On Fox News Sunday this week: Americans begin to adjust to the new normal in airline security but nearly five years after 9/11, are we doing enough?


With the foiling of a transatlantic terrorist plot to take down aircraft with liquid explosives, domestic officials have raised the bar for what airline passengers can carry on to flights.

While authorities vouch for the safety of flights, is enough being done to ensure passenger security? Are we looking ahead to confront future threats or are we merely responding to the enemy? And is it now time to consider profiling passengers instead of randomly selecting fliers for security checks?

To answer questions, we will host a panel of experts including, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Pete King (R-NY), former head of security for the Israeli Airport Authority, Rafi Ron, and former Presidential Counterterrorism Adviser, Rand Beers.

Then, we'll bring in a senior foreign policy voice from Congress and possible 2008 presidential contender, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.), to analyze the latest developments at home and abroad in the war on terror and Iraq. A federal judge Thursday struck down the president’s National Security Agency domestic surveillance program as unconstitutional. Where does that ruling leave U.S. capabilities in fighting the war on terrorism in the aftermath of the latest plot?

Also, where does the U.S. stand in the Middle East with the shaky cease-fire between Lebanon and Israel and continuing sectarian violence and mounting casualties in Iraq? And, what are the implications of the continuing regional strife on domestic politics and the upcoming midterm elections?

Our Fox News Sunday panel will then provide its analysis of the latest developments in domestic politics and international news. The Sunday panel will include Fox News Managing Editor Brit Hume, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol, Roll Call Executive Editor Mort Kondracke and New York Times Reporter Anne Kornblut.

Finally, our power player of the week, the new Washington Nationals owner Mark Lerner, is working to make sure major league baseball finally stays in the nations capital for good.

So check your local listings and we'll see you on the next Fox News Sunday,
