Women and Terrorism Elsewhere in the Middle East, Hayat Boumeddiene, the girlfriend of one of the terrorists who attacked Paris two weeks ago, may be in Syria. French police are still searching for her, and the hunt highlights one of the more overlooked aspects of jihadism: the role of women.

Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system.
