A 72-hour cease fire between Israeli forces and Hamas reportedly failed within about 90 minutes, following an Israeli attack in Gaza and the subsequent capture of an Israeli soldier. Each side claims the other was the first to violate the cease fire and that they were only defending themselves. (CNN)

EBOLA: The U.S. State Department is preparing to conduct a medical evacuation of two citizens infected with Ebola from Liberia to the United States via a specially outfitted plane so that they can receive more advanced medical care. Officials say there is little risk of Ebola spreading in the United States. (NBC News)

CIA: The country's top spy, CIA Director John Brennan, is in hot water after an investigation found the agency inappropriately searched computers used by members of Congress. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) says that Brennan's job could be on the line.Though he has apologized for the breach, it begs the question: How good are the spies if they got caught? (Bloomberg News)

FACEBOOK: On a lighter note (or more earth-shattering, depending on your perspective), Facebook was down for many users this morning, displaying a message that said simply, "Sorry, something went wrong." Did the glitch ruin your morning or give you a much needed respite from our tech-saturated culture? (USA Today)
