Despite growing terror threats and recent conflicts with Iran, retired four-star General Barry McCaffrey tells host Joni Balter the U.S. has never been more secure. He uses historical context to justify his claim saying it's highly unlikely our naval or air forces will run into anyone who is even remotely a competitor. MCaffrey also discusses Seattle's vulnerability to a North Korean attack, plus the damage done by President Trump to our defensive alliances. Then, meet the four new members of the Seattle City Council. Tammy Morales, Alex Pedersen, Dan Strauss, and Andrew Lewis share their thoughts on the downtown crime problem, a proposed countywide tax, the Third Avenue transit corridor, and how they feel about "Seattle Kraken" as a potential name for the city's future NHL team!
