Episode Summary

Our National Intelligence
President Bush nominated the nation's first Director of National Intelligence precisely at the moment that his administration is turning up the heat on two of Iraq's neighbors: Iran and Syria. Iran is suspected of seeking nuclear weapons, and Syria of assassinating the popular former Lebanese prime minister. But, after the WMD intelligence mess, can the Bush administration make a credible case for action against these two regimes? Tucker talks with former CIA director James Woolsey "First Up" this week.

On our "Plus 2" segment Tucker is joined by Jonah Goldberg of National Review and Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist for additional discussion of the Lawrence Summers gender statements.

Novel treatments and relentless "prevention" campaigns took AIDS/HIV in the United States off the front pages. New York health authorities suspect a new "super" strain of the HIV virus, while many in the young gay community practice unsafe, drug-fueled sex. AIDS is back and, in another development, it is infecting large numbers of African-American women. Carlson talks with President Clinton's AIDS czar, Sandra Thurman on our "Back Page" segment.moreless
