Global Politics

There were several foreign news events this past week which resonated here at home: nuclear tests in Indian and Pakistan, the sale of US technology to China, and House Speaker Newt Gingrich's trip to Israel. Liane discusses the politics of these stories with NPR Diplomatic Correspondent Ted Clark and Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times. They also reflect on the legacy of former Senator Barry Goldwater.
