An invisible assailant had invaded the bodies of Romo and his two kids, attacking their bones, brains and nerves.  They were contaminated with lead. And it came from an unexpected place.

Dozens killed in attack on Egypt army post

Egyptian army post attackedAn attack on an army checkpoint in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Friday killed at least 25 people, according to state media, making it one of the deadliest attacks on security forces since violence spiked following the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi last year.

Two senior military officials said a suicide bomber rammed his vehicle into the checkpoint at Karm al-Qawadeis, located in the peninsula’s north. But a top military official contradicted those claims, saying the checkpoint was struck by a mortar round and rocket-propelled grenades, which hit a tank carrying explosives and ammunition, which caused a secondary explosion. A fourth official confirmed that account but said a suicide bomber also targeted the post.

Why American Exceptionalism Is Inherently Immoral

AmericaThe origins of the phrase “American exceptionalism” are not especially obscure. The French sociologist Alexis de Tocqueville, observing this country in the 1830s, said that Americans seemed exceptional in valuing practical attainments almost to the exclusion of the arts and sciences. The Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, on hearing a report by the American Communist Party that workers in the United States in 1929 were not ready for revolution, denounced “the heresy of American exceptionalism.”

In 1996, the political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset took those hints from Tocqueville and Stalin and added some of his own to produce his book American Exceptionalism: A Double-Edged Sword. The virtues of American society, for Lipset -- our individualism, hostility to state action, and propensity for ad hoc problem-solving -- themselves stood in the way of a lasting and prudent consensus in the conduct of American politics.

In Iraq, Blackwater verdict provides no relief from bitterness

Blackwater murdersLike most Iraqis, Ali Abbas Mahmoud didn’t know when he awoke Thursday that a jury in Washington had found four former Blackwater security guards guilty the previous day in one of the most infamous episodes of the U.S.-led occupation.
