The news feed is light tonight, for some reason.
The most significant event of the day is, of course, the certification of the election of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi (or Mursi, depending on who is spelling it) as president of Egypt. President Obama sent his congratulations and promises of assistance to the new president, and Mr. Morsi has vowed to uphold Egypt’s international obligations, which most people assume to mean the 1979 peace treaty with Israel.
In other news, Turkey summoned its NATO allies for talks to discuss the downing of a Turkish military jet by Syria over Syrian coastal waters.
