I am going to be very busy later in the day so I thought I’d put the Friday thread a bit earlier than normal.
Here are some stories of note to start discussion:
- A military judge at Guantanamo Bay on Thursday rejected President Barack Obama’s request to suspend the trial of a Saudi accused in the 2000 attack on the USS Cole, the Pentagon said.
- Afghanistan on Thursday delayed its second ever presidential election three months to August 20, expressing hope that extra US troops could ease the worst violence the country has seen in eight years. Could this be related to the change in support from Obama’s administration?
- Researchers at the University of Nottingham have determined that men who masturbate often in their 20s and 30s are far more prone to developing prostate cancer. EEK!
I know which story has me worried.
