Josh Rogin is on vacation for the next two days, but here’s what’s going on today:

  • Reuters reported Friday on a "behind-the-scenes tug-of-war" between CIA Director Leon Panetta and Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair. The reported rift has some speculating that "Blair may leave by year-end of sooner," according to the article, which seems poorly sourced. Other sources say it’s all much ado about nothing.
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is headed to Canada today for a meeting of G-8 foreign ministers. A separate meeting focused on the Artic will also be attended by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.
  • President Obama returns from his surprise trip to Afghanistan today, after which he’ll attend a 4 p.m. credentialing ceremony for foreign ambassadors.
  • Defense Secretary Robert Gates meets with Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada to discuss the controversy over a U.S. base in Okinawa. Okada will also meet with National Security Advisor James L. Jones and, in Ottawa, with Secretary Clinton.
