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.
