News of note

Hamas committed a terrorist attack against a hotel full of Israeli tourists in Egypt. At least 35 people are dead. The Egyptian government's handling of the situation is novel: not only did they try to prevent injured people from leaving without their (buried in rubble) passports, they refused to let in medical airlifts and rescue personnel. For an hour. The Israeli recovery teams, who train for this stuff constantly, still have not been let in.

Meanwhile, the most fascinating aspects of the just-released Duelfer report are getting little press. See here and here.
