There will be a Senate Showdown over the Patriot Act this weekend. Lawmakers return to the capitol at 4pm ET on Sunday and will review whether to extend the Patriot Act or reform it. It could come down to the final hour. And Hillary Clinton is holding closed events in Florida, but it’s her close friends coming under scrutiny again, with news that ally Sid Blumenthal was on the Clinton Foundation payroll earning ten thousand dollars a month while he also provided advice to then-Secretary of State Clinton on Libya. Last week Clinton said Blumenthal was an old friend, and that from time to time he did send her unsolicited emails.

US officials, on Wednesday, said the arrest of 14 people on corruption charges is just the beginning of their investigation into FIFA, the governing body of world soccer. But will anything change? FIFA says it plans to go ahead with elections scheduled for Friday, as scheduled, when controversial leader Sepp Blatter appears poised to win a fifth term. The organization also says it has no plans to move the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. But if sponsors start to back away, will FIFA be forced to change…something?

Imagine a group that have Saddam’s former military as their trainers, his ruthless intelligence service controlling ISIS soldiers and the general population, now dominating a majority of Syria and a significant portion of Iraq. That is ISIS. With 50 to 100 recruits arriving each week, programmed to kill everyone who does not follow their interpretation of Islam, they are capturing the minds of youth around the world. Brad discusses the threat and appeal of ISIS as well as how our current approach to fighting them is showing signs of not being an effective long term solution.

President Obama’s strategy to combat ISIS has come under increasing attack. And it hasn’t been just Republicans and foreign foes doing the attacking. On Tuesday, France warned that the US led coalition’s strategy against ISIS … of which it was the first nation to sign up…is not working, and more needs to be done to stop the division of Iraq or Syria or both. Then there’s Ryan Crocker, a former US ambassador to Iraq and the man the White House appointed to try to fix Afghanistan. In a withering critique of the President, Crocker said that “our (read Obama’s) inaction since 2011 — and I mean political inaction more than military — leads us to today.”
