    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.
