  • The frustrations of allied warfare _ al-Qaida-style

    If President Barack Obama or his predecessor thought fighting a war with coalition partners was hard, they might consider Osama bin Laden's frustrations. Among documents gathered from his compound in Pakistan after U.S. Navy SEALs stormed the building and shot him to death is a lengthy complaint by the al-Qaida leader about working with Arabs, Uzbeks, Turks, "Russians of all kinds," Germans and others in his global jihad. Broadly, the dozens of documents released Wednesday by the Obama administration portray bin Laden as a leader cut off from his underlings, disappointed by their failures, beset by their complaints and regretting years of separation from much of his family.

    After building an 18-point lead early in the fourth quarter, the Cleveland Cavaliers nearly blew their Game 1 win over the Atlanta Hawks. While the Hawks are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA and put the clamps on the Cavs' offense in the midst of J.R. Smith's explosion from three-point range, a big part of the Cavs' problems was LeBron James' stagnant offense. This has been a theme throughout the playoffs: With Kevin Love out for the season and Kyrie Irving hobbled, LeBron is forcing isolations — one-on-one plays with no ball movement — and it's crippling Cleveland's offense.
