What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • A bad day for NATO in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Der Spiegel has translated a German-language piece released earlier this week detailing face-to-face US-Taliban negotiations ongoing in Germany.

  • Yet more indications that Sarah Palin will run for the 2012 GOP nomination.

  • Arab Spring: Following US urging, the UK offers $180 million in aid to Egypt and Tunisia to bolster their revolutions; and the fighting in Yemen got worse (again).

  • Pakistan has granted the CIA access to bin Laden's compound--demonstrating that US-Pakistan relations defy easy characterization.

  • While there were lots of superlatives regarding the length of Ratko Mladic's manhunt, after 17 years on the run, Bernard Munyagishari wanted by the ICTR for his role in the Rwandan genocide, was captured in the Democratic Republic of the Congo today.
