Episode Summary

Inside the Mind of Kim Jong Il
North Korea's enigmatic dictator, Kim Jong Il, has been getting plenty of attention recently. In the first presidential debate, Democratic candidate John Kerry accused the Bush administration of allowing North Korea to obtain nuclear weapons on their watch. The forthcoming film "Team America: World Police," has Kim Jong Il in the lead bad-guy role.

Tucker interviews former CIA psychological profiler Jerrold Post about the Kim Jong Il personality cult. Post spent several decades developing personality profiles for the Central Intelligence Agency. Among his recent books is: Leaders and Their Followers in a Dangerous World: The Psychology of Political Behavior.

Carlson is joined by Deroy Murdock of Scripps Howard News Service and Hilary Rosen of CNBC in a discussion of the latest in campaign developments, as well as further analysis of the situation vis-a-vis North Korea.

On the eve of the election in Afghanistan, Carlson talks with Pamela Constable of The Washington Post. As The Post's chief correspondent in Afghanistan and South Asia, Constable is a western woman reporting from some of the most socially conservative and dangerous locales. Her new book on her reporting experiences and her personal spiritual journey is called Fragments of Grace: My Search for Meaning in the Strife of South Asia.moreless
