The big morning news appears to be a round of co-ordinated attacks and suicide bombings in Afghanistan, where a hotel and foreign embassies in Kabul have been hit.
No local angle, other than Arkansas's shared investment in life and treasure in this unending conflict. But I have to note that the Taliban apparently has a spokesman and announces its news developments, such as sneak attacks, via text message and Twitter. #quagmire
