Tonight on the program, we examine the current state of the diplomatic situation between the United States and China after Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng left U.S. custody, claiming he did so 'under duress.' Also: the election battleground state of Virginia, teaching climate change in schools, Afghanistan's future in the wake of the new pact, and Holocaust survivor Gerda Weissmann Klein.
