President Obama, The UN And The US Role In The World

The world's leaders are in New York this week. It's the opening of the UN General Assembly. Both U.S. friends and U.S foes are represented there, plus some in between: Egypt's new president, Mohammed Morsi, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Afghan President Hamid Karzai. President Barack Obama addressed the assembly yesterday, calling on leaders to continue the "painstaking work of reform" and defending American values. But Mitt Romney thinks the country needs a more forceful leader, one better able to protect our interests. Please join us for a conversation on President Obama at the U.N. and differing perspectives on America’s role in the world.
