Late summer every year is a time when official Washington goes on vacation and so the news business also tends to relax a bit. But lots of big things can happen in August and this year is no exception.
Exhibit number one is the good news that The Global War On Terror is now over.
Of course, the bad news is that the good guys lost.
September will have to be a ding-dong dilly of a doozy to top losing a war in August.
