More than any president in modern times, President Bush has made
the promotion of freedom a pillar of U.S. foreign policy. It is no
surprise that this agenda has raised the ire of tyrants and
demagogues around the world. What is surprising is that it has also
set off a hot debate in the United States and Europe over whether
freedom is a realistic goal for all people, especially in hotbeds
of intolerance like the Middle East.
Join us as Natan Sharansky - an outspoken advocate of human rights
and freedom who is an author, an Israeli member of Knesset, a
winner of the Congressional Gold Medal, and a former Soviet
dissident who recently called George W. Bush "the Dissident
President" - examines the necessity of freedom, the bedrock of
peaceful, prosperous and democratic societies.
