On today's edition of DaySide with Linda Vester:

Roots of Terror: A brand new book is causing a firestorm of controversy because it points out direct links between radical Islam and terrorism -- no holds barred! Meet the author, Irshad Manji, today on "DaySide."

Plus, a series of raids in Iraq net several members of the Al Qaeda terror network, military sources tell Fox News. Should we be surprised? We’ll ask David Frum, co-author of "An End to Evil"

Danger in the Air: Another Apache helicopter is shot down in Iraq. Do we need to change the way we fly over there? We’ll be joined by retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, Fox News military analyst.

Dean on the Defensive: The Democratic presidential frontrunner is striking back, saying he's tired of being treated “like a pin cushion.” What's going on? We’ll get a fair and balanced scorecard from Frank Donatelli, former political director for the Reagan administration, and Rich Masters, former policy adviser to Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La.

Inside Scoop: What happened at a high level meeting of Michael Jackson insiders just four days before the pop star's arraignment on charges of child molestation? We’ll get the 411 from Foxnews.com’s Roger Friedman.
