Breathless (and apparently false — the only thing more useless than American MSM is Lebanese media for shit’s sake) reports of rape and other things aside – the Stevens assassination and attack on our embassies appear to be the very definition of a modern major clusterf*&k.

This RAF Kittyhawk P-40 was recently discovered in the Sahara Desert in Egypt 70 years after it, and its pilot Sgt. Dennis Copping, disappeared. From The Daily Mail:
