Author of Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, Andrew McCarthy, weighed in on the truth about the "Arab Spring."  McCarthy also talked about "The Blind Sheikh," Omar Abdel-Rahman, who he prosecuted for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombings.  He explained to Brian why the U.S. cannot give Abdel-Rahman a chance to get out of his life prison sentence and how it would help the Muslim brotherhood.

FOX News' National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin weighed in on how the sequester will affect the defense department.  "There are things that could be cut.  The problem is the way sequester is set up.  It does not give the military services or the Defense Secretary an ability to do this in a reasoned manner."

K.T. McFarland, FOX News National Security Analyst, weighed in on how the defense department will be affected by sequester.  "The problem though is how are you cutting defense?" McFarland went onto explain Obama's flawed way of cutting defense: "If you just take the meat cleaver and say '10 percent off the top, everyone gets a haircut,' that's probably not the best thing for the United States' National Security," she said.


Technology expert Chris Pirillo talked to Brian about the future of radio, and how we will be listening to radio in the future.  "As much as we keep hearing about apps, apps, apps, I don't think they are going away anytime soon.  They are a great way of organizing content."

Pirillo said that individuals don't even need to pay for satellite radio in their car anymore with the advances in Smartphone technology: "In my car, I do have the option for Satellite radio. I'm not paying for it because I can easily get to Pandora and stream over a 4G connection on my Smartphone.  So why would I pay for something I can get for free?"
