What We're Reading

In his first public comments about the aftermath of Iran’s disputed elections, supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denied claims of a rigged election, called directly for an end to protests, and warned protestors to keep off the streets. He accused “evil” Western nations, particularly Britain and the United States, of showing “enmity” toward the Islamic Republic system, and rejected American officials’ remarks about human rights as unacceptable. Iranian paramilitaries vowed a public crackdown

The House and Senate passed the FY09 supplemental war-spending bill. The $106b bill includes funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, critical IMF funding and programs for pandemic flu preparedness, and restores full payment of American dues to the United Nations. Congress denied requests for funding to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

An aide close to Pakistan’s Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud confirmed reports that Mehsud was behind the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto

Members of Obama’s national security team determined that success in Afghanistan requires a total overhaul of the American approach to development. They hope to shift away from Bush-era policies that focused on free-market reform and discrete success stories, and instead implement broader initiatives aimed at improving the lives of as many Afghans as possible

Congress should create an independent blue-ribbon panel or similar body to investigate a host of previously unreviewable activities of the Bush administration, including its detention, interrogation and surveillance programs. Only by chronicling and confronting the past in a comprehensive, bipartisan fashion can we reclaim our moral authority and establish a credible path forward to meet the complex challenges of a post-Sept. 11 world. replica rolex
