Here we go again. Top-tier debate tonight on Fox Business Network.

If you don’t have cable, the NYT has provided a list of other options available.

What to look for? Other than Trump-Cruz, heck if I know. I imagine hope this evening will be the last hurrah for a number of contenders. You know who they are. And then we can really start to get down to it.

Obama and Kerry on Iran Actions: Thanks, Iran!

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:36 am

So Iran took pictures of our sailors in a posture of submission and distributed them throughout the world — and forced a female sailor to wear a hijab. Verdict of Obama and Kerry: success! Thank you so much, Iranians — and, once again, we are so, very, very sorry!

If you publicly put yourself in a position where you absolutely can’t break a deal with a bad actor, don’t be surprised when the bad actor pushes you around a little.

P.S. As some have noted, publishing the photos violates the Geneva Convention. Of course, it’s not like we didn’t do the same when we captured Taliban in the Afghanistan war.
