An explosive week for Israel and Gaza. President Obama, home from Asia. Lawmakers on the fiscal cliff. Our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines.
It was the week - the year - that Black Friday invaded Thanksgiving Thursday. We’re still digesting that.
Elsewhere this week, beyond the malls, all kinds of news. Rockets, missiles, raining into and out of Gaza. Then a truce, brokered in Egypt. No Israeli invasion, and an “Iron Dome” of anti-missile defense that worked pretty well.
President Obama to Asia and back. Mission to Burma.
Lots of maneuvering over the fiscal cliff. John Boehner says Obamacare must be on the cliff, too. Twinkies in trouble.
