Matthew VanDyke, the self-styled "Arab Spring Freedom Fighter" from Baltimore, was a friend of the two American journalists who were beheaded by Islamic State militants. VanDyke met James Foley and Steven Sotloff during his travels in Libya, and it was Foley to whom he first confided what we all later came to learn - that VanDyke was neither a journalist nor a filmmaker when he was captured and held in a Libyan prison for six months in 2011. Instead, he had gone there to fight with the rebels who eventually overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Hollywood has come up with some fearsome swarms of monstrous villains -- think of the orcs in "The Hobbit" or the zombies in "World War Z" -- but those computer-generated creatures are nothing compared to the all-too-real swarm of monsters that have rallied to the black banner of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. ISIS (or ISIL, the alternative version of the name that substitutes the broader geographic term, Levant, for Syria) may be the most despicable band of barbarians to plague the world since the Khmer Rouge finished stacking up the skulls of their victims in Cambodia 35 years ago. Emerging from the chaos of the Syrian civil war, ISIS militants have swept across the Iraqi desert and seized control in much of that country over the last two months.

Mick Foley's return to the ring - at the Genesis pay-per-view Jan. 11 - was announced on Thursday night's episode of TNA Impact. It wasn't exactly a secret, but it's big news for TNA nonetheless. Foley will team with A.J. Styles and Brother Ray against Booker T., Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner. It will be interesting to see whether Foley's TNA wrestling debut increases the buy rate for the show. I'm also curious how much Foley will be able to do in the ring at this point.

Col. Brian Foley has taken command of Fort Meade at a challenging time for the U.S. military. With the end of the war in Iraq in 2011 and the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan next year, growth in defense spending was already expected to taper. Then came the sequester, the across-the-board cuts that led the Pentagon to furlough civilian employees over the summer. Fort Meade grew rapidly in the 2005 round of the base realignment known as BRAC to became the third-largest base in the Army.

It might not be a hardcore classic, it might not even be a typical wrestling match, but as Mick Foley said in an interview Saturday night, there is a small chance he could return to WWE for one more match. And he even picked an opponent! Watch the full interview below, which includes an extended cameo by Dolph Ziggler.

This past weekend in Fairhaven, Mass., I had a chance to catch Mick Foley doing standup comedy. I have seen him before, at "The Improv" after Summerslam 2012 in Toronto, and at other places. This is the sixth time I have seen his act. Each time after the first have been a blend of jokes that work every time, plus some new material. Foley is very topical with his humor, as it pertains to events in his career. This past weekend's shows included jokes and stories from his WWE Hall of Fame induction and doing a promo with Ryback in the ring.

CM Punk's path has taken an unexpected turn. Many wondered where the champion would go after retaining his WWE Championship against Ryback at Sunday night's Hell in a Cell. The million-dollar question was answered in the opening segment of Raw, but it was an answer as unexpected as the conclusion of Sunday night's pay-per-view. Punk denied having any knowledge of referee Brad Maddox's plans for the evening, suggesting he did it to make it up to Punk for screwing him in a tag team match against John Cena several months ago.

Foley, the highest-ranking Democratic office-holder in the land, finds his leadership in question, his minions out of control and his beloved Congress at the bottom of the heap in public esteem. Scandal and setback are his daily fare, raising speculation that there may be a move in the next Congress to oust him and institute reforms he hasresisted until recently.The latest troubles to hit the Oregon Democrat:* His wife, Heather, an unpaid member of his staff, was called to testify before a federal grand jury investigating criminal activity at the House Post Office and possible cover-up attempts by persons answerable to the speaker;* In a House vote, Mr. Foley was unable to muster even a simple majority, let alone the two-thirds majority required to overturn President Bush's veto of the Democrats' election-year tax bill.
