- Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet that's believed to have crossed into its airspace near the Syrian border; Russia says the act will have "serious consequences."
- Unfortunately, those consequences will probably be good news for ISIS.
- The "good" news is that, contra immediate Twitter hysteria, this is probably not going to lead to World War III—though it's worth asking what exactly that phrase means given the number of countries already involved in the Syrian conflict.
- President Obama noted during a press conference with Françis Hollande that the Statue of Liberty is pretty clear on the matter of U.S. policy toward refugees.
