WASHINGTON, March 19, 2011 -- The United States and its international allies open fire on Libya.
On "This Week," Christiane Amanpour will get the latest directly from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen. Then, two ambassadors discuss the newest developments in this conflict. Christiane will be joined by French ambassador to the United Nations Gérard Araud whose nation is leading the charge against Gadhafi's forces and former Libyan ambassador to the United States Ali Suleiman Aujali who recently resigned from his post and renounced the Gadhafi regime.
Then, a powerhouse roundtable with George Will, former Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, former ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Jane Harman and noted author Robin Wright of the U.S. Institute of Peace will debate the military intervention to stop Gadhafi.
Plus, as the heroic battle continues to bring the damaged Fukushima nuclear reactor complex under control, Christiane Amanpour will have the very latest from Energy Secretary Steven Chu. Plus, how prepared is the U.S. for a possible nuclear disaster? Is the nuclear power industry safe? Can a nuclear meltdown happen here? Christiane will put those questions to former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff and former Energy Secretary Bill Richardson.
Two big stories, only on "This Week with Christiane Amanpour." You won't want to miss it.
