Washington is most definitely out of the summer doldrums. There's so much going on, it'll make your head spin:
Afghanistan
Defense Secretary James Mattis made a surprise trip to Afghanistan today. He'll meet with Army Gen. Scott Miller, the new Commander of Resolute Support and US Forces-Afghanistan. Mattis' visit comes as the US is trying to pump new energy into its Afghanistan strategy after 17 years of war. Just a few days ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo named veteran diplomat Zalmay Khalilzad as a special envoy to Afghanistan. Khalilzad will focus on getting "the Afghans and the Taliban to come to a reconciliation."
 
Cincinnati shooting
Investigators are working to try to find a motive in a shooting in Cincinnati's Fountain Square district that killed at least three people. Police say a man, armed with a pistol and more than 200 rounds of ammo, opened fire on the loading dock of a bank headquarters building before going to the lobby. There, he was shot and killed by police. "This could have been a bloodbath beyond imagination," a prosecutor said. The shooter, 29-year-old Omar Enrique Santa Perez, had no known connections to the building, police said.
 
Brazil
The frontrunner in Brazil's upcoming presidential election was stabbed during a rally. Video shows shows Jair Bolsonaro being led through a crowd of supporters when a man suddenly stabs him in the chest. The suspect, who has a Facebook page full of anti-Bolsonaro posts, was arrested. Bolsonaro is recovering at a hospital after surgery and likely will be off the campaign trail for weeks. Bolsonaro's known for making racist, sexist and homophobic remarks, but he's attracted millions of supporters who believe he can shake up Brazil's corruption-marred political class. The election is set for October 7.
 
Burt Reynolds
Rugged good looks, a mischievous smile -- and that mustache. Burt Reynolds used all that and more to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars during the '70s and '80s. Reynolds -- the star of "Smokey and the Bandit," "Deliverance" and "The Longest Yard" -- died at 82 of cardiac arrest. Reynolds did a little bit of everything, from action flicks to comedies, and earned an Oscar nomination in 1998 for his role as a porn film producer in "Boogie Nights." He was also a director and philanthropist and founded the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre in Florida. Check out his five essential movies here.
 


Victims in New York deserve to be heard as well -- and we are going to do everything in our power to bring them the justice they deserve.
