Responses from all over the world have been pouring in after the terrorist attacks that shook the Belgian capital of Brussels today.

U.S. presidential candidates have weighed in with some taking the opportunity to criticize President Obama’s foreign policy and national security and others saying that the attacks would only succeed in uniting the rest of the world against violence and terror.

Still, in the wake of these kind of attacks, many want more than just a promise to solve the problem and a pledge to devote resources to doing so.

How should the U.S. respond to these attacks?

Guests:

William Wechsler, senior fellow for counterterrorism and special operations at the Center for American Progress and former deputy assistant secretary of defense for special operations and combating terrorism

Danielle Pletka, senior vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute (currently in Switzerland). She tweets @dpletka

Glen Winn, an expert in aviation safety and security and an instructor with the Aviation Safety and Security Program at USC
