What’s on Tap – Wednesday May 6, 2009

Here are the big stories on the agenda today.

  • High-stakes talks at the White House today.  In just hours, President Obama sits down with the leaders of Afghanistan and Pakistan.  It's the first test for the president's ambitious strategy aimed at helping the two nations tackle the growing threat from the Taliban, al Qaeda, and other Islamic militants
  • Michael Savage, banned from Britain.  The out-spoken conservative radio host is the most notable name on a list of banned individuals from Britain’s Home Secretary.  Savage appears along with white supremacists and Islamic clerics, banned for, quote – "stirring up hatred."  Savage is saying it’s a threat to free speech.
  • $328,000 of your money to get a picture of Air Force One with New York City in the background… and you won’t even get to see it.  The White House now says it’s keeping the photos classified.  It’s already been accused of “felony stupidity” by one former homeland security adviser for the flyover that terrified New Yorkers who feared another 9/11.  May be reason enough to bury the photos for good.
  • From porn to politics.  Adult film star Stormy Daniels joins us live.  She’s on a listening tour across Louisiana, considering a run against David Vitter for Senate.  He, coincidentally was in the DC Madam’s “little black book.”
