9/11, Iraq and the Global War on Terror

Hosted by

Six years ago, almost 3000 Americans died in attacks orchestrated by al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden. Today, Washington is preoccupied by the war in Iraq. General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker are getting tougher questions from Senators than they did from members of Congress. We update the action on Capitol Hill, including criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats, and look at the "Global War on Terror" so tragically dramatized six years ago. Is it really "global?" Is it a "war?" What does Iraq have to do with it?
