Welcome to a holiday edition of Marsh Musings. We hope you and yours have been enjoying the holidays as much as we have. The holiday season is surrounded by traditions, family gatherings, heaps of delicious, unhealthy food, and of course, the creation of new memories.

The woman turned out to be the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US and the story was false, but it was enough to turn US opposition in favor of an attack.
