U.S. in the news

Mar 24, 2014

According to Julian Barnes, Adam Entous, and Siobhan Gorman at the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Scurries to Shore Up Spying on Russia. Matthew Rose there said, “One legacy of Crimea: There are limits to U.S. eavesdropping prowess.” Colleague Aaron Zitner had another thought: “Unexplored in this great piece on Russia evading U.S. eavesdropping: Did Snowden or his documents help the Russians?” Grant Slater pointed out, “They didn't know much more than I learned from Twitter.”

Meanwhile, the New York Times’ Peter Baker tells us of 3 Presidents and a Riddle Named Putin. Danielle Ivory there said, “US presidents come and go, but Putin remains (and confounds them all). An interesting tale.” Josh Dawsey at the Wall Street Journal called it “a look at how the Kremlin's chief bedevils leaders of the U.S.”

And in mostly crazy things, Politico’s Stephanie Simon says Taxpayers fund creationism in the classroom. Libby A. Nelson there urged, “Worth reading @StephanieSimon_'s special report on creationism at voucher-supported private schools.” Sherman Frederick said, “A liberal conceit: Government must control private-school curriculum. #creationism.” Freelancer Alexander Russo added, “14 states spending nearly $1B for private school tuition, says Politico's @StephanieSimon_. More coming. Alarmed?”
