Extending the blue down to Woodbridge is still a thing that is being pushed. I doubt it will go away.

So WMATA doesn't think it's necessary to run the Blue Line—the line that goes to Arlington Cemetery—on Veteran's Day. That candy-cane strip is a shuttle they're running from DCA instead. So they're making everyone coming from the north first go to L'Enfant to Pentagon, then switch to a train to Arlington Cemetery.

Oh, and plenty of people work on federal holidays like Veteran's Day.

Imo I think the entire blue line will be shut down someday and Arlington Cemetery Station will close. It has the 3rd lowest ridership of any station in the system. Running three lines down one section of track isn't workable. The Yellow line works pretty well as an alternative. It would make a few people's commutes a bit longer. Maybe in 3267 when the Georgetown tunnel is completed and there's a new crosstown line or a circular line we'll see it again.

However Mr Obama spurned the advice to put "skin in the game" in Syria – in the face of a growing body of evidence – because it did not fit with the political narrative that he was spinning the America public.

Go back to May 2013 when Mr Obama gave a speech effectively declaring the end to the War on Terror, when – as we now know – it was far from over. “We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us,” warned Mr Obama in a speech that now looks as foolish as George W Bush's "Mission Accomplished" moment.

No he didn't. In that speech he clearly recognized the continued presence of Al Qaeda affiliates and other such groups throughout the Middle East, and he tried to bomb Syria.
