    The New York Times has apologized for the picture it chose to go along with an article it published about last week’s brutal murder of IDF soldier Eden Atias. Rather than showing a photo of the soldier, the article entitled “Attack on Israeli Worsens Tensions With Palestinians” instead featured a photo of the 16-year-old terrorist’s mother as she was visited by her relatives. On Tuesday, the newspaper’s public editor Margaret Sullivan posted a blog in which she admitted that using the mother’s photo was the wrong decision.

Dominguez's violent death was the latest blow to Nuevo Laredo, a city across from Laredo, Texas, that has been crippled by a wave of drug violence. The city is on the front line of a turf battle between Mexico's two largest drug gangs, the Gulf and Juarez cartels....

    To mark Memorial Day, we have reprinted Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Today, as in 1863, the nation is at war. It is a struggle not with ourselves, but with those who seek to deny us our freedom. In this battle, it is not just soldiers who face the ultimate sacrifice. Americans of all ages, creeds and parties are under threat. Indeed the entire world and all who inhabit it are under threat from Islamist fanatics and other violent radicals. It seems right, therefore, to recall that America's struggle is the world's struggle — it is the test that transcends the...
