Here are the big stories on the agenda today:

  • Breaking news now.  Protesters are gathering in the streets for a third day in Tehran, Iran, facing off against secret police with batons and baseball bats.  They say the reelection of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was rigged.  Iran’s supreme leader has now said any legal challenges will be investigated.  We’re live on the streets as people gather for what is being deemed an illegal protest this morning.
  • Your safety in the skies  Federal regulators holding a rare airline industry summit today to address some major concerns about the safety of passengers flying the nation's regional airlines.
    CNN’s Allan Chernoff was the man who exposed some scary things at the country’s smaller carriers.  He’s covering the hearing for us today.
  • Here a czar. There a czar. The Obama Administration is handing out the title left and right. Well, maybe not so much right… Carol Costello is with us now to tell us what's behind the powerful title.  And how many are we up to now?

    What is the meaning of the two extended fingers, similar to our "Victory", or "Peace" signs, Iranians are using in their protests of this election?

    Why are you covering Iran more than a country that is threatening nuclear war? Whats wrong with you people. who cares who voted. the nkorea issue is real and affects americans more, but you refuse to really cover it. you are spending more time talking about what the "talks" with iran and their nuclear program are up too than a country that is testing them and threatening to use them. to me I think it is a disgrace!

    I think that most of the people of Iran want better relations with the western world and with Ahmadinejad as president he has shown and said that he wants and is the most powerful nation. Also the supreme leader and the Mullahs who are in charge believe the same. Until the supreme leader has a change of heart and wants to work with the western world for a peaceful middle east without terrorists it does not matter who is president. The supreme leader and the Mullahs must come to know that God wants us all to love each other no matter what religion people might believe in. God loves us all and treats us as equal to each other because we all sin and for this reason he gave his only begotten son to die on the cross so that we all might be saved! The Islamic world along with the Jews must and will come to know this and bow down to Jesus in the end as it is written in the new testament of the Holy Bible.
