  • Walid PHARES. Foreign Policy Advisor to Mitt Romney and Advisor to the United States Congress (from Washington);
  • Pierre CONESA. French Political Institute Sciences Po; Former High Commissioner, French Defence Ministry;
  • Douglas HERBERT. France 24 International Affairs Editor.

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Christopher Davis.
