While the rest of the country is on orange alert, New York City has moved up to what some are calling "orange plus." This means even more police on the streets and Air Force fighter jets patrolling the skies.

But are enough precautions being taken? We’ll ask Mansoor Ijaz, Fox News foreign affairs analyst and member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Are coalition troops closing in on Saddam Hussein's No. 2 guy? We’ll get insight from retired U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Burton Moore, Fox News military analyst.

Plus, meet a selfless soldier who volunteered to stay in Iraq so a friend from his unit could go home instead to see his family for the holidays!

And, we nabbed Saddam within months of Iraq’s liberation. So why, after several years, have we not been able to zero in on America’s most wanted, Usama bin Laden? We’ll ask Husain Haqqani, former Pakistani diplomat and fellow at the Carnegie Endowment of International Peace.
