Human Rights Watch documents Iraqi security forces' execution of Sunni prisoners, Israel continues to pummel Gaza, at least 23 Ukrainians killed in clashes with pro-Russian rebels, LeBron James is going back to, gasp, Cleveland, and did you hear about the heroin caper at the Chuck E. Cheese? Happy Friday.

Two separate groups were involved in two different attacks in Benghazi, testimony suggests. Germany kicks U.S. spy chief out of country, Israel continues to bomb the hell out of Gaza, a compromise on the border crisis may be in the works, and believe it or not, alcohol may have been involved in middle school teacher twerking incident. Happy Thursday.

Newsy day at The Wire: Iraq's grand ayatollah hints not so subtly that Al-Maliki must go, U.S. copes with a border emergency, GOP congressmen spar with unflappable IRS commish, $40 million settlement reached in NYC jogger rape wrongful convictions, and you may enjoy what Rick Perry says now about his comments comparing homosexuality to alcoholism. Happy Friday!

Debbie Downer here! Top Benghazi suspect captured, atrocities in Iraq and Kenya, two deaths from twin tornadoes and a very odd grave robbery. Happy Tuesday.

After shocker upset, Eric Cantor will reportedly step down as House No. 2 next month. Extremists in Iraq expand from Mosul to Tikrit, Hagel clashes sharply with House members in Bergdahl hearing, and four strippers are accused of being very, very bad. Happy Wednesday.

D-Day remembered 70 years later, Boko Haram massacres 200 innocents, heavily armed man kills 3 Mounties in Canada, Obama makes no apologies for Bergdahl deal, and yes, Gwyneth Paltrow believes that mean words are harmful to water. Happy Thursday.

Belatedly, here's Part II of my blogiation on Winston Churchill, one in a series of profiles of bipolar people who made the world a more interesting place. I started this blog as part of a website to promote an as-yet unpublished book about my father, who is one of them. Sadly, 79-year-old Jerome David Kahler is in the hospital in dire condition, but I hope against hope that, like Winston, he lives to be 90.

Yes, I got the words "beware of giant vagina" in the headline of today's Wire column. You couldn't make this stuff up!

Obama putting only 300 pairs of boots on the ground in Iraq, where a fierce battle is still underway for a key refinery in the north. Kevin McCarthy of California is elected House GOP No. 2, Auschwitz guard with mild dementia faces deportation, and in other nudes, a naked sunbather causes a car crash. Happy Thursday.

World Cup time: There will be blood. Jihadis march on Baghdad, McCarthy poised to replace Cantor, Perry compares homosexuality to alcoholism and Kim Jong Number Un complains about bad weather forecasts. Happy Thursday.

Al-Qaida spinoff seizes control of Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq, friendly fire kills five Americans in Afghanistan, two dead in Oregon school shooting and Hillary has second thoughts about "dead broke" remark. Happy Tuesday.

Fascinating video by the Taliban of Bowe Bergdahl's handover -- a lot more than the U.S. would ever release. Plus: Russian jet buzzed U.S. spy plane, Mississippi primary goes to runoff but a tea party victory already, weird crime case involves strip poker, strangling and rape, in that order, and fake cop pulls over ... guess who.  Happy Wednesday.
