The NSA Leak Story

America found out about a secret National Security Agency plan to eavesdrop on international telephone calls and e-mails made in the United States to suspected Al Qaeda terrorists through an article in The New York Times. A book by The Times's reporter who broke the story is due out tomorrow, after its publication date was moved up. The Times says it sat on the NSA story for more than a year before going public with it. But has a good explanation been given for why the paper decided, after a personal plea from President Bush not to release the story, to publish the article in the first place? Was the paper afraid of getting scooped by the book written by its own reporter? Did The Times compromise national security by publishing the story? In short, does The New York Times still have a lot of explaining to do? We'll debate it with Marvin Kalb former moderator of NBC's "Meet the Press" and current a FOX News contributor.

About the Show

Fast-paced and hard-hitting, "Hannity & Colmes" brings viewers a heated discussion in a nightly face-off. Relishing in controversial topics, personalities and social issues, conservative radio commentator Sean Hannity and liberal radio personality Alan Colmes offer their points-of-view in an often animated, always compelling debate.

But, unlike similar debate shows — which often appear scripted — "Hannity & Colmes" conducts a live, spur of the moment deliberation on politics and social topics. Also, differentiating the show is its dedication to "move away from the Beltway," bringing audiences an alternative discussion program without the "in" comments.

Adding fuel to the fire, several high-profile guests have joined the program on a wide-range of topics.

"With guests who are 'in the middle of the fight,' we're able to hear their point-of-view on the topics, as well as advance our own feelings," said Hannity.

"Believe it or not, I agree with that statement," quipped Colmes.
