Rusty / The Jawa Report:
Uh, About that "Leak" That Burned Our al Qaeda Intel  —  I know what the NY Sun and Washington Post are saying about a major source of intel being burned by a leak, but it just isn't so.  Rita Katz and the SITE Institute do a great job, but attributing the interception of this video to them is just false.

Atrios / Eschaton:
Fake News Event of the Day  —  CNN's programming is really pretty weird.  I generally don't catch any of the morning show, but between that and the Situation Room it seems that every day is dominated by some fake news event - a school lockdown, a missing child, a truck accident …
Jeff G. / protein wisdom:
"Ward Churchill to teach unsanctioned course on CU campus"  —  Dangerous.  Anti-establishment.  Edgy: … If Churchill's special brand of anti-American, white guilt-fueled BDS is strong enough to get college students to attend extra classes — for which they'll receive no credit …
