Senator Russ Feingold discussed his new book While America Sleeps, which addresses our nation's collective failure in responding properly to the challenges of the post-9/11 era. The book covers the negligent and willful oversimplification of complicated new problems, as well as a sometimes cynical exploitation of the fears generated by 9/11, which have undermined our ability as a nation to adjust effectively to a new paradigm for America’s place in the world. While much of the book focuses on the missteps of the last ten years, it concludes not only with hope, but with specific solutions to help America better connect with the rest of the world.
