Bret Baier gives you a sneak peek of the next show

 

A top U.S. commander in the Pacific on Wednesday said he believes Hawaii needs more missile interceptors in response to the growing threat on North Korea and Pyongyang’s capability to launch a rocket.

Adm. Harry Harris told the House Armed Services Committee that Hawaii’s defenses were sufficient for now, but could one day be overwhelmed in an onslaught.

He could not comment on the precise capability of the U.S.' defenses, but he said, "I do believe that the numbers could be improved. In other words, we need more interceptors."
