At the top of our agenda this week, Afghanistan commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal talks trash about the President, and the President fires him. With Gen. David Petraeus slated to take over, what is the right way forward in Afghanistan? In making this tough call, did the President show the country and the world what leadership means?
Our “Washington Watch” newsmakers, retired Army Maj. Gen. John Hawkins, III; Paul Reickhoff, founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America; and Steve Clemons, foreign policy expert from the New America Foundation – they dig in on the impact of the President’s dismissal of Gen. McChrystal, on the war, as well as on the troops.
Plus, Indiana congressman André Carson and Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who is just back from the Gulf, talk about efforts to clean up the BP oil spill disaster and the new financial regulation bill headed to the President.
And in our “Washington Watch” roundtable: April Ryan, White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks; William Douglas, White House correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers; Robert Traynham, host of “Roll Call TV” on the Comcast Network; and Joe Madison, talk show host on Sirius/XM Radio.
All that and more in this week edition of “Washington Watch.”
