That means any time you sold something for a profit: at a garage sale, on Craigslist or eBay. The most common form of tax evasion is failure to report income. And this year, changes are coming for online retailers who have flown under the radar for years.

    Afghanistan Night Raid Policy -- U.S. and Afghan officials have worked out the details over controversial night raids against suspected Taliban fighters. Now, Afghan Special Forces will take over the raids, and the U.S. will offer support. The night raids were a source of great anger among Afghan people, who hated the Americans bursting into their compounds. The raids were the last stumbling block to a long-term strategic partnership that is expected to be announced at a NATO summit in Chicago in May.

In light of the recent unfortunate events in Afghanistan, the situation for the U.S. military on the ground is increasingly tenuous.

Also joining the program is Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow in foreign policy at The Brookings Institution.

North Korea is preparing for a long-range rocket launch later this week, and new satellite photos indicate Pyongyang may be preparing for an underground nuclear test as well. In Iran, Tehran has agreed to hold talks on its nuclear program with the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany in Istanbul late this week. They would be the first such talks in more than a year, but prospects for success seem dim.
