Here is a collection of some of the stories making the Internet rounds this morning. Click the links for the full stories.

  • Speaking to Reuters on action in Syria, President Barack Obama stamped his impatient foot a little: “First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line. The world set a red line when governments representing 98 percent of the world’s population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use even when countries are engaged in war.

The data feed would give the U.S. Government the right to share the information inside the government, as well as outside the government, “for U.S. Government purposes,” says a small business set-aside solicitation that was issued by DHS on September 3.

  • The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will help Maryland promote new insurance options under ObamaCare, state officials announced Tuesday.
