U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel walks from a blackhawk helicopter as he ends his first trip to Afghanistan as Secretary of Defense.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel made his first overseas trip to Afghanistan as head of the Pentagon. By most accounts, it wasn’t exactly a diplomatic success. In this week's Washington Report, David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, talks to Marc Garber  about the bumps and bruises from the trip, as well as the debate that is brewing over how much can be cut from the defense budget.

Also, the jobs report saw a large bump last month, which sent the stock market surging. But are we setting ourselves up for a crash?
