Taliban attacks Kabul. Dexter Filkins, NYT. Interesting that "Monday's gun battle was notable for the absence of American soldiers: a small group of commandos from New Zealand were the only Western soldiers on the scene."

Wake-up call for Obama. Robert Kuttner, Huffington Post. A liberal perspective on what went wrong. I agree with Kuttner that "Deferring to the House and Senate was fine up to a point, but this was an issue where the president needed to lead as only presidents can--in order to frame the debate and define the stakes." The rest of Kuttner's argument is more debatable, but interesting.

The Guantanamo "suicides". Scott Horton, Harper's (thanks, Browser)

At the laundromat. NR Kleinfield, NYT (ditto)

Moscow's stray dogs. Susanne Sternthal, FT
