Good Morning: Dos a Cero Lives On In USA Mexico

The USMNT held off an early wave of attack from Mexico and stormed out in the second half behind Eddie Johnson's 49th minute header, courtesy of Landon Donovan's corner. Donovan went on to score the second, putting the US up 2-0 over Mexico for the fourth match in a row played in Columbus, OH. The win officially sends the USMNT to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, as Juergen Klinsmann keeps looking like a genius.

The United Nations released findings from their investigation, ruling that eight massacres have been carried out by the Assaed regime, while the rebels are responsible for one. They are still investigating nine other mass killings since March, but cannot officially identify the prepetrator.

"Relentless shelling has killed thousands of civilians and displaced the populations of entire towns. Massacres and other unlawful killings are perpetrated with impunity," the commission concludes. "An untold number of men, children and women have disappeared. Many are killed in detention; survivors live with physical and mental scars of torture. Hospitals and schools have been bombarded."
