California got its man while weary passengers aboard the crippled Carnival Triumph finally made it back to port. In Washington, the White House revealed that President Obama made no phone calls on the night of the Benghazi terror attack, while Sen. Marco Rubio stole the spotlight on State of the Union night. Here's a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times.
Some warriors inside the Pentagon are reacting with amusement and anger over outgoing Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta's decision to create a prestigious heroism medal for cyber and drone combatants who sit inside stations outside a war zone.

A decorated Green Beret who returned from his fifth deployment to Afghanistan last summer died Tuesday trying to rescue his two young daughters from their burning home near Fort Bragg. The girls were also killed in the blaze.

"The reality for all armies is that governments cannot afford to purchase a perfect assault rifle. It is simply cost-prohibitive," said an Army Green Beret who is not authorized to speak on the record. "For its cost, I consider the M4 to be an amazing assault rifle. Between the M16 and M4, I've carried weapons from that family for nearly 30 years and would not trade them for any other fielded families of assault rifles."
"The first thing you do back at camp is clean the gun," he said.
