How many people with radical beliefs are infiltrating our institutions, prisons and military? We'll get insight from Steve Emerson, author of "American Jihad," and Irshad Manji, author of "The Trouble with Islam."

Then, Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes has been sent to Muslim regions to reach out to Muslim women and help improve America's image.
