ROBERT ZARATE of the Foreign Policy Research Institute raises several questions about Sec. Def. Chuck Hagel's recent announcement to renew the Bush administration's commitment to ground based missile interceptors in the U.S. which the Obama administration cut back in its first term. Will sequestration allow the plan to follow through? Was the cancellation of long range ICBM interceptors in Europe in fact the more important element of the announcement as it is a strategic step backward and a concession to Russian power in the region?

FRED GRANDY of the Center for Security Policy discusses the likely nominations of John Kerry as Secretary of State and Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, as well as the upcoming referendum on the new Egyptian constitution.
CLAUDIA ROSETT, writer at Pajamas Media and Forbes.com, talks about Susan Rice's shortcomings as the United States' ambassador to the UN, and in particular the failure to block the vote that upgraded the status of the Palestinian Authority. Rosett also explains how the Obama administration's refusal to stop sending money to the UN after the vote goes against US policy established in the '90s regarding recognition of Palestine as a full member before it had a physical state.
Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies MARK KRIKORIAN analyzes what we are likely to see in the way of immigration reform. Namely, he predicts a push for renewable work visas, which he argues will create a servant class within the country akin to that of Saudi Arabia. Krikorian argues, however, that any such amnesty or quasi-amnesty must be preceded by actual enforcement of immigration laws, and a real effort made to screen out people who desire to do damage to the country.
Washington Times journalist BILL GERTZ talks with Frank about the possibility of Chuck Hagel becoming the new Secretary of Defense. Confirmation of Hagel would be especially bad considering his support of weakening the U.S.'s nuclear force, despite an international environment that shows such an action would be foolish.

Latin America analyst ROGER NORIEGA takes a look at Hugo Chavez’s less-than-surprising triumph in the Venezuelan presidential election this past Sunday. While Chavez may be the winner in the present, however, the campaign took a toll on his already frail health, and the Venezuelan opposition has been heartened by its moderate successes. A leadership crisis may not be far off.
CLAUDIA ROSETT, writer at Pajamas Media and Forbes.com, gives a preview of what is likely to be discussed at Wednesday’s congressional hearing on the recent attack of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. According to Rosett, from the very beginning the Obama administration’s official story flew in the face of all available facts, largely because of an unwillingness to recognize that terrorism still exists.
CAROLINE GLICK of the Center for Security Policy discusses how the no-show of U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice to Netanyahu’s U.N. speech is simply a continuation of the Obama administration’s trend of alienating its allies in the Middle East. This separation is particularly dangerous as it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Iran would be willing to give some tips on building nuclear weapons to its long-time friend the Muslim Brotherhood.
Former federal prosecutor ANDY McCARTHY comments on Mitt Romney’s foreign policy speech given at VMI on Monday. Romney is running the risk, he says, of falling into the trap of seeing an automatic friend in every democracy. The Obama administration’s purchase of the Thomson prison, meanwhile, is giving the country a sneak peak of the danger to come after the election.
