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?

Former Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp member and CIA agent REZA KHALILI reports new intelligence on a covert Iranian nuclear site, nuclear material, and weapons capability including numbers on weaponized grade Uranium that would seem to exceed stated Red Lines of the United States.

December 14th, 2012 ·

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, 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.

With Claudia Rosett, Dr. Neil Kressel, Matt Boyle, and Gordon Chang

Journalist CLAUDIA ROSETT explains that the UN is siding with the terrorists in the case of Hamas vs. Israel. The UN has ignored Hamas's increased attacks against Israel and has even pressured the Israelis to work with Hamas to resolve the conflict.

Professor DR. NEIL KRESSEL talks about his new book which looks at the growing antisemitic rhetoric within the Muslim community. With the growing Islamist influence within Europe and the Middle East, is the Jewish faith in danger?

Journalist MATT BOYLE analyzes the growing connection between drug cartels in Mexico and terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah. He explains how these terrorists are using the drug routes to enter the US in return for providing weapons and money to the cartels to wage their drug war.

Asian analyst GORDON CHANG looks at China's new aircraft carrier, that can actually land an aircraft. He sheds light on what this development means for regional stability; as well as the growing anticommunist sentiments within the country.

With Andy Bostom, Diana West, Paul Kengor, and Claudia Rosett

Today’s show focuses on the attack in Benghazi that left an American ambassador dead and many questions unanswered as to how the attack unfolded. Each guest tries to explain what happened that faithful night, both in Libya and Washington DC. What did the president know and when? Did he refuse to send aid to the consulate while it was under attack?

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, 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.

Michael Mukasey, Claudia Rosett, Jeff Kueter, T. Boone Pickens

September 27th, 2012 ·

Former Attorney General MICHAEL MUKASEY stops by the show today to talk about the “Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman.  Rahman is a dangerous terrorist with connections to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.  Is Obama really considering freeing the Blind Sheik?

CLAUDIA ROSETT, writer at Pajamas Media and,  talks about President Obama’s recent trip to the UN General Assembly.  During his speech President Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also visited the General Assembly, where he declared that Israel would be eliminated.

President of the George C. Marshall Institute JEFF KUETER examines the link between climate change and national security.  Does climate change really pose a serious threat to our national security? Do environmental disasters fuel conflict? Will significant climate change create new, unseen conflicts?

T. BOONE PICKENS discusses the oil supply passing through the Strait of Hormuz and the future of the United States’ role in regards to the growing tension in the area. Closer to home, Pickens refers to the possible availability of oil and gas here in the United States, as well as the lack of effect on the national water supply posed by fracking.

Sen. Jon Kyl, Roger Noriega, Paul Kengor, Claudia Rosett

September 19th, 2012 ·

Senator JON KYL discusses the recent attacks on US embassies and the fear he has concerning liberals using these attacks to curtail free speech. He also explains that in light of these attacks, we need to be strong in our convictions and not submit to terrorism.

Latin American analyst ROGER NORIEGA explains how Hugo Chavez could still steal the election even in his fragile state. He also analyzes the drug trade in Colombia and the need for the US to maintain a strong presence in the region.

Professor PAUL KENGOR of Grove City College joins Frank today to discuss the current turmoil in the Middle East. Kengor argues that “all Hell has broken” loose in the Middle East. The hardcore Islamist Extremists behind the chaos pose a dire threat to U.S. interests in the region and to the security and well-being of the American people. Kengor argues that President Obama’s weak policies toward our enemies in the Middle East eerily reflect Jimmy Carter’s weak stand against the Soviet Union and Islamists who took over Iran in 1979.

CLAUDIA ROSETT talks about what the UN, Rice and Benghazi have in common. Rosett argues that the Obama administration is taking a weak UN-style approach to the Benghazi Consulate attack – that is, refusing to “own” the situation and take charge. She also takes time to talk about the increasing tensions between China and Japan.
