As the President weighs his options in Afghanistan we’ll bring the debate to you with an EXCLUSIVE roundtable on ‘This Week’: Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee; Senator Saxby Chambliss, R-GA, a member of the Intel Committee and Senate Armed Services; Representative Jim McGovern, D-Mass., who has introduced a bill that would require the Administration to submit an exit strategy in Afghanistan; and General Jack Keane, the retired four-star general who was the mastermind behind the “troop surge” in Iraq and supports General McChrystal’s call for more troops. We’ll cover all the issues: the current state of Al Qaeda, its relationship with the Taliban and whether it’s time to wind down or ramp up the mission in Afghanistan?
On our second roundtable we’ll turn to domestic politics. The Huffington Post’s Arianna Huffington, former Bush Communications Director Nicolle Wallace and ABC’s Donna Brazile and George Will join me to debate the politics of health care reform, how the political landscape is shaping up for the 2010 mid-terms, and ethics troubles for Nevada’s Republican Senator John Ensign and powerful Democratic Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Charlie Rangel.
See you Sunday.
