follow-up to the debate, John King hosted "The Next
President." One segment has Michael talking about
Iraq, the other focuses on Iran.
Length: 3:53 / 2:53
Roland Martin's weekend
special this week was "What They Didn't Say in the
Debate" and in one segment, Michael (and Fran
Townsend) discussed the Iran/Iraq situation as well
as Afghanistan and how we need to proceed there. A
lot of terrific points were made in this segment...
and this stuff definitely should have been addressed
in the debate and in the post-debate discussion.
Kudos to Roland Martin for finally giving the people
who know what they are talking about on these
subjects time enough to actually explain what
we-the-people need to know.
Following the debate...
well, Michael barely got a word in. Who would ever
have guessed that the Iraq war would not be THE topic
of this election; in fact, not even THE topic at the
debate slated to focus on foreign policy?
Length: 0:19 / 0:23
Prior to the debate,
Campbell Brown moderated a panel with Michael,
Christiane Amanpour, John King, Anderson Cooper,
Jeffrey Toobin, David Gergen, and Gloria Borger.
As is to be expected with the cast-of-thousands coverage, each reporter/pundit got very little time to discuss the issues -- Michael was asked only two questions during the hour. These are those individual clips, but I will be archiving complete coverage of the panel later.
Length: 2:30 / 1:03
Michael talks to Wolf
about tonight's presidential debate and the topics he
hopes will be covered substantively, including (of
course) Iraq, Iran, and Russia.
Senators McCain and Obama on Iraq. Not surprisingly,
neither one gets an A on this test... but how much
honesty can the American public take?
Michael spells out what
today's announced withdrawals really add up to and
again has to go through the explanation of why the
Iraqi government isn't embracing the "Sons of Iraq."
Michael talks with
Fionnuala Sweeney about the "drawdown" and what
Hala Gorani talks to
Michael about the troop drawdown, whether the surge
worked, and what all of it means for the future.
Michael talks to John
Roberts about revelations in Bob Woodward's new book.
Michael is still in NY
and speaks with Kiran Chetry about the troop
draw-down to be announced today.
