What’s on Tap – Friday September 25, 2009

Here are the big stories on the agenda today.

  • Damning new evidence against the man at the center of a fast-growing terrorism investigation – and more terror arrests in separate alleged plots across the country.  A video obtained exclusively by CNN appears to show Najibullah Zazi buying chemicals, namely hydrogen peroxide from a beauty shop in Denver.  When asked why he needs so much hair care product, a clerk says he answered “I have a lot of girlfriends.”  Zazi is now in federal custody. This is now part of what is being called the most serious plot since 9/11.
  • President Obama is expected to make a statement at 8:30 this morning.  The New York Times is reporting that the U.S., Britain and France will accuse Iran of building a secret nuclear site.  But Iran may have beaten them to the punch.  Tehran sent a letter to the international nuclear watch-dog, the IAEA, admitting that a second nuclear site does exist.
  • “You kids are gonna pay, someday.” We hear older Americans say that every day about health care reform.  But do young people care?  Several polls say they are willing to pay more., but do they really understand what it's going to cost them?  Carol Costello looks at some mind boggling numbers and the fallout for future generations.
  • It’s one of the most amazing gold hauls in history.  And it was by a jobless man with a metal detector.  No, not “that guy” on the beach, but on a farm in Europe.  You have to see it to believe it.

    Let's get out of Iraq and Afghanistan now!!!! Use the money saved from continuing these wars to fund universal health and continue the fight against terrorists within our borders, including the financial terrorists residing on Wall St. and K St., and let Israel know, through "back channels" that it is time for them to take out Irans nuclear program permanently. We have been paying them for to long not to get something of consequence out of the deal.
