Too much news

There is way too much going on today for a Saturday!
So I will quickly leave the stories for you to read rather than try to write about them myself.

Richard Miniter on those Imans on USAir. They’re full of crap.

Omar on the lack of coverage of the capture of the Baghdad Sniper.

Najmaldin Karim on the lack of Kurdish discussion or participation of the famous Iraq Study Group.

Abu Kais blogs the protests in Beruit.

Kim Murphy on the spy poisonings.

The Guardian on the disaster in the Philipines.
