MIDDLE EAST:

Marc Champion: "U.S. aircraft could soon be conducting strikes to provide close support to Iranian special forces in Iraq. It may be confusing, but it's not as crazy as it sounds." Read more 

Stephen L. Carter: What's most striking about President Barack Obama's remarks on Iraq yesterday afternoon in the Rose Garden "is what he didn't say. ... By being careful to rule out 'troops' in 'combat' (rather than, for example, 'military action'), he left open the possibility of air attacks to slow the rebel advance." Read more  

RE-VIEW: Maria LaMagna: "This was the week of Eric Cantor. Once we stopped pretending we knew what his defeat meant, we could focus on pretending we watch soccer year-round and could name even one person on Team USA." Read more

FOOD: James Greiff: "The organic-food industry has come a long way since the days of the back-to-the-earth movement. It is a big, profitable and growing business. Big Food noticed this a long time ago.
