Recorded on October 24, 2008
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
Violence in Mindanao flared in a very serious way this August
when The Philippines Supreme Court blocked the signing of a
long-negotiated agreement between Moro rebels and the central
government. Now the Supreme Court has declared the deal
unconstitutional. Are the prospects for a sustainable peace
in Mindanao dead? How did the situation reach this
impasse? How does it impact the United States' involvement
there? And what is America's interest in helping its ally
resolve the situation?
Please join us as we look at these questions and others with two
uniquely qualified analysts.
