Family Feud? America and Its Allies at a Crossroads

February 27, 2003 // 12:00am11:00pm

America stands on the verge of armed conflict with Iraq. But it is also on the verge of something just as significant: a complete paradigm shift in the foreign policy that has guided American government for the past 50 years. Under the leadership of George W. Bush, the United States seems prepared to engage in a much more activist, "muscular" approach to foreign policy around the world. We already have a sense of how this more aggressive strategy will affect America's enemies. But what about its allies, such as Canada? And what will the consequences be for the American people?

Guests for this live, televised "town meeting" include:
-David Frum, author of The Right Man: The Surprise Presidency of George W. Bush
-Jack Layton, leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada
-Maryscott "Scotty" Greenwood, Executive Director of the Canadian-American Business Council and former Chief of Staff at the United States Embassy in Canada
-John O'Sullivan, Editor-in-Chief of United Press International
-John Duffy, Liberal Party of Canada strategist and principal at Strategycorp
-Susan E. Rice, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution
