What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • A mixed one for Libyan rebels. On the one hand, foreign ministers met in London to discuss support for the rebels, resulting in envoys, promises of financing and even provision of arms. On the other hand, rebels were driven from Bin Jawad, Ras Lanuf, and potentially Brega, mere days after retaking those cities.

  • Syria's cabinet has resigned in what has become a familiar--if futile--tactic among Middle Eastern despots attempting to cling to power in the face of the Arab Spring.

  • BP may be subject to manslaughter charges arising from the blowout on Deepwater Horizon.

  • The government shutdown potentiality rears its ugly head once more.

  • Bachmann hedges.

  • Finally, the Guardian reports that there may have been a meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi.
