Is George Bush Engaged in Lame Duck Diplomacy? The President predicts peace in the Middle East before he leaves office in January of next year. He says it's time for Israel to end 41 years of occupation and allow contiguous boundaries for a Palestinian state. We hear about today's visits to Ramallah and Bethlehem, and look at the prospects for the second part of his Middle East mission, continuing the effort to isolate Iran. The Arab states seem to be losing interest and focusing now on who America's next president might be.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
