Brussels attacks and terrorism; Honest Flint water assessment task force

- This week's Let It Rip covers the attacks in Brussels, terrorism and the governor's call for an honest assessment of Flint's water.

Part 1: Brussels attacks and terrorism

The attacks in Belgium -- Is this just the beginning of the terror in Europe, and is it heading for the United States? What about Ted Cruz's call for more police patrols in Muslim neighborhoods? Is keeping a close eye on Muslim enclaves here in America considered Islamaphobic, or common sense to prevent the same kind of tragedy in our back yard?

On the panel:
Brig. Michael McDaniel, a lawyer, professor and retired brigadier general with the National Guard, an expert in homeland security and counter terrorism.

Ned Timmons, a former FBI agent who now runs his own private security firm, has been in dangerous situations all over the world, surviving shootouts, raids and three bomb attacks.

Dr. Mansoor Qureshi, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, wants to make sure that the phrase "stopping terrorism" doesn't mean hating all Muslims. He condemns the attacks in Brussels, but fears the growing backlash promoted by some of the people running for president.

Andrew "Rocky" Raczkowski, a businessman and conservative, another former soldier who's spent time on the front lines overseas.  He believes there are very few things off limits when it comes to protecting the American people.

Part 2: Honest Flint water assessment task force

Gov. Rick Snyder asked a task force to give him an honest assessment of the water crisis.

On the panel:
Chris Kolb, president of the Michigan Environmental Council and a former Democratic lawmaker, a member of the Flint water task force.

Dr. Matthew Davis, a professor of pediatrics and internal medicine at the University of Michigan Health System, as well as a professor of public policy, another member of the Flint water task force.

Brig. Michael McDaniel, not only a fighter when it comes to homeland security, but also a fighter when it comes to clean, secure water, in charge of removing dangerous lead pipes in Flint.

Wendy Day, vice chair of grassroots outreach for the Michigan Republican Party.
