Week in review: Afghanistan, human rights and Clinton

Gideon Rose of Foreign Affairs magazine and Carla Robbins of The New York Times editorial board join Martin Savidge to discuss the week’s top stories: The escalating war — and increasing casualties — in Afghanistan, the U.S. commitment to human rights abroad and Hillary Clinton’s role in U.S. foreign policy.

Part 6: “Abu Ghraib Photos: Warning Graphic Images”


The New York Times is not the best source of news. A recent photo of the Pope with the President’s family showed a girls bare foot coming out of the lemo, and that the talks were very bad. This does not compare to other news services. The Times is not the truth going on, and not a reliable source, best listen to what is said by Politicians, and not read the Times.
Maybe the truth is best served.


Dear Martin: Could you please bring Ian Bremmer instead of Gideon Rose next time. I think Mr. Bremmer has a better undertsanding of the world and it politics.


Re Clinton: She suffered a fractured right elbow. Do you know what that means in terms of pain, medication, brain fog from meds? She seems to be recovering. Give her a little time to heal.
