The Short List - March 9, 2011

  • An update from Libya.  Pro-Qaddafi forces continue to attack rebel elements, while the broader world wonders what to do.

  • Rep. Peter King is set to hold hearings tomorrow entitled "The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community's Response."  Rep. King has promised they hearings will be fair, and that he seeks to encourage members of the Muslim community to cooperate with law enforcement.  Japanese Americans have come out against the hearing, harkening back to the internment of their communities during World War II.  Rep. King's consideration of radicalized Muslims stands in stark contrast to his support of the IRA during the Troubles.

  • Police loyal to out-voted President Gbagbo killed four demonstrators in Abidjan, Ivory Coast yesterday.

  • Rep. Michele Bachmann, liar.

  • A new version of the Bible will be released this week.
