'Left, Right & Center': Israel, Nukes and the GOP

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss President Obama’s approach to Israel. His well-received speech there was more about process than substance but provided a framework for next steps. Will his second term bring about positive foreign policy moves? Will Israel strike Iran — with or without U.S. support — if nuclear development continues? Would a nuclear ban be enforceable?

Iraq did not turn out the way supporters of the war imagined and was far more costly in dollars and lives. History will judge whether we should have gone for containment and whether we should have quit when we did.

Also, a report shows that the Republican National Committee recognizes real problems within the GOP.

Scheer and host Matt Miller are joined this week by Rich Lowry of National Review and Robin Wright of the United States Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
