Terror in Turkey, SCOTUS on Abortion, Brexit Fallout

Hosted by , and

A terror attack at Istanbul's Ataturk airport appears to have been planned by ISIS. Are there lessons to be learned? Security expert Juliette Kayyem says there is a mythology that if we put more resources toward security it will prevent all of these attacks. "As those of us who have travelled this airport know, it is not a warm and fuzzy experience." The Supreme Court strikes down abortion clinic restrictions. "This is a big, bold statement" Dahlia Lithwick says. Britain struggles to deal with the aftermath of the Brexit vote. Should people in the United States care so much, Josh Barro asks. "I have a strong opinion that they should have stayed, but is that weird? I wouldn't vote to join with Mexico and Canada." And Rich Lowry marks July Fourth with a quote fro John Adams who said it "ought to be celebrated by pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other."

Josh Barro (Business Insider) moderates from the Center. Rich Lowry (National Review) is on the Right. On the Left, Dahlia Lithwick (Slate.com). Julliette Kayyem (Host of the WGBH News Podcast Security Mom) is our special guest.
