Two morning reads

Richard Fernandez, on "The Day Obama's Presidency Died." Maybe Benghazi is all he suggests, maybe not. But the core of the essay is a fascinating conjecture about the true strategy behind the administration's devotion to assassination as a tactic in the war against the jihad. That alone is worth reading, plus a perspective on the Battle of Midway that I had not known.

P.J. O'Rourke takes a hilarious tour of Russia's history of strategic, administrative, and cultural failure, in which we should take heart. In the long run.
