Disturbing odd trends of the day: Iraqis murdered in Libya, Finns fighting in Syria, and DIA former Soviet states job open

Someone is killing Iraqi professors working in Libya. Then there are the Finnish jihadists in Syria.

Can’t we all just get along?

In other weird news, the job of overseeing Eurasia military intelligence (that is, former Soviet states) is open at DIA. Interesting time to have that job vacant. A friend asks, “I wonder if the guy was planning on leaving, or if he made the wrong call on Ukraine and was held to account.”
