War, Foreign Policy and Activism

What do America’s top bloggers have to say about foreign policy, politics and how U.S. foreign policy is created, implemented and influenced by the emerging netroots? Watch footage from the YearlyKos Convention 2006 Panel on War, Foreign Policy and Activism: Problems and Solutions available at the Link TV and ForaTV websites and find out.

Panelists Lakshmi Chaudhry, Arianna Huffington, Ari Melber, Alex Rossmiller and Jonathan Singer address how the media can devise objectives and progressive alternatives to the current political climate, what national interests they think should guide foreign policy and what moral imperatives they believe should constrain U.S. action.

“With campaign consultants once again trying to poll and focus-group their way to victory, it’s up to the netroots to take the lead in making sure that in the elections of 2006 and 2008, the war in Iraq — and how it’s made America less safe — stays front and center. It’s all about the national security, stupid!” — Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post.
