FROM THIS EPISODE

Was September 11, like Pearl Harbor or the Civil War, a watershed moment in America? One year after our harmonious high-tech world was shattered by terrorists, the verdict is still out. To help us sort it all out, we speak with Newsweek International-s Fareed Zakaria, cultural historian Neal Gabler and -communitarian- Amitai Etzioni. Zakaria, a Muslim whose essay, -Why They Hate Us- appeared last October, considers lost opportunities in American foreign policy. Gabler, a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles and New York Times, explains how American culture continues to shape 9-11. Etzioni, a prolific writer and sociologist at George Washington University, claims that last year-s terror pushed America closer to his goal of greater community.
  • Newsmaker: Institute for Strategic Studies Assesses Iraqi WMD
    After examining extensive historical evidence and unclassified materials, London-s International Institute for Strategic Studies has published its findings on Iraq-s military capabilities. Charles Heyman, a retired British Army major who edits Jane-s World Armies and is a member of the IISS, says that while Iraq-s major threat is in the realm of bioterrorism, there is not sufficient evidence to warrant a pre-emptive attack.
  • Reporter-s Notebook: While America Napped: Halberstam on the War on Terror
    David Halberstam won the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on the Vietnam War. His War in a Time of Peace, a prognosticator for warning against the threat of terrorism before September 11, has a new epilogue which addresses America-s historic trivialization of public affairs. Halberstam speaks about the awakening of a self-absorbed America, fighting terror, and some of the real life heroes of September 11.
