The Kurdish uprising in Syria has apparently sucked in an American delegation sent to the area, to "mediate". They're reportedly meeting with personal representatives of Assad in the area. The Syrians have sealed the border with Iraq, and there's real danger of the Iraqi Kurdish militia pouring over the border in defense of the Syrian Kurds, or possibly just in an excess of filial feeling. As of this writing, the only American or international outlets even mentioning the situation are the Contra Costa Times and the Miami Herald. What the hell, people!
