An experienced Associated Press (AP) foreign correspondent, Mort Rosenblum shares his views

of the U.S. in [Back Home: A Foreign Correspondent Rediscovers

America]. Having started his career over twenty years ago in the

Congo, and then covering events in over 140 countries, Rosenblum

takes a look at America and its people from a different angle.

In the interview he describes his career as an AP reporter, as well as the resistance to internationalization that exists in the U.S.

He states that the U.S. fails to recognize its influence as a world

leader. "I think we terribly overestimate our own ability to

actually change a specific situation, like, `Why can’t we get the

hostages out?'" At the same time he says Americans underestimate how much

the rest of the world looks to the U.S. for leadership in solving

large problems such as ozone-layer deterioration. close
