Here are the big stories on the agenda today:
- Breaking news this morning in two very important countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The United States has a lot riding on each one of these nations and is making that clear, especially in Pakistan, where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on the ground this morning. She flew in overnight on an un-announced trip. Her arrival comes at a time when anti-American sentiment is growing fast. A brand new attack overnight there killed dozens. A car bomb tore threw a packed market in Peshawar, killing least 90 people, many of them women.
- One month ago, an earthquake-triggered tsunami swept across American Samoa. The wall of water killed 34 people. One is still missing. Now a CNN investigation is uncovering evidence this natural disaster was in many ways a man-made tragedy. Why millions that we paid for an early warning system were never used for that purpose.
- “Sex for World Series tickets.” Police say a Phillies fan took her passion to a whole new level in an ad on Craigslist that read: "Diehard Phillies fan… gorgeous tall buxom blonde-in desperate need of two world series tickets… price negotiable. I’m the creative type!” Police say they then made contact with the woman and she offered to perform various sex acts in exchange for the tickets. That Phillies fan is now charged with prostitution. Game one tonight!
