With Adam Kredo, Clare Lopez, Jim Hanson, and Diana West.
From the Washington Free Beacon, ADAM KREDO explains the series of unprecedented events that led to Hagel’s nomination yesterday, and predicts what will happen when looming defense cuts descend at the end of the week.
CLARE LOPEZ, senior fellow at radicalislam.org, wonders what is happening at Fordow nuclear plant in Iran, the site of a possible underground nuclear explosion, and criticizes Secretary Kerry for openly talking of arming Syrian rebels of which at least 1/4 are Al Qaeda affilitates.
JIM HANSON, from blackfive.net, expresses his fears about what Hagel’s nomination will mean for US national security, explains President Karzai’s edict expelling US forces from Wardak province in Afghanistan, and reports what sequestration cuts will mean for countless Army units.
DIANA WEST, nationally syndicated columnist and author of the upcoming American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character, criticizes the House and the Senate for “absolutely surrender[ing] their roles” as a check on the executive power, and explains how President Obama is effectively working off of a new constitution that doesn’t recognize as equals the other two branches of government.
