Rebecca Heinrichs expresses her views on the repercussions of Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s agreement on the European Union’s “Code of Conduct” relating the rules in space. Why would the United States join such a code of conduct? Could this make the U.S. vulnerable in space, and how?

John Bolton, former UN ambassador sits with Fred Grandy to analyze and discuss whether the U.S. is safer and more respected around the world. Is the United States stronger than it was under the last administration? If the U.S. is indeed a stronger and respected nation, why has Iran continuously disregarded the United States’ “no nuclear weapons” warning? Ambassador Bolton analyzes about the consequences of Iran’s threat to shut down the Strait of Hormuz. How will it affect the U.S.? Can the United States avert this threat?

Jim Hanson evaluates the situation in Afghanistan. Has the U.S. crushed the Taliban momentum? Will Afghanistan again become a leader in terrorism around the world? Will Afghanistan attack the United States? Hanson then examines the issue of Afghan security forces turning on and killing their U.S. and NATO trainers.

Dr. Peter Pham sheds light on the matter of an overwhelming onslaught of radical Islam in Nigeria and the terror unleashed by Boko Haram, an Islamist terrorist group in the country. Are there ties between Boko Haram and Al-Shabab? Should the U.S. and the world intervene and provide aid of any kind to Nigeria to deal with this problem?
