With Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Claudia Rosett, Rep. Duncan Hunter, Peter Pham

Congressman Ros-Lehtinen: “[The Iranians are] the ones who started the fire, and now we’re going to call on Iran to be the firefighter. It makes no sense.”

Congressman Hunter: “Just because we’re killing the same group of guys that the Iranians are trying to kill [it] doesn’t make us co-conspirators with the Iranians. Because at some point…things could switch and we may be looking at each other across the end of a gun barrel.”

Rep. ILEANA ROS-LEHTINEN, of Florida’s 27th Congressional District:

  • Will President Obama seek Congressional approval to launch airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq?
  • Ways in which U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has prompted a contemplation of allying with Iran
  • Iran’s continuing strides towards a nuclear weapon, and the Administration’s attempt to go around strict sanctions on the regime
  • Controversy over the Palestinian Unity Government—composed of Fatah and Hamas–benefiting from American tax dollars and political support

CLAUDIA ROSETT, of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies:

  • Iran’s past actions that would make it an untrustworthy ally in Iraq
  • North Korea and Iran’s ongoing weapons collaboration, and the likelihood that NK will assist Iran in testing a nuclear weapon
  • Putin’s supposed move to lessen Russian military involvement in Ukraine

Rep. DUNCAN HUNTER, of California’s 50th Congressional District:

  • Thoughts on the direction the U.S. should take in Iraq
  • American military power projections, and concern that the DoD’s capabilities have not kept up with budget increases
