WaPo. If those concrete decoys had been robots, everything would have been fine.
The New Statesman
WaPo. With a surface-to-air missile. I wonder where they got it from?
South China Morning Post
The Wire. “Aadhaar” is India’s universal ID system; see NC here.
New Cold War
TRNN. Lol no.
Brietbart. I almost never link to Breitbart, but this is at least fun. Especially #16.
Marcy Wheeler, HuffPo (Kokuanani).
NYT. Lambert here: The “pillar of society” headline is for a news story, not an Op-Ed, mind you. And nobody who watched Obama militarize the police and orchestrate a 17-city paramilitary crackdown on Occupy should be surprised that these are liberal Democrat views.
Daily Beast. Yves: “Snowden here is explicitly rejecting the idea that the intelligence agencies are democratically accountable and can have their decisions over-ridden. What he did is in no way analogous to elected officials in an oversight capacity taking action.”
Eric Posner, Foreign Policy. IOW, a second .
The Saker (KW).
Wired (Re Silc). Yves: “I happen to know people who are working directly on the concussion issue. This is vaporware of the worst kind.”

James Kwak, Baseline Scenario. “All these moderate Democrat congressional hopefuls (who keep calling me to ask for thousands of dollars without having the faintest idea what I believe in)…” Thousands of dollars? Really?
Guardian (JT McPhee).
