Episode Summary

Keynote Address by Lawrence Wilkerson
Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of staff to secretary of state Colin Powell, delivers the keynote address at the 61st Annual World Affairs Council Conference at Asilomar. The theme for the 2007 conference was Rethinking the "War on Terror".In the years since 9/11, the "War on Terror" has defined the Bush Administration's foreign policy. While no terrorist attacks have succeeded on US soil, many consider the global terrorist threat greater than ever. Critics also suggest that the emphasis on fighting terror has damaged American authority and leadership abroad.Rethinking the "War on Terror" brought together some of the world's foremost experts who explored new foreign policy strategies. They critically examined military, political, social, and economic approaches, offering a roadmap to improve our security. The conference provided participants with a much better understanding of our foreign policy options and the ability to judge the ideas that our current and future leaders propose - World Affairs Councilmoreless
