July 1st, 2011

In the encompassing debt crisis, will Republicans be able to avoid the impulse to cut defense? Bill Gertz, columnist for the Washington Times, comments on the changing of the guard at the Pentagon and CIA, in which he is unsure if Leon Panetta, who lacks defense background, will have the resolve to keep his promise that there will be “no hollow force on my watch.” Next, Congressman Trent Franks, of Arizona’s second district and member of the House Armed Services Committee, joins Frank to discuss the astonishing decision for the U.S. to resume contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, and explains why “this administration gets it so wrong.” Franks also informs on the Electromagnetic Pulse threat, and how he has introduced the Shield Act to prevent it. Then, Caroline Glick, of the Jerusalem Post, adds her perspective on the Muslim Brotherhood, and updates the situation with a second flotilla soon to be approaching Israel. Glick, also discusses Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton and wife of disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner, and her little known but strong family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood organization. Finally, Riki Ellison, founder of Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, talks about Iran’s launching of ballistic missiles and the changes needed in the missile defense budget to deter Iran and defend the Eastern border of the U.S.
