FROM Harriet Sherwood
US Foreign Policy Seen from Foreign Shores For tonight's final debate , President Obama and Governor Romney will be seated tonight at a small table with Bob Schieffer of CBS News. It's a lax format, and although Schieffer just might let them pivot to the economy, women's issues or unemployment, the major topic is foreign affairs. Does China care about economic threats? Has Israel's Netanyahu tried to swing the election? Is Iran anxious about an attack? What about Syria and the Arab Spring? We hear voices from around the world and update one subject that's almost guaranteed to arise: the deadly attack in Benghazi.
NATO Strikes Directly at Gadhafi After two strikes on Moammar Gadhafi's headquarters in three days, Libya claims NATO is trying to assassinate its leader. NATO has confirmed the strikes , saying that the target was "a communications headquarters used to coordinate attacks on the civilian population." Harriet Sherwood is in Tripoli for the Guardian in Britain.
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?
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?
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
