With Dan Goure, Fred Grandy, Douglas Murray, Bill Gertz.

Vice President of the Lexington Institute DAN GOURE gives an in-depth explanation of how sequestration cuts will hurt the United States' military and create a cycle in which our inability to replenish our forces will embolden our enemies, whom we will then be unprepared to confront.

Former Congressman FRED GRANDY offers up his opinions on the spurious excuses made in yesterday's hearing on the Benghazi attack. Why, for instance, couldn't F-16s been used to disperse the crowd simply by flying overhead?

DOUGLAS MURRAY, Associate Director of the Henry Jackson Center, talks with Frank about the assassination attempt against Lars Hedegaard, which he considers an "appalling attempt" to stop our freedom of expression. Yet, as Murray points out, the usual defenders of free speech are not speaking out about the incident--rather, some feel that perhaps Hedegaard simply shouldn't have said anything in the first place.

Washington Times national security editor BILL GERTZ explains his theory that CIA personnel were in Benghazi to begin with because of a proposed plan to arm Syrian rebels, which President Obama ended up rejecting. Gertz also expresses his frustration that so much of the John Brennan hearing was focused on drones, when the bigger issue is Brennan's refusal to identify Islamist extremists as the enemy.

LIGNET editor FRED FLEITZ analyzes Iran’s nuclear program, which he believes is now at a point where it can create 5-7 nuclear weapons with possibly testing the first one in 2-6 months. Iran is very close to Israel’s point of no return in which Israel will attack Iran’s nuclear and military facilities.

Strategic analyst DAN GOURE talks about how Putin and the Kremlin as a whole are pushing for Obama’s re-election because Russia knows having Obama as president of the US gives them a strategic advantage. Putin is willing to decrease Russia’s strategic missiles in order help bolster Obama’s favorability among US voters.

KORI SCHAKE of the Hoover Institution explains how the geopolitical landscape has changed since the end of the Cold War and what promoting democracy globally really means in the 21st century.

“If you don’t win the air battle, then don’t get into the war,” remarks Dan Goure of the Lexington Institute. He joins Secure Freedom Radio to discuss the effects that the proposed defense cuts will have on America’s military interests abroad.  He warns that if our military lacks the necessary funds for forward deployment, then we will be at risk for losing our economic and technological advantages over those in the international community who do not have our best interests in mind. It is his belief that additional defense cuts will result in a hollow military and increased threats to American lives.

Next, American novelist and freelance writer, Claire Berlinski joins Frank from her home in Istanbul to talk about the unprecedented resignation of the Chief of the General Staff in Turkey in protest of the coup plotting charges presented against his fellow members in uniform. She gives us her slant on the Western press’s portrayal of the situation happening. The key question is not whether these resignations are good or bad for Turkish democracy, she says, but rather who is now in charge of running the 2nd largest army in NATO.  Furthermore, she gives us the big picture of the Mafioso-like society that runs through the veins of Turkish leadership.

Peter Huessy, President of GeoStrategic Analysis, presents Frank with his suggestions for fixing the budget crisis, as well as voices his concerns that about the impact that cuts will have for the US over the next ten years. He urges Congress to choose between the Tea Party’s Ryan’s Budget Plan and the increase in taxes suggested by Democrats in order to provide the American economy with a long-term fix . Additionally, he explains how the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) will cede important American resources to countries that do not have our best interests in mind.

Finally, Contributing Editor for the National Review Online and weekly guest with Secure Freedom Radio, Andy McCarthy examines what he considers the “sad state of affairs” happening around the budget deal, as well as the federal government’s role in this deal. He also defends prominent voice against Shariah in the United States, David Yerushalmi against the allegations put forth by a recent New York Times article.
