Tonight... get on the record with Greta!

He took on Democratic Presidential Candidate and former Vermont Governor Howard Dean (search) over race at the Iowa Brown and Black Presidential Forum (search) last night. This evening, Al Sharpton goes on the record!

Fellow Democrat and presidential candidate Sharpton forced Dean to acknowledge that no blacks or Hispanics served in his cabinet during 12 years as governor.

Sharpton said, "while I respect the fact you brought race into this campaign, you ought to talk freely and openly about whether you went out of the box to try to do something about race in your home state and have experience with working with blacks and browns at peer level, not as just friends you might have had in college," Sharpton said.

Dean responded, "I will take a back seat to no one in my commitment to civil rights in the United States of America."

We'll hear what the candidate has to say about Dean and how he expects to perform in the Iowa Caucuses (search) next Monday.

Plus, Fox News has confirmed that the nation's terror alert level was raised to orange in the weeks leading up to the holiday season because of threats that Al Qaeda (search) was possibly looking to use explosives on Air France flights. 

For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, a U.S. intelligence source was able to give officials such specific information about how Usama bin Laden's (search) terror group may be planning imminent attacks in the United States using commercial airliners, U.S. officials confirmed to Fox News.

Is our country getting safer? Are we more in control now? What kind of intelligence sources has the U.S. developed since the terror attacks? Does this mean we may be getting very close to nabbing Bin Laden? We'll have the latest.

Also, as prosecutors and the defense team gear up for the Martha Stewart (search) trial a new Web site takes the domestic diva's message straight to the people. Will it work? We'll ask our legal eagles, criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor Bernie Grimm, criminal defense attorney and former Washington, D.C. homicide detective Ted Williams and criminal defense attorney Geoffrey Feiger to weigh in.

All these stories and much, much more!
