Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Malcolm Nance, Charlie Winter, Damian Paletta

Tuesday’s attacks in Brussels further proved that ISIS is a continued threat. The American government and the governments of European and Middle Eastern nations are trying to figure out ways to contain and minimize the dangers that the terrorist network pose to their citizens. Today, we begin the show by speaking with counterterrorism expert and consultant MALCOLM NANCE and jihadist movement researcher CHARLIE WINTER about how ISIS operates and the ways to counter their efforts.  Then, we’ll hear from The Wall Street Journal’s DAMIAN PALETTA to discuss what the presidential candidates’ responses to the terror attacks in Brussels tell us about their foreign policy perspectives.
