The 10-Point: My Guide to the Day's Top News

The Wall Street Journal
Good morning from Washington where I’m hosting the Journal’s annual CEO Council. Last night, more than 100 CEOs from around the world heard from Sen. Marco Rubio and Defense Secretary Ash Carter. The Paris attacks are at the forefront of all discussions.
Eluding the Dragnet
French and Belgian authorities raided homes in a new crackdown of radical Islamists, following Friday’s killings in Paris. An Islamic State operative suspected of helping plan the attacks had been monitored in Syria by Western allies seeking to kill him in an airstrike, but they couldn’t locate him in the weeks before the plot was carried out, two Western security officials said. Three of the seven suspected perpetrators are from Molenbeek, a small neighborhood near the historic center of Brussels, while one rented a house in a north eastern Paris suburb a few days before the attacks, police said. The attacks, apparently planned under the noses of authorities, raise the possibility that Islamic State adherents have found ways around the dragnet of electronic surveillance. Here’s a look at the seven attackers and two suspected associates who carried out multiple attacks around Paris. See our live blog for the latest updates.
Allies in the Fight
The Paris attacks continued to loom large on the global stage. World leaders pledged to deepen their involvement in what is increasingly a global campaign against the growing threat of Islamic State. France launched fresh airstrikes this morning, while Germany has been jolted into considering greater military involvement in the fight against the militant group. But assembling a broad coalition could prove tricky. Our Washington bureau chief Gerald Seib explores the challenges of forming an army to fight Islamic State. Meanwhile, Turkish officials revealed yesterday that they had identified one of the Paris assailants as a terrorism suspect and notified French authorities twice to no avail, highlighting intelligence lapses that plague cooperation among Western allies.
Back in the U.S.A.
Friday’s atrocity also seized the agenda in the U.S. The governors of states including Texas and Florida said they wouldn’t resettle refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria in their states, complicating the Obama administration’s efforts to bring thousands of displaced migrants to the U.S. And at our CEO Council conference last night, Marco Rubio leveled pointed charges at Republican presidential rivals who backed efforts to overhaul U.S. bulk collection of phone records, and Defense Secretary Ash Carter called on European nations to step up their involvement in the fight against Islamic State. Meanwhile, Islamic State militants vowed in a video released yesterday to launch terror attacks in Washington and Rome similar to the violence that erupted Friday in Paris and killed at least 129 people.
Bigger Still Better
Marriott International agreed to acquire Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide for $12.2 billion, a surprise ending to a heated process that involved some of the world’s largest hotel groups. The outcome is the clearest sign yet that hospitality companies view mass scale as critical to their success at a time when the Internet is erasing old barriers to global expansion in the lodging business. However, Starwood shareholders are getting a less-than-stellar premium, reflecting the degree of the company’s challenges, according to Heard on the Street’s Miriam Gottfried. “Investors may be less than comfortable during this Starwood stay,” she writes.

READER RESPONSE
In response to yesterday’s question about the implication of the recent terrorist attacks, Norman Blanton of Oklahoma predicted that “the attacks in Paris will force the West to align themselves with Putin, and in doing stop the support of the U.S.-backed rebels in Syria. This will have the consequence of making the U.S. an unreliable partner in any future insurgencies.” From California, Bashar Dabbas commented that “the Paris events may pave the road for the emergence of yet another presidential candidate from the Republican Party with a proven military record and stance against terrorism.” Stewart D. Cumming of California said “it should be crystal clear to most everyone that open borders and lax vetting of prospective immigrants leads to crime, drug-smuggling, and terrorism. Ensuring that those whom you let in will contribute positively to society is not an issue of race or elitism it is a matter of SAFETY.” Massimo Piras of Brussels wrote, “One thing that stands out is that the latest terrorist incident was yet again linked to Belgium…As the center of Europe, including, unfortunately, for jihadists, Belgium needs a world-class intelligence community.” Mary Thompson weighed in from New Mexico: “It appears that unless ISIS pulls off a major attack on U.S. soil, POTUS will continue with this incomplete plan to protect the U.S.A. It’s dismaying to realize the person most responsible for this country has no effective strategy to accomplish that.” And Irene DeBlasio of California asked, “Where on earth is the United Nations in all this?”
