Two good fact checks of last night’s debate…


 …so I don’t have to.

Glenn Kessler at The Washington Post picks through much of the Iran stuff — as I noted in my blog, contra Michele Bachmann, Iran has not explicitly threatened to strike Israel.

Kessler also addresses the terrorists-in-Mexico weirdness, and explains why sanctioning Iran’s Central Bank is not as simple as it seems. And he notes his earlier "four Pinocchios" for Mitt Romney’s repeated claim that President Obama apologizes for America.

The New York Times’ Richard Oppel Jr. picks through Romney’s claim that Obama has not shown enough care for Israel.
