Britain's foreign secretary calls "war on terror" a mistake

Thursday, January 15, 2009

In today's issue of The Guardian newspaper, Britain's foreign secretary, David Milliband, called the "War on Terror" a mistake. He wants a review of the tactics used to combat terror and calls the current strategy misleading and mistaken. These remarks were repeated in a speech he made in Mumbai today. For more on this we are joined by Naomi Grimley, the BBC's political affairs correspondent in London.

David Milliband was on Charlie Rose several months ago discussing Britain's foreign policy and America's evolving role in the world.
