Charlotte Talks Archive: 2006 Conversation With Charles Krauthammer

Twitter / @krauthammer

Conservative commentator and Pultizer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer died Thursday, less than two weeks after he disclosed his terminal cancer.

In 2006, Krauthammer visited Charlotte to speak at Queens University of Charlotte's Learning Society. Mike Collins had a conversation with Krauthammer about politics and foreign policy, including the Iraq war, which was in its third year and becoming politically unpopular. Krauthammer was an ardent supporter of the conflict and its neoconservative underpinnings.

Here is that conversation, which aired March 23, 2006.
