According to a brand new report by the Council on Foreign Relations the homeland remains "dangerously unprepared" for another major terror attack.

We’ll examine what authorities are doing to keep us safe at home with Jamie Metzl, director of the report for the Council on Foreign Relations, and Howard Safir, former New York Police Department commissioner.

Authorities are questioning the teammates of Patrick Dennehy (search), the Baylor University basketball player went missing more than two weeks ago. We'll ask Pat Brown, criminal profiler and author of Killing for Sport: Inside the Mind of Serial Killers, and John Cunningham, professor at Baylor University.

Plus, believe it or not, in nearly half of all U.S. states teachers are allowed to hit your kids with wooden paddles. But as one of those states rethinks its paddling law, a firestorm of debate rages. We’ll get a fair and balanced debate with Michaela Curtis, whose son was paddled in school; Grant Storms, a pastor who is for corporal punishment in schools, and Jimmy Dunn, president of People Opposed to Paddling Students.

And, will Operation Sidewinder, the sweep to round up Iraqi resisters and end this new wave of attacks on American soldiers, keep our soldiers safe in Iraq? Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tim Eads, FOX News military analyst, weighs in.
