Bob says "the Obama administration has been dreadful on this," and he encourages the administration to stop the digital snooping and be more transparent. Then, the panel tackles the role of U.S. leadership around the world. Is it fading it? Do other countries take it seriously? Chrystia says "There's a bad feeling about executive leadership in the U.S." among other world leaders. Meanwhile, the Gaza ceasefire has ended, and reports indicate Hamas has kidnapped an Israeli soldier. Yet, in traditional and social media, there's been an outpouring of support for Gaza residents. Rich says that the backlash against Israel "is the propaganda Hamas depends on. Hamas is a terror group that is awful for peace in the region. Also, we discuss the prospects of the GOP in Congress moving towards impeachment.

The Iraqi’s should make their own history and defeat [ISIS].”  Meanwhile, the crisis in Israel and Gaza continues, with some prominent left-wing Israelis supporting their government’s actions against Hamas. Rich praises that stance, and adds that the ongoing global backlash against Israel is another sign that “if Jews die, Hamas wins.
