Things I'll be watching today

Of course, the US attorney thing is just getting weirder and wilder. Go to talkingpointsmemo.com for the best and must up-to-date info on that. (There's an excellent point made over there about the aide that's trying to plead the 5th.) Some of the posters at dKos are also spinning the story a bit.

The UK navy personnel in Iran thing could get ugly as well. I find it fascinating that a UK envoy has said that the arrests were legitimate, and that in light of the Khalid Sheik Mohammad torture induced confessions, it's amazing to see the powers that be say that any confession by the UK people is inadmissable due to "the circumstances"
Excerpt: They had confessed to being in Iranian waters, he said. But ex-Navy chief Admiral Sir Alan West said a confession in such circumstances meant "absolutely nothing".
he said, without even a hint of irony.

And if you want to brighten your day a bit, watch John Bolton getting nailed by the BBC.
