US President Barack Obama and Russia's President Vladimir Putin shake hands while posing for a photo ahead of a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly at the United Nations headquarters on September 28, 2015 in New York.


Showdown: It was supposed to be Obama vs. Putin, but it turned into Obama vs. Putin/Xi/Rouhani/Castro. President Obama found his foreign policy under attack yesterday at theU.N.’s annual global meeting, which a U.S. president traditionally uses to command the spotlight. Obama made his speech, but then Putin spoke, proposing a coup against U.S. global leadership and seeking to wrest control of a coalition battling ISIS away from America’s grip. Chinese President Xi Jinping, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Cuban leader Raul Castro all made addresses questioning seven decades of U.S. global leadership.


Breakdown: The war in Afghanistan may no longer be front and center, but that doesn’t mean the country is close to being peaceful. The government there is still fighting the Taliban, which had captured the provincial capital of Kunduz. A spokesman for Afghanistan’s interior ministry confirmed late yesterday the city had fallen into “the hand of enemies.” But early this morning the word out of the country was that Afghan troops had already begun a counteroffensive to retake the city.


Takedown: Here’s a lawsuit that’s going to raise some eyebrows. The daughter of Paul Walker has sued Porsche, claiming the sports car Walker was killed in had multiple design flaws. Walker, you may remember, died in a car crash in 2013. A police investigation said it was speed that killed the “Fast & Furious” star. But the suit says the car — a Porsche Carrera GT — “lacked safety features … found on well-designed racing cars” and was so dangerous it “doesn’t belong on the street.” Porsche said it hasn’t seen the lawsuit yet, so it wouldn’t comment on specifics. The rest of us are left wondering what kind of safety features would help someone survive a 90 mph crash.
