In this week’s news round-up, we’ll look at the fallout from General McChrystal’s dismissal and what his replacement, General Petraeus, will bring to the war in Afghanistan. Will the strategy change or remain the same? We’ll also look at the increasing unrest in Iraq with the March election results still undecided. And, back at home, we’ll get the latest on the BP oil spill and its political ramifications. What do these crises say about Obama’s role as a leader? New poll numbers show that American’s confidence in the President is slipping and pessimism about the country’s future is growing. We get analysis from Trudy Rubin, Foreign Affairs columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer and James Kitfield, foreign affairs and national security correspondent for The National Journal.
