According to the European Union (search), the bird flu virus found in Turkish poultry is the H5N1 strain that scientists worry might mutate into a human virus and spark a pandemic. How concerned should we be? And what is the likelihood of an outbreak in the U.S.? We'll get insight from Dr. Pascal James Imperato, distinguished professor and chair of the Department of Preventative Medicine and Community Health at the State University of New York Health Science Center.

Then, an organization sending truckloads of supplies to quake-stricken South Asia describes its efforts as a "jihad" to help earthquake victims. But it's a group that reportedly also has ties to terrorists. So could the humanitarian aid be misused? Arabic media analyst Mamoun Fandy, a senior fellow at the Baker Institute, weighs in.

Plus, the suspected 20th 9/11 hijacker is suing the feds to be released from Guantanamo (search). U.S. Military records show the captive was forced to strip naked and perform dog tricks. Are these interrogation tactics legal? We'll ask Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
