Jennifer Parker / Political Punch:
Jarheads  —  In light of Tuzla-gate (catchy, no?), reporters are going over past statements by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, (and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois) to see if others don't stand more rigorous examination.  —  One that may get renewed scrutiny is a story she told “Women in Military Service” …

Iraqi Crackdown on Shiite Forces Sets Off Fighting  —  BAGHDAD — Heavy fighting broke out Tuesday in two of Iraq's largest cities, as Iraqi ground forces and helicopters mounted a huge operation to break the grip of the Shiite militias controlling Basra, and Iraqi forces clashed with militias in Baghdad.

Yuval Levin / The Corner:
Wright and Israel  —  This Trinity United Church of Christ newsletter (PDF link) from last June seems to be making the rounds in Jewish circles.  I have now had it e-mailed to me three times in the last 24 hours from friends who all more or less seem to have gotten it through their synagogues.
Jason Horowitz / New York Observer:
Wherefore, Gore?  Inconvenient Al Makes Party Wait  —  If He Gets in at All, His Part May Be Mr. Unity, After Last Primaries Done  —  Al Gore.  —  History may record that there were three distinct windows of opportunity for Al Gore to play a decisive role in this year's Democratic primary contest.
