math.

  • Cote d'Ivoire's post-election troubles look to spillover into Liberia.  Meanwhile president-elect Alassane Ouattara remains holed up at Hotel du Golf.

  • Recently retired Mossad Chief Meir Dagan says Iran won't become a nuclear power until 2015.
