The front page: Elections in Mosul and a Russian spy

Friday, January 30, 2009

As we looked over the front page of today's New York Times, two stories caught our eye. The first, Iraqi Elections Face Crucial Test in Violent Mosul by Ian Fisher discusses how national politics in Iraq are actually local. The second, U.S. Says Jailed C.I.A. Mole Kept Spying for Russia by Eric Lichtblau is a fascinating account of a former CIA officer who never stopped being a Russian spy despite being in prison. Both authors join us today.
