It will be four years this Sunday since 9/11/2001. It was an epic smack to the face of the United States. Novelist Tom Wolfe was watching. So was national security chieftain and mega-thinker Zbignev Brezinski. And they've been watching the world, and us, ever since.

Tom Wolfe and Zbignev Brezinski will help us track the arc of American security and American psyche since 9/11. Brezinski is the Democrat strategist with a heart of steel. Tom Wolfe is the novelist and American savant with a deep stripe of conservatism and appreciation for George W. Bush.

Hear Tom Wolfe and Zbignev Brezinski talk about America - four years since the blow of 9/11.
