President Obama has decided to maintain U.S. military bases and conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan after bringing the longest war in America's history there to an end next year.

Neuman-caliber strangeness of former President Bill Clinton receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Nobel Peace Prize recipient Barack Obama ("Obama, Clinton hide tension behind smiles at medal ceremony," Web, Nov. 20).

The "White Widow" British terror suspect involved in the Nairobi shopping mall massacre last month reportedly penned a love poem prasing Osama bin Laden and pledging to continue instilling terror into non-Muslims.
The United States may be struggling under the burden of ever-growing debt, but quitting payments to Pakistan is the wrong move, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said Tuesday.
The U.S. has quietly decided to release more than $1.6 billion in military and economic aid to Pakistan that was suspended when relations between the two countries disintegrated over the covert raid that killed Osama bin Laden and deadly U.S. airstrikes against Pakistani soldiers.
After the United States men’s soccer team won their World Cup qualifying match on Tuesday night, the Mexican media exploded with praise for its neighbor to the north.
The national debate over how to treat suspected terrorists seized overseas has a new poster child: a 49-year old Libyan extremist charged as one of the planners in the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Africa.
