The fight over drones and targeted killing of Americans is just the latest example.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Russ Feingold on the Future of American Security In an era of increased security threats, the U.S. faces difficult and complex challenges. Senator Russ Feingold, who became well-versed in these challenges during his time on the foreign relations and intelligence committees, believes that due to institutional failures the U.S. has not responded properly. Feingold argues that a variety of factors contributed to this failure, from the oversimplification of complex problems to the way the war on terror has been portrayed in public; from our understanding of the nature of Islam to views of American exceptionalism. What steps must be taken to address the threats America faces?

    Forum America's Cup Funding Shortfall? America's Cup organizers are falling short in their efforts to raise private donations to help pay for the cost of bringing the America's Cup sailing competition to San Francisco -- and that could leave the city on the hook for about $20 million. The Board of Supervisors holds hearings Wednesday to discuss the shortfall. Supporters say even without all of the promised private funds, the city still benefits financially from hosting the America's Cup.
