President Biden’s trip to Israel on Wednesday was upended following a deadly explosion at a hospital in Gaza City. In spite of canceled meetings with the Palestinian Authority leader and King of Jordan, Biden appeared in Tel Aviv and pledged American support to the nation of Israel as they fight their war on the terror group Hamas. FOX News Contributor and retired CIA Clandestine Services officer Dan Hoffman joins the Rundown to discuss why he doesn’t think the United States will send troops to the Middle East and what it would take for Israel to succeed if they launch a ground invasion in Gaza to root out Hamas.

Iran remains a major concern for U.S. officials following Israel’s escalating conflict with the terror group Hamas in Gaza. Tehran has long been known as one of the largest state sponsors of terrorism in the world, and their leadership has warned they have plans to carry out preemptive action against Israel. Biden administration officials have announced new sanctions against both Hamas and Iran, but will this be effective in preventing the war from escalating? Former U.S. State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus joins the Rundown to explain how a UN embargo policy lapsing became a major national security threat, her belief that the White House’s Iran policy is failing, why sanctions won’t work a “silver bullet,” and the troubling pattern of U.S. adversaries avoiding the consequences of sanctions.
