Struggles With Infighting » As an October 2006 bombing goes unsolved -- a former U.N. weapons specialist accused of attempting to murder his colleague -- hundreds of pages of confidential U.N. documents reviewed by The Washington Post, as well as interviews with those involved in the incident, demonstrate how U.N. agencies turned against each other as they struggled to determine who was responsible for the explosion. — Washington Post

Another Caught in NY Pension Probe » The New York attorney general is expected to announce soon that an associate of Hank Morris, the indicted political adviser at the center of New York's "pay to play" pension probe, has pleaded guilty to securities fraud and is cooperating with the investigation, according to people familiar with the matter. — Wall Street Journal ($)

Murtha's Name-Dropping Nephew » Robert C. Murtha Jr. maintains that his uncle, Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.), has played no role in his defense-related work. But documents show Robert Murtha mentioning his influential family connection as leverage in his business dealings and holding unusual power with the military. — Washington Post

Obama's Antitrust Crackdown » Christine Varney, head of the antitrust division at the Justice Department, announced that the agency would revoke a 2008 report that made it difficult to pursue antitrust cases against corporations, saying the guidelines and lax enforcement of the past decade helped contribute to the economic crisis. — Washington Post
