Moderator: Gwen Ifill. Two years after the tragic events of September 11th, the war on terrorthat the attacks ignited has taken a new turn. On Sunday, President Bush named Iraq the "central front" in the war on terrorism and has asked Congress to appropriate $87 billion to continue the fight in both Iraq and Afghanistan. This week on Washington Week, David Sanger of The New York Times provides analysis of the president's foreign policy in Iraq and the Middle East, while Martha Raddatz of ABC News assesses the latest military progress in the war, and Congressional Quarterly's Gebe Martinez details congressional reaction to the president's strategies and his funding request. Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times reminds us that people, not just policies, changed after September 11th. He joins the roundtable this week to describe how Americans' perspectives were crucially altered by the national tragedy.
