BRIAN'S OPENING THOUGHTS
After a relaxing, long weekend, Brian's back and looking for answers! What is Eric Holder covering up? Why was the IRS targeting certain people? Did Holder lie under oath about the Rosen investigation?
John Tesh, musician, author and radio talk show host, talked about his newest venture, the launch of Intelligence for your Life TV. Tesh said because of his competitive personality, his dream is to have his new show compete against Entertainment Tonight, which he was formerly a co-host of. He also talked about his love for the show TMZ on TV: "They're transparent, I love that," he said, "I love transparency, it's the way you guys are on FOX & Friends."

Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, Senior Fellow for Advanced Defense Studies, weighed in on President Obama's speech in light of what happened in Boston and in London, and compared it to the movie Jaws: "We have sharks circling in the water. They are very much moving forward to do what sharks do: they bite. In this case the shark is al-Qaeda, they're coming back."
Brian's co-host on FOX & Friends, Gretchen Carlson, talked to Brian about the relaxing, long Memorial Day weekend she had in the Caribbean! Carlson also weighed in on the weekend news and the IRS investigation: "You have to wonder the impact that the IRS had in squashing those tea party groups. The impact that had on the tea party movement in general," Carlson said.
Greg Palkot, Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent based in London, gave Brian the latest news from Britain after the horrific beheading of a soldier in broad daylight by an Islamic extremist. Palkot said that within two days, there is going to be a parliamentary panel that will be asking hard questions pertaining to whether or not MI5 (the British FBI equivalent) dropped the ball on tracking the Islamic extremists behind the attack.
Joe Perscio, distinguished historian and author of Roosevelt's Centurions: FDR and the Commanders He Led to Victory in World War II, talked to Brian about why he decided to write this book. Perscio said he had always been curious about Roosevelt. "Here was a man who had never worn a uniform for a day in his life, but he'd always been very interested in the military," he explained.
