President Bush says Saddam Hussein was a threat to U.S. security. His critics say that compared to a war with Iraq, a larger investment in homeland security might have given Americans more protection for their money. Diane and her guests talk about the cost and benefit of America’s security choices.

Guests

  • P.J. Crowley senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, retired Air Force colonel, and former special assistant to former President Clinton for national security affairs
  • Daniel Goure vice president of the Lexington Institute, a nonprofit public-policy research organization. He is involved in a wide range of issues as part of the institute's national security program. He has held senior positions in both the private sector and the U.S. Government. Most recently, he was a member of the 2001 Department of Defense Transition Team. Dr. Goure spent two years in the U.S. Government as the director of the Office of Strategic Competitiveness in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
