It's looking a lot like pilot error. NTSB isn't saying for sure yet, but there's no reported or observed mechanical failure and the pilot only had 43 hours of flying time on the 777. "The plane was travelling 'significantly below' its intended speed and its crew tried to abort the landing just seconds before it hit the seawall in front of the runway."

Islamists attempted to storm the army barracks where former president Morsi is being held. Some people are dead (the number keeps changing), and the Muslim Brotherhood is calling for an uprising. The Muslim Brotherhood, as is classic for this type of thing, claims that they were engaged merely in peaceful prayer when they were shot at by the army.

Speaker Boehner continues to rake in big bucks for the GOP.
