Jun 23, 2010 11:56am

In his first Sunday interview as CIA Director, Leon Panetta sits down with anchor Jake Tapper for a This Week exclusive. While what some see as insubordination of the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan puts the President’s leadership in question at a critical time, how will the U.S. move forward in the fight against the insurgents, the Taliban and al Qaeda? Will Osama bin Laden ever be brought to justice?  How close is Iran to producing a nuclear weapon?  What can be done about North Korea? After a recent series of attempted terrorist attacks on the homeland and many missed signals,  is the U.S. intelligence community up to the challenge of keeping America safe?  Nothing is off limits.  CIA Director Leon Panetta – a This Week exclusive.

Then, our powerhouse roundtable:  George Will, David Sanger of the New York Times, Robin Wright of the U.S. Institute of Peace and Washington Post Senior Correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran weigh in on the General McChrystal controversy.   How will turmoil at the top of the chain of command affect the prosecution of the longest military conflict in U.S. history?  Is the war winnable?  Plus all the week’s politics and a look ahead to next week’s Supreme Court hearings.  You won’t want to miss it.
