President Obama's foreign policy speech was stopped multiple times by Code Pink heckling, and Lois Lerner was suspended from the her position at the IRS. On the international stage, two men in the United Kingdom murdered a soldier in the streets of London. Here's a recap, or wrap, of the week that was from The Washington Times.
Virginia Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly said the media has no business using the word "scandal" to describe the ongoing challenges to truth that are beating down the White House, the president and his administration these past weeks.

Donald H. Rumsfeld has created considerable buzz with his book "Rumsfeld's Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life," which includes 400 advisories for those who would be leaders. Among those rules: American is not what's wrong with the world. If you expect people to be on the landing, include them in the takeoff. If you're coasting, you're going downhill.
The attack that killed an off-duty soldier in London this week appears, like the Boston Marathon bombing, to have been the work of home-grown, "lone-wolf" extremists, underlining the very different kind of threat posed by al Qaeda now that its leadership has largely been destroyed and its ideology of global jihad left largely in the hands of individuals and small groups all over the world.
