FROM Ted Mann
11 Years after September 11, 2001 Last year, President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush attended New York's tenth anniversary observance of September 11. Today, things were much different. In Washington today, President Obama appeared at the Pentagon , 11 years after America's military headquarters was struck by a hijacked jetliner. In New York, there were no elected officials at today's observance. It was a simpler ceremony than those of the last decade in memory of the 2,977 people who were lost that day. Ted Mann is transportation reporter for the Wall Street Journal .
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
