The U.S. and Europe: Worldviews Apart?

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the United States and its European allies have moved from a newfound feeling of solidarity in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks to a historic rift over the U.S.-led war on Iraq. Many are now questioning whether the trans-Atlantic alliance has a future, and whether the U.S. and Europe can find a path back to mutual respect and cooperation. Here, to address these questions, are excerpts from FRONTLINE's interviews with policy analysts, diplomats, and journalists from both sides of the Atlantic.
