ABSTRACT
The article covers issues related to foreign policy as of August 11, 2009. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton was criticized by right-wing media despite his success in bringing back to the nation detained journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee from North Korea. The move of Colombian President Alvaro Uribe for a constitutional change was supported by the U.S. government. It cites the efforts of the African Union (AU) to assert national sovereignty against the authority of international institutions.
