Mayhem in the streets of Karachi, Pakistan, yesterday as Benazir Bhutto came home from exile to bombs that killed and wounded hundreds, exploding within yards of her entourage.

It's a tough world out there. In Washington this week, tough politics. A children's health veto stands. An Armenian genocide resolution heads for the shelf. Bush says he's relevant, bashes Congress, and everybody greets the Dalai Lama.

But out in the world, from Tibet to Turkey to Condoleezza Rice in the Middle East, and more, American sway is in question.

Up next, On Point: we'll go behind the week's headlines.Guests:

Glenn Kessler, diplomatic correspondent for The Washington Post, author of "The Confidante: Condoleezza Rice and the Creation of the Bush Legacy."

Magaret Talev, national political correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers.

Jack Beatty, On Point news analyst and senior editor at The Atlantic Monthly.

This program aired on October 19, 2007.
