  • President Obama gave his State of the Union address last night.  NYT gives its take, as does WaPo and DCExile.

  • Egpyt's government has banned further protests after thousands took the the streets on Tuesday.  NYT considers how events in Tunisia, Lebanon, and Egypt have scrambled U.S. foreign policy.

  • Russia's upper house passed the New START Treaty be convincing margins.

  • A lawsuit against Blackwater (now Xe Services) has been dropped.
