Obama's Foreign Policy Challenges -- What are the key foreign policy challenges for the Obama administration as the president's second term begins? The program travels to Brussels, the European Union's de-facto capital to examine the potential impact of a free trade agreement between the U.S. and E.U. The show also hears how the Syrian civil war is destabilizing other countries in the Mideast, with tens of thousands of refugees seeking refuge outside Syria, and discusses other Mideast hotspots, including Iran and Egypt. And what is the U.S. strategy in the Asia-Pacific region, where territorial disputes and new Chinese leaders are a major concern?
