Third Debate Topics Announced

The second debate hasn’t even happened, and we’re already getting prepped for the third. Moderator Bob Schieffer of CBS News will be discussing issues of foreign policy during the third and final presidential debate Oct. 22. On Saturday, Schieffer announced the five topics he’s selected for the debate: “The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism,” “Our Longest War—Afghanistan and Pakistan,” “Red Lines—Israel and Iran,” “The Rise of China and Tomorrow’s World,” and last but not least, “America’s Role in the World.” The candidates will have two minutes each for an answer before six minutes of discussion during each segment.
