How Important is Foreign Policy?
Let's talk about it tonight with guest Ret. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell.
The final debate is now history, but the debate over the debates will no doubt continue right up until election day. We've been focused largely on jobs and the economy to this point, but last night's candidate conversation broached topics we haven't thought as much about: our place in the world.
How important is our foreign policy in protecting and preserving our interests and security? And, with things so difficult here at home, can we really even afford what we're doing across the globe?
with Michael Charney & guest host Jeanene Louden
Tuesdays at 8 pm ET (5 pm PT)

In a recent blog posting, co-host Michael Charney argued that we really don't even understand what foreign policy is supposed to do, nor are we able to coherently express today's foreign policy at all. Others would argue that President Obama has done a superior job of repairing the damage done to our image during the Bush presidency. Both points of view seem to have some validity....
Tonight we will talk about these and other issues, including last night's debate. We will also speak with Ret. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell, and a man with intricate knowledge of what went into convincing the world that the Iraq invasion ws the right thing to do. We'll be asking how he describes today's foreign policy approach, and, more importantly, how any of us can ever again trust the "intelligence" we're told is true...
So join us. Call in. Tell us what you think.
