ABC chose Iraq for its major international hotspot. The so-called surge of US troop reinforcements is growing ever larger: "While commanders in Iraq talk about more troops and more time, the political debate at home is moving in the opposite direction," Jonathan Karl commented from the Pentagon as Gen David Petraeus put in his latest request--for an army helicopter brigade of Blackhawks, Chinooks, Apaches.
And from the western hemisphere, ABC aired a preview of Barbara Walters' interview for 20/20 with Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela. Walters asked about Chavez' insults towards Bush: "a devil, a donkey, a drunk, a liar, a coward, a murderer." Chavez apologized for his excesses: "Maybe in the future we could even play baseball…Personally speaking I am not an enemy of his. I am more like an opponent."
