Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness, details the fraudulent inspector general report for the Department of Defense on implementing the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” in which a foregone conclusion was made. Donnelly asserts that the study was fixed to comply with the Administration’s agenda for a “San Francisco Military,” when in actuality our forces are not in favor of repeal, nor ready. She also explains what effects the repeal may have on retention and effectiveness of the military, particularly in the Middle East, where homosexuality is punishable by death. How’s that for a recruitment tool? Next, Congressman Frank Wolf, representing Virginia’s 10th district, addresses concerns for the Transportation Security Administration’s lack of cohesiveness in its management. As Directors shuffle in and out every several years, the TSA lacks the organization to establish a legitimate policy. The TSA recently introduced its fifth Administrator in nine years, and Wolf says it is time for new Director John Pistole to take the reins and establish an enduring strategy. Zuhdi Jasser, Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, joins Frank to discuss his mission for the “separation of mosque and state,” as political Islam has hijacked the Muslim religion. Jasser stresses that the Muslim Brotherhood is not reflective of all Muslims, but also the importance for moderates, like him, to be ardent in vocalizing their stance against radical Islam. Zuhdi also explains how the Obama Administration’s “Big Tent” approach is inadequate in its Counterterrorism strategy, and instead should clearly identify the abhorrent extremist ideology and then align with those who also reject it. Finally, Washington Times Columnist Bill Gertz demonstrates his expertise from “Inside the Ring,” as he reports on China’s development of an Electromagnetic Pulse weapon, which may be in preparation for a land invasion of Taiwan. Gertz also informs on the CIA’s approach to Iran’s nuclear program and the proposed defense cuts to military benefits, and what that means for an all-volunteer force.
