'This Week with Christiane Amanpour' Exclusive w/ Sen. John McCain on Libya


Sunday, in a “This Week” exclusive: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) sits down with Christiane Amanpour for an interview on the growing crisis in Libya and the greater Middle East.

As President Obama declares that Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi must leave office, Ms. Amanpour will ask the former naval aviator and presidential nominee why he thinks a no-fly zone should be enforced over Libya. How far should the U.S. be willing to go to pressure Gadhafi economically and militarily?

Then Ms. Amanpour will lead a discussion about how women are transforming the Muslim world with her exclusive guests, The Daily Beast and Newsweek Editor-in-Chief Tina Brown, Egyptian writer and activist Dr. Nawal El Saadawi, Zainab Salbi of Women for Women International, and Sussan Tahmasebi of the International Civil Society Action Network for Women’s Rights, Peace and Security. Plus, Tina Brown will have a sneak preview of the newly redesigned Newsweek.

Some encouraging new jobs numbers show the economy is moving in the right direction, but is it fast enough? Where are the American jobs? Could buying more American-made products be part of the solution? As part of a special ABC News series of reports, “This Week” looks at “Made in America” with special guests Diane Sawyer, David Muir and Sharyn Alfonsi of ABC News.
And on the roundtable: publisher of U.S. News and World Report and The New York Daily News Mort Zuckerman, Chrystia Freeland of Thomson-Reuters, United Steelworkers President Leo Gerard, and ABC News’ David Muir will discuss how America can generate more jobs in a competitive global economy.

Christiane Amanpour is the anchor of “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” The program airs Sundays on the ABC Television Network (check local listings).
