I'm going to list two. One is the Supreme Court case on the Voting Rights Act.
The other is another month of reduced casualties in Afghanistan. Only one coalition death in Afghanistan in February, an American; that means there have been 9 coalition deaths, 4 of them Americans, so far this year. Last year through February there had been 59 coalition troop deaths, including 42 Americans. Remember, fighting in Afghanistan is seasonal, so there's every reason to expect that casualties will rise in the spring. Still, it's a pretty dramatic drop, worth noting just for itself as well as what it suggests about the future.
What didn't matter? Oh, you knew I was going to say the Bob Woodward flap. You are correct.
That's what I have. What do you think mattered this week?
