An Orthodox Hasidic newspaper called Der Tzitung photoshopped Secretary of State Hillary Clinton out of the famous situation room photo snapped during the raid on Osama Bin Laden's compound. Clinton appears in the real photo with her hand covering her mouth, but is completely edited out in the newspaper's version of the image. While the paper has no official comment, it is believed that the publication does not print images of women as they could be considered sexually suggestive.

Arizona's fight against illegal immigration is back in the headlines today. The state is planning to build a fence along the Mexican border that's going to be funded by online donations, not state or federal money.

Samoan Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi says the time travel aims to boost trade with Australia and New Zealand.
