Could the next World War come through your computer? We have an exclusive interview with the Leaders of the House Intelligence Committee – Republican Mike Rogers of Michigan and Democrat Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland. We’ll also address North Korea’s ramped up rhetoric and the narrowing window of opportunity to talk Iran from the nuclear ledge.
From the battlefields in Iraq to the battles on Capitol Hill, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) join us to discuss how their experiences in combat shape their policy positions today, ten years after Shock and Awe.
Speaking of shock and awe, Republicans are still reeling from their election losses in 2012. As the conservative wing of the party gathers in DC to rally the faithful, the Republican Party chairman readies his election autopsy. Can the Grand Ol’ Party recover and court new voters before the next race? Plus, Rand Paul sounds presidential, Marco Rubio doesn’t sound off on immigration and Paul Ryan’s budget proposal sounds very familiar. Our political panel sounds off – Al Cardenas of the American Conservative Union, Democratic Strategist KiKi McLean, Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona and a new face in the political world, Dr. Ben Carson.
Watch it Sunday at 9am & NOON ET.

Facebook question from James Mills:
If you could interview 3 people from history, who would it be? Why?
– Amelia Earhart because as a young girl I found her story so fascinating and I want to know for sure what happened to her, where she crashed and how it happened.
– Martin Luther King because I want to ask him what he thinks of 2013.
– And Albert Einstein because I'd like to see if I could carry on a conversation with him.
Facebook question from Ryan Himes:
What was your first job in the industry and what education/skills did you acquire before hand for your resume?
I was a newsroom assistant at a local Washington, DC FM radio station. As part of the job, I did the morning rounds of police and fireman calls to see what had happened overnight. Since the Washington area has multiple jurisdictions, this was my first opportunity to learn the art of developing a source, which quite honestly comes down to trust, yours for your sources and your sources for you. It was also when I first realized that perhaps the most important news tip you can get from a source is what they won’t say. The hole in information is what you take to the next source.
