What new eyes do we need on old challenges to create solutions?

We ask this question as we look at two of the biggest developing headlines this week - American service members killed in action in the Middle East by Iranian-backed militants and the ongoing coverage of the U.S. borders.

A few highlights:

2:45: A former Air Force Intel officer says he may have discovered Amelia Earthart's plane

11:15: Why do we use the term "Iranian-backed" militants?

19:40: Our guest tells us that the UN nuclear watchdog agency says it is being "held hostage" by Iran, unable to provide oversight on the nuclear program belonging to the U.S. designated state-sponsor of terror.

23:40 What do the new border numbers tell us about the state of affairs specifically at the U.S. southern border and who really has oversight - the federal government or the state?

Plus ~ a personal tribute to a man who always wore a smile and knew how to show up.
