Wednesday, April 21: Al Qaeda Calling Card?

On today's edition of "DaySide" with Linda Vester:

Al Qaeda? A string of car bombs rocks Basra (search), killing dozens of Iraqis and destroying a bus full of little children. Is Usama bin Laden’s terror network to blame? We’ll ask Brigadier General Mark Kimmitt, deputy coalition director of military operations, and Dan Senor, senior adviser to the U.S. Presidential Envoy Paul Bremer and spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority.

Saudi Bombings: Saudi Arabia was also attacked Wednesday. What was the target and what was the message? We’ll get reaction from the Pentagon.

Oil Spill: The United Nations Security Council gets ready to go forward with an investigation into the Iraqi Oil for Food scandal. Does this raise questions about the U.N.'s ability to help shape Iraq's interim government?

War Record: After all the controversy over President Bush’s military service, Sen. John Kerry is under fire. Some veterans are raising questions about the injuries that won Kerry three Purple Hearts in Vietnam. We’ll investigate with John Dalton, former secretary of the Navy under President Clinton, and Christine Iverson, spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee.

Indictment Soon? There are reports that Michael Jackson could be indicted at any moment today. We’ll get reaction from Ernie Rizzo, private investigator hired by the family of Jackson’s alleged victim in the 1993 molestation case, and Yale Galanter, criminal defense attorney.

Plus, what’s the best way to ruin your financial life? We’ll ask author Ben Stein.

And, why does the newly-crowned Miss USA want to go to Iraq? We’ll ask her.

We'll have those stories and more!
