Less then 18 months ago, President George W. Bush laid out a democratic vision for the world during his second inaugural address, but world hotspots have quickly blown up, forcing the U.S. to confront challenges around the globe. With Iraq struggling to stop the sectarian violence, increasing saber-rattling from North Korea and Iran, and the escalating Israeli strikes on Lebanon, have world events spiraled out of control for the Bush administration? Plus, with the latest violence in Israel, Lebanon and Gaza, are we on the verge of a regional war in the Middle East? As the world’s major industrial powers meet in Russia with an extremely lengthy agenda this week, we will take a closer look at what the U.S. can and will do about the world hotspots with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Then, we will continue our focus on where U.S. foreign policy and recent events abroad leave the country, with two key leaders from the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue — two leading members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — Sen. George Allen (R-VA) and Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT).
Our Fox News Sunday panel will then provide its analysis of the developments out of St. Petersburg and the latest from the Valerie Plame leak investigation. Our Sunday panel includes FOX News contributors Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol, Executive Editor of the Weekly Standard, NPR Senior National Correspondent Juan Williams and NPR National Political Correspondent Mara Liasson.
Finally, our power player this week is carrying on a family tradition and helping to navigate us to a cleaner environment. You won’t want to miss a ride aboard the latest Cousteau adventure.
