Chile’s miners up and out. A halt to “Don’t ask, don’t tell.” And talking with the Taliban. It's our weekly news roundtable.
Newsapalooza this week. The Chilean miners, up and out and kissing everybody in sight. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” stopped in its tracks, for the moment anyway, by a judge in California.
It’s official: the U.S.-backed Afghan government in Kabul is talking to the Taliban about a settlement, and the U.S. is facilitating those talks. And home on the political range, midterm electioneering hits full swing, with Tea Partiers and Democrats going nose-to-nose in debates across the country. We listen in.
Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
