Perspectives On Foreign Policy - Madeleine Albright and Bruce Riedel

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was a small child when her family fled Czechoslovakia just after the Nazi invasion. A half century later she learned she had Jewish ancestry and that many of her relatives perished in the Holocaust. As secretary of state in the Clinton administration, she was an advocate for victims of tyranny. In a new book, she writes about her Czech roots and family history - and how that affected her world view. Albright and veteran foreign policy adviser Bruce Riedel discuss America's role on the global stage and U.S. policy toward fledgling democracies today.
