As chatter from Al Qaeda increases, America goes back on high, or "orange alert" (search) -- just days before a big travel weekend.

Were the attacks on western targets in Saudi Arabia and Morocco last week a prelude to an attack on the homeland? And is enough being done to keep you safe? We’ll ask Rep. Chris Cox, R-Calif., chairman of the new House Select Committee on Homeland Security.

Plus, new threats from a reported aide to Usama bin Laden: more reason for concern? Jonathan Schanzer, fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and Stephen Schwartz, senior policy analyst for the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and the author of The Two Faces of Islam, join the debate.

And, three members of the U.S. Marine Corps. 24th Expeditionary Unit: Captain Dan McSweeney, Sgt. Dennis Macaulay and Sgt. Charles Rodriguez, fresh from service in Iraq, join us with an inspiring story about an American flag that they brought with them into every battle.
