Terrorism can't be sole focus

There was a rare point of bipartisan agreement Sunday between President Obama and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (in photo), with the latter agreeing with the president that the long war on al-Qaida and terrorism doesn't have to dominate our foreign policy. On NBC's "Meet the Press," Giuliani said: "It's a significant enemy, but it's not an enemy like Nazism and communism, in a sense that it is a worldwide conflagration." He added: "We have to be able to deal with it with strength, but we also have to be equally willing to give attention to the issues with Asia," Africa, Europe and South America.
