Former Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Perle travels the globe articulating, defending and debating the neoconservative case for an assertive American foreign policy. Perle finds no shortage of candidates willing to challenge him on the issue, including the wife of a soldier serving in Iraq and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Richard Holbrooke.
