Just a short one tonight:

  • If you only click on one of these links, make it Johann Hari’s piece on his journeys with ex-jihadis. It’s not a quick read, but it’s an absolutely bloody glorious piece of journalism. (via Asquith)
  • Omar bin Laden pens an intimate portrait of his father. Yes, that one.
  • Evan Osnos wonders whether the Chinese will support tougher sanctions on Iran.
  • Charlie Brooker takes on tacky Christmas adverts.
  • Peter Beinart assesses President Obama’s trip to China and looks at how the US-China relationship has changes.
  • I may one day get around to reading & writing about Transform’s blueprint for regulating drugs, but until I do, here’s Pete Guither’s take.
  • In Mexico, murders of journalists have reached an all-time high.
