This week marks the passing of JFK speechwriter and top aide Ted Sorensen at age 82. One gem from the early On Point archives is an October 7, 2002 conversation between Sorensen and Tom Ashbrook, about the Cuban missile crisis and lessons learned. The discussion took place as the invasion of Iraq loomed, and Sorensen looked at the parallels.

This program aired on November 4, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
