(Studio: Wolf Blitzer) Live discussion held with former United States arms control director Ken Adelman, former United States ambassador to NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) Robert Hunter and former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft about the coalition for the war in Afghanistan. [HUNTER - comments on the need for political support of the military campaign.] [ADELMAN - says we don't need a tight coalition like in the Persian Gulf war; suggests we have to go after other countries to get the international terrorists on the run.] [SCOWCROFT - says this war is more of an intelligence operation than a military operation so we need to rely on our allies; affirms the basic objective is the terrorist networks, not the Taliban.]

Blitzer, Wolf
