Provocative weakness - A neglected nuclear deterrent; Hagel’s announcement of more defense cuts; and an administration that ideologically opposes missile defense and favors unilateral arms reduction: How have the signals coming out of Washington emboldened the resolve of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un? BILL GERTZ of the Washington Free Beacon reports on intermediate range missile tests by North Korea, U.S. bomber flights, the state of play, and the strategic context.

MARK LANGFAN lays out the tactical realities of the threat to Israel of Katusha rockets fired from Gaza and Lebanon.

With Amb. John Bolton, Harold Rhode, Ryan Mauro, Bill Gertz
During the U.S. President's tour of the Middle East, many have been surprised at how his rhetorical performance has hit the right notes. The surprise is due to prior absence of policy and strategy to back up strong words for Iran and kind words for Israel. Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. JOHN BOLTON of the American Enterprise Institute discusses the consequential realities that remain for heads of state after the televised events.
Gatestone Institute Senior Fellow and former Department of Defense Middle East expert, HAROLD RHODE, walks through the complexities in Israel as well as those playing out in Syria and the broader Middle East in relationship to Turkey, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and to U.S. policy.
Global threat expert RYAN MAURO of the Clarion Project uncovers another failure of vetting by the State Department this time in respect to the newly appointed Prime Minister of the Syrian opposition. He also reports on the activities of Hezbollah in Syria and their long term strategic objectives, EU hesitation to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, and the formation of religious enforcement militias in Egypt.
Washington Free Beacon Editor, BILL GERTZ, reports on the administration's down playing of Russian strategic nuclear bombers increasing flights near the U.S. and its allies unchallenged. The administration has simultaneously completely canceled the SM3 Interceptor missile defense capability in Europe which is also a concession to Russian wishes. This took place last week as the headlines reported a seeming reversal in the administrations actions to diminish American missile defense while claiming strategic enhancement. The strategic enhancement was perhaps meant to be interpreted as better relations with Russia. Such an interpretation would be shown nullified by these aggressive nuclear bomber flights unprecedented since the end of the Cold War.

Research Fellow at the Henry Jackson Society EMILY DYER discusses the findings of her newly released report "Al-Qaeda in the United States." Among the most prominent findings were statistics showing that over half of Al-Qaeda related offenses committed in the US were by citizens, over a third of whom were born in the country. This, and the fact that the majority were also either well educated or employed and not actually on the fringes of society, requires a need to change our perception of terrorists, argues Dyer.
The trial of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith in Manhattan comes with a list of factors and serious implications. Among them is the inability to gain intelligence from him about his protection and harbouring by the Iranian regime.

The Center for Security Policy’s Senior Fellow for National Security Affairs, FRED GRANDY assesses these factors and weighs in on the would-have-been healthy national debate on drone policy.
As the drama unfolds for in the wake of the death of Hugo Chavez, JOSE CARDENAS of Vision Americas walks us through the factions of the regime and elements of Cuban influence.

With Sebastian Gorka, Fred Grandy, Bill Gertz, and James Carafano. Rich Miniter guest hosts with co-host Jacki.
What happens to regional stability when the U.S. acts without, “overarching doctrines and strategies?” SEBASTIAN GORKA of Foundation for Defense of Democracies and author of Fighting the Ideological War: Winning Strategies from Communism to Islamism, makes the necessary distinctions concerning Syria’s war to understand the absence of strategy in the role of the United States and the consequences there of.
Former Iowa congressman FRED GRANDY expresses his fear that the $60 million in aid the U.S. is planning on giving to the Syrian rebels is in fact going to the wrong sorts of people. Namely, Islamists who will eventually turn against the United States.
BILL GERTZ of The Washington Times explains that because China is going beyond maritime harassment of Japan to actually moving weapons across the, the likelihood of the US getting involved because of our mutual defense treaty with Japan is greatly increasing.
On the day that sequestration is set to go into effect, JAMES CARAFANO of the Heritage Foundation predicts that in the long run the US will actually end up spending more on defense. Already military training, and from their preparedness, has been hurt by the budget cuts already made pre-sequestration.
