We'll get reaction from James Carafano, homeland security analyst and national security analyst at the Heritage Foundation.

Then, are jihadists using woman, including Western women, to carry out their mission? Mark Hosenball of Newsweek magazine weighs in.

And, why is there an increased number of deadly heart attacks in December? We'll ask Dr. Steven Garner of New York Methodist Hospital.
