KCRW thought they had U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad all lined up to guest with Warren Olney on "To the Point" at 1 pm, but the station regrets to inform that he had to cancel. So forget the item in today's Morning Buzz.
* Meanwhile: El Segundo-based Pajamas Media is all over the Middle East situation, especially on its new Politics Central site. PJM founder Roger L. Simon interviewed the Israeli ambassador to the U.S. for a podcast, there are other podcasts up plus blog reports from across the region (and the usual blog-punditry.) It appears that Bill Bradley of New West Notes has signed up with Pajamas Media and that PJM has hired RSC Partners, the firm co-founded by BoifromTroy, for some PR help.
