In hour one of Here & Now's Feb. 13, 2018 full broadcast, NPR's Greg Myre joins us to discuss the latest as top intelligence officials testify about global threats before a Senate committee Tuesday. Also, we continue our series on China's "Belt and Road" initiative with a look at Khorgos, a remote town in Kazakhstan that's undergoing rapid development as a result of Chinese investment in a massive "dry port." And the much-anticipated Marvel superhero movie "Black Panther," the first to star a majority black cast, opens Friday. Author and journalist Jesse J.
