Our guests this week include:
Fran Townsend (D-Md.), White House Homeland Security Adviser
Senator Kit Bond (R-Mo.) Ranking Member, Intelligence Committee

Senator Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), Intelligence Committee

This week: A new declassified intelligence report reveals a resurgent Al Qaeda is rebuilding its capacity power in Pakistan and is intent on striking within the U.S. Nearly six years into the war on terror, how serious is the new threat and has the effort thus far been successful? We’ll ask one of the president’s top advisers on homeland security and counter-terrorism, Fran Townsend.

Then, the perspective from Congress. What is the state of the war on terrorism and is the war in Iraq a distraction or the central front in that fight? Also, what is the Senate’s next move on Iraq after spending all day and all night debating a possible troop withdrawal issue this week? Military leaders are asking for more time. Democrats say their clock has hit midnight. A "fair and balanced" debate with two key Senators from the Select Committee on Intelligence — top Republican Kit Bond (Mo.) and Democrat Evan Bayh (Ind.).
