The Short List - August 29, 2011

International
Domestic
  • The East Coast is trying to dust itself off after Hurricane Irene lashed the coastline and point further inland.  there are 24 deaths reportedly linked to Irene, but the damage and devastation have thankfully been far less then originally predicted.

  • Former President George W. Bush was interview by National Geographic about 9/11 and the interview premiered last night.  It will re-air tonight at 9pm ET and this editor strongly recommends you watch.  I'm also planning a commentary to post today or tomorrow.

  • Meanwhile, Dick Cheney has a book coming out that he believes will have "heads exploding" in DC.  Former Secretary of State Colin Powell took his tarnished credibility to Face the Nation yesterday to dispute several of the claims Cheney makes in the book In My Time.  Your editor takes that swipe as someone who believed going to Iraq was the right decision because of Sec. Powell's presentation to the UN Security Council.
