ROWAN SCARBOROUGH, writer for The Washington Times and author of Sabotage: America’s enemies within the CIA, discusses Chuck Hagel's nomination as Secretary of Defense, his relatively isolationist views and the effect that his presence on the cabinet could have for America and her allies.
FRED FLEITZ, managing editor of lignet.com, reviews a recent speech from President Assad in which he expresses somewhat delusional confidence in his quickly crumbling regime.
